Some thoughts on jewellery.

​Yeah.. Thoughts. What is jewellery? decoration? elongation of the personality? cultural expression? an ironic comment? lack of interesting clothes? Obviously it can be a bit of everything.

For the past two years or so, I’ve taken a “step back” from wearing decorative metal. The choice has usually been to simply wear the black Skagen (pictured below in the middle) watch because it goes with everything. But I’m always astonished by the sight of others wearing jewellery.

Example; Man Repeller with her arm parties or Isabella’s gorgeous finger-ring-thing or the extravagant Iris Apfel for that matter.! But I guess I’m more simplistic in my choices at the moment. At least with the amount of accessories – I still dig the statement pieces (like the giant keyring from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collab).

Maybe the reason for my lack of updating the jewellery-box is due to very expensive taste (no not at all typical for a lady. ) ?

​Anyways, I am currently searching the web for pretty (woman? no ida please no strange associations in the middle of a post) pieces and will share these in a string of consciousness and necklaces-and-more-thoughts.

Starting with the necklace by Proenza Schouler. I find it intriguing in a very undefinable way… it’s a little hippie, a little alternative, a little climbing-ropey (!?) yet I could see it working fantastic with a simple styling (white/grey t-shirt, or shirt) 

How do you like it? And what are you more into at the moment? Necklace, earrings, bracelets, rings or all of it (but at the same time? or seperately?)
