Tea With the Duchess

Sit up straight. 
A tea cup is held with two fingers and the thumb with all other digits in an outward direction.  Be polite and discuss the weather. Never talk politics or religion.

Black tea with lemon is frowned upon unless in the colonies. 

Never stay more than two pots of tea. Use jam in moderation.

Tea with the Duchess necklace
26cm/ 10 inches long x 5cm/ 2 inches wide.
Made from tea accessory, watch parts, cameo, silver spoon, coins.

I am more like lots of scones with lashings of jam and cream dripping on my jeans, slouching, talking religion with a long black coffee. Actually, that is pretty much how this piece was made.
