No, it's not going to turn your neck green, silly. "Contaminated", as in "slightly tainted by other colours". Which is pretty cool, I think.
This is the mother lode - a very very small piece of discontinued Marimekko fabric that I've been saving, hoping to find more so that I can make a bigger piece of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels. Haven't had any luck so I thought why not just make a simple strand of "gems"?
I mean, all the major labels have "entry level" pieces so why can't The Empress Dowager's New Jewels have some too? Pieces which are smaller thus more affordable but still retains all the qualities that makes it a unique piece of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels.
So here you go, hopefully the first of many "entry-level" pieces to come, A Strand Of Contaminated Turquoise. I'd grab it if I were you.
