Silk & Opium
I stood on a boulevard paved with prim orange poppies, and suddenly I tasted brandy rolling down my throat, and pale smoke filling up my lungs. My green-scarved quarter was savoring her snifter and her opium somewhere far from me.
Inspired by the short story Palimpsest, free to read online:
A pale green ribbon flows around and over beads of green aventurine and golden yellow glass. 18.5 inches long with a 14k gold toggle clasp finishing the ends.
This is actually the first Palimpsest item I was inspired to make. There will be more ribbon necklaces, and bracelets, in the future. Possibly without the arcane associations ;-)
