EMERALD EARRINGS

For the first time ever I went to a St Patrick’s Day celebration earlier this year.  The funny thing is, I also went to my very first Burns Night this year as well.

Anyway, I thought it only appropriate to dress for the occasion by making a pair of earrings in the right colour – emerald green.

To complete the ensemble I went shopping for more accessories and found this lovely scarf and a bottle of nail polish in the right colour.  The beads for the earrings were in my bead stash but the scarf and polish came from a shop called Noz in Loches, France.

Noz is an acquired taste, a cross between a jumble sale and a pound shop, except that nothing is secondhand, it’s just that some of the stuff looks like it’s been around for a while.  The scarf and polish cost the equivalent of £2.20 altogether and both are of good quality.  The polish lasted for days before it started to chip off.

I enjoyed the evening too.
