Made myself a little happy 😁😁 locket + pearl + compass charm + filigree + quatrefoil charms = yay. Jeweler's cement for the win! 🤣 Fyi, the photos are of my Nana and Pappaw, circa 1942.....I really love lockets so I think this brings me to five or six different lockets (all of which are round or oval) lol. When you like something, buy it in every color, right? and funny story, the pearl came from one of those little kits you get at the beach where you buy the clam and it's guaranteed to have at least one pearl inside....the funny part is, when I bought it I didn't think about the fact that the clam contains a (stinky) dead animal and the pearl is in the middle of that mess 🤢🤐 I gotta be honest, I seriously considered throwing it in the trash because I was so grossed out. I also was in a hotel room without a decent knife to even pry it open. I can handle animals, most bugs, blood, etc....but I do not do slimy animals or anything with a strong smell. In high school I used to get nauseated every time I passed the anatomy labs and smelled the formaldehyde and I'm known for my extremely sensitive nose. I guess it was worth it to end up with something this pretty! 😆
Have you ever thought about why the pipers were piping? We're they celebrating something? Announcing something? Maybe an engagement? I mean, a lot of guys ask girls to marry them around Christmas time. And would you want 11 pipers piping? Seriously? That would be deafening! (nothing against our fan base of pipers.) We'll take the proposal over the pipers. And this ring would be just lovely. Who wouldn't say yes to this?
One more day left on our journey of the #TwelveDaysOfChristmas#SparkleSyle after today. What will tomorrow bring?
