My jewelry collection

Please don't go by the name. I don't have a huge collection, or I buy jewelry very often. Rather, I buy very rarely buy junkie, though I love them a lot. Mr. Man always ready to buy me all kind of fashionable dresses, but whenever I go to jewelry section he always makes face. I cannot make him understand that I need right kind of accessories. 

This jewelry holder is made by Mr. Man
Few of the bangle pieces

Anyway, I won't only balm him, I also don't want to spend much money on that. I only buy those jewelries which I cannot make myself.

This is a gift from a dear friend

 I don't buy any bead jewelry, I always make myself.

All my pearl collection

These are all gifts from my dear sister

This is a gift from coworkers on my wedding

My love for jewelries began since I was a little girl, though I never got much thing. Anyway, when I grew up I started buying for myself a lot. When I was working in India, I used to travel by train a long distance to reach my office. In India, hawkers usually sell goods in local trains.

This one I bought from Hawaii, but I never wear it.
Few of the many pieces I made 

This is know as Dokra Art. The pendants and the earrings are made of brass.
It is a very famous art work from West Bengal, the state of India from where I am.

This is terra-cotta jewelry, another famous art work from West Bengal. 

 The jewelry sellers usually sell beautiful and latest jewelry in trains, in ver less prices. I used to buy a little jewelry almost every week. Once I bought 4-5 rings, and put them altogether in my fingers, except the little one. My manager asked me Why I left the little fingers. Actually my fingers are very thin, so, it's difficult to find rings, and for the little fingers it is next to impossible to find ring.

Few of the pieces gifted by my sweet sister-in-laws

My one and only one statement necklace

Little by little I collected a huge about of jewelries, but when I came back to my home town for my wedding, I distributed all my collection among my co-workers. So, I didn't have much in my hand when I came to the USA. Then again little by little I collected. My friends also gifted me many jewelries. When I distributed them to my co-workers I kept few of them. Among those are there even almost 20 years old. Those I'm not going to give to anyone. 

This is another gift from a friend

Nice pieces!! I have a pretty big collection of stuff I've made. Like you, I only buy stuff that I can't make on my own. I got a lot of use out of what I made when I worked but now I rarely wear anything cause I am home most of the time or just out doing errands.
