Conquering fear of code!!!

Oh man.

I'm sure I'm not alone out there, but I am a creative type who never quite grasped the finer points of HTML. Thanks to things like myspace, i'm warming up, and tonight with a little help, I'm figuring out how to trick out this fine space of bloggery. :)

Met up with a customer in the city tonight, she purchased earrings for a wedding she's heading out to in CA tomorrow. I suppose I should advertise that, a 'free shipping' option for my NYC and North Jersey peeps, in that I will hand-deliver! It was really rewarding seeing the earrings on her. She looked gorgeous in them!

Persephone's Seeds

Hades ruled the Underworld. Hades loved Persephone. Hades kidnapped her and took her off to the great Down Below. Lucky for that girl, her parents Demeter and Zeus had some connections and sprung her from her captor, but not before Persephone had herself a little Underworldly nosh... pomegranate seeds.

Because she ate food of the Underworld, she had to return down there and hang out with Hades for four months of the year, and Demeter made those months Winter.

Moral of the story? Always pack a granola bar.

These little red glass beads are wrapped in sterling silver wire. They glow out of their little cages seemingly from within, and hang from dainty sterling earhooks. I hope they serve as a reminder that to everything, there is a season.

Triple Freshwater Pearl Dangles

Three top-drilled freshwater pearls dangle from silverplate chain and sterling silver earwires. Perfect for an evening with your hair up!

Love your earrings, and the story...I think I've heard of it before but didn't remember the part of her eating the seeds. I laughed at packing a granola bar, we always have them in our house(that must be why, in case some hunky hell god comes to take me away, LOL). Love your blog, I've added a link to your blog on mine, you can find yourself under the Brilliant Bloggers list!
