I am finally starting to get through posting on all my recent purchases! It’s crazy how busy I am now that I have finished school which seems really strange? I’m not actually busy busy but I have just been on holiday mode where everything takes longer and I fuss around the house doing ‘important things’ such as re-arranging my room, making elaborate lunches and playing with my cats. Plus I have been trying to catch up with some close before they fly off to Germany on exchange!
Lately I have been trying to bulk up my jewellery collection, I have quite a few pieces but I only wear a few of them. For those of you who don’t know I am an absolute ring fanatic. Day to day I generally wear 5-6 rings and if I don’t I feel naked! I am quite picky with my jewellery because I got a lot of hand me downs from my mum meaning that they were all relatively good quality so now I can’t really bring myself to wear cheap high-street jewellery that tarnishes and breaks so easily. When in town last weekend on Cuba Street (which is kind of like the high street of wellington?) I noticed that a few people have started selling jewellery, hair wraps and dream catchers etc.. So I thought I would go and have a look at their jewellery. Turns out this one woman had these really stunning rings – I literally could have bought them all! In the end I limited myself to one – they cost $20.00. And typical me I can’t remember the stone or what it’s made of, it’s not silver but a metal commonly used in Argentina for jewellery. I am absolutely in love with this ring. The stone is really beautiful and relatively toned down as it’s quite a large piece (in the scale of rings I would say it’s a medium size stone.) The photo of it above is what it looks like when the light catches it usually it looks a khaki green colour with hints of turquoise.
As for the necklaces, I finally managed to get some that a very short and sit around the neckline. I often wear top with a high neckline and thing necklace that are of a similar length look really nice. I also wanted a few necklaces of this style to have under shirt collars so you can just see them peeking out. I picked these up from an opshop, the tags said that the silver one was $4.00 and the beaded one was $3.00 but when I went to pay I was charged $2.00 for each. They are so lovely and I can’t wait to wear them! It’s always really satisfying to get something you have been looking for ages.
