Classy for Spring

March 6, 2014

I love jade! It’s one of my favourite gemstones and the mountain jade comes in so many colours that isn’t so hard to pick one! It is actually a dolomite marble commonly referred to as “mountain jade“, a lovely gemstone with a subtle internal shimmer that naturally occurs in pink, white or gray but is commonly enhanced to reflect every colour of the rainbow. Mountain jade lore suggests the gem alleviates sorrow and encourages original ideas. I think all gemstones are versatile and certainly the jade gemstone is one of them.

We all love colours – green, yellow, red, purple – living in such a gray environment and seeing the sun only every now and then it is very important to mix and match the colours in our outfits.

I started playing with Polyvore not so long ago. It’s a lot of fun to pick a piece of jewellery and build an outfit around it.

Today I chose to build an outfit around a lavender jade bracelet. I found it to be very feminine, with small lavender printed flowers on porcelain beads. Porcelain also gives it a superior feeling, we all know how nicely presented porcelain is and that is well known to be expensive. A sign of royalty. (more…)

Jewellery for men

February 28, 2014

IMG_0034We all think that it is normal when women wear jewellery, but what is wrong when men do it?

Jewellery has long been used to denote status. In ancient Rome, for instance, only certain ranks could wear rings and later consumption laws dictated who could wear what type of jewellery, again based on rank.

Necklaces have been an integral part of jewellery since the time of ancient civilizations and pre-date the invention of writing. Necklaces are believed to be as old as 40,000 years, during the Stone Age. The oldest necklaces were made of purely natural materials – before weaving and the invention of string, durable vines or pieces of animal tendon left over from hunts were tied together and adorned with shells, bones or teeth or colourful skins of human prey animals, bird feathers, corals, carved pieces of wood, colourful seeds or stones or naturally occurring gems, or other beautiful or artful natural elements found nearby.

Matching Pieces Of Jewellery

February 19, 2014

At first I beaded for myself, then for friends and family because everyone approved of my “talents” I decided to sell my work. Of course sometimes I keep some pieces for myself, the ones I fall in love with and I know I can’t do without! It is mostly bracelets but also a very lovely necklace I made especially for myself from Mookaite Jasper. I try to accessorize my dresses with my own pieces of jewellery and I sometime spend time shopping for a dress that might match one of my bracelets. I know it should be the other way around! But who cares :)

I’ve used Polyvore to put together a couple of outfits. One is a nice cozy outfit for a rainy day that can bring the smile to your face and the other one is the perfect outfit to wear for lunch out with the girls. The jewellery is so versatile that it fits in both situations perfectly! (more…)

A short story about jewellery

February 14, 2014

Turquoise BraceletWe all wear jewellery, but did we ever ask ourselves where does it come from?

Jewellery is one of the world’s oldest types of archeological artefact – with 100,000-year-old beads made from Nassarius shells thought to be the oldest known jewellery. Of course we can all imagine how our ancestors were wearing different types of jewellery. It didn’t matter if they were Mesopotamians, Greeks, Romans or Egyptians they were wearing jewellery which depicted their status.¬†Jewellery was very popular in Ancient Egypt, no matter the social class.The Egyptians preferred the luxurious and rarest metals and stones.¬†Both men and women adorned themselves with earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces and neck collars that were brightly colored. Greeks mastered the use of emeralds, amethyst and pearls in their jewellery together with gold, making them colorful and more attractive. Those who could not afford jewellery made from gold or other stones would make their jewellery from colored pottery beads. (more…)
