all that does not glitter


this is a real "light" post

i bought this "sundance" neck chain/pendant at a 5th Ave Jewellery party a couple of years ago.  I spent $100 on it.  The chain has broken off the saudered ends once and a jewel stone that was GLUED on (excuse me?)
has come off because it dropped on the floor accidentally last night and it is just a cheap flat fake blue little glass mirrored stone, i can glue it back on but it is not worth it. 

I was fooled by "all that glitters" and it doesn't feel right when I wear it (which has only been twice)

this bracelet below, I bought in Calgary at 'In Gear' in January. I spent $20.00 on it. It is a solid metal with chunks of silver daisies all around it and thread by a strong silk brown thread with adjusting pull strings that hold well.  I have worn it several times. I received value with this bracelet.

I hope you have a solid day and know that you have value and do not let the glitter blind you!

It is so frustrating spending good money on something that should have been of better quality! Booooo 5th Ave Jewellery!!!! It appears their 'bling' is a bit of a bust!!

But look at your sweet little bracelet! Now that was a deal! Very cute.

Well, live and learn right? That's all we can do.

Perhaps you can make the pendant into a craft or something. Hmmm....

Wishing you a beautiful week Donna!
