More Blue Beady Bling...
I like putting pictures of my bead bracelets up here because I like looking at them. They remind me of treasure...not that I have much acquaintance with treasure but you see it in the movies, you see it on the Tower of London tour, the Edinburgh Castle tour, sparkling on Mary's head every time she goes to a gala occasion (and then ends up on the cover of Woman's Day)...you get a feel for what it'd be like...you know, being around jewels....don't you?
Well, these bracelets are my jewels. I don't wear earrings...I let my ear holes close up after the birth of my first child....the one who used to think grabbing those sleeper earrings and pulling for all she was worth, was pretty funny, even funnier when mummy started shrieking in pain. I don't wear necklaces much either...something about feeling like I have a noose around my neck...an unsavoury past life maybe?
But I am partial to a little bling on my arm, it makes me smile....in fact, when you think about it, bracelets are one of the few pieces of jewellery that the wearer can actually enjoy...those and rings. I'd look pretty darn odd walking down the street gazing down at my own chest in the faint hope of getting a glimpse of my necklace...wouldn't I? As for earrings...lost cause...I ain't never gonna catch a glimpse of those babies...unless I stop near the shiny side of an escalator and peer into it shiftily...then I'd probably just get booted out of the mall.
I even go so far as to sacrifice my watch in order to wear a bracelet (something on both wrists feels a bit too busy for me). And who needs to know what time it is when they have some pretty sparkles on their wrist? The doctor will wait...won't he ;-). I go about checking my till receipts in order to see what time it is (I don't carry a mobile....I know, you're thinking what planet does this girl come from?). The whole till receipt time-telling doesn't always work though...some people have obviously never set the clocks on their tills!
But I really am getting carried away here...I just mean't to pop on here and show you two bracelets....and now you've had Sam's guide to Jewellery Psychology 101...sorry.
The lovely striped focal beads, and the turquoise spacer beads are by Avaline at imakebeads on Etsy.
Those gorgeous blue focals are by Jelveh of Jelveh Designs, also on Etsy.
Well, that's all I had to say. Best go make some dinner! Have a lovely evening.
PS. Don't forget, my blog candy finishes next Wednesday...check it out here.
