The customer of the day is a member of my Golden Girls Gang: Amanda.

Amanda got one of my big, sterling-silver letter rings: an “A” for “Amanda.”

All the letters are available on my website. If you have trouble finding yours, holla at me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com for help.

I like that Amanda keeps me up-to-date on the ring’s activities. It goes for sushi …

Amanda told me:

“Whenever I wear [the ring] people always notice it.  How can they not? I’ve had a lot of fun with it … I like to take it places and take pictures of it enjoying itself.  It makes me smile and I get excited to think, ‘Oh, where can the A ring go now?’  I like to wear it on dates or out with my friends.  I like to wear it when I think my jewelry should be a little fun.”

“I kinda think of it as its own person,” she added. “It’s soo big.  Well, for me it is.”

That’s a good point to bring up. Some petite wimmins think they can only wear delicate jewelry, but teeny-weeny Amanda boldly wears a big-ass ring. How teeny is Amanda? A little over 5′ tall. That’s actually taller than she thought she was. She believed for a long time that she was 4’11” but, upon re-measuring a few years ago, found an extra inch lurking about. I’m always hearing stories like that: people who were once told they were a certain height later re-measuring and learning they’re shorter or taller. I’m going to try to avoid any measuring devices because I’m happy with the 5’4″ that I believe myself to be.

Anyway, thanks for sharing all the ring pictures, Amanda! I look forward to its next adventure.

        Nah, I’m shy. Besides I think you did or linked to my posts when I got each piece of my Wendy Brandes gorgeousness! (Which are still my fav pieces of fine jewelry to wear, and *always* get compliments!) But you may see my hands having some swear ring adventures this summer! XXX
