One of our stops was the world's largest copper mine in Utah. For years afterwards, I planned to wear only copper jewelry.
About ten years later, when I read The Fellowship of the Ring, I fell in love with the line,
"All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost."
I've never been a fan of the glittery; I treasure much that seems dull on the surface. I tend to take a meandering path, the scenic route; I believe in finding my own way.
Yesterday at the Delaplane Strawberry Festival I spotted this wiggly copper ring. I own a copper bracelet that I sometimes wear when the arthritis in my fingers flares. Why not a copper ring?
Then I spotted these squiggle earrings. I love their irregular meander. Copper that wanders. To me, it's golden!
