I like this photo because you can also see me taking it. Gold necklaces, cloak clasps, and bracelets from the Iron Age.
Some amazing Torques from Iron age Europe, most hoard recoveries. I like the last ones in particular, they look like they might make for some very nice candlesticks.
Silver from the same time and place. This reminds me of my preferences in jewelry when I was around 10.
Amazing gold cloak, I kept the bottom of the image in so you could see someone wearing it. I would imagine it was worn over a cloak.
More amazing gold jewelry, the ancients sure loved their gold.
Some pretty beaded items from the Egyptian collection.
I was so inspired by my trip that on the walk back to the tube after tea that afternoon I just might have spotted a little open air vintage market. And I just might have wandered in and found a rather chic 1960s mod almost Egyptian inspired Lucite necklace.
I also went through my collection to select a few that reminded me of my BM visit.
Fake gold costume jewelry from the 1950s earrings and broach (earrings used to be twist clips I replaced with hooks)
Lapiz necklace, gift from my Grandmother, possibly from the 1920s.
Beaded necklace from the 1980s.
