This whimsical cuff bracelet was inspired by my FAVORITE book when I was a little girl- Alice in Wonderland. I spent weeks wandering around my yard looking hoping to find rabbit holes to fall down or a talking disappearing cat hanging out in one of our trees after I first read about Alice’s adventures. I was always my mother’s daughter however, and did not search for anything labeled ‘drink me’ or ‘eat me’ as she had me convinced that the candy was probably poisoned. So, my first thought upon finding any such bottles or cakes that appeared to help me get into Wonderland would have been that they placed in my yard solely to serve some nefarious purpose.

I never encountered any rabbit hole portals to any fairy-tale lands, nor did I encounter a fat grinning philosophizing cat- but I still love the story.
