Snake Bracelet

I wanted to buy a snake bracelet – you know, the kind that wrap around your wrist like a snake would do. What a great place to buy one – in Egypt! So, we shopped around.

Trying to find a trustworthy jewelry store was a challenge in an already trinket-filled souq.

We found what we thought was a trustworthy jeweler. But, a few days later my bracelet broke in half. It wasn’t made of metal. It was made of a cheap filler with a thin metal coating.

Oh well… 🐍

S, 🇪🇬
