Remember when I told you that Samantha House made me two pieces right before my eyes when I visited her home studio a couple weeks ago? Well, the above two photos are the pieces she made me. The first was the Lauren Key necklaces, and the second are the super-long Slinky Earrings which I'm planning to wear in tandem from my left ear all summer long for a fun asymmetrical look.
This is when the story transitions from one of joy to one of woe... My first weekend in London, David and I stopped at London Bridge for a view of the city from the River Thames. As I leaned over to get a better view, my beautiful necklace hit the stone railing and shattered into a million* pieces! It was beyond tragic and I maybe sniffled a little bit as I knelt down and picked up the pieces. Despite my sadness, I'm sure I'll find another use for my silver agate and quartz beads again.
*Okay, more like five pieces.
