kate spade charm braceletWhat is it about charm bracelets? I’ve been fascinated by them for years, ever since I found my mom’s own bracelet from the ’60s. It was a great chunky gold bracelet with so many good charms, like a scottie dog, the state of Indiana, and a sparkly letter M for Mary. The clasp was broken though, so I never wore the bracelet. Instead I just jealously hoarded it in my room.

My husband has apparently taken note of my charm bracelet obsession, because this year he gifted me one of my own. The charms are from Kate Spade, and I think it’s a brilliant intro on their part. I am part of the Pokemon generation, so I WILL collect them all. Bravo, Kate Spade, bravo; or as they say on the internet, shut up and take my money.

I have a very small collection of fine jewelry, mostly pearls and silver, along with my engagement ring. If I ever expand my collection, I’d like to invest in a proper jewelry box.

For now I’ll continue using the small enamel box my husband got me from Jonathan Adler. But someday!

bauble basics

I used to store my costume jewelry on a tray, which resulted in lots of dusty and oxidized pieces. So I switched to a hanging organizer.

I’m a convert for a few reasons. I can see everything at a glance, instead of digging through my tray. Earrings stay together, finally. And! No dust!

Stay tuned tomorrow for part two!
