Estelle | Hearts and Lace Collection: Part 4

Lo, the last installment in the Hearts and Lace collection has dawned upon us!

The name Estelle has long been a favourite of mine - derived from the Latin root word Stella, meaning star and popularised by Charles Dickens for his character Estella in Great Expectations. I first came upon the name while watching the 1992 modern-telling of Great Expectations, starring the starry-eyed, earnest Ethan Hawke and the beautiful but cold and unattainable Gwyneth Paltrow. The movie, for some inexplicable reason, has stayed with me throughout the years. Anyway, this post is not about movies. 

Onto the accessory I have named Estelle:
 Black lace, an intricate celtic heart pendant and a single silver-black crystal - a lone star.
 This piece has a distinctive gothic vibe to it, though the flower-patterned lace and the swirls in the celtic heart soften it a little.
It almost looks like a bookmark - also rather short in length, because it is measured to fit my bony wrists. 
Orders for this will be made to your specifications.

Item Code & Name: 108 Estelle
Price: RM14.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Black Lace, Celtic Heart Pendant, Silver-Black Chinese Crystal Doughnuts
Measurements: Approximately 14.5cm (including clasp) (Remakes can be adjusted to the customer's wrist length)

I shall leave you with some snippets from the movie, accompanied by a song that I have loved since watching that movie - the haunting and wistful Life in Mono.

The stranger sang a theme
From someone else's dream
The leaves began to fall
And no one spoke at all
But I can't seem to recall
When you came along
