I have a fascination for tales of romance in which the lovers are only united or re-united in death. This means most American Hollywood movies dissatisfy my morbid passion. Can you guess why I love opera so much where the lovers die or kill themselves to be with their beloved? In honor of cheesy (yet still enjoyable) Valentines Day, here are a couple of my jewelry designs commemorating my favorite morbid love stories:Wuthering Heights: Who the hell said this is the quintessential love story? When I read the novel for the first time, three words rose to mind: dark, tormented, and insatiable.The Wuthering Heights Reversible Pendant features Catherine's silhouette on one side and Heathcliff's on the other. Two souls making one.Backside of pendant with Heathcliff.The quote says, "Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same." Catherine side:Catherine was no angel.The gorgeous Kirsten modeling the necklace:Looks like a modern day cameo.My other favorite morbid and classic love story: Romeo and Juliet.Can anyone rival this Shakespeare quote from Romeo & Juliet?The other side is much more subtle with a ruby representing love and the vine representing the perpetual cycle of life.Poem Necklace Gorgeous Kirsten once again modeling this necklace:Nothing looks bad on this girl. Just not fair.I hope you celebrate your Valentines Day tonight with your loved one, unlike the stories that drive my sense of romance.
