Monogrammed Tie Bars

Since school has started to pick up as finals near, I haven’t got a chance to post in awhile. Between scrambling to get everything together for finals, having nightmares about the bar exam (which I don’t even take for another year…I guess while I may procrastinate, my subconscious and the nightmares it produces do not), and filling orders, my internet and social media presence for lakeshore lavaliere has been lacking. I also realized that the  lakeshore lavaliere men’s section is a little barren, and since the monogrammed tie clips with the spring have been so popular, I’ve decided to offer another style of tie clip, or rather, a tie bar. I have to give credit where credit is due, however, because the first (the ones with a spring will heretofore be referred to as tie clips, and the ones without springs will be tie bars… maybe that’s what it is supposed to be, but I’ve seen both referred to by both names online and it’s confusing…so…there.)  tie bar came to me as a custom order from my friend and [lakeshore lavaliere spokesmodel 😉 ]  Erik Kabe. It looked so sharp (yep, I’m 90) on him, that I  decided that I should continue to offer the monogrammed tie bar as an option!

Monogrammed Tie Bar

Erik’s is in the traditional monogram style (which I love here), and I used Arial font for his first and middle initials (E & A), and the larger Seymour font for the K. There are also other font and style options by request!

Hand-Stamped Personalized Ring

Monogrammed jewelry is a great way to give a personal gift for any occasion- or for no occasion at all like this lakeshore lavaliere gold tone hand-stamped brass ring:

This hand stamped gold tone brass ring was a gift for my roommate, who is also the lovely hand model you see in the pictures below. After stamping the blank with her initials, I used the oxidation process that I mentioned in my last post to really make sure the letters were a nice and dark contrast to the rest of the blank. Then, I punched two holes to slip the wire through in order to anchor the blank to the wire ring base & added a metal & jewelry adhesive as well to create a firmer hold. I made the ring’s base from gold tone non-tarnish copper 18-gauge wire, which is definitely the wire I prefer to work with because it doesn’t nick every time you touch it with a tool like most other jewelry/craft wires.

I’ve always loved all things monogrammed, and this ring was a fun way to be able to give a gift to the girl who is bravely entering her third year of sharing a residence with me. Next up: a ring for my other roommate.

These rings are available in any size, in silver, and can be personalized with anyone’s initials (or a word or name as long as it is short enough to fit on the blank!)

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,
