While in Portugal, I didn't really see anything exceptional that I wanted to bring home for a souvenir. Most of the items in the stores were things that are readily available here at home, so I wasn't even tempted by buy anything. BUT, when we got to Boston, I saw a booth full of beautiful, unique jewelry for sale made by an amazing artist and I just couldn't resist! The colors of the beach stones that she uses for her work include nearly every color of the rainbow - and the way she combines them, alters them (a tiny bit), and presents them were so perfect for a natural presentation. The necklace I chose has mostly pale green stones and I just love it.
