Dee Sharp's Tea Jewelry
My tea jewelry wardrobe got a wonderful addition last week in the form of a new teapot and teacup ring from Dee Sharp of North Carolina. (And thank you, Denise, the fellow tea-lover in cyberspace who suggested I visit her booth at the World Tea Expo!) Dee has loads of lovely jewelry designs including lots of tea-themed ones, and my eye went straight to this ring and within about 60 seconds it was on my finger. I have teapot or teacup earrings, bracelets, a necklace, Pandora beads ... but I'd never had a ring! Saw one in a catalog perhaps a decade ago, failed to order it, always regretted it ... you shoppers know how it is, the one that got away. Only when I got home and took off the ring did I noticed that her "signature" is stamped inside the ring. What a nice touch! You can also check out her website (deejewelry.com) and see designs such as her Shelley teacup and saucer jewelry.
