Some Jewelry

Maybe you have noticed the jewelry I wear in some of my blog posts.  I don't know, maybe no one reads blogs anymore.  But, I've had these photos of some of my favorite Native Clutter jewelry for a long time, meaning to tell you guys about it.

This jewelry obsession is something I never would've seen coming.  I have always leaned toward the tomboyish side of things.  I associated jewelry with the awful stuff girls bought at Claire's Boutique in the eighties.  The only jewelry I ever wore were things from my grandmother and some turquoise and leather pendant necklaces I made from a couple of keychains.  But those were the adornment I liked: vintage pieces and natural rocks.




I think I first heard of Native Clutter from Stephanie's maker's blog. I was blown away by every thing in her shop.  Every thing.  There are all types of stones, geometric shapes, and vintage fittings.  There is nothing she designs that I wouldn't wear, even if I'm just hanging around the house.

I get compliments on them all of the time- from men and women.  Yesterday it was a boy working at Starbucks.  So, if you happened to notice them in lots of my photos, it's because I wear them all of the time.



For Christmas my husband asked Stephanie if she'd make a custom design for me and this necklace and earring set is what she created.  I was speechless.  I also couldn't believe he heard all of my hinting.



So, yeah, I've amassed a collection over the last few years.  When I have extra cash that I might once have spent on a piece of clothing, I buy this stuff instead- this, books, music, and yarn.



Oh look, here's more photos of me looking incredibly solemn in my jewelry and finished knits.





Below are some functional bracelets that I also love to wear wear.   If you're a knitter, you've already seen them.  I got my Wrist Ruler from Tolt Yarn and Wool.  I wear it daily and use it constantly to make sure my gauge isn't going haywire.

The stitch marker bracelet is from Magpie Fibers.  They have some other styles that I like too, but this one was my favorite.
