The girls and I bling in the season

I went to my first Lori Bonn jewelry friends and family sale last year with my girlfriends. I had declared myself Not Much of a Jewelry Person and was content to tag along for the company involved and dinner that followed. But I bought a ring. And so this year I attended the sale much more gamely, now as Somewhat of a Jewelry Person.

This time I knew what to do. With champagne flute in hand, I immediately picked up my little velvet tray and swiftly cased the room, selecting everything I might possibly want and working down from there.

My girlfriend Diana, an experienced jewelry shopper, chose these lovely earrings.

And this necklace and pendant combination, which I must note I selected from their "create your own necklace" collection.

This was featured on my little velvet tray until it occurred to me that I rarely wear necklaces other than this locket of Sophie.

I did buy this new chain for it though.

And it also occurred to me that I would  like this bracelet,
which I could not have in addition to the necklace. So you can see why I'm feeling a little better, right? Fa-la-la-la-la.

Beautiful pieces! Is that a home business company? I've never heard of them but I like the pieces you picked AND I like your gf's earrings.
