After the Romance

So the day of love is over y’all!!! I took really quick pictures of the stuff I wore up until Valentines Day and still I’ll probably be wearing throughout the remainder of February. (Forgive the pictures as it looks like I took them with a box instead of a camera. I will repost MUCH better pictures later)

A friend made this necklace. Its cut agate in pink with the words Love in a square formation. I love this since it’s so trendy.

This is a pink flower enamel ring with clear crystal scattered on the petals. I wore that with the pink charm necklace on the left. Simple yet elegant.

Below is a charm bracelet that I actually wore as an anklet since it can fit me now. Just pink and white gems on gold chain link.

Below is a chunky heart necklace with matching earrings. I actually got this years ago at a hair store, lol. Say what you will but I love costume jewelry. It never turned colors on me and is still sparkly ūüôā

Another heart charm necklace. The heart itself is coral and the flower is enamel. The rest of the necklace is gold.

This is a gunmetal funky heart necklace. I take it by now you’re noticing how much I love hearts, lol.

I got this years ago from a friend who was just going to throw it away!!! Insane right? So I saved it’s life and found other uses for it. It’s a chunky chain link necklace with pink dangling beads. If you’re wearing all black, or a strapless top or dress, this necklace looks great.

And last but not least. Some cute little heart shaped earrings. If you’re wearing your hair up, these are for you!

If you have pictures of your own jewelry that you’d like to show off, send them to JewelFetish@hotmail.com under the heading, “My Jewelry” along with the name you want shown, and I’ll upload them in a separate post.

Coming up next we’ll be talking about the amethyst and showing off some amethyst jewelry. If you have amethyst jewelry of your own, or just the raw gemstone itself, you can send those pictures as well to JewelFetish@hotmail.com under the heading “Amethyst” along with the name you want shown and I’ll upload them in my next post.

See you next time!

Rack ’em and Stack ’em

Harkening from many¬†years ago is the revival of stacking bracelets! I remember this trend when I was a kid, and grouping together as many neon bangles onto one arm as possible meant something. I used¬†to love the sound they made while I was carrying on with my daily whatever, (I¬†must have¬†been 10, so it was really just school, play, sleep) but to put it simply, they’re just fun to wear.

When buying them as costume jewelry, most times they come stacked for you, the perfect colors already blended together. This helps because sometimes it’s hard to have an eye for the perfect bling to look for, and pull something together from scratch and¬†make it look good. (It must also¬†coordinate with your outfit).¬†I love the assistance.

But the beauty about this trend is that many of us still have bangles from the days when they used to be sold as sets¬†in twos, and now we only have one. Some of us still only have one from many a set. Use this to your advantage and just group ’em all together!¬†There’s always a creative way to use our old or mismatched jewelry. Now… if only I could find a way to do this with my earrings that are missing their partners. Rest assured, If I find a way, I’ll be posting it here. ‘Til next time ‚̧
