The Twelve Days of Christmas: The earrings series, day 9



A lovely pair today. They were a bit difficult to photograph so I ended up sticking them in a lime … Anyway, they’re glinting ice blue crystals (actually described as Sahara blue by the designer), framed in irregular circles of silver. Last year I discovered a new favourite jewellery store in the Westfield shopping mall in San FranciscoUno de 50. It turns out there’s a store in London too, and Paris and no doubt in many other global cities as well. Anyway, I treated myself to a chunky ‘statement necklace’ in the company’s ‘Fire & Ice’ series and these are the stud earrings that go with it. The wonderfully friendly (and hence, incredibly effectively salesman) young man working in the shop told me and the baby globetrotter that the designs were inspired by Iceland. Having been on a couple of trips there over the last few years and been enchanted by it, this was an added attraction. It felt as if I was meant to have this jewellery! 🙂

  1. Hi Liz,

    Excellent blog you have there!/

    I’m Jo – quirky artist, writer, mental health advocate, traveller, wild west and ghost nut intrigued by science, and a renaissance soul with a potty sense of humour.

    Five years ago I began a miraculous journey to full recovery from thirty years of depression and anxiety. The catalyst was a medication crisis. A brilliant mental health team prescribed the right treatment, including a medication known as California Rocket Fuel (love it!), as a result of which I’m better than I’ve ever been! I’m now rebuilding my eclectic, sometimes adventurous creativity and life with the help of my fabulous soulmate Husband, and recording it on my blog, Creating My Odyssey.

    I’m sharing my mental health experiences and articles to give other sufferers of depression hope, because depression is a mental disorder that can be easily treated, provided the right help can be found, which isn’t easy.

    I’m also aspiring to be a bit of a role model for my age group – ageism is one of my pet hates – and living a life less ordinary and encouraging those in a similar situation to do this as well.

    Creating My Odyssey is a great vehicle for my creativity, which has been hidden under a bushel throughout my depression – an epic novel I’ve been working on forever (Alias Jeannie Delaney is the life story of a devastating cowgirl who’s the fastest gun in the west and also bisexual) – anecdotal and mental health articles, many of which have been published, and art. I’ve had exhibitions and sold work over the years, but throughout depression my art fell by the wayside, which I regret. Now I’m returning to it with fresh vigour.

    I’m swapping posts and links with creatives, people with similar interests and those with mental health issues or connected to mental health, and collaborating in other ways.

    Please let me know if you’re interested in any of this.

    Thank you for reading this preamble!

    Jo, Hampshire UK
