This week’s Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge was ‘A Touch of History’ – wearing the oldest thing in your wardrobe. I pulled out a little box from where it’s been hiding for a few years – a small collection of vintage jewellery that was left to me by my great-aunt. I’ve never worn any of it – largely due to being worried I’d lose it. But you know what? If you don’t use something pretty, what’s the point of having it??
So this outfit came together a) so that it would go with this necklace, and b) so that it would fit over the bump.
I like this necklace. I have no idea of it’s history, which is a shame. Perhaps art deco era? Does anyone who knows better than me care to hazard a guess? The stone beads are individually knotted. One of my colleagues thinks it’s moss agate. (She’s more likely to know than I am. To me, they’re pretty stone beads. Nice and heavy and cool to the touch.)
