Elizabeth Taylor once said, "Jewelry has the power to be the little thing that makes you feel unique."

What could be better than having a lovingly crafted, beautiful piece of your own collection to make you feel unique and fabulous during this cold winter and all through the year.  Wearing a piece, or pieces, of sparkle from an artisan like Stephanie at SWCreations will give you the chance to both feel unique and fabulous. When you buy a piece of handmade jewelry, you are not only getting a one-of-a-kind piece of art, you are supporting a small business.

One of the great fashion trends for 2021 is the statement necklace. We are all spending a lot of time on zoom meetings or wearing a mask. Pearls, beaded necklaces, layered necklaces and pendants are a way to make you look and feel fabulous whether you are working from home or going in to the office. The statement necklace finishes your look.

Another fun trend to spice up your day is the dangly, beaded earrings. Pass on those boring hoops and show your style with some gorgeous pearl or lampwork earrings! The sparkle and craftsmanship will brighten any day. You can also add a pop of color to your look by stacking multi-colored beaded bracelets. Pair those bracelets with a statement necklace or your favorite earrings to achieve that signature look that is all you. One of the best new trends is to mix and match metals and gemstones. You no longer need to go all silver or all gold or all pearls and no gems. Mix them up, wear them together and make your look edgier.

Jewelry is such a fun way to express your individuality. Choosing jewelry pieces to finish off an outfit is a great way to plan your own special look. I love to lay an outfit out on the bed and then find the best necklace, earrings, and bracelets to make the styling complete. The layering trend is great for those of us who cannot make a decision. Sometimes, I just wear them all! Elizabeth Taylor would. Whether you are a minimalist or take a glitterier approach to jewelry, it is certainly a way to show your personal flair and make you feel fabulous. It's a new year, let's all be fabulous in fashion, in life, and in kindness to others.
