Handmade Multi Chain Statement Necklaces

Handmade Multi Chain Statement Necklaces

Statement necklaces are still very much in style this year and you will be seeing more gunmetal, multi chain necklaces  and even necklaces using safety pins. This multi chain necklace above has a casual but elegant feel; the chains seem to drape effortlessly with a sparkle of rhinestones and crystals. It could go with that little black dress or with a t-shirt and blazer.  My statement necklaces are all one of a kind so you will not see these on anyone else! I use some aluminum chain to lighten them up for comfort.  I love the look of dark  gunmetal jewelry, it gives a more edgy look even to a vintage flower:

If you like something less dark, try pastel chain! This multi-chain statement necklace below is made from colorful aluminum chain in light green and lavender with vintage gold plated chain, safety pins and Swarovski crystals with matching earrings:

These multi chain statement necklaces can add a big pop to your spring wardrobe! They are made from part of a vintage chain link necklace that looks like petals; I hand painted fuchsia and turquoise and added colorful aluminum chain:

Repurposed Vintage Bead Dangle Earrings

I love collecting cool beads especially interesting vintage beads to make dangling earrings. The Vintage Inspired Passionista above is wearing retro style  baubles with vintage black Baroque beads and gunmetal chain. These beads have a fabulous, colorful iridescent sheen and are some my favorites. None of my unique handmade earrings are mass produced and since they are made from rare beads, they are limited in quantity so you shouldn’t see anyone else wearing them! That also means if you see something you like, you better get it while you can!

Statement Earrings, Lightweight and Easy to Wear

Statement Earrings, Lightweight and Easy to Wear

Statement earrings are hot for 2015, from tassel earrings to asymmetrical earrings, the bigger the earring, the better! Since I have sensitive ears, most of my earrings are lightweight and comfortable to wear. For super sensitive ears I can change most ear wires to surgical steel. I hand paint lightweight filigree discs for a splash of color above. Lightweight wood discs or beads are used in a lot of my earrings as in these larger bold animal print earrings :

A necklace statement doesn’t need to be big either, beautiful simplicity can really grab attention as in this cute little upcycled tie necklace or mandala pendant below:
