Harmony


To be honest, I called this necklace "Harmony", because the large brass beads in it reminded me of Chinese chime balls - you know, the type that come in a set of two and chime gently when you exercise with them in the palm of your hand. Perspective is a tricky issue, but the beads in this necklace are actually all quite oversized. This is a necklace that Wilma Flintstone would love to wear - very, very chunky. (Note the cool ceramic flower button by Diane Hawkey set in the clasp.)

It's been kind of a bad day. If I didn't have other obligations, I'd seriously consider throwing clothes in my suitcase, tucking the Short One (undoubtedly squawking) under my arm and hopping the next plane for an exotic, relaxing locale. As it is, I'm going to have to settle for the necklace and a pina colada, or some other fluffy drink. And maybe a shirley temple for the SO. Or something like that.

A pina colada also always reminds me of Rupert Holmes!

Hope your day improves!

I had to read your description twice--I thought it was a bracelet. Funny how our perspective can be so off in photos.

I know - I should have put a quarter in the photo or something...

i love the colors in the necklace and would really love to see it to scale... i hope you are feeling better... being that down when you are a person capable of putting things in perspective means it must have been very bad... almost the weekend -
