I never really liked heart motifs much. I always thought them too girlie and too needy, as if
women had to wear one to show that they had a lover in their life. Then one Christmas I
spied this one which I wanted to match a party outfit so I asked my sweetheart to buy it
for me.
I am a bit of a magpie when it comes to jewellery. I like sparkly costume jewellery and
most of mine comes from chain stores, craft fairs and even market stalls. A few years
ago I discovered the Pilgrim range which is designed in Denmark and I've managed to
build up a collection of differently pieces. The few pieces of 'real' jewellery which I
have are family heirlooms which belonged to my mother or grandmother but I rarely
wear them as they don't really fit in with my way of dressing.

A leftover from the Thursday challenge but I couldn't decide which I preferred.

Such a pretty piece and so well photographed with the wonderful bokeh in the background.

Not a big fan of heart-shaped things either, but this has a unique, hand-crafted look and beautiful stones. I can definitely see the appeal.

I particularly like the dof in this one .... with the detail in the foreground, as well as the sparkles are the back. Very well done.

A very unique design. The shallow dof works very well with your skillful composition. ~V~
