|She-Beads Holiday 2015 collection: Peace|
For this season, the lovely Alexandra worked with white, gold, copper and a little touch of black, to give us a collection with some gleam and a touch of sparkle - I think she's really talented...
Here's a link to the video of her making these beads - it's fascinating:
The range of ways that you can wear this jewelry is nearly infinite - there's nary a color that won't look cool with these. I like the way they bring an unexpected warmth to colors that don't usually get warmth...
If you're going to wear snazzy jewelry, you might as well have a stand-out manicure. While I have really conflicting feelings about nail polish, there are some times when it's very difficult to resist!
I love all of the textures and patterns in the first outfit, and I think the jewelry gives an unexpected zest to the red dress. Yes, you've seen those dark gold pumps before - I'm really smitten with the versatility of that darker gold tone!
Lace and tweed dress – Dolce & Gabbana; Baroque Bronze polish –
Cool jewelry really earns its stripes when you're dressed casually, and the jewelry does the "heavy lifting" to dress up your outfit.
For what it's worth, I get absolutely nothing but love from the people at She Beads - I share their work with you because I think that they're talented, and that the jewelry they produce is unique, beautiful, and fun!
More about Paris coming Monday...
