“When I picture my mom, I see her covered in her favorite jewelry. On any given day, she can be found wearing rings on every finger and bracelets all the way up both arms. She collects special pieces that hold meaning to her, and has an amazing sensibility in putting them all together. She has always referred to us as ‘magpie,’ because we collect important objects that we feel connected to, like vintage jewelry and trinkets. We feel better surrounded by things that we love.
I’ve always worn hoop earrings, and so has my sister. I think it’s because we saw our mom wearing them. She has this one pair of hoop earrings that I’ve -always- coveted ever since I can remember — these tiny, vintage silver hoops with blue gems lining them. I was too afraid to ask to borrow them until recently and still felt like I was borrowing the Queen’s jewels.” Click the link in bio for more on our love of hoops (and the women who wear them) Photographed by @cassidyturner #R29Reads
