Celebration of birth month continues with a vengeance.
Mom said she wanted to give me something I'd been wanting or needing for my birthday, and asked if I would like to choose. I knew just the thing- something I'd been hankering over for some time but just couldn't bring myself to spring for. I opted for both want- and need in the form of this play pretty by Candace Ang. I love her jewelry. This is laser-cut and -etched black lucite. Sorry, but it was hard to get a really clear picture of it while wearing it(my arms being under-long and all), and I thought if I photographed it on a flat surface you wouldn't get an idea of the scale, etc. There was also a sinuous snake necklace I really wanted, but I didn't want to appear too greedy. The snake was fabuloussssssss, but this is the one I liked best.
Anyhoo, it's sort of bohemian/goth/pirate or somesuch. Mebbe I need to institute International Festoon Like A Pirate Day, ya think? Love the skeleton and raven, and not just because it's October. The text-- I'm guessing this was from a woodcut or something-- is it latin Putre factio or Italian (putre? faccio?) I guess it is Halloweeny after all. I likes it. High stinking fashion, or some such.
Thanks for the prezzie, Mom. It's fabulous and I love it!
