OK. Well, maybe it never left. But for me, it was never there in the first place! I'm a silver kind of gal (white gold for the wedding bands). Gold seemed, well... old. It seemed a little too traditional, like something that my mom was expected to wear. Silver was for more youthful, hipper folks. Now, however, I can see the error of my ways! I have seen the light! Gold is actually pretty darn cool, especially matte gold mixed with silver elements. Gold isn't just for old ladies! It's for everyone - and it's definitely for me. Here's a piece I created using some sweet little ribbon-like links.
