Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Floating Leaves

A nearly invisible thread connects the two leaf pendants on this necklace, which makes it look like they're floating on your collarbone. The result is a gorgeous and unique piece of jewelry, although it might cause strangers to stare at your chest (not super enjoyable). And possibly start rumors that you're a witch (always enjoyable).
