My Great-Grandmother was alive until I was well into my adult life. She was a spunky woman who taught me a lot. One of the few things that I inherited from her was this simple (I love the detail work) Ivory bracelet. It is well over 50 years old now. I know at one time, it was beautiful. Someday, I would like to have a pendant made from the pieces. I know they don't make jewelry out of ivory anymore, but this was made long before that practice was stopped. I think it is beautiful in it's own way.
I especially like the piece that looks like a heart. The detail is amazing to me. Each of those little round links are smaller than a child's tiny pinky fingernail. It is a very petite and detailed bracelet.
If a picture paints a thousand words
This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.
