12 unique worry beads fabricated from recycled tin cans, stainless steel cable, brass tubing.
Each bead has sharp pinked edges which would make the beads very painful to handle. This is a metaphor for all the painful things we do to ourselves with food.
The tassel made from steel wire with constructed sterling silver ferrule looks very soft but is quite stiff and sharp.
Promised Gift to the Permanent Collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art
