I know, I know this is a bold statement, but let me explain. As I stand in my ocean view Art Shanty every summer and a beautiful happy group of ladies browse my gemstone jewelry, I inevitably hear from one "Oh if only I had somewhere to wear these gorgeous pieces." I call bull right here,lol
For a very long time we have all been made to believe that jewelry should be a reflection of the event we are participating in, for example there is what we call work attire accessories, wedding accessories, going to kids events accessories, everyday accessories and so on. Now although I wouldn't wear super fancy or expensive piece of jewelry to the gym it isn't because of the style, it's because of the damage that can happen from your sweat and the comfort on your body as you move.
I am a firm believer in the theory that you can wear jewelry that makes you feel amazing and special any old time you want. You are the most special occasion and reason there is to wear unique bold pendants to celebrate. It's just like that gorgeous dinner wear we all got on our wedding registry that sits in a closet only to be taken out on holidays for our guests enjoyment. I say NO, use those dishes every dang day for your enjoyment, you deserve it!
So if you have a gorgeous piece of jewelry that you only wear for special occasions, or you see a unique piece of artisan jewelry you feel drawn to, I challenge you to wear it, buy it, celebrate you and just listen for all those compliments and see how amazing you feel!
I am a self taught jewelry artist and designer. My blog is the door to all the new things I learn, the stones I use and love, the pieces I created and the events I participate in as well as my thoughts and ramblings along this journey. I hope you enjoy the ride with me.
