Madame Fortuna Relic Cardinal Feather Necklace

Madame Fortuna Relic Cardinal Feather Necklace

I first spotted Madame Fortuna's "Relic" line at a great little shop called Sleep in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and immediately asked the sales lady who designed them. All the Relics are delicate hand-blown glass globes that contain a meaningful object - a Victorian die-cut, a petit-point rose, a scoop of red soil or yellow coral, or my favorite, an exquisite little feather from a robin, peacock, or cardinal. The prefab pieces are seriously breathtaking, but Madame Fortuna will also custom-make a Relic from the tiny object of your choice - putting an elegant new spin on the time capsule. It's early to start thinking about Valentine's Day and all, but I can tell you now that NO WOMAN ON EARTH CAN RESIST a personalized memento housed in a pretty little sphere - as long as it's in good taste, of course (hint: not her medication). From $175 at Etsy.
