Nice Neat Necklaces
It's a slow news day here in blogland, so I'm scraping the bottom of my idea barrel to bring you this hard-hitting story.
I've been wanting to organize my hanging necklaces for ages. They used to be tangled in uncooperative jumbles, a half dozen or so tumbling into my hands when I was after only one. But a couple of weekends ago I finally got around to remedying that. I tossed a few pieces that were beyond help and dismantled a few more to use in future jewelry-making projects. But for the most part, my collection remained intact.
As I examined each necklace, I realized that my taste has gotten bolder over the years, so much so that I rarely wear these more delicate pieces, instead going for the chunky beaded numbers nestled in my hatboxes or my own oversized creations (see below for a [small] sampling).
Funny how our stuff says so much about us, huh? What does your stuff say about you? (It's completely fine, by the way, if you don't want to answer. It just sounds so much friendlier to end this kind of post with a reader-oriented question, don't you think?)
