I am wearing my grandmother's jewelry


... because I see my grandmother as a strong, crazy, smart, opinionated woman who hasn't always made the right choices but has been smoking a pack a day for 65 years (and remains without repercussions), so she must be doing something right.

I see the other women in my family as the foundation of who I am and who I will become, and so I wear their jewelry as a decoration of my personhood.
