Top of the Tower

I have to confess I've been hanging onto this pendant, because I really like the way it turned out. Sort of turning it over in my hands, extending the time to look at the colors and patterns.

It has a line drawing of the Eiffel Tower looking very vintage on it. With a simple brass wire loop at the top for a chain to pass through.

But I went ahead and listed it in the shop, in its fancy black ornate frame. It reminds me of the Left Bank flea markets in Paris, an antique souvenir of the Paris at the turn of the century.

If you have a warm place in your heart for things Parisian, or if you are longing to travel and see the City of Lights, this is the one for you.

Ooh! That is lovely! I'm teaching a literature class right now on the Female Gothic and, for some reason, this pendant feels like that to me. Gothic but feminine. Rustic but elegant. Lovely!

Kim, I have relatives still in France, but I haven't been since I was a child, although my dad returned to visit family more recently.
