Opera Dress

Opera Dress

[For sale here on Etsy]


Inspired by the novel Palimpsest, by Catherynne M. Valente.


"Casimira's eyes move appraisingly over November, who feels very much like a child in her lavish clothes.
'The dress will do, I think. Next time I will know better what suits you.'
'Do for what?'
'I am taking you to the opera. How else shall we get to know one another? That is why you needed a dress. I do not care much for fashion, but a dress is like a sail, it must be held before one, colossal and dazzling, if one is to get anywhere at all.' "


Onyx, cobalt blue and golden glass crystals, bees and black cinnabar pendants shine and glitter amid royal blue ribbon. The necklace is 20.5 inches long, with a sterling silver toggle clasp and findings.

Queen of the Cat People, class with a cult following.
