It's funny how our minds work. I was raised by my grandparents, but life with my grandmother wasn't always rosy. Still, I have some very good memories too, and I always remember her Wedgewood cameo brooch. She wanted one so badly, and so she saved up some money and went to the jewellery store and bought one.
I don't know what happened to it after she died, but I always remembered it fondly. I thought it was so pretty. I'd love to have one today, but I'm not even really sure where I'd buy one, or when I'd ever wear it. And so it was quite the day when I discovered the Wedgewood fountain pen.
I'm not sure if Wedgewood actually makes it, although all the paperwork that came with it uses that name. It's very heavy, and it has that same matte enamel finish on it, and the same colors, as my grandma's cameo pin. You can get a brown version, too, but I had to have the blue one. It writes beautifully, but that's just a bonus. I finally got my cameo. And when I pick it up, I remember the good times.
