Pop stars and royalty aren't all that different.  Both are cloaked in glamour and drama, just as both are pumped up public figures.  Indeed, here in the good old U. S. of A. we revere singer-songwriters more than any queen mother monarch.  And why not?  Whether dealing in iTunes or edicts, music notes or raging moats, or Jimmy Choos or glass slipper shoes, heavy is the head that wears the crown (or, in the case of chart toppers, industrial-grade hair extensions).  

The same is true of seahorses and unicorns.  Not the glamour thing or the stress thing, but the tenuous, forged-for-the-purposes-of-this-post connection thing.  Both are enchanted equines (at least semantically speaking), and both have been immortalized as My Little Ponies.  (If you don't believe me, or at least that I believe me, then mosey on over to this post touching upon seahorses and their terrestrial counterparts.  Hay, this isn't my first rodeo.)  Which kind of sort of but not quite explains the aesthetics behind this Seahorses vs. Unicorns Charm Necklace.    

The "vs." implies that they're fighting, but I like to think that they're friends.

I LOVE these new items so much! I'm a sucker for unicorns and they're so adorable on that necklace. The purse charm is so fun and quirky! :) Great job!
