Neon Jewelry - the Latest Fun Fashion Accent
Neon Jewelry - Bracelets, Necklaces and now, Rings
You have all seen the brightly coloured bracelets for sale with friendly words on them - friendship, honesty, love, etc. Lately there has also been the 'Boobies' campaign on behalf of breast cancer.
Now, from a new supplier in Singapore, we have RememberingsTM, great little neon rings with messages on them.
You can also make your own bright cheery jewellry. Especially great with cheerful summer dresses or to pop against a dark top or sweater. From pony beads to seed beads to beautiful multi-colored glass beads, there are so many wonderful options to creating something that is very personlly yours.
You no longer have to carry around little lists reminding you of what you need to get done. RememberingsTM are meant to remind you of important tasks and events and be cheerful and eye catching at the same time. RememberingsTM come in great bright colours - green, orange, blue, red and purple. They are one size fits all.
They are inscribed, just as the old bracelets were, but messages are reminders rather than mottoes. They say things like "Take your pills", "Pay Your Bills" or "Call Mom". At the moment they seem to only be available on-line direct from Bravo Company
The Rememberings rings are only available directly on-line - you can find them above. If you search around you will find that there are other really nice brightly coloured rings available.
For some time now, bright rubber bracelets have been very popular. They can express a motto like friendship, honesty, love, or happiness and come in many colours.
There have also been bracelets sold for good causes such as the I Love Boobies bracelets for breast cancer and the LIVESTRONG bracelets - also in support of cancer.
Whatever your sentiment, there is a bracelet or bracelets for you.
Other Neon Jewelry
Of course there is other jewelry that comes in bright neon colours. Necklaces, watches, hair acccents. They are all available.
I think though that when it comes to necklaces, you can easily make your own creative, one of a kind, statement. Look around for bright things that inspire you. You can go to a dollar store or to a craft shop and find a lot of really pretty things. They will also have laces for a necklace and the parts to create your own pendant to hang on it. You will see them as a metal part with a loop at the top for the lace to go through. Then take your chosen accent and glue it to the pendant form. Could it be easier?
Of course, we all learned to string beads as kids. Even simply stringing beads for a necklace can be beautiful. There are a lot of really great beads in craft stores or on line.
Simple seed bead or pony bead necklaces on a cord are great for fun summer neon highlights. Your neon bright necklace can be made up in a snap.
This video sort of suddenly stops but it has some very good tips in it to get you going with beading.
Nacklace Making Supplies
There are lots of supplies available to make your own neon bright fun necklace. These are just a couple I happen to like. But you can also look in dollar stores and thrift shops for something a little different.
I love the extra sparkle of the beads that have a bit of silver in the center. This kit has all the colors you could want.
For something extra special - crystals. You can string them together for real sparkle. I like to use them as accents with other smaller beads - for variety and texture.
Or Ready Made Bright Jewelry
The Tova neckaces are really beautiful. I covet one of these. But you know, you can always emulate the style on your own.
