Today's featured item: Rock you like a hurricane!
Scorpions are tough little insects. They are able to slow down their metabolism enough to live off of one meal per year. They are also able to adapt to both the hot desert and very cold climates. In fact, researchers have frozen a scorpion, then thawed it out the next day and it survived. Creepy! Yet somewhat awesome!
And if you don't know about Loteria, it is a Mexican game similar to bingo. The game consists of a series of cards with different, darling little images. El Alacran is the scorpion card, from where this image is taken.
I'm am really excited about this piece. I think the 7 strands of gold-toned chains add an interesting and unexpecte 1920's art deco element to this chocker. Also, the colors are perfect for fall!
