things change

'Stick Pin'  4.75" sterling silver, stick;  Kathleen Faulkner

Back in the day
when running free was a given 
no worries about touching
or being in close quarters
 a sneeze brought a

Community of stick pins. Kathleen Faulkner

filled to the brim

'COVID safe' stick pin, 4" sterling silver, paper,
gouache, mica;  Kathleen Faulkner

Today's stick pin is fully covered
for protection
no direct contact
social distancing is currently in place
as it sits in a box 
on a table.
