c r y s t a l s !

C r y s t a l s ...!
(my pendant. photo:me)
I have been pretty inspired by crystals recently. I have never, ever been one to shy away from shiny gemstones...in fact when I was about nine I had a gemstone collection in a little shiny blue box that I painted and threw silver glitter all over (is that nerdy? a gemstone collection? oh no). I had quarts in various colors, turquoises, cubic zirconia, moon stones and my favourite, Amethyst.
Thanks to the likes of Mui Mui, my new header (scroll up.) and Lisa Mitchell's new video for "Oh! Hark" (which I have been watching repeatedly...even if you don't like her -i do- you have to admit that the girls' got style), I have been on the search for a tear dropped shaped crystal that I could turn into a pendant.


On Saturday, at the market (is it just me or do all my blog posts these days mention 'at the market'?) I came across a lady who was selling chandeliers. When I asked her if she ever sold the crystals that had fallen off, she pulled out a whole box for me to choose from. Now I have my crystal pendant!


A u revoir!

Skechers said...

Skechersare quite different from the conventional sneakers as their unique sole helps walkers maintain a stable balance for a longer period of time, while helping to control any type of shocks on knees and ankles.
