The first time I saw this necklace I was smitten. At $150 it wasn't outrageous for a piece of art, but certainly expensive enough that I didn't buy it the instant I discovered it. In fact, I hemmed and hawed and almost ordered it for two years. I think it was the added costs of S/H and tax (because it's a Wisconsin company) that stopped me each time.
Until I realized that the number of times I'd dreamed about it and looked at it meant it would be worth the money. And it has been! It's 30 inches long, made of handcut and sewn wool cubes that look like my favorite licorice candies. Danielle Gori-Montanelli is the artist who created it along with a number of other felt designs that are sold through the artful home catalog/web site. This is a Madison organization and I've had a number of friends work there over the years, mainly in graphics and writing positions. The photo from the catalog (below) gives a good sense of how it looks on. Since it is wool felt, however, it may bother you if you have sensitive skin.
