Gold pendants on cotton thread


I don’t wear jewellery round the clock. I used to wear my rings all the time and felt terribly bare when I took them off but now I cannot imagine doing that – at all! Nowadays I wear them only when I am out and about. One thing I do wear all the time though is a whisper-light cotton thread with a tiny gold heart on it.

It came from Marisa-Lee designs on Etsy a few years ago and I have worn it ever since. It was put on by someone who means the world to me and I have never taken it off. It will wear through someday and the heart will drift to its new destiny. But until then, against my skin it will stay.

I usually wear it under my clothing but sometimes it shows and if it does, people always comment on it. I have sent several of them to Marisa Lee because her service and product is excellent. I ordered mine on a Sunday and by Tuesday it was here – from the US to Sweden in less than two working days! It remains a record! Beautifully packaged and beautiful quality. You can choose gold or silver for the pendants, and name the colour you want for your thread.

I looked at her shop when I was writing this article and I noticed a gorgeous elephant – isn’t it beautiful!

  1. Thank you Janet for writing about Marisa Lee Designs. They are affordable which I like and I can see that if I chose carefully there might be something for my son to wear, he likes the simple string look.
