Traditions are what tie people together. A tradition is a shared experience that connects us to the human race. There is more to accessorizing than simply matching an outfit. Tribal fashions are on the rise, and it’s no wonder why. Decorating ourselves w

ith layered strands of beads, large wooden blocks and exaggerated dangling chains makes us feel connected to to tradition– to our ancestors. Those looks of years gone by have stood the test of time.  So we embrace them today and will carry them through to tomorrow.

Let’s explore a few of the elements that can give jewelry that tribal feel:

Materials

Dyed bone helps us feel grounded and in tune with our instincts. Oxidized silver, wood and shells help us feel closer to the Earth. All metals are precious and a gift of honor in ancient societies.

Symbols

Certain symbols of peace and hope are easily identified across many cultures. The Om is an example of one of these universal symbols.

Colors

Colors like black, white and silver are wonderfully offset by bright red. These are timeless color choices that have been used in tribal jewelry since the very beginnings of civilization, because these colors are commonly found in nature (in the form of ebony, seashell, metal and coral).

Whatever your style, whatever your reason for wearing the tribal trend, choose accessories that make you feel strong and proud!

5 simple rules for statement fashion!

The term “statement” is one of the most oft-heard (and maybe slightly overused) words in fashion, whether it’s via an email subject line that promises “10 Statement Necklaces To Fall In Love With” or coming out of your own mouth when talking to a friend about what to wear tomorrow night. “Statement piece” is todays buzzword for sure!

 What better way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement jewellery?

Statement pieces are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements if they are not worn correctly.

Here are 5 simple rules to get the statement piece fashion right!

1. Less is more

Bold pieces should be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close proximity of each other.

2. Keep it simple

Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Steer clear of busy patterns and embellishments such as sequins when wearing bold jewelry.

3. Choose earrings wisely

When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Also make sure that your make-up balances well with your earrings. If you are wearing a brightly coloured pair, they may look best with clean and simple makeup.

4. Adorn your arms tastefully

Cuff bracelets are an excellent choice if you want to wear a statement piece. To show yours off, keep your arms bare or wear a cuff over a slim-fitting one colour long sleeve top. Stick to one cuff to create a focal point.

5. Wear pieces that create an outfit

Remember that statement pieces are supposed to make – you guessed it – a statement, so choose pieces that help to create an over-all outfit. If you are going for a prim and polished look, opt for pearls . Vintage or floral pieces will look beautiful with a romantic and feminine outfit, while colourful beads are a must if you are going for a boho look.

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!
