One thought on ““Tam Lin” Necklace 1”

  1. Jenny made this gorgeous necklace inspired by the ballad of “Tam Lin” for our October 2016 course “‘An Eerie Tale to Tell’: Folklore for All Hallows Eve.” She says: “I was struck in the ballad by the contrasts between Janet and the Fairy Queen – Janet, the rose, representing life, love, lush growth and fertility. The FQ representing love as power-over, hard, the reigning monarch, unyielding and vengeful if provoked. So the 2 sided pendant was designed first to express this contrast, and conflict. The necklace portion, predominantly green as was Janet’s oft mentioned kirtle… does include some stoney grey. But the green is in the majority… as Janet won her love in the end.”
