This one makes me think of that movie, Water for Elephants.   Could this piece be channeling dear Rosie, from the movie?   Another great creation in perfect Five and Dime style from Maddy Gourley.  All you'd need is a Nehru jacket and a turtleneck....and this necklace...and the mid 60's.
"Woo Hoo!!! Absolutely love..."
