I Spy: Jewelry Edition

So Ashley, over at Little Miss Momma has started this fun series, "I Spy" and I decided to link up.  This week was supposed to be shoes and jewelry, but all I had time to take were jewelry pictures.....warning you, there are a bunch of pictures - jewelry is kind of my thing :)

Bracelet and Watches.  I got this cute holder at Marshalls a while ago.  I have bracelets from Stella & Dot, 31 Bits, Forever 21 and Slightly Askew here.  All of my watches are from the kid's section of Nordstrom (amazing, on-trend watches for $14 - $18) with the exception of the colorful, braided one which is from the clearance section at Target.  It was $2.98 and I get compliments on it every time I wear it.

This necklace is one of my favorites.  I got it from an antique fair years ago.  The woman selling it said it's probably from the 60's.  I paid $3 for it, and she threw in a ton of vintage buttons.  I love it.

This is my {extreme} Allora Handmade obsession, exposed.  Five Allora necklaces, two Allora bracelets.  I also have three pairs of Allora earrings, but those are in another picture.  Jess is opening her shop back up on my birthday.  Coincidence?  I think not.

 My fancier earrings.  All by Stella & Dot.  I got the cute holder at Urban Outfitters (thanks, mom!)

I love this necklace so much.  It's from Anthropologie and I saved up for it.  It was more than I'd normally spend on a necklace, but I love it. 

My everyday earrings, and a few fun rings.  All by AFD Jewelry, with the exception of the last row, which are by Allora Handmade.

This lovely is what holds the majority of my jewelry. I got it at a different antique fair a few years back and I think I paid $8 for it.  I loooooooove it!

The bottom drawer holds some of my more delicate necklaces (mostly by Stella & Dot), a handful of cocktail rings (also S & D), along with my beautiful necklace by The Lovely Letter, a custom necklace I made for myself and my wedding rings.

The custom necklace I made for myself.  I get people requesting one of their own all the time, but the owls are unavailable.

My wedding rings.

One of the middle drawers holds a ton of Stella & Dot bracelets and necklaces.  Anybody want them? Make me an offer or if you make something cool and want to trade let me know. For realsies.

Another middle drawer holds two more fun necklaces.  My California love necklace by Truche and a not-yet-released AFD Jewelry necklace (coming soon!)

So.....I know that's a ton of jewelry, but um.....I didn't even get a chance to photograph my statement necklaces.  Maybe next time.  I'm linking up with Little Miss Momma and would love to know if you do as well!
