Bride of Frankenstein Necklace

frankensteinThe name Frankenstein has become synonymous with the hideous creature that Mary Shelley created for her gothic novel, Frankenstein-The Modern Prometheus. At no time in the story does the fiend ever receive a name but does refer to itself as “the Adam” of Dr. Frankenstein’s labors. Named or not the monster desires a mate and Hollywood obliges.

The Bride of Frankenstein Necklace is understated elegance. Frosted quartz crystal fat rondels mirror the iconic coloring of the Bride’s lightning bolt hairdo. Faceted carnelian beads add a subtle but saturated orange hue to the piece. Sterling silver daisy spacers abut the carnelian accentuating the play of light and color against the cool quartz crystal. Bright bursts of pure light arise from the clear crystal faceted rondels that are intermittently spaced throughout the piece.

The Bride of Frankenstein necklace is slightly graduated, finished with a sterling silver clasp and is 19 ½” long.

Final Frontier Necklace

frontierWilliam Shatner as Capt. James T. Kirk. How can you not love the hammy actor in all his glory as he invites you along with his crew on the USS Enterprise to explore the universe. The iconic voice-over that states the purpose of the starship at the beginning of every episode:

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

It gets me every time.

Shatner is faintly ridiculous yet endearing as the bold king of fistiscuffs, Kirk. The slightly ludicrous portrayal of Kirk simply adds to the undying devotion and allegiance of all trekkies. Too much fun.

The Final Frontier Necklace is my shameless homage to this cult classic. Smooth sunstone nuggets are wire wrapped together and connected to a hand cast bronze link. Three strands of highly polished imperial jasper are wire wrapped just opposite the sunstone. Almond color swarovski pearls create a smooth transition between the wire wrapped sections and allows the piece to rest comfortably on the neck. Dangling from a round textured link is a bronze fleur-de-lis with a framed picture of Capt. Kirk.

The Final Frontier Necklace is 26” long and the picture pendant hangs 2 ½” from the link. The pendant is removable for those times when you don’t want to announce your Kirk crush.

Ridiculous or not, Kirk had some good lines. My favorite is the following:
“Genius doesn’t work on an assembly line basis. You can’t simply say, ‘Today I will be brilliant’ “
Food for thought.
