Pretending Necklace


2018 wasn’t a great year for me. It was full of bitterness and pain and pretending. I had pretend to not be suffering, I had to pretend smile, and I had to pretend to be happy for other people when I wasn’t in a place to be. This necklace is a falling flower. It symbolizes the most beautiful thing falling down and dying. “Pretending” is inscribed on the back.
