From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    Wow. Makes you wonder what the real story behind it is; who wore it, how did it get lost. I love old jewelry.
    About once a week - Condition with Curls Milkshake. Comb in Kinky Curly Leave In Conditioner & Kinky Curly Curling Custard after squeezing most of the water out of my hair. Use table top dryer for 10 minutes. Use diffuser for 10 minutes.
    Daily - Lightly wet hair. Comb in a little Kinky Curly Curling Custard if needed. Use table top dryer for a few minutes or let air dry.
    Shampoo - Only before straightening.

    I love old jewelry, too. I always wonder about the woman who wore it. I hope they find the mate to this earring.

    Wouldn't that be something? To find the mate. Would be very interesting to see.

    I'd want them!:happy10:

    I wonder if they are clip on or did they do piercings back then. I would bet they pierced their ears.

    Beautiful! How cool. It looks to have a wire on the back for pierced ears. I'd love to know about the woman (women?) who wore it as well.

    Ah, pearls, my birth "stone", & emeralds, most of my family's birthstone. That is a very pretty earring. :love5:

    Such craftmanship at that time.

    I also love tea cups. I like to imagine the people who enjoyed tea together.

    Jackie Kennedy used to wear a 2000 year old Egyptian bracelet that JFK gave her. One of those shopping channels sells a cheap-o copy of it for a hundred bucks. I couldn't find a picture online of the original, but here's the copy...which doesn't do the original justice:

    That is so cool. It's gorgeous!
    wow. I'm in awe.

    I wish I had a time machine so I could just go hang around in any time period. I'd have to have the power of invisibility too, though so I don't end up getting all involved in some sort of drama.:confused1:

    The replica wouldn't be the same.

    I just think it is so awesome that women, even back then, adorned themselves with this jewelry. Maybe, we copy them today???? There would be such history in those earrings. It wouldn't be the same to duplicate them. There wouldn't be the history. I would love to at least try them on.
