They say that Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery told the story of her life and the historic auction of her collection made over £100 million.
I don't have a lot of jewellery and certainly nothing that Cash for Gold would be very interested in, as what I do have, is mainly costume jewellery. However it did get me thinking what my jewellery would say about my life. It hasn't been particularly scandalous like Liz's often was, but there are pieces that say something about me.
There's these, of course:-
but they are really a bit too obvious.
This locket may not look like much, but I had it when I first became a Mom and there is a baby picture of each of my two boys in either half.
This ring reminds me of my Auntie Mary who emigrated to Canada and reminds me I still have family in British Columbia. I might get to go there one day, but I often wonder what it's like.
I mentioned my grandparents and the parts they played in the war during a previous post, but this pin is one my Grandfather gave my Nanna before he left the country. It says " The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from Another". He did just that.
Naturally, there had to be a cross in there somewhere aswell, and I have quite a few to choose from. This one is a cross that I made myself at a lovely workshop day held at my Church where Norma from the Silver Fish Company gave us a brief lesson and let us loose. It was a fabulous day of fun, laughter and fellowship and this was my result.
While I was mooching through my bits and pieces, I also came across this lovely jewellery box. Can you guess what's in it?
I think not!!
Am I the only odd and slightly gruesome Mommy who has kept all her Son's teeth? Ssshh, No. 2 Son is still receiving visits from the tooth fairy!!
What does your jewellery say about your life?
