When you are choosing the right pieces of handcrafted jewellery to accessories your outfits it can become quite an art form. You have not only to take into account the type of jewellery you are choosing but also the style, colours, design what it is made from and the occasion it is going to be worn for.
Finding the right piece that will fit all these criteria and it can sometimes become a headache and what are the right pieces to wear for the right occasions, should I wear a beaded necklace of glass beads with a woollen jumper, should I wear pearl earrings to go shopping in and will it be OK to accessories my little black dress with a jewellery set of wooden beads. There are so many ways we can get it wrong but do not worry there are so many ways that we can get it right.
One of the rules when choosing your pieces of handcrafted jewellery to wear is that it should compliment what you are wearing. If you are wearing something that is soft and slinky then you need to look for designs that are delicate and feminine. Semi-precious pendants with lovely semi-precious pendants on fine chains or necklaces crafted from small beads of crystal beads and pearls will look beautiful will feminine styles of clothes. If it is a casual outfit of jeans and a jumper that you are going to wear then bright beaded designs will look good worn with these. You can dress a casual outfit up into something bright and funky by adding these pieces of handcrafted jewellery and there are many designs in the shops for you to choose from and these will include beaded necklaces, jewellery bracelets made from bright beads and earrings in every colour that you could ever want.
It is not only the style of the outfit that if you are accessorising that has been taken into consideration but the colour plays a large part. If the outfit has a busy pattern then keep your pieces of handcrafted jewellery plain in both colour and design. Look for just one colour within the pattern of the outfit and use this as the chosen colour of the jewellery. If you think that your outfit as a frame for your earrings, bracelets, necklaces, jewellery sets, and other pieces this will help. If your outfit is black you will find that most colours will look great with this but if you are looking for something that is really dramatic then a large statement piece of Stirling Silver jewellery will look amazing and if you do not want to wear a necklace you could choose a jewellery set of matching large cuff bracelet and earrings. The designs of these could just be crafted from silver or they could be set with your favourite semi-precious stone. Sterling silver also looks stunning with dark red, green and blues. Try mixing the same colours but in different shades for example if you have a pale blue dress team it up with pieces of handcrafted that have been made from Blue Goldstone and if it is a lilac coloured suit then the semi-precious stone Amethyst would compliment this perfectly.
You have also to think about the event that this piece of handcrafted jewellery is going to be worn for, if it is very formal and you are going to be wearing and off the shoulder ball gown you could opt to wear something bright and sparkly in the form of a collar necklace with long chandelier earrings or if it is just a casual dinner date with friend you might want to wear something that is bright and funky.
