She had come to Red Rocks for another show. An old habit from college that she plans to keep for as long as possible. “It’s good to be back..,” she breathes, settling in to the upper suite’s plush couch. ‘This place was pretty deluxe. Apparently its the place where all the musicians stay. They said Eddy Vedder checked out of this room this very morning. Or was it Bob Weir? Maybe it was one of the guys from Dispatch? Anyhow, tomorrow, it’s Duran Duran, nice…’ She leans back to Nina Simone on the radio. Wool cushions brush against her touch. What’s this?! From between the seat & back she pulls a leather cord outfitted with a few brass rings. It’s a necklace! she breathes… “It’s a necklace and this is definitely rock ‘n roll attire,” she gasps. “But who’s?? Eddy’s, Stanton’s, Jon’s?” She pulls it around her neck and sets the ring just above her collar bone, checking herself in the mirror. She makes a fist and pumps it in the air. Rock! The talisman pendant doubles as a simple fidget spinner. She twirls it foreword & back: “Is it Eddy, Is it Stanton, is it Jon Rielly?” And finally with a smile, “Who cares- it’s all rock ‘n roll to me.”
From deep in the cushions, this necklace is dripping with audacious soul. At around 22″, it is meant to be worn long, with the ring set in the shallow just above your collar bone and the pendant hanging to your 3rd Chakra (that’s solar-plexus). Wear it under your shirt with an open collar to see the trance ring. Worn on top, this piece exudes a primitive opulence that would make Keith Richards swoon.
