I was the Head Buyer at Beyond Retro for many years, which meant I had the chance to travel the world finding treasure for their stores. I was often sent to India to purchase new ranges of accessories for our upcoming Summer collections. This was the favorite part of my job because I love hunting for treasures and then seeing them sell on the shop floor.
I left Beyond Retro five months ago to pursue my love of travel; however, it seems I can't shake my buyer's eye. So as I eyed up many a shopkeepers' gems and jewels in Nepal, I couldn't help but purchase this antique Tibetan necklace. The necklace I feel brought me some luck as it inspired me to start buying interesting accessories to sell on my Etsy store, which will fund further travelling.
Over the next few months, while I am in India (I fly to Varanasi September 20th!) I will be hunting out some extraordinary accessories and other eastern delights to sell--but I think I will happily keep hold of this Tibetan necklace, as I think it is rather special.
Will keep you all posted on the pieces I buy in India.
