Handcrafted Fine Jewelry

Updated on September 12, 2014

Accessorizing with Jewelry

Accessorizing with handcrafted fine jewelry is singularly the most easiest and impelling ways to make any outfit look stunning. Choosing a couple of sensational pieces of jewelry is very similar to picking your wardrobe. As a matter of fact, quite a lot image consultant and stylists consider your overall jewelry collection as a wardrobe, since your jewelry is just as meaningful as the outfits you wear. Like a picture frame completes and draws attention to the photo within, picking the correct jewelry emphasizes your most important features.

How best then to wear the handcrafted fine jewelry you currently own? Taking stock of your current jewelry ensemble will help you immediately identify pieces you no longer wear, and more importantly, provides you with a feeling of what you and your overall comfort level. Over time, you have probably developed a knack of preferences and dislikes, favoring gold over silver or rings over bracelets.

As a rule, grays, brunetts, and redheads should wear silver handcrafted fine jewelry, while blondes look fabulous in gold and copper. If you are brunette, and warm colors appeal you, wearing gold would work just as well. Women with black hair usually look best in all three metals: copper, gold, and silver. However, there are no definite rules. If you unequivocally love silver and you’re a blond, or a brunette, redhead, or gray and love gold or copper, go for it!

Don't mix looks. A contemporary silver cuff will not look right coupled with classic gold filigree earrings. Select a paired bracelet and earring set or two matching necklaces also looks glorious. For years, it was verboten to intermix metals. This was one of those archaic standards that most designers now disregard. The trick is if you crave to intermix metals, maintain the style of jewelry the same. A plain hammered chain necklace of gold and silver, or silver and copper links looks absolutely ravishingand is very fashion-forward. Stacking bracelets or necklaces also lends perfectly to the mixing of metals. You can even combine round or square bangles or rings in various shades of gold, silver or copper.

In terms of matching your handcrafted fine jewelry to your outfit, if you are wearing multiple colors, your accessories should counterbalance the entire ensemble. As an example, if you are wearing red and black, you should have an even amount of red accessories (possibly coral or garnets) and black accessories (onyx or a black silk scarf). Adhere to the same color palate for assured success. Wear ruby or garnet earrings with a red top, or a blue topaz or sapphire -accented necklace or pendant with your most popular blue dress. Most importantly, make sure your handcrafted fine jewelry is relevant for the occasion or event that you will be wearing it to.

Think through having at least one signature piece of premium jewelry that you wear regularly (other than your wedding band). It does not have to be a handcrafted one-of-a-kind designer piece. There are an abundance of amazing pieces on the market that are unsigned but positively make a fashion statement. Above all, make sure that your everyday or couture handcraftedjewelry is in prime condition. If it’s showing signs of fatigue, have it replaced, upgraded, or repaired.

Just keep in mind that frequently worn handcrafted fine jewelry should coordinate well with your entire wardrobe and should echo your unique style. Execute this look when choosing new pieces to grow to your handcrafted fine jewelry wardrobe. Most importantly, keep in mind that staying within your level of comfort and your unique fashion style goes miles in building your confidence and personality glisten.

      What a beautiful idea! I love how you put the color in 3 separate bands or groupings. And Rena is right - your wire prong work is very well done.

      Love the color palettes in your beaded jewelry, and your wire-work looks top notch! Wire prong rings are difficult to get just right - but it looks like you've mastered it, and without leaving any plier-marks! Thanks for sharing your lovely jewelry.
