Big and Bold Handmade Jewelry

Chunky accessories have become highly trendy in the fashion industry and are being worn by fashion models all over the runways. Beaded jewelry sometimes falls into this category when the beads are large in size, stacked, or created with vibrant colors. Handmade gemstone jewelry is also chic, especially when created with various types of gemstones in many sizes. Cuffs, bangles, and multi-layered necklaces are just a few of the handmade pieces that stand out from the crowd.

Filigree Handmade Jewelry

Filigree-style detailing is a popular technique used in the art of handcrafted jewelry. This is especially true for pieces such as ring mounts, earrings, and pendant necklaces. Filigree is typically made from platinum, gold, silver, and other finer metals. The delicate design created with these metals often lead this type of jewelry to become heirloom pieces. Filigree can take on various shapes and abstract designs. Many women choose filigree jewelry to wear when dressing up for dates, business meetings, or weddings.

Layering Handmade Jewelry

Layered jewelry has become an appealing trend among jewelry-wearers of all ages. Stacked bracelets and rings are created to portray distinctive layers and look fantastic with dressy attire or just a pair of jeans and a blouse. Multi-strand necklaces are also ideal for many occasions that call for unique pieces to give confidence and individuality. Handmade jewelry that uses layers exudes sophistication and makes a bold statement without being too distracting. Remember to only wear one layered piece at a time as to not overdo it.

Silver and Colors

As one of the more affordable types of precious metal, sterling silver is highly trendy in the fashion world. Quality handmade sterling silver jewelry pieces will last for many years and go well with nearly any wardrobe selection. Many pieces of gemstone jewelry are made from sterling silver, especially pendants, rings, and earrings. Handmade jewelry in Sterling silver is often complimented with bright colored and exotic gems that add shine and color to the metal. Wear silver with contrasting colors to spice up neutral outfits.
