I love watching the diamonds on the lakes and rivers when I'm kayaking. I've always had such a soft spot for vintage crystal jewelry and it just reminds me of that.
The 50s and the 60s have a terrific glimmer appeal. Even last night while watching the clips from the older White House Correspondents' Association dinner events - up comes Laura Bush wearing a fabulous crystal necklace! Did you catch that?
There's lots of great history connected with these amazing beads too. Be sure to check out the earlier piece I did - Aurora Borealis
