Jewelry is the perfect accessory. Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are easy to wear and they require
little care beyond gentle handling and occasional cleaning. They mix and match with a variety of
apparel, and jewelry can be a terrific artistic expression.
On the other hand, who has the time or inclination in the morning for more preparation? I know
I don't, and I suspect I'm not alone. Yet, when I take the time, wearing a nice piece of jewelry
takes the day from humdrum to something more extraordinary. For this reason, the following tiles
show selections that can make the next work outfit special.
The selections are grouped as draft horses, palominos, and donkeys. Draft horses get the job done,
day in and day out with strength and reliability, and these necklaces do the heavy lifting with
professional suits and plain shells. Palominos are also good working horses (quarter horses, etc), but
they do it with a certain showiness, and these necklaces are too large, too colorful, or too
whimsical to play nicely with formal attire but they are great expressions of fun and style around
the workplace. Last, there's the donkeys: donkeys are hardworking but they do it their own way.
These necklaces are bold expressions of personality!
