Oh How I Stack Thee

March 31, 2011

Coco Chanel offered us some famous advice on accessorizing, and that was to always take off the last thing you put on, but for several seasons now I have reluctantly ignored this tip choosing to pile on as many pieces as possible for a statement-making look! An armful of standout texture and sparkle is such a fun way to amp up your look, according to Mark Platt of People Magazine's Style Watch! Platt suggests the following 3 styling tips when mixing and matching decadent arm candy:
1.)Choose your palettePick a basic color scheme for you bracelets so this bold look doesn't start to  feel over the top
2.)Try different textures: Work in a couple of unexpected pieces to make your mix more interesting. 
3.) Keep it simple: Stack your bracelets on just one wrist. You can add another notice-me touch, like statement shoes, but a mostly minimal outfit lets your bracelets shine.  

Here are some of my most swoon-worthy stacks! Hope you're feeling inspired! 

Filigree For You Filigree For Me

March 30, 2011

The history that hides behind the beauty of filigree jewelry is just as complex as this lace like work of art itself! Filigree involves threads being soldered together to form an object and historically is an ordinary part of a jewelers work. As technology has progressed, the intricate hand made masterpieces of filigree jewelry have also changed with the times. For a modern day jeweler like myself, filigree is more accessible for use, I am actually able to buy loose components and pieces to work with in order to put together something that is noting short of fabulous!

Yo Ho Yo Ho Im a Pirate After All...

March 29, 2011

Did you miss me yesterday? I missed you! Anyways, Im back in business and todays post is one for the masses! A few months back I blogged about an editorial ran in GQ, Be A Man, Wear Jewelry. Today I need to pay a little homage to one Man in particular who truly embraces this concept and not only rocks it but, rocks it oh so well! Owning the cover of this past January's Vanity Fair Magazine, Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for him, Johnny Depp is sincerely self-styled with a devil-may-care attitude! I mean I am seriously suffering from a case of major jewelry envy by way of Johnny Depp's accessories! Always an original bad-ass JD tells us "life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? Im a pirate after all" JD doesn't lack originality in his style in any way whatsoever! Matter of fact he has a trend all to himself, he is a MAN and oh boy does he wear jewelry... can you say Swoon?
