A necklace a day

Did you read my obsessions post? If you did, you know that jewelry is one of them. I don't even know how many pairs of earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces I have. My redeeming quality? I wear my jewelry! It doesn't matter if it is silver or pearls or gold...I don't save it for a "special" occasion.

I decided that from today forward I will wear a different necklace each day and keep track of them until I've worn every single one at least once!

Pearls are from my parents; my mom said every girl needs a real strand of pearls. Stacey helped find the black beaded necklace. The turquoise necklace I bought in Dallas. The red coral strand necklace is my latest purchase.

I designed the 1st & 3rd necklaces while visiting Anna in IA. The 2nd one is my daintiest. The 4th & 5th are gifts from Jenny for '07 & '08. The 2nd from the right is an intricate gold necklace from my grandparents. The last one is Elena's.

These two necklaces I bought on my Paris trip in a tobacco store! I saw them in the store's window and had to have them! The black one reverses to brushed silver tone and the red one reverses to brushed gold tone.

The two "outside" necklaces are from one of my favorite places: Ann Taylor Loft. The one in the middle is a gift from Jenn. Over the last few weeks, I have worn it at least 10 times! LOVE it!

So you see, every necklace carries a special meaning. But of course this is not a complete list! :)

27 is nothing! That doesn't even include some other random necklaces and chains I have. Not to mention the pendants...I must have at least 15!

*** OMG...27 necklaces...that's like 27 Dresses...wonder if it means anything? :)
