This week has been immensely wonderful and very busy. I've also received news that the headquarters of my work may be moving later this year ... so partial excitement has been going through my veins with anticipation as well as slight hesitation. All of this energy triggered me to rummage through my things, particularly costume and jewellery boxes—that sudden feeling came of needing to dress-up, taking small captures of favourite pieces and items that I have not worn in a long time.
A costume jewel and feather mask that I molded/designed years ago.
In some cultures jewellery is displayed as a status ranking or security, others are influenced by lifestyle, religion, and geographical locations for impressions of significance amongst countless alternative elements. It's interesting to me that decades ago, and even centuries ago many women who wore jewellery were more likely to have received it as a gift.
Today, we acquire beautiful pieces that we love freely, we're able to don any type independently. We can have fun with varied pieces, integrate them into our daily styling, and create a personal new meaning despite the appearance. Less might be more at times or more just may be the less that you're seeking. Jewellery: A perfect addition or finishing touch to our clothing.
Do you have a favourite piece of jewellery or accessory whether fine pieces, costume, shells, leather or plastic, etc., that you really cherish?
The Fun Begins:
Remember this vintage necklace? Well, I did wear it with a dress, but here's me just having mobile fun with a favourite piece from the archives.
Enjoy the weekend lovelies!
