There's a woman down the way who designs and makes her own jewelry. It just happens to be the only jewelry I'm fond of wearing regularly. And the woman just happens to be my aunt. And I just happened to commission a few pieces.
One is for me. It's blingy!!!
See the CROWN on the tile pendant? It's glittery. I'm not really a glitter kind of girl unless we're talking about crowns. See the HATCHET?! Am I the only one who thinks this necklace is GENIUS?!!
Turn the tile pendant around and what do you get? Porn kills love, steam punky style. with glitter!
Guys, I'm wearing this to bed. It will get tangled in my hair and I'll be the girl at the conference with the hacked off hair and necklace full of straggly knots. And that's how you'll know me.
Because I just happen to personally know the woman who makes my favorite jewelry (and I swear I'm not just saying that out of family obligation or some weird fascination with nepotism...) I commissioned a mini-me.
When you wear it, the "porn kills love" is not visible... just wanted to make that clear. But the hatchet is. And you might have some 'ssplainin' to do when people say, "what's the deal with the hatchet and glittery crown?"
Possible answers may include *ahem* (I've been rehearsing these):
I've always loved the story of Henry the VIII.
What hatchet? (and then change the subject)
I plan taking the defunct government by storm with my hatchet... then I'll be queen.
I also highly suggest just wearing the necklace so the "porn kills love" is proudly displayed. One of two things will happen.
1) People will awkwardly pretend they didn't see the words on your necklace.
2) You'll get the opportunity to say something like, "I hate porn. I want to chop it."
I know I just gave away a hatchet charm... this I KNOW. I was getting antsy.
And on that note, please just leave a comment if you want it. You'll get TWO ENTRIES if you type your comment in CAPS because it will PROVE TO ME that you're AS EXCITED as I AM over THE AWESOMENESS of the NECKLACES!
If you're uncomfy leaving a comment, just shoot me an email. in caps.
I'll draw a winner Sunday night when I get home from the Conference!
I hope you win! Then you can smile so big your eyes disappear and the lines around your eyes come out to play (is it crazy that I love my lines?)
**disclaimer: I don't actually hold the idea of porn KILLING love since porn is hardly the actual problem. The actual problem is lust. But "porn kills love" feels more empowering to me than "lust kills love" and I'm the jewelry commissioner, so...**
