For me, jewellery evokes memories and I like to be reminded or a particular place or time. Every single piece of jewellery that i’ve bought on my travels, I still wear and I wanted some souvenirs from Alvor to mark my time there.
The more bracelets on my arms, the better! I love the little leather and beaded bracelets that most countries abroad sell. I also found an antique metal bracelet with gorgeous amber/green coloured stones that is almost identical to a bracelet I bought in the Ibiza Hippy Market. I also chose a few leather/beaded bracelets that snap shut with a seriously satisfying magnetic snap – these were around 3 euros from the ocean side market in Lagos.
