A necklace for me.

I recently commissioned a fellow artist, Francesca of InkandRoses13 on Etsy,  to create a fetish style necklace incorporating elements that to me are evocative of Voodoo.  And wow, did she ever come through.  If Mama Marie was alive today, its a necklace that would certainly make her sit up and take notice.

Who is Mama Marie you ask?  Marie Laveau, who was reputed to be a great Voodoo Queen in New Orleans.  There are many legends and stories about her, but very little is really historically known.  All mystery and magic aside, she appears to me to be a woman beyond her times, and a wonderful inspiration.

So where’s the necklace you ask?  Without further ado:


You know you want one too!!
