Thumbelina Chain Fringed Pendant, Turquoise & Vintage Swarovski Crystal Necklace

When the story opens, a tiny girl emerges from a flower. She is named Thumbelina and is carried off by a toad. She escapes the toad and drifts on a lily pad until becoming the captive of a beetle. Eventually, she is given shelter by a field mouse who suggests she marry her neighbor, a mole.
