The Worry Doll Earrings
When I was a little girl my parents gave me a tiny woven pouch, filled with 7 or 8 tiny woven worry dolls from Guatemala and I remember loving their magical concept. For every worry or trouble on your mind, you could whisper one to a doll before bed, pop her under your pillow and come morning, she (and all of her sisters and their numerous other troubles) would magically have gifted you the wisdom to best cope with that particular worry. I decided (especially in light of such troubled times) that perhaps it might be time for a grownup version. Going out on a first date (on zoom)? Got a job interview (on zoom)? Need to remind yourself that you’re nothing but fabulous and just because you didn’t do dry jan doesn’t mean you’re the devil and destined to fail, grow horns and end up cold and alone (IRL)? Tell it to one of your worry dolls. She’s got you and you can wear her (and her sister) all day long.
