The Tamerlane’s work, in our opinion, captures this transitional feeling well. Depending on how the coin lands, the work can be interpreted as spooky, somber or unusually beautiful, an attitude we could apply to any day in September. The above necklace is a good example of how The Tamerlane’s work occupies different values of beauty and creepy at the same time.
The Tamerlane takes its name from an Edgar Allen Poe poem which you can read here. Normally, we don’t cater much to the romantics since there’s not much romance in our line of work, but why disqualify any variable. We like to remain open to everything, which is why we like the Mayan calendar necklace offered here by the Tamerlane. It’s a great example of an all encompassing attitude, which you can wear near your heart (if you possess one, either in your chest or in the chest where you keep your jewelery.)
If you’re in the neighborhood to catch the Crimson Ghosts show in Salem, Massachusetts this year, you’ll notice that the town is full of psychics, palm readers and all types of the crystal ball set. If you’re more of a DIY type, this palmistry necklace will help you figure out where your life is going. We’re lucky to have Madame Lady Ulster appear around town this time of year to peddle her fortune telling and future predicting. She used to stay with Larry down on Willow street for a while but he moved off to Tacoma a while back to get off the drink. Suppose she saw that coming. You can also be prepared for unexpected turns in your life with this handy guide.
