One week from today, Revenge returns to my television line-up…thank goodness! Last week I posted two blog entries, one for “Emily/Amanda” and one for “Charlotte.” Who better to round out this creative writing venture with than the matriarch herself – “Victoria”.
Representative of the Grayson matriarch’s spitfire personality and protective yet manipulative inclinations, I created a necklace design that’s a blend of royal violets and emerald-green crystals. Dubbed “Queen Victoria” by the show’s writers and fans, I choose a cameo pendant symbolizing elegance, class, and high-society. Plus, using a Victorian-style pendant was too perfect to pass up.
“Victoria Grayson” rules her world with fervor, determination, and ultimately a belief that she’s protecting her children. Her intentions may be good, but her methods cause mayhem and tragedy. Deep down, despite her faults, I am of the opinion that “Victoria’s” motives stem from envy. Jealousy of those who the love she lost and reflective of the choices she made to get her where she is now.
The Revenge writers created a character that you love to hate while also feeling sympathetic to her situation, though self-inflicted. “Victoria’s” portrayer, Madeleine Stowe, excels at bringing forth the complexities of her character. As such, this necklace represents not only “Queen V” but the elegance and talent that Ms. Stowe shares each week.
