Junk jewelry

I love fake jewelry... you?

Bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pins, and pendants, charms, brooches, rhinestone pieces, hair accessories, bits, parts, beads... love them all.

And wear them too... everyday, everywhere I go.

Sometimes I'd forget to take my earrings off at night before going to bed... so I go to sleep wearing them... until in the middle of my dreams I remember I have something on my ears—a flower; a gem; perhpas a butterfly fluttering on my hair, and I have to get up and take my jewels off before I can really faint away into a deeper sleep.

Last weekend I decided that I was going to organize everything to make it easier for me to find what I'm looking for...

So I got the "Queen" out and arranged some of my favorite pretty necklaces on her...

I also chose a pretty vintage cup and saucer to displayed earrings, hearts, baubles and beads...
Everything looks so pretty!

These gems seem to have life in them... they may not be valuable, but their colors speak to me in ways that go beyond words... they're real treasures to me.

I even use them as decorations... ;)

I particularly love pearls...

And love to decorate my house with my faux pearl necklaces... ;)

Are you this crazy in love with fake "junk" jewelry, or do you prefer the 'real' stuff?

Ummm, I wonder why would anyone want to draw attention to themselves with statement jewelry anyway?

I will say... just be yourself, be happy, enjoy life, and wear what you love, even if it means junk jewelry!  ;)

Have a lovely Saturday, every one!
I'm joining the "SMILES" linky party today


  1. We share a similar taste in jewelery, once a friend complimented my bracelet and then she said "I like costume jewelry too". Rather than junk, I like the softer word costume LOL. Your display is fabulous, especially the queen.

  2. Love all your pretty jewelry. I love costume or real, but mostly costume.
    You have some beautiful pieces.
    Happy Sunday.

  3. My lindo Cielo, I also enjoy junk jewelry! I have so many of them !!!!

  4. Hi lovely Cielo.
    I'm hosting a Blog Hop @ and if you're interested I'd love to see one of your beautiful posts linked up over there. All your posts and pictures are so magical and it would be wonderful to share them with my friends.
    Hope to see you there :)

  5. I too Love all my Jewelry... whether faux or the Real Deal. My Bohemian Bling is part of the Essence of me and I display it much like you do so that I can look at and Enjoy it whether I'm wearing it or not.

    Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  6. I have some old fake jewelry I'll never part with. I love your pictures! One tricky thing I did was use fake jewel necklaces to tie back my curtains on a hot day. It looked really cool!
