Me and My Blings :)

I love shiny stuff. Even as a kid, I loved to keep flashy cards and shiny wrappers, put them into a shoe-box for later observation. Pack rat? Hoarding dragon? I'll go for the second title :)

Once upon a time, I bought a platinum plated choker and wore it everyday. I never took it off. My late father, who was a real old-school guy was visibly unhappy with this as he believed that necklaces were for girls, not boys. But I continued wearing the shiny ornament, watching his discomfort, and and thanking people who complimented on my choker's 'shiny-ness'.

But one day, my father asked me to sit in front of him and asked me to take the choker off. I was waiting for the moment for a very long time, wondering when he was going to stop this evil son of his. I took it off without a fuss and put the choker in a box.

The thing rusted within a week. I am not superstitious, as I believe the oils from my skin had maintained the metal from corrosion.

After my father death, I began to wear an assortment of metals and crystals. I love stainless steel ornaments as they are easy to clean and will never rust. I am wearing a steel choker now (to my mom's chagrin), the more expensive one of course.

Silver does not go well with my skin as it tarnish in a few hours upon contact. I am the living example that the connection of silver and evil creatures is no exaggeration. :D

No gold because muslim men are forbidden to wear gold ornaments. I don't like the colour yellow anyway.

I have my favourite metal choker. And I think I had enough crystal bangles and rings for now. But I can never know if what flashy item will catch my eyes next.  :)

Don't start piercing things and having studs and things like that - nasty!

How long ago did your father pass away? I like the story of him sitting you down and asking you to remove the choker. My son lives in Hawaii and he wears beads even to work. Interesting the things associated with jewelry in different cultures. I know lots of people who cannot wear silver so stainless steel is a good alternative.

Rock Chef; Not me. Though I had thoughts of having my ear pierced a long time ago :P

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

TechnoBabe; Beads? Wooden, stone, crystal or synthetic? Beads are so... hippie for me. I like my accessories to scream, yeah, mine is more expensive than yours, even though yes, yours might be shinier. :P
I rarely talk about my dad, but I will tell some of his stories soon.
