This is... my jewellery box

Well, I don't have a jewellery box in the traditional sense I suppose, most of my jewellery is either hanging on the wall in the bedroom, in wall pockets in the bathroom, in their individual boxes in drawers or in a jewellery roll in a drawer. Mmm... not wonder it takes me so long to get dressed in the morning...

I do have one little wooden box that I keep my favourite rings in though. It's a sweet thing that I picked up in a flea market, with you guessed it, a kimono fabric insert. I'm actually starting to get a little embarrassed... people will really start to figure out just how obsessed I am with kimono fabric and Japanese design...


So here it is, full of pieces that I love to wear.

This is a close-up of the contents. Other than the pieces either covered in kimono fabric, embedded with kimono fabric or structured from kimono fabric, many pieces are either silver or white gold, and big and chunky. Just how I like them.
Thank you to the hostess with the mostest, Three Buttons, for this week's theme!
In the next few days, I've got some photo to post of some of the bags in progress and Saturday's festivities! I had a ball, it was a fabulous kimono spotting day! Will tell more soon...

I love your box! As always, we seem to share similar tastes--love the black lacquer with the piece of kimono fabric on top. I myself am also partial to chunky silver. My wedding ring is white gold. No yellow for me thank you very much!

I'm loving all the kimono goodness too.

That pendant you recently made from the silver stuff - also sensational. I'd love to have a crack at that.

I love the silver pieces too, and as for your obsession with kimono fabric? With all those beautiful prints and colours, well who could blame you.

What a great collection of rings. I love the look of those colourful bands that look like they are plastic or resin or something.
