Here's the new pewter-looking braided rope bracelet, worn with some companions. The bracelet with the silver horn bead is almost hidden underneath the new bracelet, (from a boot sale in Brighton) and on the other side of it, a bead bracelet I made in jewellery class, and a silver blue/green stones bracelet I got in Greece. Other than the bracelet from Greece, the rest cost about £2. I can't remember how much the Greek bracelet was.
I'm discovering that an armload of bangles and bracelets is instant glamour, and sometimes for a ridiculous amount of money. One bracelet is nice, but 4 says. "get a load of THIS!" To think I used to be shy about wearing clothes that made people look twice.
Do I worry that I'm OTT? (That's over-the-top, if you're not familiar with this expression). As my friend Erica says about wearing what you want and being comfortable in your choices: "Suits the wearer, bugger the starer." As long as you please yourself, you're ahead of the game!
