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!
