Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Meaning and Origin extracted from The Phrase Finder:

The perception of beauty is subjective.

This saying first appeared in the 3rd century BC in Greek.

It didn’t appear in its current form in print until the 19th century, but in the meantime there were various written forms that expressed much the same thought.

The person who is widely credited with coining the saying in its current form is Margaret Wolfe Hungerford who wrote many books, often under the pseudonym of ‘The Duchess’.

In Molly Bawn, 1878, there’s the line “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder“, which might the earliest citation of this phrase.

In today’s post, we are also sharing three necklaces that I’ve mixed-and-matched using the some merchandises which are slightly flawed (unable to sell but didn’t wish to throw them away) and some of my baby sister’s old necklaces and a key chain that she has nearly forgotten about:

The original necklace has the pendant of the big circle with those beautiful words and I decided to add in the pendant (with two missing gems at the middle of the wheel) of our Carriage & A Lost Slipper Necklace.

I was so happy (and still happy about it) when she wore it to work during the other day. 😀

This is actually our one of our ‘Randomly Charms’ long necklaces (which is still not listed in our store at the moment). Everything is perfect about this necklace until when we spotted a tiny and yet out-of-place connector in the middle of the chain (!! angry !!).

So I disconnected that connector and used the holder of a key chain to make up for the missing stretch of chain.

Yes! The pendant in this picture is the ‘partner’ of the holder I’ve used on the second necklace. 😀

Personally, I think the robot is too heavy to be a key chain and this explains why my sister did not really want to use it in the first place. However, as a pendant the weight itself would be a pro factor and I think it is looking lovely too.

Since I’ve an extra chain from the ‘carriage’ pendant, I decided to match  it with this Robot pendant.

Everyone may be faceless or even nameless in this blog-o-sphere

But via all the lovely writings that we’ve read

 We can still  see

That beautiful soul in you 

Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN
