If you were a pre-teen or teenager in the 1990s, chances are you had at least one of these pieces of jewelry:
Giant chunky plastic rings. These would only stay on if I put them on my thumbs.
Hemp or bead rings with clay beads. I always looked for these at craft fairs and souvenir shops. Must-have accessories for my tie-dye shirt/Birkenstocks outfit in middle school.
Anything with dolphins on it.
Something completely tacky from Claire's.
A smiley face. Perfect complement to a yin yang charm.
Chinese good fortune bracelet.
"What Would Jesus Do?" bracelet. A constant reminder to think about your actions first. Or just another thing to accessorize with, as it came in every color.
So many more pieces that I didn't keep: hard plastic pacifiers, "tattoo" chokers, slap bracelets, "Y" necklaces....
