I just got a phone call from my friend Cass. She’s a jewellery designer. (Yes all my friends have jobs like this.)
“Dev, I’ve found a pearl to match. It’s $150 which is really cheap. The other ones were all close to $400.”
“Just match the pearl so the earrings are the same. Money is no object.”
“Money is no object.” Yes, I actually said that. Don’t judge me!
All right DO judge me.
Kinda odd don’t you think? A freelancer artist single mum paying $150 for a pearl to be made into an earring to replace the one I lost? And that’s not even mounted and made! We’re talking $250 all up. That’s four tanks of petrol, five take away dinners for my family. A great donation to a worthy cause. But here I am spending in one earring! I’m ashamed. Don’t look at me, I’m hideous.
