Greetings and Salutations!

By La Petite Acadienne

/tap tap

Is this thing on?

Ahem…um, hi.

I am La Petite Acadienne. Some of you long-timers have likely seen me around, commenting on the many brilliant and witty posts by The Manolo and his equally brilliant associates.

And for reasons I don’t fully understand, they’ve given me a set of keys to the place. So here I am, toothbrush in hand with the aim of not completely embarrassing myself.

It helps that I’ll be writing about something I’ve loved since I was a little girl. No, not Cadbury Creme Eggs (although one COULD probably write an entire blog on those).

Jewelry. The sparkly, the glowing, the luminescent — those bits and baubles that elevate an ourfit and elevate our moods.

Jewelry has power. It can completely transform the mood and feel of an outfit (a concept I plan on exploring in future posts.)

Am I an expert on jewelry? Nope. I love it, I love looking at it, and I’d love to buy more of it (or have it bought for me). I will not, however, be putting the fine people at Christie’s out of a job anytime soon. I do plan on learning as I go (you should SEE the list of books I’ve jotted down– my family definitely has no doubts as to what to get me for Christmas, needless to say), and am looking forward to passing along what I learn. We’re all on this sparkly ride together, and I’m sure that you fine people also have great wisdom and knowledge to share.

So…off we go!

    Hello, La Petite Acadienne!

    Would you be willing to share one or two of the books on your Christmas list, for those of us who are Square-One novice jewelry enthusiasts?
