Three Ways To Wear A Long Necklace This Fall

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

 

 

Long necklaces are a must-have for fall! One way to update your look is with a long necklace by BluKatDesign on Etsy! All necklaces are unique, one-of-a-kind, upcycled, eco-friendly, and  handmade in USA.  Here are three ways to wear a long necklace:

 

  1. Wear a long necklace with a cardigan, perfect for the transition of summer into fall! Cardigans are slimming plus a long necklace will make you look taller with the vertical lines! Check out the long upcycled wine cork and key necklaces, click on photos to take you to BluKatDesign on Etsy. To see other items in the photo collages, check out my URSTYLE page for the details!

These are available in glass, ceramic or wood like this wooden knob upcycled from a drawer!

Egyptian style is trending this spring, Click on photo above to see more Egyptian styles from Fashion Week. Look for Egyptian style motifs like ankhs, snakes and wings are just some of the few. Pair gold accessories with a little black dress for a classy, modern take on the Egyptian theme. A gold bobby pin necklace from BluKatDesign would make a great conversation starter:

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 :
