More jewelry ramblings...


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, August 04, 2005 10:59 PM (Eastern)

I'm wearing my cool amber earrings today. My daughter chose these...she is my fashion consultant.

I went through virtually all of the amber earrings on the stand; I've never owned amber earrings before. There were the usual deep reddish-brown stones, the deep green ones, and then these deep goldeny yellow ones that I ended up buying.

Again--you cannot touch amber with soap. I tend to wash my earrings, the wires at least, in soap and water, but for delicate stones you must carefully wash only the wires and never let soap touch the stone.

These look so cool and so Russian, in a sentimental way.

I do not believe in wearing all new jewelry. To me it looks...tacky somehow. As if you owned absolutely nothing, went into a shop, and got everything yesterday. Whether or not this happens to be true, style is all about, well, appearances...isn't it? I dislike the impression. So it's well to mix a new piece in with older pieces, until it becomes an older piece itself.

Mmmm...I'm still chewing on that Hello Kitty book. There's even a checklist...for all of your basics.
