I’m always surprised by friends: As in, when they’re on time or manage to not talk to me about relationships. Sometimes I’m also impressed with their talents. Elise, for example, has an amazing talent for embroidery and making me feel guilty about things. It’s a real gift. Just recently I discovered another friend with a talent for making cool necklaces. Now, yes, everyone makes necklaces now. BUT, it is rare that I ask people about them. Cassandre Pallas was wearing one of her creations (under the name Ichibanhapa) at dinner and literally everyone at the table asked her where she got it. Turns out she’s been making them for a while. So, I’m here talking about them. Handmade, the real deal, chunky necklaces that looks awesome. I already ordered one in neon yellow. There’s more coming to her Etsy store soon.
