No Rules

Posted on September 23 2017

There are no rules, -just your own imaginative ways to create dimension to whatever you are wearing!!


Today I still adhere to that philosophy!  Play with your jewelry!  The more rules you break the more you are playing with your jewelry --and not the other way around!

I like to think of the jewelry box like a painter’s palette. Colors come together sometimes surprisingly – sometimes just perfect on their own.  No matter what -- there are no rules, --just your own imaginative ways to create dimension to whatever you are wearing!! 

I grew up playing with jewelry in my mother’s jewelry box. I would stack bracelets one on top of the other and often would attach enough pins/brooches -- if you will  --in a cluster on my shirt -- so that I looked like I had earned some very special medals.  

Today I still adhere to that philosophy!  Play with your jewelry!  The more rules you break the more you are playing with your jewelry --and not the other way around!

Rings take very kindly to stacking or wearing on multiple fingers!  Find a possible common element –maybe it’s a stone color or the way the gold is burnished. There is something so fun when I watch someone on their computer tap away with rings on lots of fingers or holding a glass of wine. Somehow it’s the person wearing the jewelry that sparkles as much as the jewels!  

Spacing necklaces is also another way to add a little kick to dressing up or even dressing down.  Whether your jeans and tee shirt need to be taken up a notch or an LBD that needs a little oomph   --try a choker and then a strand that goes a bit further and then the next one from there  -- and as many as you’d like -- depending really on how tall you are!

Mixing metals, leather, wood; roping -- opens up all kinds of possibilities.  Wrapping, stacking combining can easily pull together the entire look you are going for  –whether its this summer’s floral/peasant look or Falls upcoming more tailored suiting and white shirts.

Who can resist the Fall magazines that pop up in August or the web sites from any number of style gurus or the fashion fabulous??  But no matter what you see, or want, or desire, or buy -- you are your best stylist!!!  Sure take a page out of anybody else’s photo shoot, but with jewelry -- in particular – my motto is there are no rules!!
