- If your necklace clasp falls to the front of your neck it means someone is thinking about you
- If your necklace clasp falls to the front of your neck you can make a wish if you kiss the clasp before putting it back behind your neck
- If the clasp of your necklace moves around to the left in front of your neck it means someone is thinking about you
- If the clasp of your necklace moves around to the right in front of your neck it means someone is talking about you
- If your necklace clasp falls to the front of your neck it means your sweetheart is thinking about you; kiss the clasp before putting it back and he’ll know you’re thinking of him
- If a necklace breaks you’ll have bad luck
When I was a girl at Martins Creek School we paid serious attention to necklace clasps 🙂
I don’t know about all that folklore, but I do know where you can find beautiful necklaces: over in Chitter’s Stamey Creek Creations Etsy store.

MOUNTAIN FLAVORS – TRADITIONAL APPALACHIAN COOKING
Location: John C. Campbell Folk School – Brasstown, NC
Date: Sunday, August 23 – Saturday, August 29, 2020
Instructors: Carolyn Anderson, Tipper Pressley
Experience the traditional Appalachian method of cooking, putting up, and preserving the bounty from nature’s garden. Receive hands-on training to make and process a variety of jellies, jams, and pickles for winter eating. You’ll also learn the importance of dessert in Appalachian culture and discover how to easily make the fanciest of traditional cakes. Completing this week of cultural foods, a day of bread making will produce biscuits and cornbread. All levels welcome.
Along with all that goodness Carolyn and I have planned a couple of field trips to allow students to see how local folks produce food for their families. The Folk School offers scholarships you can go here to find out more about them. For the rest of the class details go here.
