Totally addicted to...

Buying estate jewellery!

Here are some my purchases...

I love this ring... I wear it pretty much every day.  It is huge and beautiful!  The stone changes colour in different light.
My favourite bracelet... It's coloured foil placed under glass... has a name, like 'diocratic glass' or something... for the life of me it's escaped my brain.
Art Deco style bangle - I LOVE ART DECO!
Red Lucite Elephant pendant - a new purchase.
One of my favourite Art Deco Fob braclets.  It's quite heavy... but stunningly beautiful!
It has a jade scarab beetle design on the end.  Magnificent!
I just liked the style of this brooch... I actually hang it on a chain around my neck.
Art Deco marquiste ring
Modernist Danish pendant
Me... made from Pewter.  haha  I actually have a man version of this one too.  Yes!  I'm serious.  It has a penis.
I love Owls!  Especially Mod style.
Newest addition... leaving in the post to its new home today.
Same with this little beauty. 

Hi, I'm Karls!  And I'm a jewellery junkie.

LOVE the first ring!!! Is that an amethyst??? That's my birthstone! Never bought estate jewelry. Where does one find these kind of things? Estate sales? Like garage sales??? I must know!

I'm with bananas . . . that first ring is gorgeous!

Wow - I'm a jewellery junky too but don't have anywhere near the amazingness that is your collection. Jealous!

Just found your blog and am thrilled that someone else also found the need to beseech Tamasin to wear a frickin' bra and tie back her hair {had no idea who her brother was - shows me I was just too distracted by the hair and boobs thing!}

I'm just going to say, I'm a little sad you didn't respond with my whole visiting you in person thing with an immediate invitation... sigh. hahaha
Also, I love that ring.

Brown Girl said...

stopping over from SITS!

love love LOVE the first ring, the fob bracelet, and the owl pendant! i'm so jealous i can barely see straight!

Cathy said...

You need to do one of two things.
1-Send all of that jewelry to me now.
2-Tell me when/where/how I can find similar items.

I love every single piece.

w said...

stopping by from sits.

foxy said...

Wow - excellent pieces!

HeatherLynn said...

well i've been to plenty of estate auctions and I can tell you, they don't have any treasures quite like these!

I've gotten tons of old books (which i collect)....but now, even those gems don't seem as fantastic as these finds!

so jealous right about now...first you get a kayak, and now this!

Oh, girl, I'm going to have to challenge you to a arm wrestling match soon! ;)

Hi my name is Amy, and I am totally not! **sigh...I NEED JEWLERY!! Not expensive mind you, just a few cool pieces that I can mix and match!

Must work on collecting more jewlery!

Also? That boobie necklace is the shit!!!

WhisperingWriter said...

So pretty!

My dad used to make stuff like some of that. I wish he still would but no :( He says he's done.

pretty*pink*rat said...

Too cool! Loving the first ring especially, I'd wear it everyday too!

Kelly at Home said...

Beautiful finds, Karly! I just found ya through SITS. :o) That owl is divine...too adorable! I wanted to write a pun involving hoot, but I'll try and control myself, LOL!

Happy weekend!

Oughta Say No said...

Cute stuff! I love the owl necklace.

I'm totally devastated because I lost my fave necklace two weeks ago and it's not turning up anywhere. :(

BLOGitse said...

That ring is gorgeous! You've totally inspired me to hit up estate sales!

Just loved this post... coming from SITS. Random, but are you going to Bloggy Boot Camp in Baltimore?

North West London Girl said...

Hello,I found you on the wonderful SITS. I love the owl necklace, I have a thing for owls. Have a super Sunday.

North West London Girl said...

Forgot to say "Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest"..

Jenni said...

Oo! LOVE them! My mom has a ring very similar to the first picture....I love finding great jewelry like these...

MODG said...

very Vampire Diaries.

gina said...

the purple stone pieces are lovely!! And the story about the pewter pendants are a bit bizarre. Way cooler than buying a commercial piece of mass produced jewelry. Kind of like designing your own prm dress- now one is going to have the same one as you!

mooneyequalsmc2 said...

Wow, some unique pieces there! I love estate jewelry too because they just do not make creative stuff like that any longer.

I share your love!

Stopping over from SITS!

Crystal said...

JDaniel4's Mom said...

That owl is so freaking cute! I wanna steal it!

Acting Balanced Mom said...

stopping by from SITS - my husband has put a moratorium on me buying more jewelry... your collection is great!

tristan said...

WOW! You have definitely found some beautiful pieces of jewelry! I don't wear any jewelry, really. But if I could find stuff like this I would definitely start!
