Have you ever had your eye on something but put off buying it because you didn't need it right then, or it was too much money, and then when you went back to buy it, it was gone? That happened to me with the Jonathan Adler Eve Hand. It came out a long time ago, and I immediately wanted it, but I put off buying it because I thought it was a little expensive for "just" an objet. I asked for it for Christmas once or twice, but alas, no one bought it for me. And now it's gone, discontinued. And of course, now my concept of what is expensive has changed so much, I wouldn't really hesitate at the price. It's all relative, right?
Though there are other, newer Eve pieces in the collection, this is the one I love. There's something in the positioning of her fingers, and the inclusion of the apple, which the newer pieces don't have. The apple and the snake, the symbolism of women and female power, and the portrayal of women throughout history—not only do I think it's a good-looking piece, but it really speaks to me, especially as I majored in women's studies.
So if anyone out there has this (in good condition) and no longer wants it, let me know! I've tried eBay and so far nothing, but I'll be keeping my eyes peeled.
Have you ever lost out on a piece you really wanted?
