metal and stone

I have a thing with jewelry. It is similar to how I feel about sleeping with a heavy blanket-not because it keeps me warm-but more-so because the weight of it is comforting. When I put a ring or necklace on it tends to sit just so that I feel a constant comfortable weight of metal and stone on me. On the flip side when I come home from being out the first thing I do is take off all of my jewelry, after a while I feel too weighed down. The next morning I usually find pretty little piles of it next to my keyboard or on my bedside table.

(by the by my little chain bracelet has a quote etched on it that I love. "My location would change, but I would always have memory." Haynes)

  1. Oh I remember seeing these stashes of jewelry back in our roommate days! I loved trying on all your rings... and vintage clothes. I'm so glad we got to party last night! I miss you.

  2. I have the same kind of love/hate thing with my jewelry... i want it all on, then later i want it all off. you're right about the comforting thing, i like wearing substantive bracelets or always find my hands playing with a necklace when i'm wearing one.

  9. I do the same exact thing. I'm always having to retrace my steps to find where I left a pile of jewelry!
