I've seen this before, and I wonder if I've asked what specific ethnicity it is?

its not something specific but I would say apart from beeing native american in general, maybe it leans towards aztec style :)

You know the way this is framed, the first thing that really stands out are those utterly kissable lips, then the sensuous yummy neck. Too bad about the face though. Only then did I see the adornment. I guess I see past the clothing, lol.

This is lovely. Reminds me a lot of the assiniboine/cree aboriginal jewelry you see at local aboriginal events here (Winnipeg MB). :) Drapes wonderfully along the chest, and I love the black white and red. Keep up the good work!

Funny that these things are called chokers. Makes them sound violent.

Funny that it's "ethnic" as well. If it's an "inspired" recreation and therefore not an actual cultural tradition, does it really have to be "ethnic?"
Reply
:icondashinvaine:
dashinvaine Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013
Yes, 'ethnic choker' sounds like a serial killer who either derives from or targets a particular demographic. One of the stranger short hand/euphemisms in modern newspeak is the term 'ethnic' used for anything vaguely non-European in origin. Well, maybe a kilt would count.

:iconmelina-van-der-werf:
Melina-van-der-Werf Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
well, since I cannot know where the design originates from but looks kind of mayan I supposed ethnic is a more safe word to use :)

:icondashinvaine:
dashinvaine Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
yes, I thought it looked Mayan, or Native American of some sort.

:icondagoth-jeff:

I didn't see "non-European" under that definition...

Right, well that definition can get pretty vague, eh? The creation of invisible lines and borders across cultures and skin colors tend to blur when even the slightest possibility exists that, once upon a seafaring time, two distant peoples from two different lands suddenly created a baby. With this being the unknown variable for any proud member of any race, can we truly label ourselves? Hmm I'm pretty sure I'm white... am I not ethnic enough? What if there's Indian in there somewhere, can I be ethnic yet?
