Ala Gypsy: Jewels..my jewels....



Oh, I love jewellery...always have.....figures though, .....for I am my mothers daughter.


I went through all the stages...the make-it -yourself-senior -year style (plastic coloured beads with elastic), the 60s.... 70s.... 80s.....(and by now you figured out my age)....the we-only-wear-gold phase....the bohemian costume jewellery (that I loved...what self respecting gypsy won`t)......oh you`ll have to help me with a few.


But my favourite jewellery throughout all the years....... and a signature Gypsy Purple mark..... is my lovely, lovely bracelets!!! I can`t go without their clinging and the music that they make. I always pick them out carefully, for they are part of my soul (a bit bohemian, a bit of bling with a mixture of earthiness) ........and there you have me


What do your jewellery tell me about you????

Love jewellery like a magpie I hoard it in my nest. I look longingly at it with my nose pressed up against shop windows, can't resist buying it and yet rarely wear it.

I CANNOT stress this enough...if I forget even one of my rings, it will ruin my whole day...I fidget with them endlessly...without them I am incomplete.

also, I loved going through my moms jewelry box...it was a hidden wonderland of what being pretty was all about to me.

I asore jewelry. I own so much of it that I do not even know what I own. But, my bracelets. People complain in my office, but they can't make me take them off becasue I am self-employed. hee. And, the rings.. Like Miss Stiletto I have my faves I can not live without.

Jewelry...love it! I don't wear a lot....but I always wear something. My current favs include fun necklaces....bright colorful...usually a bracelet as well and always earrings. I teach...and my students always love to look at my jewelry and as questions....I went through a phase where I wore pins...every day...my sister gave me a minnow...you kno, the little fish...that was dipped in a clear acrylic....biy was it a hit!!!

a little bit of bling, lots of natural, earthy colour...with some red thrown in for good value! Vintage, modern, love it all!

Long strains of beads are my favorite!

I have a very generous husband...who sees jewelry as an investment! How about that?
I buy cheap stuff for myself...
