When I was a kid, I wanted to be an archaeologist. I love ancient things and mythology too.
A vendor at the recent Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil show had some very interesting things for sale. An old necklace caught my eye.
The necklace was made of Roman glass, each bead individually formed. I've always loved Roman glass and had never seen beads like those.
So I bought it. The price was far below what I thought it would cost--a real deal. I love the beads and the various colors. This necklace is my favorite purchase from the gem show.
I'm going to re-string it. And yes, I'm going to wear it.
