SEED - WHAT
Original ArtOriginal Art
Each seed ring
and is traded
The one you choose,
is the one you get.
Living Semi-Precious Gems
Rare or unique seeds
tens of thousands
that fell from a tree,
with a natural hole for stringing
The original rosary of every religion
-Go Nature -
You are the Polish as well as the PolisherPolish Polisher
A co-created growing enriching relationship
made of you, by you.
The seed, new to you, is clean absorbent wood.
As you wear,
it absorbs oil,
Your ring will darken in colour, bonding with you.
- History Bond -
all our ups
come through our skin, through our oils,
polishing a history of our time.
The longer we wear,
the deeper the colour,
the deeper our history-bond.
this is personal jewellery you never share.
Let the seeds be oiled by you with your oil alone;
this is your tool to find your practice in your own way,
whatever that may be;
keep it personal,
keep it yours.
Caring for your seedsCare & Feeding
These living seeds,
if cared for, will live for hundreds of years.
Not too wet
Not too Dry
Too wet and the seed case will get the signal to sprout, cracking
the seed casing,
the endocarp. Occasional rain is fine, but maybe advisable to remove for washing dishes and bathing.
Too dry, and they will crack, they do not do as well living in a drawer. It is said, they are most alive when one wears them, active in the hand.
Oil, rubbed in
or rubbed away
Seeds getting clogged with standing oil will go black and die.
The seeds are living wood, they want to absorb protective oil, but do not want to be over soaked.
As we rub excess polish off furniture, we want to rub excess oil off our seeds.
To clean use a stiff brush
G-Bead PracticeGrounding Practice
The Coloured bead, ‘the G-bead’, is a marker.
A start-finish marker when one works a practice.
Loop the seed-ring over your fingers,
thumb on the G-bead.
With your thumb, pull onto the first seed,
give it a quarter turn.
Again, with your thumb, pull onto the second seed,
give it a quarter turn.
Repeat through all the seeds for a circumvolution
of the seed-ring, from G-bead, around the ring,
back to the G-bead.
After a complete revolution of the ring,
rather than continue in the same direction,
spin the seed-ring 180 degrees,
and continue in the direction from which you came.
This gives the practice swing,
the feel of a figure eight,
the flow of the infinity symbol.
