Common ravens are known to steal and cache shiny objects. One theory is that they hoard shiny objects to impress other ravens. Well, duh.
Like a raven, pretty sparkly things to wear and share catch my eye. Making earrings and pendants exercises my creativity. When one of my first jewelry customers asked me which of two pairs of earrings to choose, I told her to go big or go home. So you know I like it dangly, chunky and bold. Maybe you do too.
