Like women all over this world and other sunkissed dominions, I love jewelry, so I have come up with an inventory of light reflected from the glorious shine of this Treasure Trove of Gems and Pearls.
We all love the story of a treasure found by chance and imagination.
In my culture, hidden treasures flicker on a magic night in the midst of summer. We call this night, The night of Sânziene. They are gracious fairies with magic powers. Also Sânziană is a flower called Lady’s Bedstraw.
Legend has it that on this night one can listen to animals talking with human voice and catch glimpses (if lucky) of the mysterious sheen of the unknown, unfathomable trove of treasures waiting impatiently to be found.
The treasure I am about to present here is not found but forged with toil, sweat, craft and the imagination of a treasure seeker. Swarovski crystals and amazing water-cherished pearls sparkle along with semi-precious stones like amethyst, citrine, opal, Larimar, mother-of-pearl and whatnot…
Romanian mythology is enchanting.
