Whatchamacallit 139: Anklet (Hawaiian)


I bought this anklet on October 24, 2015, at Holuaola Gallery, which is in Holuaola, Hawaii.

According to the receipt, I paid $22.50, taxes of $0.94, making for a grand total of $23.44. I used a Visa card.

This is the only anklet I own – I bought it without trying it on, then I wore it precisely once. While it is very pretty, there are two reasons why I have not worn it again: first, it is a tad too small: it fits, but there is about a 1 cm gap in the rocks once it is around my ankle. Second, perhaps more importantly, my skin was stained by one of the stones – as I recall, the stain was reddish, so the four red stones, presumably.

After that one adventure, it went back into the box, along with the receipt, which is where it stayed for the past five years: emerging only to appear on my blog.

I do not regret this purchase at all – had the stone not stained my skin, I probably would have worn it regularly in the summer.

Again, I’m not a huge jewelry person, so this is a definite aberration – the colors of the rocks spoke to me for whatever reason.

Whenever I see the box, I am instantly taken back to Hawaii and the splendid vacation that I had back on the big island of Kona in 2015.

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
