I loved the first Stacks- Reader Edition post I did at the end of 2010... I could not wait any longer to put together another one!
Here we go:
From Left to Right:
The Silver Bangle: My grandparents gave me this for my 18th Birthday/High School Graduation and engraved my full name and graduation date on the inside
The Watch: When my maternal grandmother died this past fall, she insisted that all of her jewelry be spread out among her grandchildren. Specifically, she asked that I have her old watch since I'm the only one with wrists small enough to wear it. I like wearing it as a reminder that she's never that far away from me.
The Bracelets: Not too much story behind these. They're H&M and I've had them since high school. I thought that they flowed with the rest of my stack.
The Cuff: I purchased this in Acapulco, Mexico when I went on spring break my senior year of college. That trip was partially my graduation gift to myself so although the bracelet only cost 100 pesos (about 9 US dollars) the memories behind it make it a lot more special.
[CP Sidenote: LG is one of my favorite tumblrs :) ]
The photo includes (from the left) a bangle from my Dad's trip to Israel, an Italian glass bead bracelet from my Grandma on her trip to Italy with my Grandpa before he passed away (they picked out special bracelets for each grandchild), my Tiffany & Co. bracelet from my Dad as my 15th birthday present, a silver monogrammed amethyst bracelet from my favorite aunt, and my watch-it watch! So glad you decided to have people send in their stack pictures :)
My stack includes my watch from Storm, I love that the bracelet is actually more of a bracelet than a strap, plus the colours mean it compliments most outfits or acts my little splash of colour on a plain one! This is actually my second version of this watch having ruined my first one after getting mosquito repellent cream on it in the Caribbean :[ The plain silver bangle I purchased in Sri Lanka after visiting the temple housing the relic of the tooth of Buddha, I was extremely lucky to be one the few that actually got to see the relic as it is hidden away most of the time, I like to think this reminds to value how lucky I am and also that sometimes a spot of meditation is all you need! The next silver bangle has Paua shell in it which I bought at Te Papa museum in Wellington, New Zealand this summer of my first solo trip to the other side of the world, it is a dream of mine to both live in NZ and work at Te Papa so it reminds me of that, also Paua is known as 'sea opal' in English and my birthstone is the opal. The pink string is friendship bracelet-cum-hair tie-cum-emergency elastic band, this reminds me of my constant need to multi-task haha! Finally, a pearl bracelet because every outfit deserves one! I think my stack overall represents some of the places I've been and the places I'll go!

This bracelet is a Tiffany's sterling silver bead bracelet. This if one of my favorite bracelets and very important to me because my Aunt and Uncle gave it to me for my confirmation in February 2009.
The next bracelet is my Pandora bracelet. I am very close with a woman whose kids I babysit. She gave me my Pandora bracelet along with the first bead on the bottom for my eighteenth birthday. The top 3 beads, my parents have given me for various occasions. I can not wait to add more charms to it!
The next bracelet was given to me by my parents. I don't know where it is from because they bought it on vacation, but I love that is clasps together and that the clasps are gold and the rest of the bracelet is silver.
The last bracelet is a c-band bracelet. I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia when i was 9 years old. My Dad works for Colonial Williamsburg and I was a costumed interpreter there. This bracelet is important to me because I got it the Christmas after I moved there and the bracelet is a Colonial Williamsburg bracelet bought in one of the stores. I love that it reminds me of my Dad when I look at it.
