Whether you love making jewellery, or you love buying it from a jewellery store, you will no doubt have an eye for what looks hot or not. Jewellery all has one thing in common – it’s beautiful, but that doesn’t mean it all stands out from the crowd. If you want to build or buy a piece that’s “you” through and through, then here’s how to do it.
Most people think you can buy jewellery in gold and silver and that’s about all, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a multitude of metal types from which to choose, but you can also change it up with what sits on that metal as well.
On necklaces, rings, and earrings, you can add bold plastic pieces and colors that enhance the metal. Take yellow, for example. You can customize silver jewellery with yellow accents then tie it in beautifully with vibrant clothing. You and your outfit will look a million bucks.
Layer it Up
Some jewellery designs are all about creating a look with more than one piece. Let the jewellery tell its story on its own, but write the whole book with a collection. Stacking jewellery up is a fashion trend that has been in and out since time began.
Even Edwardian and Victorian women had a form of jewellery layering – and it hasn’t died out just yet. Buy yourself some lovely bracelets and get to work pairing them with others, so they stand out from the crowd.
Go Big or Go Home
In the 1960s through until the 1990s, big was best. Women (and some men) would wear large, chunky earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. The petite jewellery designs followed next, but chunky is slowly coming back into fashion. Try your hand at creating large necklaces or bracelets that make your outfit pop. Alternatively, you can pick up different options at your local jewellery store.
If you’re time-poor and need to accessorize quickly in the morning, then a pendant has always been a life saver. It’s on a long chain, and you can swap out the pendant for all manner of different options to suit your clothing. Pendants also stand out in their own right. You can design them yourself, so they mean something to you or wear them based on your outfit for the day.
Designing jewellery, or even buying it, that stands out from the crowd is not a five-minute process. It can take time and money to complete your entire ensemble, so it’s the picture of perfection.
