Classic Baltic Amber and Silver Hornet/Large Bee Brooch
Classic Baltic Amber and Silver Hornet/Large Bee Brooch

5.0 out of 5 stars Could a Hornet be So Beautiful?, 20 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery and beautiful presentation from Henryka, but, actually, that's beside the point: this piece is stupendous. Large and lifelike with filigree wings, I would recommend it without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars These wristbands are an excellent alternative to the medical alert jewellery on offer, 1 Jun. 2016

These wristbands are an excellent alternative to the medical alert jewellery on offer. I chose a child's size because I'm a small woman and had to add a small piece of "fluffy" velcro to the excess on the "burry" side of the strap to stop it rubbing. No trouble. I've got two wristbands to enable washing.
What's great about these is the ability to write a good bit of information on the three-fold plasticised card which slides inside the fluffy velcro. You'll need a fine CD marker to write with, eg., a Staedtler Permanent Lumocolor "S". The card is said to be waterproof.
You also sign up with vital.com in order to have a medical record accessible online to any medic looking after you. I didn't bother, just gave my GP's telephone number. What it was essential for me to say was that I'd got an Advance Decision, and, "please don't save me for life in a care home".

2.0 out of 5 stars First use as per instructions went fine, however, 24 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only suitable for a one-off job. First use as per instructions went fine, however, afterwards the "nib" needed cleaning, which caused the nib unit to come loose and fall out. Subsequent attempts have resulted in blots, some large large enough to form an inkwell, into which I dipped the nib and used the spillage. The marker is probably nearly empty now and I'll be looking for something else in white that can reliably be capped and used again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not skiffle!, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before I make my comments, please note that I'm reviewing the one CD only version.

This brilliant and enjoyable music is just the job for classcial aficionados who are also jazz fans. For my shelves, I've categorised it as "Post-Modern Purcell". In Baroque music, there is alway dance and I believe the continuo players were permitted to improvise anyway, so the notions of rhythm and experimentation were always there.

The main reason for my review, though, is to contest the statement that the work contains "skiffle" and to quell the idea that it's going to be bashed out on strummed guitar, washboard and one-string tea chest bass. Nothing could be further from the truth. The pianist and guitarist play jazz at times, but the whole thing couldn't be more refined.

The use of a soprano who doesn't sound classically trained, or not fully so, is interesting - and poignant.

This is an enormous scarf, more like a shawl really. On, it's quite bulky.

These are the ones I should have bought to get into my gap. The heads are small and round. If you've got difficult places to get into, the "White" heads, which are oval, may be too large.
