If you don’t feel comfortable with big pieces of jewelry, but you still want a sort of “statement”, consider tripling up on your jewelry. (for some reason, it works really well with odd numbers).
Tiny brooches, like those shown above, take on a new level of impact when grouped. (these pins are about one inch across). You can do this very effectively with bracelets too. Sometimes, with necklaces. Earrings… could be tricky…
Pins are particularly fun – the variety of designs available is staggering! Were you to suddenly decide that you wanted to find five brooches that looked like feathers, or vegetables, or hearts, or ballerinas – they’re out there.
This can be great fun. And some of these pieces are VERY inexpensive. Between etsy, bonanza, and ebay, there are tens of thousands of pieces of vintage jewelry waiting for us to snap up and create a new signature look.
