Victorian Women & Their Bling: Maude

And then there's Maude...

 or rather Matilda but Maude for short.  Her hair is grayer than it appears--her thin lips, thin eyelashes and photographer's inexpert removal of lines around her eyes all suggest Maude is a matriarch-- wise and sweetly wizened.  Yes, it can happen--the sweetly wizened bit.  I'm counting on it.

 I'm sure she did her own needle work and lovely it is at that.

Her earrings don't appear to have a stone for certain but if they do I reckon it to be a garnet.

In any event, she's lovely and quite likely to have been a beauty in her day.
