Sophisticated yet inexpensive designer mosaic earrings

Use these gorgeous and inexpensive mosaic earrings to help you accessorize your outfits. Did you know that professional designers often use a multi-colored item for the basis of their designs?

As a graphic designer, I do this all the time and the same applies to fashion and accessories. Often, a certain outfit that you see in Vogue or a similar fashion magazine will look effortless and yet the stylists and designers will have spent many hours putting the look together.

You too can use this design secret.

We all know that accessories can make or break an outfit. Stylish and sophisticated women throughout the ages have know this and have chosen their accessories and jewelry wisely.

Today, the world's most fashionable designers are returning us to an age of elegance and style and jewelry and accessories are the perfect way to demonstrate your own original sense of fashion and taste.

The wonderful thing about designing your outfits using accessories is that it's inexpensive. Once you have these essential items, you have a limitless variety of stylish looks.

Fashion editor Caroline and I looked at dozens before we selected our favorites. They are all available to order online (ordering info is below each photograph) and we were careful to choose value-for-money options so you get the maximum style for the lowest price.

These beauties, being primarily black and white, will go with everything. But look closely. You can also see coral pink and a hint of yellow.

These are the subtle colors that stylists and designers look for.

Yes, we can certainly see yellow and brown in the examples above. This makes them idea to go with earth-toned outfits.

The designer would immediately see the black within the amber too so a black scarf, shoes or bag, would be very appropriate.

What beautiful colors there are in these gorgeous pieces. These are a great accessory with a gray outfit. Like the previous example, these go very well with natural leather accessories.

Note too that there's a hint of eau de nil - a delicate green. This is a wonderful color for a soft scarf or shawl.

Moving further round the color spectrum, these lovely examples have subtle colors including aqua, stale gray and sky blue. These colors are enormously popular for the forthcoming season.

They are feminine colors and yet the aqua and the slate in particular can be used to create a powerful look when used in accessories.

Further reading

Accessories are so important. That's great news for us because you only need a small outlay to make outfits exciting and look very different.

When I was at art college, part of our course included fashion design. Because the college was so close to London, we had incredible guest tutors who were successful practicing designers and we had the value of accessories drilled into us regularly.

This is a great selection of books where you can learn more ... or they make a great gift for a fashion-designer-to-be.

If you buy these earrings as a gift, print out the color swatches so that your recipient can choose great ways to make the most of their lovely colors.
