Here, my beautiful, hand painted wooden necklace with Frida Kahlo on the front. I saw it years ago on ebay, and had to have it. Ironically, I've only worn it a few times, but it is one of my most favorite things.

Kahlo and Rivera are two of Mexico's most famous artists. However, they are also known for having a turbulent love affair that lasted over thirty years. When they met, she was a 15 year old schoolgirl, and he was her teacher. And did I mention that he was married? Nothing happened, not until six years later when they happened to meet each other once again. Thankfully, he was divorced (whew!) and the two fell in love. They married a year later.
