It was really strange to discover all the bits and pieces I used to own, and had completely forgotten about. There were also some pieces I had made myself, all last worn in my early 20s...
I had even made the box myself! It is cardboard, painted black with a teal rim...
|Three tiered cardboard jewellery box|
|The three 'drawers'|
|The contents - jewellery of another time, another me...|
|I made the frog earrings, and to the left are ancient coins and sea glass I found beach combing|
|This is the only piece I actually remembered, and sometimes wondered where it had ended up...|
|two handmade silver necklaces, that I will repair and wear again!|
|I made these two pairs of earrings as well... |
The bottom ones are silver which I painted with gouache, then applied crackle glaze. Amazingly it has lasted!
|I had three piercings in one ear, and used to wear these two and a little crescent moon in one side, and the other crescent on the other side. Such a hippy :-)|
