I made this pair of earrings recently for an evening out. They somehow remind me of something Jane might have worn on her wedding day; small and understated, yet glinting in the sun like the small light she was in the darkness of Thornfield.
"You examine me, Miss Eyre," he said. "Do you think me handsome?"
"Do you never laugh, Miss Eyre? Only rarely perhaps. But you're not naturally austere, any more than I'm naturally vicious. I can see in you the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close set bars of a cage, a vivid, restless captive. Were it but free, it would soar, cloud high."
I just love this book; I could quote it all day! And now, what do you think of Jane Eyre? Do you enjoy darker stories? Which movie adaptations have you seen/liked? I'm warning you, the 2011 version is definitely my favorite. :)
Enjoy this spring day!
