jewelry giveaway numero uno. unfortunately, this is for tumblr users only. the next two giveaways will incorporate everybody but i felt the need to call out to my tumbling followers and friends. so the whole point of this blog is to style historical and literary (sometimes musical) personalities. as such, re-blog this post and add one of the below…do be sure that it is obvious how to e-mail you should you be the winner (include in re-blog or make sure it is clearly visible on your tumblr)
1: who in history or literature you could see wearing this and brief brief reasoning behind it
2: how you would wear this piece.
i want to make sure that wherever this ends up it will be used properly, needs to have a good home. also, some questions have been raised about the necklace. rest assured it is indeed a kate spade new york necklace and is brand new, never used and has a logo stamp on the clasp. it is also one of kind, not another one like it in the whole wide world, aren’t you lucky? good luck!
giveaway ends 12/20/09!
Upon seeing this necklace divine, I was immediately transported into the Dark Ages of Britain where the young adult novel Wise Child, by Monica Furlong takes place. The story weaves a dance of magic, both good and evil.
Wise Child is a young girl who lives with her grandmother after being deserted by her seafaring father Finbar and her mother, the extraordinarily beautiful Maeve the Fair. When Wise Child’s grandmother dies, she is taken to live with the wise and mysterious sorceress, Juniper.
Now, for the roll of the necklace: I imagine it to be a gift from Finbar’s travels to Persia to his beautiful but evil wife, Maeve. Turquoise is known for it’s magical qualities and Maeve is notorious for abusing such powers.
Excitement Drama of course ensues.
Story aside, I live in a land whose magic is reflected in the changing seasons and it’s draw to artists, magicians of their craft who brave the elements to reside in a place of rural inspiration. I live in Maine.
Maine style tends to lean towards comfort, warmth and practicality (especially as the temperatures dip below zero), but this necklace could easily transform a black cashmere turtleneck or be delightful peaking out from under a crimson velvet jacket. And in the case of a tropical vacation, worn with a simple white button down or flowing linen dress. No need for earrings and messy buns all around!
Whew, thanks for letting my imagination run wild.
