'A jewel of a poetry collection’ (Oxford Times)
‘its seductive sparkle’ (Tatler)
Strings of Pearls: A collection of poems
While having fun with Washing Lines: A collection of poems, Barbara and Janie discovered they have many other things in common, including an interest in all things precious, semi-precious and sparkly. This is a book of poems inspired by the seductive sparkle of jewels and jewellery, and the emotions they arouse and represent.
Every culture since time immemorial has understood the importance of jewellery, whether plain or precious, so this book of ‘pearls’ is not only for poetry lovers but also for anyone who has ever treasured a piece of jewellery.
