Orange Peel, Seeds, Beads, Pits and Beans.... Necklaces from Mexico.
The orange peel threw me a wow isn't this cool. Artistic, clever, and who would have thought it.
I bought a rosary necklace in red beans.
It was my first purchase of the trip.
Dyed apricot pits and seeds of something...Apple? I can't imagine how one drills a hole in an apple seed.
The owner of the interesting shop, full of old gems, silver and precious stone jewelry and other curious artifacts in located in Tulum's center. Had on two colorful apricot pit necklaces with a brightly colored top. She wore a scarf wrapped around her dark black hair and had a floor length skirt in purple. I teasingly asked her, "Can you dress me up in color?"
She laughed, "Sure, but are you going to like it?"
"Like it yes, wear it that is another thing." I said.
That is when I decided to buy a red bean necklace... a little color to remind me of Mexico.
Dried orange peel, cut into tiny circles worn on a necklace with black seed beads and white beans.
The orange peel is more rose color than orange.
I loved it.
A pair of hand made paper mache angel mask.
An acorn necklace.
Creative style n'est pas?
As I type this blog post today, sitting outside by the sea, I realized that the business card of the shop that I am writing about is back a few steps were we are staying... the sun, the waves, the blue, the time that floats gently by is not helping me to get up and go get it.
As they say in Mexico, "Tomorrow." I will add it.
White bean necklace.
Would you like one? If so tell me if you are a jewelry person or not. Do you prefer gold to silver, diamonds to apricot and bean necklaces? Do you make you own? Wear only heirloom pieces? Or are you like my mother and never wear jewelry, other than rings?
Leave your comment in the comment section today and tomorrow, and I will randomly pick three of you, and send a necklace to you.
If you want one, let me know, they cost about $10 a piece (includes postage) and I'll send you one too.
