Do you like retro jewelry? If you do, then you’re in for a treat. I’m going to show you pieces of retro jewelry I found at an estate sale.
I was looking for pieces of jewelry to use for my altered art projects, but after going through them and trying them on, some aren’t as bad as I thought.
Some are actually cute in an ugly sort of way!
My Mom watched some of the videos, and she told me, “You sure got a lot of ugly jewelry, Lynn!”
I laughed. “Yep, I sure did.”
I’m taking a vote to see which piece is the ugliest. Actually, I already tagged one particularly gaudy piece as the booby prize. That one is in Part 5 of the videos, I believe. It’s so strangely ugly, it deserves to have a video made about it all by itself.
Perhaps I’ll do that, make a short video about that one necklace, made out of some hard plastic or resin. I don’t know. It might make a good writing prompt, too, for anyone who wants to work on a creative writing piece.
Bangles bangles bo bangles
Banana-fana fo fangles
Me my mo mangles
So, dear peeps, what’s the verdict? Good taste? Bad taste? Do you think one of these pieces qualifies for an “Ugly” vote?
Would you wear any of these? I’m not talking about for Halloween. I mean for reals. I’d say the bangles are decent and practical and light weight, so they’d be comfortable to wear, except for three of them, which are too heavy for me.
I kind of like the yellow necklace pictured at the top of the post. Just need to find the right top or dress to wear it with. Not sure I could find earrings to match, though.
That concludes my Retro Jewelry Haul Part 1. I hope you found it entertaining.
What are your thoughts? Do you like retro jewelry? Men, would you want to give your wife, mother, daughter, or annoying coworker any of these pieces? Do you prefer expensive jewelry?
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
