I have a fascination with glass jewelry.
Does that sound like a bad idea? GlaSs jEweLRy?
Good idea, bad idea. It’s all the same.
The Photographer — more of a risk-taker than I am — didn’t think twice about indulging me and gave me this beautiful necklace for my birthday. It looks like a bouquet of soap bubbles.
I thought a simple backdrop would be most effective for this charming, transparent piece: all black.
Here, I am wearing an old double-knit top and a pair of skinny black corduroys (but not “skinnies”) which I have decided are my most flattering pants.
Enough of my yapping! Come closer and see the bubbles.
These bubbles are ingeniously strung in a manner that holds them in this riotous arrangement. It looks haphazard, but is utterly composed. The variety in size and alignment reminds me of the “App Face” on an Apple Watch: the black background with all the app icons appearing like a pride of polka dots. That particular face epitomizes the genius of Apple graphic and industrial design.
I am giving you a second look so that you can see the solo bubble at the end of this strand. I think it is supposed to hang down the back of my neck, but it keeps creeping around. I think it wants to be with the pride.
