i heart etsy wednesday

Costume jewelry. My grandmother recently passed away. She was raised on a farm in Oklahoma along with 11 brothers and sisters. In the 40s, she and her sister decided to move to Oakland, California where she eventually met and married my Grandfather.

She had a love for costume jewelry. I have fond memories of playing 'dress-up' with huge clip on earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Her jewelry box and dresser were always overflowing with baubles. She loved when I showed an interest in her jewelry. Not because I was sort-of a tomboy, but because she liked to share her love of jewelry with her only granddaughter.

Here are some etsy jewelry finds in honor of my loving grandmother who is dearly missed.

01. A very elegant, snazzy brooch

02. Loving this art deco bracelet

03. There's nothing that says dress-up like a pair of clip-on earrings

04. Some faux pearls

05. What a hoot this little guy is

06. This green peridot cluster ring somehow looks delicious and refreshing . . like a green apple

07. I'd like to store it all in this little vintage jewelry box

I think I'll try and wear more jewelry. It makes me feel purdy.

love my grandma

love my camio
