Back here I posted about my earring collection built up over the last 55 years and I showed you the silver Georg Jensen pair I bought in Ilkley. After Christmas the jewellers had another pair of smaller chunkier silver hoops in the sale, with a very good reduction. I have been back regularly to stand at the window and stare I rather wish someone will buy them so I can stop torturing myself, yes I can afford them but I don’t need them is my mantra.
I thought I preferred hoops, I have a lot, but now I am liking simple studs. I acquired 12 more pairs from the advent calendar MrFF bought me for Christmas. They were a pain to store, tiny and always mixed up, so I went online for a storage solution. Here it is
The perspex stand cost less than £2, it took some time to pair and fix them all but my goodness I can at a glance make my choice for the day, it will be easy to transport to Italy and best of all it’s a visible reminder that I do not need any more earrings even if there is space for a few more pairs. Won’t stop me looking in the jewellers window though, I may be there tomorrow.
