The stuff of dreams:

Brutal hot mid-western August day: We pile into father’s ’55 T-Bird, tumble out at the State Fair, and the Annual Adventure of Our Lives begins. Sister has the skate key so that we can sail and glide across the steaming black asphalt… from the midway to the thrill-rides and  farm buildings, jam-packed with 4H teenagers, chickens, pigs, sheep and goats, stinky in the heat but we don’t mind. Rumor has it there was a brief appearance of aliens at the Fair one year, and sister swore she saw a UFO the night before when she looked out our bedroom window just before midnight. We do not believe her, though we shiver at the thought. Probably just a shooting star, we say, streaking across the sky as we slept dreaming of hot miniature fried donuts, covered in sugar and cinnamon.

The Dreamland necklaces are delicate poems of another time (past or future), crafted with a curation of ancient and new materials gathered across decades and continents. On this necklace you will find a feedsack quilt scrap heart, Czech glass beads, a skate key charm, a memeto mori ceramic skull, vintage dice, velvet milinery flowers, and potentially a space ship, but that can not be verified. Please note: ’55 T-Bird not included; you’ll need your own ride to the Fair.

The readymade necklace pictured here is available as shown and ready to ship. It is one continuous length (approx. 52″) knotted on silk cord and can be worn long or doubled.
