five beautiful things

 Marc by Marc Jacobs bangle, vintage Monet earrings, vintage diamonte brooch, vintage YSL butterfly necklace, vintage Butler and Wilson snake necklace

This post was inspired by MJs favourite things, Eleanor's Crowning Jewels, and the fact that it's the first day of the month so I can now upload new photos to flickr (I had used up my March allowance!). MJ and Eleanor both got me thinking about jewellary and my favourite things, so naturally I ended up taking photos of my five favourite pieces of jewellary at the moment! What jewellary do you find yourself wearing all the time? And what do you keep for special occaisions? The Butterfly necklace rarely comes out but the bangle and the arrings get worn several times a week.

p.s. the book is Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger!

Wow gorgeous!! I have to say that jewellery is one area of my appearance I put no effort into. I really must. I'd love to know how it feels to wear something that's really valuable, or some really awesome vintage necklace or something. Like your snake one - AMAZING!
Lovely post! ♥

I love these 5 top favourite things posts! I've got to do one myself sometime.

I absolutely love your snake necklace! It's so unique.

I have this beaded green bracelet I keep wearing and this feather gold necklace. I don't have a lot of jewellery I do wear often though.
