Words

WW for Words in the Blogging from A to Z challenge.

I spend this A to Z exploring online jewellery collections. There are lots of exclusive bling, historical and contemporary pieces, and some drawings too, from across the world. A feast for the eye.

But I also came across some jewellery words, and that’s what I want to share with you today.

Here is a poem inspired by a necklace in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (I praised their collection in yesterday’s post).

It’s written by Colette Bryce and is called The Wearer. Colette Bryce was one of five poets who were invited to explore the British Galleries 1500-1900 and pick one object to write a poem about.

I love this idea, and this poem. I hope you enjoy it too.

I wish you all a good weekend. Have some rest, read poetry, or write some. Enjoy the words that mean something to you.

  1. Thank you G for discovering and uncovering this . It really is a quite beautiful poem .. What a splendid prompt it turned out to be . Love the Arts and Crafts Movement .

  2. Lovely poem — and really, your reveal is brilliant! I’ve enjoyed it! I thought the poem was written by “the” Colette — so for a fleeting moment it did not make sense!

    • Thank you so much for your enthousiastic comment, glad you like it! And I have to confess my ignorance here, google whispers in my ear: Colette Inez, is that the one you were first thinking of?

If you have any thoughts, please share them!
