I wanted to wear these rope necklaces for the longest time and I was looking for a perfect (fashion)story to go with it. The intention here was to wear it with an almost all black look so that the rope necklaces would blend well with the clothing pieces not for the necklace to stand out which is usually the case. Black forest was an appropriate term because theres something dark and nature inspired in the pieces. They remind me of the spiralling textured branches and vines. Added with that an almost 90s rave techno/steam punk feel (which i sometimes revisit). It was a dark moody day that went well with my moody outfit that spoke well of my moody disposition.



This wasnt a day that I would wear shots of color because I do that often to counter act my moods. This time I didnt fight the "dark feelings" i had and just let it express naturally in all black of course:)
