Disney has upped the ante by asking the jeweller Tom Binns to create six special designs inspired by “Alice in Wonderland,” its forthcoming digital 3-D feature directed by Tim Burton.
Each one is based on an event or character, including the Mad Hatter (played by Johnny Depp), the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) and Binns\’s favorite, the evil Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter).
“For her necklace, I interspersed red lacquered hearts with vicious little pins and thorns,” says Binns, who is known for his love of the surreal. “With â€˜Alice,\’ I could be my mad self, but in the context of Tim Burton\’s â€˜Alice,\’ my madness actually seemed rather tame.”
The limited-edition pieces, including the broken-teacup necklace shown here, will retail for $1,000 to $1,500 in the spring.
Look for a lower-priced collection, Tom Binns for Disney Couture, to be sold at the Tom Binns Megastore in New York and other boutiques.
I really love this little bracelet although I can imagine smashing it very easily!
