|Anyone owns a similar necklace?|
This necklace was unique -- made up of red and white pieces. The red pieces (which my dad said were rubies -- but of course they were not -- probably plastic) were interspersed with the white ones which looked like skittles.
It was dismantled and re-threaded many times to test out different designs -- three rubies, one white skittle... or two white skittles, one ruby... In the later stage of my childhood, I was left with one ruby which I carefully put in a small velvet pouch, with some skeins which belonged to my mum's green skirt. She said to save the skeins in case she needed them to mend her skirt.
I wish I have kept that pouch.
