I remember when I was younger and I would sneak into my mom’s room and look at all her pretty vintage jewelry on her dresser. I would look at her pieces and then carefully put them back where they belonged. I couldn’t wait until I was older and had my own.
Now that I’m older, I’ve created a collection of my own. It has evolved over the years. In junior high, I loved wearing big, bold beads and stuff that looked like candy. Everything was as bright as Lisa Frank gear. Now my collection is a little more refined, and making your own jewelry makes it even more fun.
A lot of my jewelry I wear the most I actually made. I love finding charms in clearance bins or in thrift stores and making new jewelry with them. I don’t have any expensive jewelry because I feel it is a waste of money. Why would I wear diamond earrings, when I would where fake ones that cost me only a few bucks?
Here’s a peek at some of my stash. I have another jewelry holder on my nightstand with rings and bigger earrings.
I made this jewelry holder. It was super easy. Just hot glue or staple lace inside a frame. I made this one 3 years ago, and it’s still holding up nice.
My birdcage is from Michael’s, with a vintage Avon owl inside it.
I love owls. 🙂
After Christmas the gift sets are so cheap, and Victoria’s Secret has their Semi Annual Sale, so I stock up on more perfume. My favorites are sweet or food-like smells.
