What do these two ladies have in common? They're both part of a project I'm working on right now and, they're both wearing really cool, Victorian jewelry. Their jewelry speaks to the viewer and reveals a little bit about each woman's personality.
Lady number one, on top, has a big pocket watch attached to a chain and tucked into her waistband. No small, dainty watch for her! She's also wearing some sort of large, funky brooch, although, you can't see it well. It's on her left shoulder. She looks quite confident wearing these large pieces. This photo was a bit worn when I got it and, for some reason, the woman's eyes were scratched off and are white. To me, she looks like she could have supernatural powers with those eyes!
Look at the woman in the bottom picture. I love that she has not just one but two large crosses around her neck. She's also wearing some kind of large brooch. I really wonder what this woman's life was like but I think the crosses are telling. Obviously, she was a Christian and must have had a strong love for God. She made a strong personal statement with the pieces she chose to wear.
A woman's jewelry can say so much about her! What does yours say?
