Wear Your Jewellery Right

by JewelStruck on Jul.04, 2013, under Jewelry Trends

Wearing jewellery can make any woman feel beautiful inside and out. But this can also be tricky when you overdo this. Jewellery is meant to complement your outfit and draw attention to your face and not overwhelm your whole look. Jewellery when worn correctly should exude the right amount of style yet still be elegant. So here are some tips on how to wear that simple pearl necklace or your favourite cocktail ring that would make Coco Chanel proud.

You really have to think long and hard about which jewellery can go well with your look. Wearing denim for a casual day out and a crisp white shirt goes well with pearl earrings and a nice leather watch. If you’re going out on a dinner date, pick a nice necklace that will draw attention to your collarbone and neck or a pair of simple drop earrings to draw attention to your face. Shopping for jewellery shouldn’t be as daunting, that’s why there’s your social network to help you with all your fashion emergencies. You can also get some style pointers from celebrity and model Katie Price who recently launched her own accessory line complete with tiaras, bejeweled iPhone cases, and diamante studded accessories that every girl loves that’s why she was awarded as FoxyBingo‘s Celebrity Mum of the Year along with cutie pie former Spice Girl, Emma Bunton. You can also host a DIY jewellery making session with your new-found friends from online bingo. When you get enough fantastic ideas from your friends and favorite celebrities, you can be more confident in wearing them even at work. When you get your accessories on, there’s no stopping you from not only looking good, but also feeling good.

When it comes to wearing jewellery at work, be sure to stick to the classics. A pair of diamond studs or pearl earrings is enough to make a statement. It’s also best to refrain from wearing big hoop earrings when you’re in a corporate environment – remember, you’re not in the club. A simple yet elegant dress watch can add a touch of class for your whole power suit. If you’re still wondering what outfit goes well with what jewellery, you can try visiting Nordstrom for the best fashion picks this season.

Fall Winter Trends : Fun with bib-necklaces!

by ylenia on Nov.16, 2009, under Handmade Jewelry

Today’s post is about one of the coolest fall-winter jewelry trends. Bib-necklaces are funny, romantic and give my neck a warm and cozy feeling. This is why I love creating them in a wide range of models and colors, enriching each one  with sequins, beads, vintage buttons and wool embroidery. I like sewing on their back a lovely satin ribbon to be tied around the neck or providing them with an adjustable chain to create a nice contrast between fabric and metal.

My fall-winter creations are mostly in felt, but I long for spring to start creating them in different fabrics and keep playing! ;)

Here can you find a selection of  bib-necklaces I created so far:

You can find them and even more in my stores

Getting started with Jewelry Making – Inspiration Ideas

by roberta on Nov.10, 2009, under Business Tips, Jewelry Making

Creating Jewelry to me was a hobby for a long time. During the economic crisis and because of health issues I had to change my life spending much time at home. Accustomed to the rhythms of my “lost” work and life very intense, I didn’t knew what to do with my time. And then I started to use this time to create new jewelry.

  1. The first thing was to get informed on trends and styles that were trendy, surfing the Net and looking for new inspirations.
  2. Then I subscribed to various magazines and purchased books that explained and illustrated techniques and materials.
  3. Visiting the sites of designers and craftsmen who were doing this work in a professional manner, was very useful too.

I started to apply what I learned. In the beginning – I was interested in too many subjects, types and techniques which resulted in wasting time, energy and materials in different experiments. I questioned myself, trying to identify what really I wanted to do.

Now I have fixed some steps to give an orientation to my work and this has allowed me to be clear not only about the starting point, but also about the goal to reach. I tried to use the work experience acquired over many years of decorating and art, studying art and drawing on this experience to create my own lines.

Part of the objects I create are commercial but always personal. This is my list by which I try to get inspiration from –

  • Colors
  • Favorite artists
  • Favorite books
  • Songs
  • Poems
  • Specific eras
  • Opposites (good and bad, vices and virtues, white and black, etc.)

Whats your breakdown list when you plan to create something?
