i just want to lick it.

i scored majorly tonight.
oh come on...i mean at the bead shop. there is this really eclectic place downtown that carries a lot of stones and actual artifacts from upwards of 2000 years ago. they have village tokens from greece that were never supposed to leave the village, super rare indian trade glass ect. tonight something really hit me (and my wallet) hardcore. but i just had to. there in the 'don't look over this way, i am waaay too expensive wall' was this beautiful strand of roman glass. i grabbed it thinking never have i touched glass this old, but i may never again. then came the light. it's like i was taken over by the romans. they whispered in my ear, get it. get it, it's almost your birthday and you deserve the world this year. yes, i said. i know, but i also need to eat. get it, they say. so i did. i walked to the counter sweating and purchased this glass. when i take it off the strand tonight and begin to make earrings and necklaces with it, i can tell already i will have a hard time when someone buys one. these are it. they will never have these again, and neither will i. ok, that's lie. i will totally make two pairs for myself and a necklace. it's delicious. it's aqua, lemon yellow, sea green and cobalt. it looks like sea glass in a way, but you can see the fossilization starting. i will be posting some tomorrow. tear.

* i held back, but what i really wanted to do was question her on how the hell did she get her hands on this and who did she rob to get it??

I love this Rachel, and I can't wait to see it. I love that you are SO passionate about it. I love to hear the story about how you created it and found it. VERY awesome. To clarify, I'm not a huge fan of the glass itself, just the story of it and how you told it. great post. The only thing that would make it better is a pic!

YUMMY!!! This stuff could be SUPER DUPER rationed if you just added a piece to a cluster of charms at the clasp of a necklace or bracelet...

*gasp* Oh my goodness. That is gorgeous. I must confess, in jewelry shops like that I find myself spending the first twenty minutes just oogling and touching everything.
