Lovely, how much? $165 Choker only? Yes Do you have a strand? No. Can you order another strand? Let me see. Can you wait ... Sure, find me and let me know.
Folks, I couldn't believe my eyes. I was in love for real. But $165??? I could buy a lot for that and make my own, but ....
As I walked around and around I couldn't for the life of me find anything that remotely resembled those Honey Jasper beads. Onward. I got to the back of the store and spied 18mm wood beads - looked like they were just carved from the branch and dripping with honey. First time I passed them - zoomed in. 10 minutes later - picked them up, heavy. 10 minutes after that, third time - twilled them in my hands, too woody. Kept moving.
One hour later - Done. I'd finished shopping for that day - let me inquiry about the Honey Jasper and pay for my goods. Yes, I left the wood beads on the wall.
No more Honey Jasper for now, I'll keep checking back. Oh well (dagnabbit), let me pay for my goods. Honey Jasper/Wood, leave it be. I turned to leave, and yall won't believe me but I heard my name! I turned and, YUP, my eyes went right to the back of the store at the strand of wooden beads hanging on the wall looking like they were dripping in honey. They called to me ... I ran back and grabbed MY beads! Hey, I got a lot of stuff that day. What do you think?

And bet your last dollar, when that strand of Honey Jasper comes in, its mine. Ain't life grand ...
