I have big mad love for all manner of accessories but I go through definite phases - in my early teenage years I was all about the Pat Butcher ear-rings, and the bigger the better. In my grunge days I layered on the necklaces - well, chokers, crosses and beads - like nobodies business and I went through a phase of piling on so many bangles it was kinda tricky trying to lift my arms.

These days, I'm all about the finger candy and rely heavily on rings to add a touch of glamour or interest to my everyday style.
I guess I'm quite traditional in my tastes - there are no upper or double-finger rings in my collection - but I like everything from massive cocktail rings to tiny delicate pieces. I buy everywhere from Net-A-Porter to Penneys and my very favourites were gifts from the people I love - the YSL Artsy ring from family, the pearl from my mum, the Astley Clarke evil eye from my godson (who clearly reads my blog; he's a very early developer!), and of course, I love my wedding and engagement rings best of all.
My jewellery collection tends to be in a bit of a muddle but my rings at least are nicely organised and displayed, thanks to this ASOS Stag jewellery holder ring dish - picked up after I read Leanne Woodfull's Christmas Gift Guide. Thanks Leanne! I also keep a couple in a wee jewelled trinket box I picked up on my last trip to Victoria's Way, the mental but wonderful sculpture and philosophy park just outside of Dublin (so worth a visit if you can!).

Do you go through phases with accessories, too? What's your current fave?
