Summer Vacation Card Night
I must admit upfront that I’m not a regular card player. Other than Go-Fish or War, the rules need to be explained. There’s always a practice hand to start and beginner mistakes that give the more seasoned players a chance to tease.
Each summer growing up we went camping with friends by a lake. These are my first memories of “adult” card games. After dinner, after the sun set, we played hearts. Kids and adults inside the screened-in tent, packed in around the table. I remember lots of laughter, laughter that continued into the night as we kids went to bed.
Cards seem to make a habit of appearing during summer vacation. Friends and family gathered around the table. Laughs shared, stories told. -SP
This Ace of Spades pendant is filled with diamond light. The ace has a sculptural quality with sweeping reflective curves of gold. It’s beautiful.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Ace of Spades
The cards, their colors, their symbols, I remember aces were good, really good. I remember each time I came across a chocolate bit in the oatmeal cookies, how good it was too. The chocolate bits were shaped like the ace of spaces. The ace of spades became my favorite card. Every time I see one I’m back in the kitchen at the farm with a dish of oatmeal cookies and a glass of milk.
Certainly my oatmeal cookies and chocolate bits are no reason to consider one of our Ace pendants. You have your own memories of cards, your own reasons why you’re drawn to aces and you might, just might, have some deeper reasons for why you love the ace of spades.- RHP
Our gold ace is beautifully sculpted, great curves, nice shape. The three center gems are set in their own inset piece. This allows us to do some detail polishing down inside, something you might not notice at first, but it’s the reason the gold is so superbly polished. It just glows.
The rubies, sapphires, diamonds, and SparHawk MintGreen Teal Maine tourmaline are all exquisite gems, beautifully cut, brilliant, exceptional color, and in the stem we’ve set a tiny white diamond. Simple, pure, elegant. If you were here and could see all four pieces side by side you’d be hard pressed to decide which one you liked the best. The design, the colors are just so beautiful.
