(Part 2 of 2)
Last week, we covered winter white, animal themed jewelry and the long awaited and highly celebrated return of chandelier earrings. If you missed it and want to catch up, click here.
Here is the other half of the story:
Kiss all the old rules goodbye! Matching metals are so 20th century. These days, it’s all about mixing it up. Multiple metals make a piece feel a bit tough. Mixed tones give elegant pieces a bit of edge.
This necklace pairing from Etsy’s Jewelsalem is a great example of layered charms and pendants. The only rule here seems to be paying attention to proportion. Keep one layer up close to the neck, allow the longest layer to plunge, and fill in the middle with as many additional layers as you like. Coordinate your metals and charms for a classic look, or mix it all up for a more Bohemian style.
This one just won’t go away — for now, at least, the statement necklace is here to stay. Interestingly, the newest crop of statement necklaces aren’t really about exotic materials or extreme glamour. Instead, it’s about the impact that comes from lots and lots of simple materials. This great necklace from Favormaking is just mixed seed beads on black SoftFlex. Like 50 strands of black SoftFlex.
