My Favorite

I spent a lot of time thinking about how to make this necklace, which is why I think I love it so much now! I am a huge fan of timeless characters like “The White Rabbit” and felt like I wanted to do something with that since vintage items are generally timeless themselves. Of course, the most popular aspect of The White Rabbit is his pocket watch so I wanted to incorporate that into the necklace, but how since I couldn’t find a small pocket watch? Well, I thought This if I have it hanging from a separate chain it would give the appearance of a pocket watch.

Some other special parts of the necklace are the beads I chose. They are antique beads that are blue and white. If I were to think of two colors that reminded me of Alice in Wonderland, blue and white are obvious for me so I tried to bring those colors in as well. Each bead was made into a charm and split up different sections of a vintage chain to add as much character to the necklace chain as the pendant itself.

After finishing this piece it was incredibly hard to put up for sale, but as this is why I made it I have had to let go J I hope that whatever home it finds will appreciate the little details that went into this very special necklace.
