"Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with, and then the different branches of arithmetic -- Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision."

To paraphrase Lady Bracknell, "To encounter one movie/high-end jewelry collaboration may be regarded as a misfortune; to encounter two is to identify an irritating new form of marketing." Though I admit I was attracted to several of the pieces that Pamela Love created as tie-ins for Spike Jonze's adaptation of "Where the Wild Things Are"...the news of a similar coupling...this time it's Tom Binns being 'inspired by' Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland...fills me with dread.

This kind of thing is all well and good when you're ten...the "jewelry" is made of plastic...and you're contemplating blowing your pocket money on a soon-to-be-broken-or-lost impulse purchase. It's a whole different kettle of fish when you're an adult...and considering spending $1,500 on a necklace decorated with broken teacups (no news on whether a snoring dormouse is lurking nearby).
