When I was born

the family legend goes...

The story gets retold

till it becomes lore.

Cake and balloons

in lieu of gold coins

Gold or gems?

which do you like?

Tutti Fruitti type earrings

to match with clothes

There I sit, wide-eyed and bemused between the two women who have made me who I am.

Precious jewel, you glow, you shine, reflecting all the good things in the world.  Just look at yourself.

Maya Angelou

Jewellery has many definitions

what does it mean to you?

My life without jewels would be but a shadow.
