The Twelve Days of Christmas: The earrings series, day 11

IMG_1148

Almost there! While looking forward to Christmas I’m looking a long way back in time today with this colourful and quirky pair. There is something I find very appealing about the smooth glass balls combined with the angular, almost sci fi ‘leggy’ metal drops. They are whimsical to wear because they jingle as I move my head. I bought these in the night market in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand on my first solo long haul trip. A hasty calculation reveals this was almost 30 years ago! So these earrings have been with me a very long time. I have been neglecting them as it feels like many a year since I gave them an airing. Apart from a lost ‘leg’ on the right hand one they have stood the test of time pretty well.
