THURSDAY CHALLENGE - Jewelry

Thursday Challenge participants here

Without knowing the theme of this week, I decided last week to put some order in my fashion jewelry.

With almost 10 times holidays in Egypt over the last 9 years I had bought each time fashion jewelry in semi precious stones because they were so beautiful and cheap that I couldn't resist.

The result is this :

and three necklaces in detail

Hematite and turquoise

A mixture of stones

I have to admit that I bought them because of their beauty without knowing the name of the stones. But once at home I asked a friend and specialist who found out that the stones are : Agathe, amethyst, turquoise, malachite, Lapis lazuli, quartz of different colors, citrine, coral, fluorite, hematite, tiger eye and jade.

Don't tell me I could open a shop !

PINK (Candy, Birds, Flowers, Cheeks, Toys,...)

As I don't like pink especially I don't have a lot of pink things to show. There is no baby here either, candies I don't like and the toys from my cats are red, green and yellow mice but no pink one.

This is really odd. I took this picture of an African sculpture in the African museum of Brussels.


Photobucket
When I saw this picture I though this guy has the same boots as I !

Photobucket
look ! Then I realized that they really were my boots, reflecting in the vitrine ! I cropped them off

Photobucket
and now the statue has it's normal look ! Sometimes there are strange coincidences !
