I’m not one of these girls who can travel light.  I live by 2 mottos, 1 brought to me by the Girl Guide; “Always be Prepared”.  & the other brought to me by Rachel Zoe ; “You can never have enough Options. Options, Options Options”.  Sadly when a backpack gets involved I must break rank from Zoe and downsize.

My jewellery edit was far more difficult than the slicing and dicing of my holiday wardrobe.  Version 1 consisted of 8 necklaces, a plethora rings and a few bracelets.  I know, I know, way too much.  & so the slicing started.

These two pieces sadly didn’t make the cut, but I feel like they need a little spotlight of love and appreciation

On to the pieces which will be coming with me.

The Point Five Piece 

This piece is great for when down sizing calls.  0.5 of this piece is a necklace and the other .5 of it is a bracelet.  Confused? Basically this piece can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet.


Also due to the pliable nature of the piece, it can be styled and restyled in numerous ways

The 2 in 1 Piece.

Another great way to save space and lighten the load is to take  1 necklace and several charms than way you can switch them over as you go along.

The final necklaces which survived the chop were these summery numbers


The only thing I couldn’t cut back on was rings ….


I tried, I promise


To be fair once I stack them all up, that little bag will empty half the time




Edit completed. I  feel some what naked in the jewel sense.  Though I must remember it is for the greater good.  For the more space I leave with, the more space I will have for all the new treasures I will find.
