Dream jobs - someone else's job that appears so much better than your own

My absolute number 1 dream job would be this mans' job

David Thomas - Recently retired Crown Jeweller for the British Royal Family.
Not only did he look after the crown jewels, he looked after the personally owned jewellery the Royal family wears.



In an article in the The Telegraph UK
he tells how he once had to restring the Queen Mother's pearl necklace in a day.
3 strands of pearls, each with a knot between them, they can't be too tight nor too loose - I bet it was a very long day



David also helped Diana, The Princess of Wales design this pearl choker using the diamond and sapphire brooch the Queen Mother gave her for a wedding gift.
