Cool Thing We Want #297: “Houdini Chain Link Necklace” From Henderson Dry Goods

It’s about this time of year that a girl starts to notice things here and there with an eye to adding them to her Christmas wish list. Like little beacons of frivolous light at the end of autumn’s tunnel, such trinkets are things to look forward to, like this wooden chain necklace made by Vancouver industrial designer Alex Henderson.  The 15″ necklace is available in three different woods (walnut, maple or ebonized walnut), and each one has one special link that has been gold leafed. So beautiful. Top. Of. The. List.
