Mexican Earrings: A Collection

I have collections of various things: art, shoes, buttons, books. There is one collection I have, though, that I wish to share. I have quite a collection of Mexican earrings. This collection happened by accident and I barely realized that my collection is, well, wonderful. I know it's self indulgent, let me toot my own horn here, my collection is something I only recently learned to admire. So I am sharing it with you, hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do.

These were my first real expensive pair and I only wear them on days when I feel ultra happy or I am going to a fancy party.

These I wear daily, which is why they are tarnishing at the tops. I love them and they have panels that move when I walk or turn my head. They are my super favorite of all time.

I like to wear these with the ones above. Two crescents look real good together.

These were a fairly recent purchase, I like them because they are real long and they dangle very nicely.

I just got these a week ago. I love them. They are of the newer style and the bronze pearls make them all fancy shmancy.

These are from Peru, they aren't quite like the ones above, but they are just as fun to wear.

Now if only I could figure out how to keep the tarnish at bay...
