Book club necklaces

Barb's fair trade necklace reminds me of the sea.

So I was sitting in a cafe yesterday with my book club, discussing "The Snow Child" by Eowyn Ivey, and I couldn't stop looking at the three necklaces at my end of the table. I wanted to put them on the blog but didn't have my camera, so Judi snapped them with her phone and e-mailed them to me.

Sharon is an artist; I believe she made her necklace.

The fabulousness of Judi's necklaces is lost in this image. The long one has pink crocheted netting around the lighter balls, and the other balls are comic strip images. Judi made the shorter sparkly necklace.

I always say, "A woman with an interesting necklace is an interesting woman." (And a man with an interesting necklace is even better.) You can see that our book club definitely isn't a bunch of bookish prudes!

Have a colorful day

NO comments? Wow, these necklaces are beautiful! My book club meets in private homes & we never dress up, but I do like your idea of meeting in a cafe. We have around 13 people usually, tho, so might be a problem - especially in the evenings in Poulsbo!

I don't know why they didn't comment on their own necklaces, but I'm glad you did! We usually meet in each others homes -- the cafe was just something different.
