ABC Wednesday—A is for "amber"


This jewelry is in the Maison de l'Ambre, located
under the arcades of the Palais Royal in Paris
and specializing (something the French do SO well)
in pieces made of fossilized tree resin.
Worth a visit if you're into that sort of thing—
and not even that expensive, considering
that this stuff has been around for millennia

    I can imagine some of those ceaselessly adorning Linda Darnell.
