We recently had a short holiday in Barcelona. It was not a success. Barcelona is a theives’ paradise and I fell foul of one of them. You can read all about it here if you’re interested.
Anyway, before we got to the stage where I was no longer in possession of my bag and wallet, we went to a market that was on the sea front and I treated myself to some jewellery. Because I make so much jewellery I rarely feel the need to buy anything but I thought this set, using jasper and lava stone rondelles, was lovely. It was not expensive and…….I was on holiday so I bought it.
The next day, when I no longer had my wallet, we stumbled upon a bead shop. The beads were not expensive and as I was penniless, my husband treated me to them. I probably bought fewer strands than if I had been in control of my own money but it was really nice of him to treat me!
I have worn the necklace set a lot already as it’s perfect for autumn in those colours. As for the strands, I don’t usually go for blue beads but there was obviously something subconscious going on and reflecting my mood. Possibly.
