Nora sent me the most beautiful earrings a while back, and I recently lost them at the City pool where I swim. I did my best to adopt a positive attitude about it—maybe someone who needs them more found them and is now happily wearing them—but of course deep down I really missed them.
So Nora sends me a new pair AND a pair in quartz, which are now tied for my favorite earrings, AND three stones to wear as necklaces (I do have a silver chain)!! Thank you so much, Nora. I love them all! The stones are so beautiful!! I’m googling chalcedony now, it’s very glow-y, isn’t it? Oh! It’s said to have healing properties. Interesting. Maybe I’ll try wearing all the stones on a chain together. Thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you. You are very generous.
