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.

Statement Headbands That Make Less of a Statement

Statement headbands are a great way to add a fun vibe to your outfit or accessorize your look. They are also a great way to keep people from noticing how flat your hair is, or that you didn’t have time to wash it and had to throw it in a pony tail before running out the door. However, many headbands are too large or ostentatious to wear in certain environments (i.e. any type of office where the only kind of clothes that are appropriate to wear are super uncomfortable and have to be ironed on the reg). For those days where you absolutely need a headband to hide the flatness/unruliness/lack-of-cleanliness of your hair, or just want to wear a cute accessory to offset your more conservative outfit, try a headband with a thinner band and embellishments that lie relatively flat on the band. Stick to more neutral and muted colors, like this pale gold and navy headband with brassy/dark gold embellishments:
