Questioning the Flutter of Wings at Christmas

Updated: Dec 15, 2020

I am reminded at this time of year of the fable of The Little Prince, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, when the fox tells him “it is only with the heart that one can see rightly: what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

I have been questioning how I can possibly send Holiday Greetings when 2020 has brought such turmoil! I suppose it is my small way of posting an embrace to everyone that reads this blog, like a huge seasonal hug that travels through the miles. I think we all need it.

And because it IS the Christmas Season, whatever your religious beliefs, it is a season that creates a kind of magic. Like the Little Prince discovering that kindness and caring are vital to existence. It is as if the atmosphere gets charged with hope and expectation. The candles get lit, the imagination soars, and suddenly the urge to give, seizes the moment.

But what on earth would lead one to buy an extravagant necklace at this time, 2020, the year none of us will forget? And when would it be worn or where, for heaven’s sake?

Well, all I can say to that is that life will (amazingly) go on. Even in zoom calls, a wonderful necklace is in a prime position to lift the face and add charm and delight. And when all this is over, (and it will be over) that flattering, wonderful necklace can go out into the world and work its magic, not only for the wearer, but with all those who observe it being worn.

So if you should be looking for an unforgettable present for a beloved person this year, or better yet, something to raise your own spirits? Look no further. That very special person will be utterly entranced by one of these necklaces, or even the earrings on this website.

Worried about missing the boat for posting? Relax: I use DHL, which means it will get to you in a few days, safe and sound.

But whichever way you are able to spend this holiday season, like the Little Prince, celebrate the important things with your heart, and look for that joy in unexpected places.

And a peaceful, healthy, joyous Christmas to you all.
