Men In Jewelry
For years, I have envied women for a number of things. This one is silly, but in my corporate life, men in jewelry wasn’t very socially acceptable.
Wearing Pearls – Men In Jewelry
First of all, let me acknowledge that I have some outdated ideas about gender norms. Aging seems to tend toward crystallizing things in a person. Bones and tendons and muscles seem to get more set. As do ideas. I continue to try and stay flexible in my thinking, but I still have some antiquated ideas.
This is one of them.
For years, I’ve always thought it unfair that women could wear a simple strand of pearls. Pearls are so elegant and beautiful, I always wished I could wear them.
I tried to compensate by wearing a pearl tie pin when guys wore ties and tie pins. But I still yearned to feel the heft of those soft, smooth gems on my neck.
Tim Miller is an MSNBC pundit and I love that he wears pearls.
He has just allowed me to uncrystallize some of my outdated ideas. I need to look for a nice, short strand of these beauties.
I added about 3 more rows of “raindrops” to the current April Showers Shawl.
Two things I love about this shawl.
- It’s going in the correct direction…as I’ve noted I much prefer to get the hardest part over first and this one is already starting to feel faster each row.
- The lacy, drape of this garment is getting nicer and nicer…holy shit I’m gonna have difficulty selling this garment when it’s finished.
