This octopus has a story to tell and it's one of lost hours dreaming of wings to fly above the sea and soar through the clouds. The bird, too, dreams of a different kind of flying, soaring underwater in the dim and liquid depths. This necklace by Madelyn Smoak is a darker take on the eight-armed charmer. My pink and punky version begs for a striped tee shirt and glitter eyeliner; this one might just pull on a sweater and read poems under a tree.
Madelyn's work can be seen here. She's tremendous.
