Associativity Charm

The Associativity Charm™ is one of my portrait products, made for a friend who was feeling way too far from anything called home. It is intended to be used as a sensorial aid: when feeling lonely or out of place, you brush your fingertips on the rug’s surface and remember you are not only welcome, you are already here.
