I can remember when I was a young girl and I loved exploring my mum’s jewellery box. I very rarely tried anything on, I just enjoyed looking at all the pretty sparkly objects!
Nothing much has changed as an adult. For me, buying jewellery is much more fun than clothes. Fashion has always has evaded me, I feel like I’m constantly trying to keep up! Jewellery is much simpler and can be enjoyed simply for what it is!
I have pieces in my jewellery box from my mum, from as a child, from my teenage years and even jewellery I’ve found on the floor (a vintage Filigree bracelet which is my most treasured item!). Unlike clothes jewellery rarely dates and I know I can carry on wearing the same pair of earrings for most of my life.
My absolute favourite pair of earrings! I’ve had these 5+ years and they always get compliments! I definitely have a thing for massive earings.
My most recent jewellery haul from Kukee. Pretty, modern jewellery and reasonably priced. I usually favour more classic pieces of jewellery and usually go for earings and necklaces, I’ve been brave and bought some more unusual items and some rings which I hardly wear!
I’m very grateful to have such a nice collection.
