Comfort over style please. Or, as my Sister would say, Comfort over style? PLEASE!

Since I was a kid, I've had tactile issues. If I admitted to wearing a Giorgio Armani blouse, there would be no proof because the tag would be missing. My sister Carole, on the other hand, might "accidentally" wear the blouse inside out, and not because she was irritated by the tag. (She gave me permission to tell you that.) They made Fruit of the Loom tagless T-shirts and underwear JUST for me. My sox are worn inside out so I can't feel the line across the top of my toes. Shoes have to fit just so, and, ask my sister, I sacrifice style for comfort most of the time. The best outfit is one that I don't have to fuss with, adjust, pull up or down, or away from my body just to breathe. It's gotta be "set it and forget it!"

While making jewelry, comfort is always in the back of my mind. Even as the last bead is put on the strand, I "try on" the necklace or bracelet before crimping it and calling it done. It HAS to feel right. Much to my delight, the first time I tried on Filigree for Me, it was like putting on jammies after a long day. This is an easy to wear bracelet, light and soft enough not to irritate, but intricately detailed enough to call attention to itself.
