A Ring like Mary's

I don't wear much jewelry--a couple silver rings on my fingers that I bought from a street vendor for under $10 each. Occasionally I wear earrings or a necklace, often a toe ring. This is something I'd like to change about myself. When I see others with the perfect necklace or bracelet I renew this vow to accessorize (beyond the level of shoes) and still I never seem to do it. On the Day-Lab site I discovered a designer who can't go wrong--Wilk Designs.
















I fell in love with this necklace. Then I saw the ring and immediately got all choked up. It reminded me of Mary, the tutor at my school who died last fall. I used to sit in the break room and try on her wedding ring, admiring myself, saying "Wow! I look great in a wedding ring!" Her ring was unusual, and something about this design reminds me of it. Too bad it only comes in a size 7.5 .... I have skinny fingers.

Thanks. That was nice of you.... I didn't get to read much of yours but is that one sidebar on your blog your husband's art--stuff he's created? It was very cool.

The thirteen "rings" of that lovely neckless remind me of a cute little story in the Bible:

Genesis 37

1And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

2These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.

3Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

4And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

5And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

6And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:

7For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

8And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

9And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

So,Marv are you suggesting that if I were to wear that necklace that people might bown down to me... or just the "sun, moon, and stars"... I am not sure I am "worthy".... and I certainly don't want others to get the wrong idea... of course I don't think Joseph was aiming to get sold into slavery either!
