Why did I name my new "business" Serendipity?
Because I am so smart with fancy words?
Are you kidding me?
I never had an English lesson, I taught myself when I came here in 1955
so here goes :
M. E. Graebner describes serendipitous value in the context of the acquisition of a business as "windfalls that were not anticipated by the buyer prior to the deal"
the word has been voted as one of the ten English words that were hardest to translate.
So why do I call my business Serendipity? None of the above apply for me. Simply that in 1969 another grey haired lady had a bead shop and taught me everything about the difference in beads. At that point I had never heard of a Murano bead, jet beads were foreign to me let alone the difference between glass and crystal. It was the age of Aquarius and beads were “in”. Her shop was “Serendipity” and I will always remember her.
Now I am 79 and needed to restart my engines, husband passed on with Alzheimer disease. Son taught me about gemstones such as Jasper, Jade, Onyx, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli and a whole lot more about unexpected beads made from fossils.
I fell in love with the natural design in all these pieces and now I am back in business
I am hoping that you will enjoy viewing my collection, I add and change this every week
So be my guest and try on a necklace, enjoy the designs and colors in nature.
By the way, my name is Jeannot
That is what I posted in my new mini shop!!!!!Serendipity
the quote may just work :""windfalls that were not anticipated by the buyer prior to the deal"
