Tia Dalma was originally the goddess Calypso. During this time, Davy Jones fell in love with her. Calypso gave him the task of guiding the spirits of the dead lost at sea and Jones accepted the task out of love for her. However, she scorned him when he returned to see her ten years later.
Feeling jilted, Davy Jones made a secret agreement with the Pirate Lords. He showed them how to bind her to human form using Pieces of Eight; and thus, at the first Brethren Court, the pirates "captured the Sea Goddess, and bound her in her bones." Her binding tamed the seas and satisfied Jones's desire for vengeance. This entrapment could only be reversed if the Brethren Court reassembled, resubmitted the original nine Pieces of Eight they used to bind her, and burned them.

In human form, Tia Dalma was a practitioner of voodoo and was known as a mystic and witch doctor. She resided in a shack on the Pantano River in Cuba.
She was considered to be the greatest mystic in the Caribbean.
In her shack , one would find things such as bones, mystical stones, magic powders , potions, secret apothecaries, and of course skulls.

"Malfaiteur en Tombeau, Crochir l'Esplanade, Dans l'Fond d'l'eau!", the phrase Calypso yells out when she is freed from her bonds, roughly translates to "Across all the seas, find the path to he who wrongfully entombed me!"

I am so mesmerized by the Tia Dalma and her unearthly powers. Can't decide whether I like her better in human form or as the sea Goddess.
She is darkfully flirty and seductive. Partly the reasons why Davy Jones fell in love with her in the first place.

A trio of necklaces - or neck-art if you will.
In this presentation, I have created Calypso in 3 different ways- For your wearing pleasure:

Necklace #1 ~Calypso in love:
This is the shortest simplest necklace is 16" long - features tiny white sea coral chips alternating with ash black cultured pearls dotted on a 17" necklace of copper plaque chain. Up front a longer section of the grouping appears, while smaller sections appear further up on either side of the necklace. You get a FREE pair of earrings, that match this necklace or the whole ensemble.

Necklace # 2~ Calypso, Wild & Untamed - The true form Calypso , Goddess of the sea who has just been set free from her human form and having had all her anger bottled up for some time, becomes a very unsettled sea generating whirlpools and colossal waves, she is out for revenge!
This necklace is the middle lengthed one and features a trove of huge red coral branches, white abalone tusks, small white coral chips, ash black cultured pearls, and Mother of Pearl nuggets. Copper plaque chain finishes this baby off to 23".

Necklace #3~ Calypso, Refined & Opulent - The Tia Dalma or human form Calypso
This necklace is the longest , across a wire, lies red coral branches, abalone teeth, and ash black cultured pearls with mother of pearl nuggets at either end. This necklace is finished off to 26", the necklace is dotted with several more ash black pearls.

All 3 necklaces have the same type chain - a vintage copper & brass tiny plaque chain

You get all three necklaces and you may wear them however your little heart desires. The shortest one looks stunning alone or with the longest one. The middle one is certainly a show stopper & conversation piece all on its own. I personally am addicted to the look of how all three go together so well.
I have taken several photos of how they can be interchanged. Five photo spots was just not enough for this Goddess!

I was just so thrilled at how this whole ensemble came out. This is the fruit of about a week's worth of labour, and I hope the wearer will truly Enjoy this one of a kind wearable art assemblage!

p.s We have a bracelet that will match any one or all of these necklaces found here:

p.s.s If you buy both this Neck ensemble & the bracelet, I will give you 10% off ( yes, this is even if we are already having a sale in the shop! You need do nothing~ I will automatically refund you!

I hope you enjoy my handmade creations, or that special vintage notion you found in my shop!
