- One pair I bought in Bermuda at a glass shop after watching the artisans work for several hours. Such painstaking work. That pair I remember. They are aqua, not blue.
- Another pair was a gift from my daughter Kathe. As I recall she bought the beads at a bead store and made them into earrings. These are not those either, I'm pretty sure.
- And I don't remember where the third pair (this pair, I guess) came from. Perhaps from a student? Or did I buy them because of the swirling of blues that I can't resist?
However they came to me, I love the blues. And the notion that someone heated the glass and placed those tiny dots of molten glass on each spot. Such delicate craftsmanship.
I wore this pair today with my newly finished infinity scarf, in celebration of making it through my first month: Today makes 32 different pairs of earrings worn, 333 to go. And in honor of my father-in-law's 90th birthday. To infinity and beyond!
I read that our symbol for infinity, ∞ , was suggested in 1655, and based on an Etruscan symbol that meant 1000, a number considered too big to count. Like 365 pairs of earrings. I still haven't counted all of mine. I get too distracted...
