The Looks That Kill…

She's got the looks that kill and the weapons to back it up! 

During my process of creation, I often imagine what it was like to be the original carrier of these older pieces I find in my travels. I'd imagine the wearer of this Cinnamon Girl necklace to be mysterious and loves the darker things in life, she comes out whenever it rains and dances on graves. Jet black hair and always quick to fight.

Amongst darling pearls and crystals, is an antique Mother of Pearl two blade pocket knife, that is cuddled with a vintage brass dog tag with beautiful engraved letters reading "Cinnamonson, NJ 637, 1973". This interesting combination was inspired by the song "Backstreets" by the boss, a lovely place for a fight, stray dogs and a quick get away while you run for your life.

A silver pewter bullet hangs in solitude ready for a mad man on the loose, you can only call upon one man to get the job done right! Dr. Van Helsing always comes prepared with his small case filled with reliquaries, such talismans and weapons as a holy water flask, wolf bane, a crucifix and for the ultimate kill; a pure silver bullet. This silver bullet pendant necklace is a legend of itself, telling the tale of Doctor V. in his slaying adventures with monsters, including Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein's monster, Dracula and werewolves. 

The Van Helsing Talisman, was quick to arrive in my shop this week but had a short stay. Someone recently bought this necklace however in the near future I will be either making a similar necklace with silver bullet, either dedicated to Dr. V or lycanthropes…stay tuned.
