Ailsa’s Travel theme of this week is Merchandise.
I chose these images from an amazing jewellery store in the Turkish village Göçek. Since my first visit five years ago the shop expanded several times and is now a treasury containing loads of silver, compound turquoise, enamel and brass. Though I often wear necklaces – and always earrings – I’m afraid my ordinary life is not really compatible with this kind of extravaganza. For myself, plain silver is what I prefer.
