The Cameo Re-Imagined

I was in an antique mall in La Jolla, California when I spotted the earrings. After touring the warehouse for the better part of an hour, I was tired and ready to leave. But then a glint of color caught my eye.

There, on the rack was a collection of Extasia earrings in every color. Beautiful, classic, colorful and absolutely stunning on, I was struck with indecision. Which ones to buy?

I was with my parents. My dad frowns on earrings (I can still remember his shock and dismay when I came home with pierced ears at age twelve); he made a face, and for a moment I wavered.

Then my mom stepped in. She thought they were beautiful and she offered to buy me a pair. Guilt washed over me as I realized I couldn't depart with just one – I had to have the purple ones for evening, and the gold for day. I thought, "here are these incredible artisan earrings – I'll never see anything like them ever again! I better buy two pairs."

Little did I know, Extasia can be found online. Well… I'm glad. Because now I know where to go if I want more!
