Bejeweled

The day before yesterday, I took all my silver in to have it cleaned. Tiffany's, little did I know, cleans your Tiffany jewelry for free. Who knew? The hub had received an email stating just that. (I don't even want to be on that mailing list, thank you! DANGER WILL ROBINSON--DANGER!) And so I gathered all my presents over the years from my family.

I used to wear all these bracelets 24.7 until the day (or night) came when I had to begin wearing wrist guards to bed each night because of my carpal tunnel. Loverly. The poor hub had to sleep through all of my clanking all night for years! From the time I was a teen, I always was adorned with bracelets up and down my arm. My mom would always ask me how on earth I could stand them all! lol They were part of me. Oh the turquoise I've lost in those days here and there. I graduated to Tiffany way later in life only because my loved ones spoiled me with these gorgeous classics for a birthday or Christmas present. I don't always wear the charm bracelets, but I always have on my two "good luck" pieces each and every day. One is the colorful bracelet the hub found for me in Brisbane, details here. Each semi-precious stone takes care of different aspects of your life and body. Yay. The little blue topaz is part of a bracelet my friend Pam made for me. I adore it. It also includes yellow topaz (or citrine), my birthstone (top photo).

Now, I always have on my two pieces each day. One is a gift from the hub purchased in Brisbane, details here. Each semi-precious stone takes care of different aspects of your life and body. Yay. Need that, for sure. The little blue topaz is part of a bracelet my friend Pam made for me. I adore it. It also includes yellow topaz (or citrine), my birthstone (top photo). I love the hook detail.

The hub.

And on the other side, me! Look at the wear and tear. Ooooooof.

The hub and the teenager, dually represented.

And flipped, the kid and I.

One of my favorite flowering trees is the dogwood, Virginia's state tree.

And of course, you need a watering can to water the tree, right?

Beautiful! When I worked at the little school in Virginia before we moved, the kid would say he could hear me coming down the hall with all my bracelets jingling. Once I walked into a classroom and a child said, "I thought you were a dog coming down the hall!" ha.

You have some nice silver jewelry as illustrated by your excellent close-up photographs. As always, your Photoshop opening image is well done. I really like the one on the previous post.

LOL still giggling at the "I thought you were a dog coming down the hall" remark! hehe I always wore my charm bracelet when I was a teen and just the other day when I took it out of my jewelry box, I thought to myself, "how the heck did I wear this day in and day out, it's HEAVY!" lol These days I only wear a very delicate gold chain bracelet on my right wrist and watch on my left wrist. xoxo

I use to wear alot of turquoise bracelets and rings. I use to have a ring on every finger in my teen years. I probably will never own any Tiffany but it sure is pretty. And I love all your pretty bracelets.

Your jewelry is beautiful! Silver is my favorite.

I used to wear a lot of bracelets when I was younger but now I seldom wear anything but earrings and some days I even forget to put them on!!

Charm bracelets make me think of my favorite aunt. She always wore something jangly and since she talked with her hands a lot, it was quite noisy but I loved that sound.

These are gorgeous -- I love the charms. It reminds me I need to get mine out. They're "in" again -- and so pretty. For many years, my history was on my charm bracelet; now it's nice memories.
