Clothes Diet: Jewelry

I am currently in the the third month of my 2013 clothes buying diet and I'm in the process of documenting the items of clothing and jewelry that are getting me through this year. I will be writing a small ebook about my year of not buying clothes, but throughout the year I will be writing a few posts on the actual process. A couple Saturdays ago, I decided to go through my jewelry box and document what I actually have. I don't have a lot of jewelry and most of it has been given to me or I've purchased items from places I've visited around the world, but it's a good, small place to start.

I purchased this necklace at Target for a holiday party. It's cool, but I don't know if I will keep it.

This is one of my favorite necklaces. It's a beautiful amber teardrop from Copenhagen.

I made this necklace from some turquoise and jasper beads.

My earrings and rings sit in a small pottery bowl from the Oregon Coast.

My typical, every day earrings.

More "business-y" earrings.

Some more amber from Denmark.

An asymmetrical ring from Denmark.

The left ring was made in Thailand and I got the wood ring on Easter Island.

My watches: a waterproof New Balance watch for traveling and a Skagen watch.

The necklace is a rain tree seed that I picked up in Fiji and the wood bracelet is from a local vintage shop.

Another vintage shop necklace.

A necklace from Denmark with a Viking ship and a fish on an old coin.

A few bracelets given to me by friends.

My name in Viking runes and a few shells I've picked up from various tropical islands.

A shell necklace I picked up on Easter Island.

The top earrings were a gift from my mother and the bottom earrings I purchased from New Tribe Textiles on Etsy.

A set of  three beaded necklaces I received as a gift at Burning Man 2012.
