An ornamental chain worn around the neck made from materials in varying sizes. As a teen, I had a favourite necklace. It was a simple black cord with a spring ring. The ornament that hung from it was a small clay mushroom, stem and head. Maybe an inch long, it was smooth with curved edges. They painted the mushroom with numerous tiny images and shapes. It was brightly coloured. It wasn’t fancy. But it was fun, and it felt magical. By contrast, I had a gold link lock chain with a glass slipper that felt magical in a different way.
