This blog post is very long overdue! It intends to act as a thanks and also a celebration of friendship. Helen was a customer when I worked at a jewellers, who unfortunately lost a bracelet :(
Anyhow in the small world that we live in it turned out Helen was training to become a vicar and had a summer placement in the church that Nic and I attend. She has been studying in Switzerland for the last 4 months (she has been home for about a week now... see how late this post is!)
She came home over Christmas and took me and Nic to Wagamamas to celebrate my birthday. It was the first time I had been and I have now become a bit obsessed (The first reason she is bad)
While we were there she gave me the second bead I have been given as a gift by someone who isn’t Nic (if that makes sense to you then some sort of reward is coming your way) and that is why she is very bad! I promised that day that I would post a blog about the event and better late than never, right?!
The bead I was given was Stay Positive from the Spirituality collection. I absolutely ADORE it! I thought it would be quite flimsy when I first saw it because silver is naturally quite soft and it looked quite thin; however it is strong enough to survive me wearing it. The round shape is one really easy to work with and I really like the look of it at the big end of my bracelet.
|No matter which way you turn this bead, you will always have a plus sign smiling up at you. A reminder to stay positive and focus on the good things in life.|
Here is a quick picture of the bracelet I made up with the bead on, unfortunately my photography leaves a bit to be desired and it is quite hard to see.
Thank you Helen!xx
