A Tale of Two Jades

This is a most favorite necklace from my sweetheart. It's called greenstone, or New Zealand jade. Greenstone carving is of Maori tradition, the Maori being the native people of New Zealand. The different carved shapes symbolize various virtues. The shape of this particular piece represents determination. Even the shade of green of this piece of jade has a name - kohuwai - called after the greenish moss growth in a slow running stream. It's very special to me.

Even more special is our young friend Jade Lee. He is a most talented film maker / photograher / God-lover. It would mean a lot to me if you would take a visit to his new blog, and even leave a comment. It's a good thing to encourage one another. So when Jade is a well-known film maker one day, we'll be able to say "we knew him when...." and perhaps claim a role in one of his films *ahem*

Every girl knows how terribly important it is to pick a man with good taste in jewelry. Once again, I thank you, sincerely, for raising my man to have taste in all things that matter, and sensitivity to know when it matters.
I enjoy how everything you love, desire and prefer holds an artistic (even if practical) purpose.
