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.
