That reminds me of last summer when I was in a shop in Cornwall selling work by local artists and craftspeople.
There was a lovely silver bangle set with a large stone of unusual pale green serpentine.
It was in a locked glass case so the girl behind the desk unlocked it, took the bangle out and bent it slightly to put it over my wrist .......... it snapped in half!!!
I was so relieved that she'd done it and not me
