The Shepherd Follows
Sterling Silver, Wool and Lavastone
50-Bead Handmade Prayer Rope

"Through black clouds the black sheep runs accursed,
And through black clouds the Shepherd follows him."

 -- G. K. Chesterton, The Black Virgin

Alright, this is an odd one.  Yes, that is a lock of wool from a black sheep -- it's wild, uncombed, curly, unruly -- and eventually it will become matted, we're sure -- just like in real life.  Anyone who's ever spent time around sheep knows that's how they are. That the Shepherd bothers to follow is amazing.

The cross is solid sterling silver -- large, substantial, and beautifully simple.
