Start from the vision of a suddenly broken beaded necklace, from which all beads seem to escape, falling down to the ground and bouncing away. My English is imperfect, yet a sentence I can think of would be:
The *** beads broke away from the neck of their elegant hostess.
I thought about unleashed, unchained, freed, released, yet I cannot catch this positive (like a child joy) feeling.
Is there and what is an adjective to describe how this inanimate object (bead) seems animated by free will (and freedom)?
