Packing for Convergence. Some of these pieces are new, many I've had since the early '00's, and a few pieces are from the 90's. I spent the better part of today re-clearcoating a few of the oldest pieces (and paining a few of the most worn items black in a last-ditch effort to keep them wearable), but this is only a small part of my collection. I'm leaving the oldest and most fragile pieces at home, lest the meet the fate so many of my old favorites did. I really miss my old reproduction Georgian/ Victorian mourning jewelry but I spilled nail varnish on those years ago, and they were ruined.
