My jewellery favourites change from time to time, but I thought I'd share some constants with you. My preferred metal is silver, although I do have some gold rings; it's the silver ones I wear most, though, but not in the garden etc for fear of losing/catching etc. The necklace in the picture is one I made up for myself, and doesn't come off for the moment; I might ring the changes with different attachments, but these are what are on it just now. The little green earrings are one of the sea glass pairs I made a while back, the pentacle is one of a pair, and the peace symbol I've had for some 20 years or so now; it gets swapped about with other earrings, on to chains, etc as I feel the mood take me. The silver Celtic band was actually bought on e-bay, but is my favourite ring of all, it's special, with a lovely colour and feel to it.
I think that jewellery worn constantly and often picks up from you, and becomes imbued with a sense of self. I have grown quite attached to various bits over the years for this reason and there are some pieces I will never part with.
