When I was younger, I didn’t like pink. In fact, if anyone would’ve asked, I probably would’ve said I hated it. But something happened around age 35 and I suddenly started loving pink. Now, pink or at least pinkish is a standard color in my wardrobe.
While I really don’t think of myself this way, I am, at heart, a girly-girl. I love make up and jewelry and pretty curls, I played with baby dolls and barbies as a child (and still do when the opportunity arises), and I love flowers and color and all the things that manly men lift their noses to.
All this to say that I am in love with this bracelet, largely because of its color scheme: Pink!
I should probably take a moment to say that even though I do use certain stones, like the rose quartz, for their representation or symbolism, I am not someone who believes in the power of stones to heal or the mysticism of crystals or anything like that. I like the idea of it, but that’s about it.
Ahem. Back to the jewelry.
I said I’d be using more garnet, and so I am:
These earrings are red garnet with sterling silver and I like them a whole lot. All and all, I’m really enjoying my work in the past week, which is good, because I’ve got a whole lot more to do by June 2.
