Some years ago my mom gave me a jade bracelet. Or rather, she re-gifted me the jade bracelet. Apparently it was from my childhood. When I was tiny. So of course I am now way too big to wear it.
I stored it away these last few years, thinking one day I will get round to “doing something” about it. But a walk with cancer has taught me that one should store less, enjoy and use more!
The childhood jade bracelet is made with symbolic Jade round pieces, encased within and link-chained with 24K gold. (24K gold is very yellow, expensive, and very popular in Malaysia – which is where I originally hailed from). Gold is not a metal I often work with. Which added to my procrastination period.
However I have finally “done something” to the childhood jade bracelet. It is now both a necklace or a wrap around bracelet. And I love it.
