It’s been a super busy week. Good stuff, bad stuff, work stuff. But lots and lots of stuff. Because I am aging, my body requires more maintenance, which is expensive but worth it. It doesn’t leave much money for going on treasure hunts. But I go anyway.
For example, I stopped in at various Value Villages in between appointments. That’s where I found the Glen Yank style aluminum bangle pictured up top. And this somewhat damaged but still darling 1860s era bracelet. I think I’ve only found a piece of jewelry this old once before (though I did find a book from the 1600s on the sidewalk).
I don’t know why I’m so into bracelets at the moment.n Maybe I reached a certain level of saturation with rings, necklaces and watches. And I don’t even wear the ones I buy. I just like to style them and take photos of them.
The wrist candy pictured above and below were found in a dusty old corner shop in the Annex. They have an endless supply of 1970s jewellery (it’s the same place where I found a stash of Rafael Alfandry pieces ages ago). This time I discovered some hinged brass bracelets and a seagull cuff made from a hammered spoon.
