Lynn’s Comments: My father has been buying me jewellery ever since I was a little girl. I received a pearl necklace at age 10, rose quartz beads when I was 15 and a stunning long strand of amber beads upon high school graduation. I loved some pieces and grew to love the others like the amber beads over the years. At a young age, I did not understand the value and significant beauty of some beads. However, this changed as I grew older.
I now wear beads according to my mood and style of dress. Some of my favorites include a crystal and rudraksha bead necklace from India, turquoise beads from Egypt and and an olivewood rosary from Jerusalem. It brings me pleasure when I go shopping for beads in other countries.
Over time, I have received gifts of beads from others. In 2008, I was given a bead of tourmaline stones which I was told is excellent for one’s health and cleans the different chakras. I was so happy when I received that beaded necklace. More recently, I held an End of Chemo Party and received a Buddhist bracelet made of sandalwood beads which I have been wearing ever since.

Lynn’s Comments: I attended the Launch Party of the International Fashion Festival Toronto 2012 on July 4th, 2012 with guests at the Grand Victorian Convention Centre. I love fashion and learning about different styles. There were well known sought after Indian designers such as Vikram Phandis present, along with Super Models and Bollywood sensation Hamza Faruqi.
