Some of you may remember that I bought a cute, decorative watch last year which I love,
though as it turns out I cannot read the time on it.
and it turns my wrist into a grey tarnished mess.
I still wear it and just deal with the problems as best I can.
Then, at the Elora art show I went to last week, I wandered into a tent displaying some exquisite glasswork. There were four watches on the table that hadn't sold at the artist's Christmas show and at the last minute she decided to include them in this one.
I fell in love with one... the bracelet part is glass.
I bought it. I love it because it is so pretty and I can read the numbers
except that it is a devil to work the clasp and after wearing it once, the little glass (plastic) crystal fell out.
Because I bought it at an art fair, I can't just go back to the store to return it or get it repaired (replaced, really, since I can't find the crystal) free of charge, I should think. But, I can't wear it as it is.
I am not sure how to deal with this. Any ideas? Would you email her? and if you did what would you ask her to do about it?
