When I started adding tags to this blog, I didn't think to add a jewelry/jewellery tag because I don't think about my jewelry very much; it takes too much effort (which I have now added). But recently I've noticed that sometimes I do love an accessory and that's when it has that one quality that every woman wants in a man: a GSOH. I like my jewelry to have a good sense of humour.
My most recent accessories acquisition was a little bit of costume jewelry, which I got with some birthday gift vouchers.
It's plastic, it's bright and in-your-face and look! it's even laughing!
However some people might say that funny jewelry should only be costume jewelry, and it should only ever be inexpensive because after a while, the joke gets old. I disagree; take for example Wendy Brandes' (writer of blog with GSOH) Onyx Skull Ring. Normally I take Holly Golightly's advice that 'it would be tacky to wear diamonds before I’m 40'. But the morbid humour of a luxurious skull ring means I love, love, love it and with the subtle detail I don't think I'd throw it away.
Plus, the one accessory I wear almost day in, day out (other than my lovely oversized watch) is my joker necklace. An eagle-eyed reader may have noticed it featuring in one or two of my posts, so you can't deny it's not versatile. The features of his face are so delicate that my rubbish camera couldn't pick them up; the impish grin, flower in the cocked hat and sticky out ears, which may be why he works with absolutely any outfit. But my joker's a lot less dull than the anchor or heart I could have chosen and he's got a great sense of humour.
