How to Layer for the Holidays


especially around the holidays, more is MORE!!! now is the time to layer on the jewels.  you can dress up a simple black tee with an extra necklace or too and be cocktail party ready!  we believe that jewelry style is one of the best ways to amp up your wardrobe. 

Necklace Stack

whether you start with your shortest layer, or your longest, here are some helpful tips:

one with dangles, or charms. this will be sure to add movement to your neckmess

one wire wrapped, or chain linked necklace.  this thin out your layers and add texture

one strung on beading wire.  this will add a draped feeling to your neckmess

most importantly, have fun!  the rules are that there aren't any rules, so pile them on and wear them with confidence.
