The chimera breathes fire. She has a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail. She's multidimensional and we're not even sure whether it's true: does she exist? Anyway, the Chimera necklace is a bit of everything: sky-blue glass in the shape of the moon, metal, sterling silver, and some semi-precious stones—everything repurposed, all thrown together. And yet! There is calmness and balance in this strange piece that looks regal and witty at the same time.
