I love wearing jewelry and necklaces are an essential part of my style statement.  Sometimes I wear a single necklace and other times I layer several together for a more eclectic look.

But from time to time I’m faced with a necklace challenge…What’s the right necklace length?

One is good but two is better.  That’s my philosophy when it comes to jewelry.  I love buying it, wearing it and even decorating with it.  Just when I thought I might go a few months without buying a new piece of jewelry I did some research on the 2014 Jewelry Trends and now I’ve got the buying bug again.  Take a look at what’s going to be hot for 2014 and let me know what your favorite trend is.

Beautiful Beads and Crystals (yes, please)

Last year it was the Owl. This year the icon of the fall and holiday season is the FOX!  Target made a big statement with fox merchandise for the holiday season and it seems to be selling quickly.  Hum, wonder if it has anything to do what that song that is topping the music charts?

I happen to love all the fox products the stores are selling but wondered what great hand-made or vintage fox items we available on Etsy.  So, I do what I do best and went shopping for you.  I rounded up my favorite fox themed items and are bringing them to you in the first of my Holiday Gift Guides!
Enjoy and stay foxy!

Good Morning!  I hope you weekend was super.  Mine was great and I got lots done around my abode and even squeezed in a little outdoor time. Did you feel the change in the air? I surely did and can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to fall arriving in full force.  One of the things that I’m most looking forward to is adding a few new pieces of jewelry to my fall wardrobe. I’ve seen such fabulous looks in all the fashion magazine and it has me in the mood to shop.  Good thing one of the items on my to-do-list this week is a trip to the gift mart.  Just so happens that on the 7th floor of building 3 there lies an enormous showroom full of on-trend fashion jewelry. I wish I could take pictures of the showroom to share with you but it is strictly forbidden.  But I can share a look at three fall fashion trends I’ll be on the hunt for, Bold, Bling and Bodacious!

Gone are the days when a simple chain necklace was the accessory of choice.  The trend in jewelry has shifted to “more is better” and “bigger is best”.  In 2013 it’s all about statement necklaces, bold bangles, multiple pieces and lots of layering.  Sound like an easy look to pull together?  Well, I’ve seen many a woman try to pull off this look with no luck.  There’s an art to layering all those beautiful necklaces and bracelets you’re seeing in stores and on-line and I’m here to share a few styling tips with you, so you can layer your jewelry with confidence.
