The Star & Chain – Text

Heres a typed copy of the text I am working on for this project,

Star and Chain

In 1961, during a visit to Provincetown, Massachusetts, I
bought a hand-crafted one-of-a-kind Star of David on a
chain. I wore it all the time. In 1981 the chain broke while I
was swimming in the ocean off Atlantic city, and I lost it in
the surf. In 1991, during Christmas vacation, my fifteen-year-
old son and I were poking around in an antique shop in Lake
Placid, New York, when a piece of jewelery caught his eye. He
called me over to take a look. It was the Star of David that
had been swallowed up by the ocean ten years before.

I feel its quite a heartfelt piece which even though written like a story, has all the meaning of a poem included in it as well. Some bits are almost a little too bit vague on the details but its a nice little story because you can kind of relate to it in a way, if not exactly then emotionally at least you had those feelings.


Star and Chain Ideas & Drawings

November 20, 2008

After looking at the poem as a group and individually having our own ideas about the story, we each decided to go away and draw up sketches and ideas of what the story might look like. My first idea was to start setting the scene and start drawing a few ideas of what the surroundings might look like and what the shop and beaches would look like as well.


Here I took completed a few drawings and notes to what ideas I had during the time.
