I am a big (big) fan of fun, funky, gaudy, chunky, bright colored, shiny, blingtastic jewelry.
I have at least 1-2 pieces of it to match almost every outfit, and I get it everywhere from jewelry stores to garage sales. Sometimes jewelry makes or breaks a look, and it can take an emsemble from drab to fab or casual to elegant instantly.
I have been making my own jewelry since grade school, and though I don't make it as often as I used to, I still get the occasional itch to whip something up. Lately, I have been making bracelets out of lace, ribbon, buttons and random odds & ends. They range from elegant to funky, and I am loving them.
Here is a pic of my latest (and current fave) one.
