Show and Share Thursday: Spangles, Dangles, and Jangles

Since then, I've purposely re-arranged my sparkly stuff each time we've moved to see if I can accommodate any new pieces when they catch my eye.
Here are some of my favorite "teacher" pieces. I wear them all regularly during the appropriate holiday season, and the teacher watch at all parent teacher conferences. For Halloween and Thanksgiving, it's all about the brooches:

Students always love to examine the jewelry I wear: it sparkles, it moves, and some of it even makes the best little tink-tink-tink noises!
