Randomly, my beloved battle-axe necklace started to smell really bad…. this oily, decaying, fecal smell that I can’t describe any better than I just have but that makes me gag. I have a tendency to finger the necklace when I’m thinking about something, and then the smell gets on my hands. I really have no idea where it came from, but it’s death horrible evil bad. To date I have washed the thing in every cleaning substance I own, and let it soak in nice-smelling alcohol hand sanitizer for 48 hours… but the smell has returned. I don’t know what to do. Mayhap it is a manifestation of my guilt and won’t go away until I mend my ways. Anyway, it’s driving me up the wall. That’s all.
