I found piece of glass on a beach. It was beautifully polished by the ocean, I kept it for some time.
One day I found it in my desk and liked it even more for being with me all these years, and I knew immediately what to do with it.
It was made of sand, served it's purpose as an object, had a long journey in the ocean, got new shape and look, got back to the land, was found it and got the second chance.

The cravat is a neckband, the forerunner of the modern tailored necktie and bow tie, originating from 17th-century Croatia.[2]
From the end of the 16th century, the term band applied to any long-strip neckcloth that was not a ruff. The ruff, a starched, pleated white linen strip, originated earlier in the 16th century as a neckcloth (readily changeable, to minimize the soiling of a doublet), as a bib, or as a napkin. A band could be either a plain, attached shirt collar or a detachable "falling band" that draped over the doublet collar. It is possible that cravats were initially worn to hide shirts which were not immaculately clean.[3] Alternatively, it was thought to serve as psychological protection of the neck during battle from attack by a spear.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cravat)
