Adorned in Organics

For someone who prefers clean, uncomplicated lines in her wardrobe choices, my jewellery tends to trend towards organic, nature-based designs; things that are rarely uncomplicated, and look like they may still be dripping with primordial ooze, or perhaps have just fluttered down out of the sky to rest upon your earlobe for a breather. 

I am blissfully unaware of my reasons for this. Apparently I lack the depth of insight required to make sense of it, or maybe it's just that I'm not all that interested in finding a reason for everything. Some things just are, and that is fine.  

So speaking of things that are,  here are my top six (random number) favourite organic-inspired pieces that probably get the most play-time out of all of the pieces of jewellery that I own.  Discuss, reply, or just enjoy.  
Hagit Gorali sterling and pearl ring



Stephen Dweck ruby and sterling hoops



Sterling feather bracelet (it was a gift..I wear it so much you can se the wee crack in it).



Sterling and gold-plated leaves necklace (Italian origin, a gift from my husband)



Rivka Friedman sterling and gold-plated earrings.



John Hardy peridot, sterling, and 18k ring

  1. I love it all! I especially love love the Peridot ring. Did you have that specially made? It's so beautiful. :)

    1. That was part of a John Hardy collection a few years (maybe 5?) ago. They made a smaller one (like mine) and a larger one as well, more of a cocktail ring. I think they also came in citrine and garnet...but peridot is my birthstone.

  2. I wouldn't kick any of those pieces out of my jewelry case, and I particularly share your love for leaves. It might be worth tracking down a silversmith to repair the tiny crack in the feather bracelet so it doesn't get any ideas about breaking in half. (Just tell it it's going to the Silver Spa, and it will cave without a fuss.)

    1. You're absolutely right about the bracelet. I am sailing quite close to the wind leaving it like that. I will take your advice and take it to the "spa".

  4. I would love to see a shot of that pearl ring on your finger. Gorgeous, and so unusual!

    1. Funny, I tried to get a good shot of it on my finger, but the limitations of my camera made it quite impossible. And trust me, I don't have the kind of hands you want to see in a close-up anyway. Between the dirt under the nails, the tennis callouses, and the curry stains from my last culinary adventure, that one is best left alone.

    2. Hmm, I tried to add a wry indication that I was looking at my own nails/fingers/hands when I wrote that, and the html sabotaged me!

  5. I'm a bead and bangle kind of girl, but not too much of it. Between four babies and some grandkids pulling at earrings (and then losing the backs to them) I like to keep jewelry small and sparkly. Being somewhat short and round, this is also a better option. I love the peridot piece though, it's just perfect. Do you have a problem with the silver pieces tarnishing since your weather there is notoriously damp? Had the same problem living on the coast of western Washington state and I learned to keep a piece of chalk (like the school kind) in my jewelry box.

    1. I have one of those jewelry preserve type carriers with a bunch of pockets in it that has some sort of special mesh lining that seems to keep things pretty well clean. I still have to rub the tarnish off once in a while, but all in all, it keeps thing spretty hassle-free. I am a huge fam of Precious jewelry cleaner. You can get it on QVC and it is really easy to use.
