A Sweet Mix of Metals– the Layered Chain Collar

26 Feb

Recently, we talked statement necklace. What’s incredible about this style is that your closet can be filled with neutrals and basics. But suddenly your simple leggings and tee becomes a complete look with the addition of a statement collar. Or if your closet is filled with colors and prints, a statement piece can amp up your look. This spring Sweet Bling is no stranger to bringing you this statement.

We have metal on the mind with this Sweet Bling statement collar. What we dig about this piece is it features silver, gold, and dark crystals. Choosing a bracelet, ring, or earrings to pair with this look would be no trouble. When it comes to choosing clothing, wear with black and white, or your wildest of patterns. The mix of metals gives you endless pairing alternatives.

Here, I’m heading out to dinner with friends, full of laughter. I chose to wear this piece with a high collared sheer white tank and black skinny cropped pants. My closet is filled with black and white. This look would be a classic paired with some fun flats. But for me, I like adding a bit of an edge with my black leather Steve Madden Troopa lace-up boots.

New York Fashion Week 2014 Makes a Statement

20 Feb

New York Fashion Week has reached its close. We were given a preview of what Fall 2014 will have to offer. Statement necklaces are hitting lines with a boom. Heart and Gamble came to the runway with bright laser cut jewelry pieces extending beyond shoulder width and covering the chest—solely works of art, with no intentions of reaching the streets. But what we can draw from these looks is neutral clothing with a bright pop of color in a jewelry piece is a must do. We can also thank Nicole Miller for presenting beads and layering among black necklaces with a more ready to wear objective on top of her dark clothing designs. Roberto Cavalli also truly mesmerized with his repetitive use of gold, texture, and extravagant patterns in his sparkling clothing pieces. Not stopping there, Cavalli completed many looks with heavy metal, gold necklaces and collars. The common theme—statement necklace. Now we watch for London, Milan, and Paris! Au revoir!

Chanel Punk Backpack

Chanel Punk Backpack

This punk inspired bricolage backpack from Chanel is featured in the January 2014 issue of Vogue. The seemingly DIY graffiti spray painted canvas tote from Karl Lagerfeld’s spring collection is brilliant. Woven ropes, heavy chain and a leather luggage tag all grace the muted colors on this $3,400 gem. But you don’t have to break the bank on these two bracelets from Peach Gold Snap Bracelet ($18) and our Gold and Crystal Ivory Leather Wrap Bracelet ($42).


Secret Message Charm

Secret Message Charm

About two years ago, I met a mom named Lisa at a neighborhood party. She heard that I make sterling silver hand stamped jewelry and asked me to make a charm with a special scrambled message for her daughter, Julia, who was a freshman in college — far from home. The message was “LOVE MOM.” She felt that it wouldn’t be obvious to others what the message was and the message would be their secret — unless her daughter chose to tell someone who asked about it. Two years later (October of 2013), I get a call from Lisa. Julia had called her in tears because she lost the necklace. Lisa knew Julia liked the necklace, and that she wore it almost all the time, but she didn’t realize how much the necklace meant to Julia until it was gone. Of course, Lisa’s heart broke when she heard her daughter sobbing about losing the necklace, she also felt a twinge of happiness knowing the necklace was so important to Julia (something Julia had never vocalized). So, this is the second version of the Secret Message Charm.

We love bling all year long — but the holidays give us a good excuse to adorn ourselves in head to toe bling. This Leopard Necklace looks great with a print dress like this one or a simple black dress. And our Bling Bling Crystal Earrings add a touch of elegance to any outfit. Finish off the look with our Crystal Studded Stretch Bracelet — and you are all set.

This is one of those necklaces that says sweet vintage and bling at the same time. It’s not easy to pull off, but this one does it with flying colors. And about those colors…they are fabulous! The deep greens, aqua, tangerine and purple paired with the citrine and crystal gemstones give this piece a decidedly unique look.
