So, that's the inspiration, and that's the creation. More to come, (I have martini charms, too). I think these will be great for Christmas gifts. Easy to make and fun to use! I'm quite happy to incorporate this new stuff into my otherwise all-jewelry store.
In the meantime, another thought on Shakespeare and wine. Here's some trivia: In which Shakespearean play is wine most often mentioned? Think about it... here it comes.
Yes, that would be Antony and Cleopatra. There are eight references to wine in the play. However, in The Tempest you'll fine seven, as is the same for Othello. Wine and its effects permeate the very fabric of Antony and Cleopatra. You could even interpret the work as a struggle between the forces of sobriety -- Octavius Caesar -- and the champions of indulgence -- Antony and Cleopatra. FYI, I don't just know this. I happen to be sitting here with a box of "After Dinner Shakespeare" cards. Fun stuff. Now I'm off to study! :)
