instruction manual for concrete jewellery

I am a concrete piece of jewellery. I am strong but sensitive.
I’m very superficial and my appearance is important to me. My surface will change colour and acquire the odd scratch - because I am alive. I get darker, more shiny or more rough. It’s in my nature – they call it patina. I am like no other. a unique piece. I was handmade so my colour tones vary from time to time. Vent holes are a character trait. I love to be the centre of attention, please take me out and show me around. I don’t like water much, so please take me off before you wash but don’t forget me by the sink. external pressure and falls from great heights are no friends of mine. I could break and our friendship would end too soon. I am really quite something. Wear me with attitude and take care of me.
