The the widest sense of the word, jewelry would be ornamental objects made from many kinds of both organic and inorganic materials, such as hair, feathers, scales, bones, shells, wood, leather, metals, or minerals. Today we think of jewelry primarily as precious or semi-precious gemstones mounted in valuable or attractive metals like gold, silver, platinum, or copper and brass. Most recently, alternative metals such as steel or titanium are gaining favor.
My philosophy about jewelry has always been if you like it, buy it and wear it. It doesn't matter if it's a17-carat diamond or a pair of bright orange plastic dangle earrings. Jewelry IS personal adornment. It's all about YOU! So let Contemporary Concepts adorn you!

I once wrote Roger Zelazny a fan letter, praising the Amber books and asking if they might possibly be made into a movie. This was in about 1979. He sent me a postcard reply, thanking me and saying there was interest in making a movie. I'm still waiting. It would be SO awesome. Especially if Peter Jackson were to direct it....

This was heading for a listing in my Etsy shop. I had taken pictures of it a week or so ago, and just finished editing the pictures on Monday. And guess what...it sold in my store! I have some more beads, but not enough in the true "rainbow" colors to make another bracelet just like this. I think what I'll do is just a "multi-color" bracelet in a similar style. Don't want those beautiful cube crystals to be homeless any longer!
