I made Right Leg necklace wrapping myself. This thread bundle serves as inner core to make the necklace.

 

Every Purpose has a story. Here's Right Leg's.

"When I chose to repeat a path many times, a thicker line appears. It reminds me of those fluid pedestrian flow maps. It is an intention map.
Both legs are completely different. The wrapping of this leg was softer, without pain. I took the spool in my hands, went around calm and slowly. It took me some time with each leg to figure out how to wrap, until it became a mechanical act, a meditative ritual with no thinking involved. 
Since I only use my right hand to wrap, each leg has very different wrapping motion and result. Same thing for the moment of cutting myself free."
