A Thaumatrope is a two sided disk, usually made of paper, with one part of an image on one side, the other on the reverse. When spun, the two images combine. They were very popular in the Victorian era. If you've seen the Tim Burton film "Sleepy Hollow", Johnny Depp's character Ichabod Crane has one.

Drawing on this concept, the images here have been encased under thick plastic, framed in plated silver and attached to a silver plated 24 inch chain. It works just like a regular Thaumatrope - spin the pendant and you will see the images combine.

Because the chain of this necklace is long (24 inches) you can even do this whilst wearing it. An excellent distraction in a boring class or office!

This is the third design in my Thaumatrope series and combines my signature crow with my signature cage! When combined, the bird appears to be inside the cage. Stop the spinning and you will see the bird has cleverly escaped!

All findings and chain are silver plated. The chain is 24 inches long and the pendant is 2.5 cm across. Hanging next to the clasp is a tiny silver plate and glass Mymble's Daughter crow charm.

Whilst this necklace is waterproof to a certain extent, please do not wear it in the shower, expose it to condensation or submerge it in water!

Please note that the materials used to make this piece are vintage stock and as such you may find some slight imperfections in the surface.

Please see my store for more pendants, necklaces and charm designs...

The Mymble's Daughter is inspired by castles in the air, pirates, mermaids, secret islands, fairytales, little goth girls, black roses, midnight skies and other mysteries...
