This weekend I attended a holiday event and — despite purchasing some costume jewelry to match my gown — was not happy with my choice. So I started sorting through the necklaces and earrings that I’ve purchased over the years. I was kind of shocked at the amount of jewelry I’ve accumulated.
Before anyone tries to rob my house, let me say that I never pay more than $20 for a necklace or earrings. Nor do I have any family heirlooms in my collection. Unfortunately, I even lost my wedding rings a few years ago.
What I did realize was that jewelry goes out of style. And, when I came across this blog post about using jewelry to make a beautiful holiday wreath, I thought it was a wonderful idea. It would be a great Thanksgiving project for those of us who will not be going near a mall over Thanksgiving weekend!
