I love jewelry. I love having materials from the earth wrapped around my body. It's fun! They make you feel beautiful, harsh, or whatever you're feeling. They're really statement pieces and can say so much about someone with such little use of surface area.
Lots of them from all of the women in my family. I wear them to keep them with me. Some all at once for protection. Some on special occasions that are most like that specific person. They are my most scared objects holding all of the events in the life of the women that made me. My most favorites are my Nana's scarab bracelet which was also my great grandmothers (paternal side), and a big heavy gold ring with a gold rose surrounding an inset pearl and a sapphire that my maternal Norwegian great grandmother made in Brooklyn. My mom said she wore it everyday - it's really so unbelievably gorgeous.
