For the Minimalism Game Day 28, I worked on jewelry. I got rid of 26 pieces of jewelry and two bags to hold jewelry. I did not get rid of any non-costume items, not because I didn’t want to, but because I haven’t figured out how to sell them. So these 26 pieces are all costume items. And most of them I’ve gone years without wearing.
Most people who regularly hang out with me know I rarely wear jewelry. I don’t really like wearing it, and I especially hate large pieces. The only two things I wear every day are my wedding ring and a pair of plain diamond studs. I don’t like wearing earrings that weigh enough that I can feel them in my ears. I really hate wearing things on my wrists. And I don’t like most necklaces, especially larger items, where I feel weighed down. So, why bother keeping things you don’t like and will never use? Every day, when I get my wedding ring out of the jewelry box, I feel guilty to own so many things I never use. Goodbye, guilt!
