How do you accessorise an outfit

July 16, 2009

I always wonder what goes well together.  Should I wear  earrings and a necklace to match my blouse or should I just wear a striking bracelet . What is in fashion and and what appeals to the eye.

When I was younger, I didn’t like to wear necklaces.  I would just wear  a matching earring. Nowadays, with me more involved in fashion jewelry, I try to wear an earring and a coordinated  bracelet and rarely do I wear all 3 matching pieces unless it is a special occasion.  It all depends on  my mood that day and how much time I have to get dressed.

What I find though is, however we wear it, if its a fine piece of jewelry and if its unique, it always catches somebody’s attention.

So how do you like to wear your jewelry?

I strung the amethyst stones on an elastic cord. The amethyst stones are separated by  silver plated spacers to enhance the colour . I have followed the same pattern on the earrings as well

I wanted to do justice to this blog but I couldn’t keep writing about jewelry and not show the pieces I made. After I wrote  one post, I figured, the best way to explain what I was talking about was with pictures. And I am not good at taking pictures.
For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to take good pictures of jewelry.  The ones that I took looked very drab and did no justice to the pieces. I figured I couldn’t do it mysef and got help from a dear friend’s husband. He was very accomodative and helped me take some really nice pictures.

Blue sea Bracelet and Earrings

 I made a few  bracelets and matching earrings with glass beads  for my son’s teachers just before he left Preschool as a token of appreciation. My son helped me pick the beads from Michaels. I may not have bought these beads in particular if not for him. He was very insistent on the colour. It turned out pretty good and I was  happy with the finished project. My weekend was gone trying to making these sets, taking pictures and individually wrapping them. My friend was kind enough to help me with the wrapping as well.
