Inchie

Hello Everyone.

Just popping in to post my inchie for this week. At Every Inchie Monday the theme for this week is Jet.


I have chosen a piece of Jet jewellry which is made from stones found on a Whitby beach and made into wonderful things. There is lots on show in Whitby and even an old workshop museum showing just how it used to be worked. Jet was made fashionable by Queen Victoria when her dear husband, Albert died. She wore it all the time.

Hope you have a good day and nice to have you drop in to Jumbled Crafts-thank you

Love Chrissie x

Such an elegant inchie! And an interesting bit of story about Queen Vic.

Great minds think alike. Very pretty. There was a great feature on Countryfile the other week- and do you know in all of my many visits to Whitby I have never noticed the jet! Next time I will have my eyes open :)

I will sound ignorant but I didn't know what jet was so had to look it up. So not only was it a pretty post but educational for me too. :)
