Beads

I love the colors and shapes of these beads. They were sold at the Union Square street fair for only $20 a piece so I doubt the turquoises are real.

So do you wear any jewelry?

Vibrant color always attracts my eye, too.

I mostly wear just earrings, but I occasionally wear a bracelet. These are a great color, and would be right up my alley!

The shape and colors are attractive thought I prefer variegated colors.

They look edible somehow.

I wear only a small watch.

They sure make for a colorful photo!
I don't wear a lot of jewelry. Generally just a pair of earrings.

That's quite an attractive display. You captured it nicely. I rarely wear jewelry.

Earrings are my favourite type of jewelleries.

Did you visit Central Market in KL during your last visit to Malaysia? There are lotsa unique jewelleries sold there.

Well, like everyone else....love the colors but the shapes are varied as well. These appear to be handmade to me. I mostly year my wedding ring and a cocktail ring and occasionally earrings.

I love your photo. Nicely done. I haven't worn a watch for about 15 years. I gain 3 hours a day when I stopped wearing one. I have two pair of earrings I wear when getting dressed up and even pared my wedding rings down to just the gold band. Just don't like things hanging on me. And yet I love jewelry on other people. I can't wear hats either. Somethings goin'
on here.
Have a great week.

What a great photo, love the colours and the textures and the fun shapes. I like wearing dangly earrings, but didnt get my ears pierced until 10 years ago... before that I was chicken!!!

Even though I never wear necklaces, I probably couldnt walk by this booth without buying one of those!

I only wear earring and my college ring.

20 USD a piece? Well, it's true that the dollar is fast depreciating... but inflation doesn't need to get so high... ;))

So beautiful those beads, Ming! Love the color and shapes too!

I like principally silver jewelry and amber beads.

I wear very little jewelry. It has been a big adjustment getting used to wearing a wedding ring..it still feels like there's something foreign on my hand.

I wouldn't know which to choose. They are all so colorful. Most jewelry is too clunky for my taste, and I never even got my ears pierced.

In my rocker years (80s-90s) i wore many bracelets, necklaces, rings and metal bling. Now I just wear my wedding band, two earrings and an occasional necklace :)

Thinking Fool said...

My mom would LOVE those!

I wear a watch... sometimes. Other than that, I'm jewelry-less, though I will wear a wedding ring when (if?) I get married.

I thought $20 for a piece is expensive. Maybe I'm just not a jewelery person.

Who cares? Chuncky, bold cheap jewelry makes much more of a statement than any diamonds. They have personality!

Ah, can't believe I missed those strands. I so want to get back to beading this summer.

And can you believe it is street fair season again so soon????

I must have missed that vendor.

Big, colorful beads are in this season. I'll have to check out the market next weekend.

Those round ones remind me M&Ms!

sometimes cuff links

I love beaded necklaces, and these are pretty! You should come to the Philippines one of these days. You'll get at least four for your $20!
