3-1.d. The final thing the Gypse Queen always does whenever she goes to a new place or time is help a person with a problem they face. All of these problems vary; the Gypsy Queen has helped to stop wars and has helped the Queen of England retrieve her stolen crown. She has freed a slave child digging for bood diamonds in Liberia and has rooted out an immoral facotry manager that treated his factory workers unjustly.

"One should Either be a Work of Art" - Oscar Wilde My latest passion has been for the beautifully macabre Victorian Mourning jewelry pieces. I love their eerie serenity and delicate, foreboding, creepiness ^_^ This beautiful vintage brass locket has delicate black tendrils of vines and flowers painted all around the front casing. There is a 1/2 inch hazel Lover's Eye portrait set into the center of the cover. The inside of the locket is lined with vintage 1900's scarlet velvet. This…
