Personally, for me, jewelry is blissfulness. Furthermore, it intoxicates like the ever-elusive Shangri-La. There are only a few worldly possessions that delight you. And, indeed, this brings me joy! Ooh…my precious holdings!
Granted, a few years ago, my heap of jewelry had been too jazzy, multi-colored, and what’s more, run-down. Specifically, it was never consistent. As a result, there was a considerable amount of time spent sorting through it. Due to the fact, making decisions about what to wear every day was difficult.
Finally, I discovered these thin, golden-colored things! To my delight, they have been most cherished and treasured!
Consequently, I have built a small assortment. It consists of mainly gold or rose gold plated items and some brass and silver pieces. Also, I weave into this selection a few pieces of precious stones or pearls. These, when strung together in thin gold, look gorgeous.
My particular affection lies in jewelry that is minimal in design. Likewise, I am captivated by geometric forms in my jewelry. So, I always scout for interesting configurations and outlines. Uncomplicated, pure, and clean details are engaging. They tell a coherent story. To add layers and enhance texture, I try hammered, matte, or sheeny finishes. It generates variation that can be subtle yet engaging.
I have discovered that longer necklaces help to add visual height. They aid in perceiving a slender frame. Black, white and neutral shades of wardrobe present a perfect backdrop to highlight jewelry. Any outfit feels put together, crisp and elevated. Indeed, it saves time and effort.
These simple pieces are easy to function for everyday wear to work, lunch, or a stroll in the park. Besides, they effortlessly transform your look from work to evening wear. Throw it on, and you are ready to grab that happy hour drink!
No doubt, these metal scraps are my splurge! However, they also appreciate the craftsmen’s design and skills who detail and form them. They are, namely, splendid makings that integrate strategy, art, and technique. Thus, I have slowly invested in my collection and gradually built on it for a few years.
Unquestionably, that stunning necklace, eye-catching bracelet, or a striking bold earring will be a standout detail of any outfit!
