So Penny Dreadful, who’s been watching? If you haven’t seen it I’ll sum up by saying its basically a gothic take on Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, where a whole host of literary characters like Dorian Gray and Victor Frankenstein co-mingle with gothic archetypes such as werewolves, witches and vampires, and the action revolves around original character Miss Vanessa Ives (a demon possessed scenery chewing Eva Green). It’s wonderfully melodramatic nonsense with a star-studded cast. Don’t expect tight plotting here, but it exudes atmosphere with aplomb. I thoroughly enjoy it.
As the curtains close on the second series of Penny Dreadful I have a hankering for ever more witchy jewellery so I’ve put together this little wish list inspired by it’s characters and all the wicked goings on in season 2. There’s even a silver scorpion ring for the little Scorpion herself, Miss Ives!
Clockwise from the top: 1. Moonstone secret vial pendant / 2. Labradorite Hecate Ring / 3. Silver 3D Scorpion ring /
4. Miniature silver skull stacking ring / 5. Garnet Love Spell ring/ 6. Pentagram Poison box ring
I totally want all of these jewels but if all that wasn’t witchy enough I’ll leave you with this solid
labradorite crystal skull from Empty Casket!
Have you been harbouring any witchy wants lately? What do you think of this little collection? And what are your guesses for the new literary character they are introducing in Penny Dreadful season 3?
