As a rhetorician, one becomes aware that everything is a message, an argument, a statement. Because of this, clothing becomes much more than a utility, meant to avoid nakedness. No, all cloths are essentially costume, constructing a narrative about the one wearing the costume, building their character, displaying their imagination.
I've always felt that jewelry is one of the most telling aspects of a person's costume. It shows so much about a person's inner world, their imagination, their taste, their fancies, their personality. In a way, one could imagine each piece of jewelry as a character itself, which the wearer seeks to relate to, imitate, or befriend. A form of identification as well as imagination.
This is one of my favorite necklaces. I got it for less than $3, but it's lasted for quite some time.
Here's a picture of the character which this personified necklace is in my imagination. By wearing the necklace, I hope to snatch and exude a bit of her grace, suave, and seductiveness.
