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.

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:
