An ode to the animal kingdom:
I love animals, truly I do
But I don’t want to feed them or walk them (would you?)
and seeing as taxidermy’s not my thing
really, what better than a nice big ring?
Ok poetry’s not my thing either but what else was I to do but pen a passionate poem on the subject that has occupied my mind night and day? I want it, I need it, I SIMPLY MUST HAVE a shiny little (or big) jewelled animal to call my own!
Until my poetry starts raking in the big bucks, the above beauties are, sadly, aspirational. However, a tout about the world wide web turns up some lovely, more achievable options for a budget conscious fashionista, including a darling antelope on etsy . Fuelled by desire for my own bargain beastie, I hit the local shopping centre and headed to a
tacky budget jewellery chain store in the hope of turning up a treasure. And what do you know, I struck gold – nestled in the charm cabinet amongst blingy initials and 21st keys was my lovely lady bug, and in that moment I knew it was love (it’s much easier to fall in love when the price is right). See my new pet pictured below … soon to be added to my bracelet alongside a triple-jointed crocodile and a flying unicorn.
