This piece of jewelry, cut from a discarded drum cymbal, is inspired by D. Boon. His DIY (Do It Yourself) approach to his music as well as his personal lifestyle has influenced and united countless fans of his band, The Minutemen. Also, his signature guitar sound was said to be both "sharp and angular," which is reflected in the piece. It is my hope that the wearer of this necklace will be empowered by, what I believe, to be D. Boon's legacy: To live life in your own authentic way. To embrace the unknown, and to create your own path, independent of what society tells you. Follow your heart. Take a stand. And live your life the DIY way.
