Beautiful Baubbles

"Come on Ruth, let's go get us some baubbles," she would say to me. I wasn't quite sure what she was saying, and I was pretty certain from the sound of the accent she was from New York. Turns out Bobbie Sotonoff, whom I had befriended on a memorable trip to the Virgin Islands was from the Chicago area. I soon learned upon our arrival in St. Croix via amphibious plane, that a baubble was a bit of jewelry.

Bobbie is a hoot and every once in awhile I am blessed with an email from her that is so funny I'll be sobbing with laughter before I finish reading it. An inveterate roamer she was traveling probably 20 out of 30 days a month when I met her.

I bring this up because I can't look at a piece of jewelry anymore without thinking of Bobbie and her "baubbles." This morning while preparing another gift guide I was pretty impressed when I came upon this page. We really have a great line up of beautiful bracelets right now, and I want everyone of them to find a happy home. Earrings pictured here can be seen by clicking on the photo. Everyone can always use another beautiful "baubble."/Ruth Mitchell
