Shopping at Tiffany & Co. - care to join me?
I have always been a big fan of Tiffany & Co. I love their chunky sterling silver necklace designs dripping with hearts and large toggle clasps. Their creations are so classic and elegant that I get a lot of wear out of them - and this is how I justify the ridiculously expensive prices. Yes, I do realize that I'm paying for a brand but I don't care!
A year and a half ago I treated myself to a gorgeous sterling silver heart necklace and a charm bracelet as a treat for my birthday. I promised myself at the time that I would buy myself a charm to celebrate special moments and momentous achievements - but I'm embarrassed to say I forgot. I delved into running my own business and designing my own jewelry line, and consequently my gorgeous new charm braclet lay...charmless and unused. I have focused on making gorgeous creations in my studio but I never get to keep them. They all go out the door to someone else.
It's my boyfriends birthday in a few days so I popped over to Yorkdale mall to buy him a gift. On my way there I picked up this gorgeous new charm from Tiffany. I've been working so hard this year and I spend so much of my time designing things for other people, it's time to give myself a treat to acknowledge my accomplishments. I want something that I don't have to lift a finger to create.
When I was a little girl I had an old teddy bear I carried around with me EVERYWHERE. It was such a comfort for me to drag around. I still have him - he's old, full of holes and his head lolls to the side, but now he reclines in a special corner of my room in peace and quiet. I figured carrying THIS bear around is a bit more dignified.
What do you think of my newest charm?
