This week's trio features two more pieces that are part of what I've come to think of as my cool collars series because the felt "wings" flanking the pendants look like little peter pan collars about to take flight.  A mixed-media marriage of hardware and felt, these sassy hybrids open the door to ever more eccentric themes.  Take the Fabulous Felt Antique Octopus Necklace.  After finishing it, it occurred to me that our tentacled title character should've been surrounded by seashells instead of flowers.  But then, I kind of liked the incongruity.  Not to mention the "Octopus's Garden" connection that, for all I know, subconsciously fueled the entire enterprise.  Now, that's what I call strange serendipity.
