|I don’t know about you, but I’m an “over-the-top-funky-chunky” kind of jewelry designer. I love textures, 3-dimensional surprises, mixed media, big baubles, and bling. Having had years of experience selling my creations at shows (L.A. Gift show, Buyer’s Market of American Craft, Quilt Market & Fest, to name a few of the biggies) and online, I’ve heard every type of customer comment you can imagine, kind and not so kind! One of the more commonly heard comment is “Oh, I simply could not wear THAT to work, it’s too much.” While the “more is better” design style is hot in my book, I realize not everyone enjoys a neck full of baubles, so I came up with a way to customize a necklace design to please everyone! Join me in creating a new look.|
Simple strand for simple tastes
Wearing a simple strand comes in handy and is definitely more “wearable” for work or playing on the weekends. I throw in a mixture of metal colors so my necklace will go with silver, copper, and gold. That way I don’t have to worry about matching my accessories.
