Being a designer of handmade beaded earrings, necklaces, bracelets and trinkets I always find myself drawn to the stories behind the beads. I love finding out about the heritage of the beads and gemstones.
I’m currently reading ”Buried Treasure, Travels Through the Jewel Box” by Victoria Finlay (ISBN 0 340 83013 1) and feel like I’ve found another curious spirit with the author.
I love how Victoria Finlay goes through the history of the land and the people of the gem stones amber, jet, pearl, opal, peridot, emerald, sapphire, ruby and diamond with a sense of wonder, exploration, curiosity and a love for the human story.
So if you love jewelry, stories, gem stones and a good read get hold of “Buried Treasure” and revel in it.
