Differences of Opinion

As with all couples, sometimes Derek (Mr. Magpie) and I have differing opinions on things. One of my favourite recent creations is this lovely peridot necklace:

I was quite proud of this piece as it came to me whilst listening to "Stairway To Heaven" and I knew I needed to make a necklace that went with my favourite line "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now. It's just a spring clean for the May Queen". When Derek came home from work, I hurried to show him my work. His response? "Oh that is so COOL, you made Trogdor!" "What? Trog-WHAT?" He then showed me this video:

and tried hard to point out the similarities in this photo:

"Noooooo, I don't THINK so. This necklace is called 'Hedgerow'....."

In a last ditch-effort to convince me this was, indeed, a representation of Trogdor, Derek presented me with this image:

Sometimes boys are so strange.

Shimmer of the day: PERIDOT
Peridot is said to assist with healing emotional wounds. This stone can help you see romantic involvement clearly and with greater understanding. A Visionary stone, it brings understanding of destiny and purpose. It is believed to slow aging, lessen anger, fear, and jealousy, and to facilitate the birthing process.
