I bought this at my shop during the Part Time College Years. The necklace of black & silver beads appealed to me- it WANTED me. I resisted at first. The necklace has an aura I call Old Hippie, in contrast to the goofy hippie cuteness of say, Willow's sweaters from season three. And that was so my look, on the off-goth days.
But, I decided that at age 28? 29? that I was ready to embrace maturity, and my purchase of the necklace foreshadowed the impending grown up degree-earning and subsequent impregnation:D
