Horn a’ Plenty

Horn Bangles

A couple of weeks ago I was talking with Catherine Huizenga of Mrs. Huizenga about the stuff we collect, the stuff that might not be particularly valuable but we can’t resist.

My list initially included anything Egyptian, anything copper and anything by Buch & Deichmann. She said that she couldn’t resist enamelled jewellery, and I said, oh yeah, add that to the list. The conversation went on like that for a while: Siam sterling, big modernist jewellery, naive depictions of animals, etc., etc, etc.

Today I am here to add horn bangles to the scroll of weakness. Last year I destashed all but three of my faves (and an Hermès link bracelet), but here I am with stacks of bracelets again.I can’t physically fit any more on my arm.
