My mother having been a jeweler for most of my childhood, I pretty much grew up around lots of fancy jewelry. For some reason though, it seems that being constantly around something makes it entirely uninteresting, thus I've just never really cared much for it. Well until now that is. I suddenly have a new found fascination, whether this comes from the fact that my mother no longer works in the jewelry business or because I have realized that more "classic" pieces just aren't really to my taste. Either way, I may actually start accessorizing with jewelry in the very near future.
