Tell us the story of a piece of jewelry you own. Where did it come from, and what does it mean to you?
When I was fifteen, I decided to leave the small theater school I had been a part of for four years. I had never attended public school and, as an actor, was curious about "experiencing" the typical high school thing in order to use it later in my work. I knew I probably wouldn't enjoy it, but nonetheless, I did it and looking back, I am glad. I made several lifelong friends during the short time I attended FHS.
Now back to the prompt......the jade and silver ring. As I was leaving the theater, one of my teachers and fellow performers was also leaving to take a job with a rep company in another state. She always wore this ring on her pinky during performances. I think it was a bit "much" for her everyday jewelry rotation. While getting ready in the dressing room one evening, she gave me the ring. She said it had been given to her in a similar way. I still have the ring even though my fingers are too fat to wear it.
