So, as you know this Website is about physical AND mental health. One way I like to stay healthy mentally is treat myself! And that’s exactly what I did with these earrings. And you will want to as well. This story is more about jewelry. It’s a continuing story, I’ll be sharing over the next few months about how I found the maker and why he is one heck of an inspiring guy. You will love him AND his jewelry.
First, part one of the story:
That was my first word as a baby.
My brothers—Mike & Steve, both older—would always take things from me. So, I learned to speak up & take action.
I haven’t changed much. Yep—I’m still a big baby. And so when I see something I like or want; I claim it or search for it: MINE!
That’s the case with these earrings I’m wearing.
They are the most beautiful, delicate, flower drop earrings I’ve ever seen. But what’s even more remarkable--the details behind these dazzling diamonds.
My search to find them would lead me to an incredible story of success, heartbreak, bravery, persistence & love.
But first let me tell you how the jewels appeared on my radar in the first place.
One of my best friends from High School who now lives in Malibu, California visited me here in Arizona more than a year ago.
Beth gets off the plane looking fabulous as always but the earrings she’s wearing? Stunning! I become obsessed with having a pair exactly like them.
But she’d received them as a month’s rent payment 10 years ago from a tenant staying in the maid’s cottage behind her home on the Pacific Ocean.
So, I set out to find a jeweler in town to re-create them. But the price was astronomical & many wanted *me* to choose each intricate part of the earring.
Then I would find Al on eBay.
Al is a New York City jewelry store owner, designer and artist with a shop close to Times Square. He creates stunning pieces. I buy two pair of his elegant, dangling earrings and I’m incredibly impressed with the quality & beauty.
The more I look at his jewelry, the more impressed I become. And then-- an idea strikes me! Ta-dah!
To be continued…..
