Excellent Earthy Eggplant Bracelet

Most of you know I homeschool our children. And an addition number of you know we are in our second year of Classical Conversations, or CC, as the insiders dub it. This year we extended our day beyond the Tuesday morning Foundations memory work to an afternoon grammar class, Essentials. I love this class and am learning some simple grammar tools which were not even addressed in my English major college days. Ian told me today that this was his favorite time of the day, parsing and diagramming sentences, learning "dress ups" to enhance our sentences, and basic writing techniques. One of the "tools" which the children were handed today was alliteration as a powerful literary device, especially as seen in poetry.

Yep, I couldn't help myself. Mrs. Gazaway, in honor of your delightful teaching style, I bring you the Excellent Earthy Eggplant bracelet. Not that any woman wants to imagine herself wearing eggplant (amazing plant--you can so many delicious meals with it), but the humor might engage your funny bone.

EEE measures a full 8 inches, but the diameter is closer to 7 due to the larger stones. It fits my wrist quite nicely. EE is concocted from eggplant-colored magnesite stones, antiqued silver, Swarovski crystals and an earthy carved wooden bead. Bracelet $26, Earrings, $10.
