I love the costume jewellery I have collected over the years. I never spend much and can source it through Charity shops, Antique centres and Fairs.
My latest acquisitions are Art Deco both Bakelite which was all the fashion in those times. One is a a predominately purple butterfly brooch which DH is giving me later this month for my birthday. The other is what you would call a statement piece with black and white beads the shape of tubular pasta and then at the base a black and white bird. Now it isn’t to everyone’s taste, but I love it.
I notice Prue Leith on Bake Off wears statement jewellery but hers is pricey I would think.
Do you have any favourite jewellery you like to wear ?
