Lettre Skinny Chain ~~ Neo Victorian Vintage Brass Love Letter Key and Pearl Layering Necklace

In the recent style of skinny chains, I release to you Lettre, that is French for letter, specifically a love letter. This vintage bronze is layered with a key charm and a lavender glass pearl topped with Swarovski crystal charm. Then, I finished the chain with crystals adjacent to the lobster clasp for an elegant neckline. (29 inches)

What I find so amusing about obtaining anything from  China is the translation gap. Apparently, there is an assumption that anything used with the standard Latin alphabet should be congruent. My French is a little rusty and I wanted to know what the opening phrase, "Lo lette est arrive Elle debarde de la memore" meant. I know "est arrive" referred to "has arrived" but got bogged down on the rest. So, to Google I went. The best response was as follow!

"Sounds like Chinglesh!! Part of it is in French...; 'lo' summer has arrived. She over flows with memories...This could be something else than French... Patois maybe"

So, in the willing suspension of disbelief :) I have chosen to release Lettre as a menage of love, hope, willingness and expectation.

See on Etsy here. I have more pictures:)
