Runway Fashion Vs Real World

Runway Fashion Vs Real World

Runway fashion vs real world. As a jewelry designer I like to get ideas from the runway, as crazy as they are and interpret them for the real world! I love bright colors and this clown-like photo from Armani Prive Spring 2019 Couture Show was the inspiration:

Below is my version with my red and blue poppy statement necklace and a flattering form fitting blue dress to make the necklace pop! Slim blue denim earrings blend with the dress, plain but elegant shoes in nude for a classy look! Keep it simple when wearing a statement necklace! I suggest a bright red clutch to go with:

Ocean Inspired Jewelry Accessories For Your Beach Vacation or Cruise

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

September is my favorite time to visit ocean beaches. This year we have a trip planned for the Oregon Coast, near Tillamook in the Three Capes area.  The crowds are gone but the weather is great for outdoor activities.  I will bring a pair of my starfish earrings to wear!  Most of my ocean inspiration comes from our weekly walks near Seattle or up north near the Bellingham coast along Puget Sound. This new handmade collection of ocean inspired jewelry can be worn anywhere from the Pacific Northwest to the tropics! The necklaces are recycled from plastic Priority mail envelopes that have been painted then heated to form interesting organic textures, they are lightweight and fun to wear!

2018 Jewelry Trends: Asymmetrical and Chunky Chains

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

As an artist I have always loved asymmetrical jewelry and mismatched earrings. The challenge here is taking ideas from New York Fashion Week, as seen in Glowsly, and making jewelry that is wearable for everyday or comfortable enough to wear out!  For mismatched earrings, you don’t even have to buy new pieces just find earrings that have similar colors or textures. Maybe you have a pearl stud, try mixing it with a tassel dangle! If you want something new check out my latest earrings in gold, gunmetal and silver:

As a designer, I like to watch trends like you see at New York Fashion Week.  I love the challenge of trying to make something similar that would be better suited for normal life!  These lightweight aluminum silver chain tassel earrings ( below) do just that, you can wear them all day long and into the night with comfort and show stopping style! Tassels are always in style but they are super hot for 2018-19.

How to Pick the Right Color Jewelry for Your Skin Tone

How to Pick the Right Color Jewelry for Your Skin Tone

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

There are no hard rules for what metals to wear with certain skin tones, I suggest wearing what you like best! Don’t be afraid to mix metals for a more modern, updated look also! Look at the veins on your wrist, if they are greenish, your have a warm skin tone, if blue you have a cool tone, if  you have a combination, you have a neutral skin tone.   Warmer, olive skin tones may look better with gold or brass, cooler toned people tend to look better with silver, white gold or even gunmetal.  Some of us with a more neutral skin tone can wear anything but it depends on hair color and outfit color too so don’t be afraid to experiment! Rose gold or copper can look great on anyone!

BluKatDesign is known for vibrant colorful jewelry but you can find gold, brass, silver, gunmetal and even copper jewelry that will go with anything in your wardrobe. You can use navy as in my line of denim jewelry as a neutral or even blue and green can work as a neutral color also.

How To Wear Upcycled Vintage Jewelry For A Modern Look

How To Wear Upcycled Vintage Jewelry For A Modern Look

by BluKatDesign on Etsy

Do you love vintage jewelry but don’t know what to wear with it? BluKatDesign is known for upcycled jewelry. Some of the first upcycles I did were repurposed vintage jewelry that were remade into one-of-a-kind statement necklaces. The necklaces in the first four photos are sold but this will give you an idea of what to wear with your jewelry from BluKatDesign.  For a modern, everyday look,  I like clean classic lines and solids to accent the necklace; nothing too fancy because I like to be comfortable!  Of course, these pieces would look great dressed up with any vintage or modern style fashion! These sets were created on the fashion site, Polyvore but sadly this site was bought out by a clothing line so I wanted to share these sets here with you.

The festive colors of Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead always inspires me!
