Wear the Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge, one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States, can now become an iconic part of your neckline. Fashioned by Tilly Bloom, an artist from Brooklyn the pendant comes with a 16" sterling silver chain. How does she do it for $18? I can't tell how big the pendant is. I would like to think it is biggish, like 3" long, but it seems smallish from the chain to pendant ratio.

"Each pendant is individually and lovingly hand drawn on strong, clear acrylic resin, a tricky and intricate process which results in a one-of-a-kind, wearable piece of art. A matte varnish is applied for strength and durability..." says the Tilly Bloom entry on Etsy.

Well, no doubt you've heard the stories of people trying to Sell the Brooklyn Bridge ('References to "selling the Brooklyn Bridge" abound in American culture, sometimes as examples of rural gullibility but more often in connection with an idea that strains credulity. For example, "If you believe that, I have a wonderful bargain for you…"'Wikipedia) and thus people just giggle at my offers of the Brooklyn Bridge. I say " Alas! You'll ruin me! I'll sell you the Brooklyn Bridge for $18" and they say "Ah well, $18 I can afford to risk".
The starting price was $26,000,000.
