Recently I have been trying to reduce the amount of clutter in my life. I think this is a particularly hard task for a writer who also happens to love books! My library will be the last area I will attempt to de-clutter, if I ever do go that far in this endeavor.
While going through some boxes I had put away (and I have not looked in those boxes in years!) I found two pieces of jewelry that my grandmother had given me during my teenage years. Back then I was a science fiction/fantasy fan and she thought I would like these two pieces she found in an antique store.
They are costume vintage pieces, but they are beautiful. I wore them as a teenager and then, as my tastes changed, I packed them away. Now I think they will add just the right Neo-Victorian touch to a steampunk outfit.
Let me know what you think!
