How to Mix & Match Jewelry

Matched Jewelry Sets can be striking, but you don't always have to play it so safe.  Jewelry is a GREAT way to express yourself.  

so have fun! ... be creative!  Here are some tips on how to make it work.

Choose 1 piece to be the Focal Point

 If you're wearing a Statement Necklace, choose earrings that complement it without competing.  They don't even have to be made of the same material.  This sterling silver necklace looks fabulous with a pair of silver glass earrings.  The green glass is simple, but really adds a lot. The silver color and round shape bring it all together.

You’d be amazed by how much glass can resemble opals. This geometric glass pendant has a lot of the same colors as my inlaid opal bracelet. They go together beautifully!

Don’t wear more than 2 matched pieces at a time.

This is one of my favorite sets. I absolutely had to have all 3 pieces, but that doesn’t mean that I wear them all at once. It’s far more interesting to mix in a pair of glass earrings, or to wear the necklace and earrings with a tennis bracelet.

Is It OK To Mix Jewelry Metals???

Yes! You can wear silver and gold jewelry at the same time. Just do it in a way that looks intentional.

This vibrant  glass pendant  is finished with Sterling Silver, but the glass has warm gold tones. It would look fabulous with either silver or gold jewelry. No effort required.

Just pairing gold earrings with a silver necklace may look like an accident, but you can tie it together with a piece that has both colors. Wearing a gold bracelet with a silver watch is another way to do it. Complete the look by considering the hardware on your belt, bag and boots. This  dichroic glass pendant  will enhance your look no matter how you wear it!

Layering necklaces is HUGE right now. You can easily layer 2 or 3 necklaces of different lengths, but no need to stop there. If you really want to embrace a chic, boho look, pile on a few more. Either way, there’s a lot going on, so it’s easier on the eyes to stay in the same color family. The glass pendants and earrings pictured above are all available at my etsy shop.
