Salad Days SOLD

I discovered Shakespeare in high school and fell in love with literature and words, an affair that has continued to reign in my life. Reading Anthony and Cleopatra, I discovered the phrase, "salad days" and thought it was simply wonderful. We use that phrase to refer to the sort of carefree innocence of our youth.

CLEOPATRA: My salad days,
When I was green in judgment: cold in blood,
To say as I said then! But, come, away;
Get me ink and paper:
He shall have every day a several greeting,
Or I'll unpeople Egypt

Do you see the salad? Juicy greens, bright oranges, and blue...hmmm, not sure what is blue, perhaps the sky beyond the garden. Yeah, that's it.

Bracelet $26 Green coin pearls, orange and blue mother of pearl, swarovski crystals, blue jade, and silver floral links. Earrings $12 Swarovski crystals

Necklace $23 Silver chain, coin pearl, swarovski and czech glass. Necklace SOLD
