On Second Thought...

About this design:

You know how somethings just don't sit right? They're okay, but there's a niggling feeling in the back of your brain. I wanted this necklace to have a vintage feel, but also a bit of eeriness, because the books and movie sort of creeped me out as a kid. I think the addition of the side closure and black silk ribbon added a bit more needed 'atmosphere' to this piece.

    Thanks! Someone mentioned on my blog that they thought the ribbon looked like the one Alice wore in the Disney movie. Curiouser and curiouser…
