‘Tis the Season

It is the season to trot out  jewelry that I’d never wear at any other time of year.  One of my favorites is a silver chain link charm bracelet, loaded with charms that scream Southwest.  The presents are under a decorated saguaro.   The snowmen are wearing cowboy hats, and Santa looks like a pot bellied gold miner from the 1800s.  Ball type ornaments are interspersed between the Santas, snowmen, and cacti.

God forbid that thing ever gets a bad coat of tarnish.  Forget silver polish.  The only way to clean it would be with aluminum, baking soda, and boiling water.

Another one I like is the gold-tone rhinestone Christmas tree brooch my mom gave me years ago.  It’s totally tacky, but fun.
