Wire Jewelry: Hearts & Bird’s Nests

Wire Jewelry is a growing trend, and I’ve begun to see it everywhere. It seems like everybody is accessorizing with wire bracelets, rings, necklaces, and earrings, and I just love the look. Wire jewelry can come in silver, gold, and basically every other color imaginable, and the the possibilities for different designs are endless. Most popular is the wire heart ring (probably because it is the most simple for anyone to make).  I made these in the car (don’t worry I was only driving on side roads, not the expressway), and they were really easy to do:

                                                    

But, I have seen more elaborate designs for sale online and in a few stores, and I thought I’d give it a try. (Also, I was not actually driving while making heart shaped wire rings, I was a passenger in my mother’s car. I can barely change the radio station while driving, much less craft new pieces of jewelry. Okay, no more parenthesis.) My favorite wire jewelry design that I have seen so far is a tiny bird’s nest on a chain, and here is the lakeshore lavaliere version below:

This lakeshore lavaliere silver wire bird’s nest necklace has real pearls and hangs on a 16 inch silver chain. I love bigger pieces of jewelry, so it’s been awhile since I wore anything as delicate or dainty as this, but I’m obsessed with the look and think it’s time to add some variety into my style choices.

The tiny wire bird’s nest necklace is such a cute way to accessorize any outfit, and the silver and pearls will add a touch of class to any formal or cocktail attire.

Silver Cameo Cuff Bracelet

Cameos are the perfect accessory if you like the vintage look– they’ve been around so long, even the ancient Greeks made them. A piece of jewelry that features a cameo can be a really great accent to a more formal outfit (but they’re great for everyday wear too!), and can add a classy touch that completes your look. This lakeshore lavaliere silver cameo cuff bracelet with black flowers and a gray liner was a custom order (I loved the customer’s request so much, I’m making myself a similar one!):

This bracelet would look great paired with a black dress and silver earrings!

Just click the pictures to access the listing in the lakeshore lavaliere online store! Other cameos colors and flower colors are available. The liner is also optional, (the customer just imagined hers with gray undertones, so that’s what I did!) Just specify your requests at checkout!

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

Check back tomorrow for a DIY coaster tutorial, and pictures of custom ordered bridesmaid jewelry!

Don’t Forget About the Classics

Big colorful statement pieces are great to accent almost any look, but that doesn’t mean the classic, simpler styles are out. Delicate jewelry can be just as effective to accessorize outfits for all occasions, especially on those days where you’d rather let your clothing itself be the focal point of your entire ensemble. Smaller pieces that recall the classic styles of bygone eras are also great for anything from cocktail parties to days when you just want to feel classy-that is, classier than you already are of course ; ). If you like the vintage styles, but want something a little more, try a piece that recalls the classic style, but has a twist, like these silver cuff bracelets with funky yet understated flower bows,
