Beading it out!

nBeaded jewelry by in itself, is a very unique facet to the world of jewels and ornaments. Unlike conventional jewelry who’s value is largely derived from the type of stones or material used, the value of beaded jewelry comes from their design and the creative worth of the designer making them.

A Beaded jewel designer makes use of simple stringing, wire wrapping and stitching techniques to create wearable works of art that are limited only by their own expansive imagination, with the created pieces being very reflective of key trends and styles in the ever changing world of fashion and design.

Although designers do their best in not gravitating towards a certain colour or design palette and branch out, the character and vibes of their creations would unmistakably be their own.

5 WAYS TO LOOK EFFORTLESSLY STYLISH IN BEADS:

 

  • jKEEP IT SIMPLE:A simple string of light-colored beads (think light pink, ivory, or opaque) can contribute an understated classiness. Jacqueline Kennedy’s timeless pearls come to mind. Even without the white gloves, you can achieve the same Classic look with a quick clasp of faux pearls.
  • COLOR IS GOOD:A bright pop of color around one’s neck shouts happy. They don’t necessarily have to “match” the outfit you’re wearing, but they do have to “blend.” In other words, A peach wrap for example, looks even more summeresque when paired with faux jade beads.
  • mGET LOOPY:The potential for versatility abounds. Try pairing a strand of thin beads with thick. Consider braving several loops or going with one long rope. A simple shirt turns into an outfit with the right pairing of beads.
  • IN COLOR:One of the best aspects of bead jewelry is the amazing range of colors. Beads made of plastic, glass, wood, and crystal can be found in all your favorite hues. Gemstone bead necklaces incorporate authentic gems in a rainbow of colors. Wear bright blue, pink, and yellow beaded necklaces in the spring, or brighten a winter day with emerald and sapphire bead jewelry. Shiny metal beads make for contemporary beaded necklaces. Wear metal beaded jewelry with skinny jeans and silk shirts.
  • SIZE MATTERS:Bead size is an important consideration when shopping for beaded necklaces. Large beads make for a dramatic piece of jewelry, while small beads are very delicate and feminine. Keep other jewelry to a minimum when wearing beaded necklaces with large beads in order to avoid looking weighed down.

So, all you ladies bead it out the right way!

How to maintain your fashion jewellery

How to maintain your jewellery

Don’t you just hate discoloured and faded jewellery? When your favourite pair of earrings or your most treasured charm bracelet go a weird, unappealing colour?  The lustre and beauty of inexpensive jewellery can also be maintained well with the right care and tips.  Here are a few measures to prolong the spark and brightness to your imitation jewellery.

1.STORAGE METHOD-

It is very important to store your jewellery in the right manner. Keeping your jewellery lying around on your dresser or hanging them around is most likely to cause damage to them. A good suggestion will be to store them in small air tight plastic zipper bags and be certain to let out all the air before zip locking. This will play the biggest role in avoiding the dulling and tarnishing of your jewellery.

2. STORAGE WHILE TRAVELING-

It is a must to store your jewellery very carefully while you travel, as they are carried around and damage is unavoidable. You can still keep them safe by storing them in jewellery cases. Specifically designed jewellery cases lined with fabric and dividers is the ideal storage for your jewellery.

3. JEWELLERY POUCHES-

For those who do not have a jewellery case or have run out of space in a small jewellery case, can use a jewellery pouch which also serves the purpose. These jewellery pouches are made out of satin and velvet on the inside which keeps your jewels damage free. Note: while placing necklaces in these pouches, one must make sure to place them untangled.

4. ORGANISERS-

For jewellery made out of wood/glass or plastic, which do not discolour can be hung on a jewellery tree or put in racks. A jewellery tree is usually kept on your dresser with branches that are used to hang your wooden/glass or plastic bangles. This way you would avoid losing or breaking them.

5. MOISTURE-

Imitation jewellery should never be exposed to moisture of any sort, like: creams, hairspray, perfumes, water or any chemicals. When you are all dressed up to leave for your party or work, make sure to spray your perfume and then wear your jewellery. If not, this will cause dullness and discolour your jewellery. Always apply cosmetics before wearing your jewellery.

Now, it is as popular in the west, as it is in India. So much so, that there is a vast market in the bangle trade, be it precious or non precious. Ornamental bangles made of precious metals and stones are beyond the reach of the aam admi, hence this has given rise to a market of bangles made of semi-precious metals and stones known as FASHION JEWELLERY. The love for this ornamental jewellery has given rise to various types of bangles.
