Be unique

I have a true appreciation for designers/craftspeople/anyone who design original works of art. From graphic design to jewelry to the latest foodie trend, there's always someone out in front, with copycats on their tail to the point where an original becomes ubiquitous. Unfortunately.

I also wonder how those out in front take the lead. Is it luck? Talent? A really good snow job, like the Emperor's New Clothes? You know I mean? Something everyone is raving about and you just don't get it?

So when I saw this necklace I was wowed! I don't even wear jewelry and this made me stop and appreciate it. Personally I've never seen anything like it and that's part of what draws me to it. I love it.


I also must tell how I came to see it. Sandra Kramer is a childhood friend of my mom's. They, plus some other classmates have reconnected after all these years and get together regularly for fun, food and inspiration.

I hope I stay connected to all the special friends I have now, and cross paths with others from the past. Trends come and go, but good friends are one-of-a-kind treasures.

That is a stunning necklace-- it'd look good with the emperor's new clothes, too! :-)

Many, many thanks! I love it when we women support each other! Very powerful.
