I've always preferred gold and bronze accessories over silver ones. I'm sharing some of them below. These photos were not taken at the same time nor day. You will notice the difference as some were shot with natural lighting, which I love because it complements the sheen of gold. :) Used different cameras too.


 I've already introduced this before. This is the least used. I guess I am already happy and satisfied 
with the two I wear on my left ring finger for this is the only other ring I own apart from them. :)

Part of my system. These are NOT accessories. They represent life and love. ♥
My wedding band and a ring my mother gifted me in grade school.

Short Story: The ring I got from my mom had to be removed and returned to her on my wedding day because I needed the space for the wedding band. It happened after settling myself in my wedding dress. That moment was unforgettable and sad. All I said to her was: "Ma, please keep." It was so hard to part with because it was my connection with her. She did not respond. There was an awkward silence between us while I saw a bit of loneliness in her eyes. I had a long sad train of thoughts in my head that time. But, one thing I knew was for sure. I would get it back one day. 

So now, my life (ring) protects my love (ring) from falling off. I'm happy that they share the same space. :)

Accessorize earrings. So in love with these! They all look perfect to me. :)

Left: selfmade. Right: bazaar finds. At one point in my life, I got engaged in accessory-making. Bought beads 
and materials from Divisoria and The Bead Shop randomly and transformed my imagination into reality. 
My mom sold some of my creations to her friends and neighbors. :)

Cole Vintage bracelets. It's very rare for me to be awed by set bracelets because I would usually like/use only 
one or 2 out of the set. This one, though, was an exception. I bought it because I adore it's entire feminine appeal, AND, the gold trimmings. :)

I am dreaming of owning bangles but I couldn't find them in sizes that won't fall off of my small wrists/hands. 

These necklaces are from SM Dept Store and are more than 3 years old. The one right above has been worn
only twice because I find it a little difficult to style. I removed one of its 2 layers sometimes. :)

The one at the upper left [shaped into a heart] is self-made. It took me several hours to finish that loop as 
no two connections are the same. I'm happy with how it turned out, like a rosary. 
Lower left is from Accessorize while the other 2 were from bazaars. :)

Now, a sneak peek of the most beautiful accessory I own. I saw this from a blog and instantly fell in love. You may have seen it before, but, for me, it's so beautiful that it deserves its own post. Leaving you hanging so come back for the update. :)

 Are you curious now? Can you guess what's inside? :)
I would love to hear your wild guesses. :)

It's Saturday! :) Weekend again! Partying with children tomorrow. Yipee! :)
