I always liked the UK comedy programme Blackadder. The larger than life characters that made up the show were well cast and although it is now sometimes described as ‘of its time’ some of the sketches still make me laugh today.
One of the memorable ones was in the episode ‘Money’ where Lord Percy (played by Tim McInnerny) is trying to make gold using the ancient craft of alchemy.
So It will probably come as no surprise to anyone who liked the show and watched this particular episode that it amused me somewhat when I was asked if I could photograph a bracelet that can only be described as made of ‘Purest Green’.
The bracelet certainly won’t win my backing for jewellery item of the year but taste is subjective.
