**WARNING: THIS POST IS NOT SPOILER FREE**
While those of us who call ourselves Revengers wait for the show’s return on December 8th, I took to my jewelry-making venture and made necklaces inspired by three of the female characters on ABC’s Revenge. To see the “Emily/Amanda”-inspired piece, click here. But, first…give “Charlotte” her turn in the spotlight.
Grayson Clarke” is a young woman torn apart by family. Raised in an affluent household, she lived a carefree life until her world crumbled around her. The revelation of her true parentage rattled her and had her searching for a place to call home and an identity that was all her own. She found the unconditional love she never got from the Graysons (her brother, Daniel, notwithstanding) through the love of “Declan Porter” and her half-sister, “Amanda”. She even found a friend in “Emily”, not knowing that “Emily” is actually “Amanda”. Confused, watch the show!
After numerous tragic events within a short period of time, Charlotte underwent a reinvention of sorts. She’s tougher, independent, and even a mini version of her mother. She’s taken the helm of her own life and in doing so, has distanced herself from “Emily”. Where not long ago she found a confidante and mentor in her brother’s fiancée, now she questions, distrusts, and even seeks to end the relationship. Princess Lotte remains in the dark as to her familial connection with “Emily”. So as she sets out to push “Daniel” towards happiness, she’s also destroying the plan her half-sister has put in motion.
Torn between two lives and ultimately two strong women, “Charlotte’s” necklace reflects a young woman attempting to take control of her life. I added ruby-red accent beads to tie in her relationship to “Emily/Amanda”. Plus, if my prediction is correct, the nautical theme will be quite apropos when Revenge takes it winter break.
