See what beauty vlogger Victoria Lyn had to say about our Gold Steel Pan earrings that we gifted to her along with other artisans from The Artisan Group.
The MTV Movie Awards aired this past weekend. Hopefully, you got a chance to watch if not don’t worry I’m sure it’ll be airing all week long 🙂 . Check out the 19 Sexy, Scandalous and Unforgettable moments of the show, some of them are pretty funny. This year The Pink Locket was able to participate in a great opportunity. In association with The Artisan Group, The Pink Locket participated in an invitation-only luxury celebrity gift lounge hosted by GBK Productions on April 8-9, 2016 at an exclusive location in Los Angeles, California in honor of the MTV Movie Awards nominees and presenters. Select press and media attendees received the beautiful Elle gold cuff bracelet in their swag bags. How cool is that?! I’m still excited!
The Elle gold cuff bracelet is one of those transitional jewelry pieces that you can wear to the office then out to drinks with your girls or can even be worn to dress up a casual look. It’s very lightweight and durable, that you’ll never want to take it off. Not mention it makes a great gift!
Spring jewelry sale going on right now. If you see something you love snag it, because it’ll be the last time you see it. We’re making room for new collections and designs. Here’s a peek at some sale items, to view all sale items mosey on over to The Pink Locket store.
Happy Leap Day everyone! I’m back on schedule with Make It Monday. I decided to do something a little different this time. Today I’m going to give you a little peek at part of the design process of my Rough It Cuff. When I created back a few months ago, I posted a pic on my Facebook page and received so much great feedback, so I figured why not show a little background on what went into creating it. Just click the image below to see the video. Don’t forget you receive 30% off your first order when you sign up to my list.
I love surfing Pinterest to find new ways to help me with storing my jewelry. I think there is a general consensus that jewelry needs to be visually displayed in order for it to be worn. Think about it, the earrings or necklace that you see regularly are probably the ones that get worn most of the time. Then one day you clean out your jewelry drawers to find a “blast from the past”, low and behold you find that one bracelet you thought you’d lost. Here are my top four jewelry storage ideas that I love, hopefully you can incorporate them into your own jewelry storage.
The Regular Jewelry Box
This is my favorite for many reasons, one being it’s necessary to store your valuable jewelry pieces, like family heirloom jewelry, precious diamond earrings, you get the idea. This a really cute stackable one from Anthropologie . It’s a bit pricey, but you can find one that suits your taste and budget anywhere.
Jewelry dishes are storage items that you need in bulk. It’s great to have several since it’s easy to store rings and small earrings in. They even fit great in drawers. Check out this one from Paragraph Loop.
Chainlink Wall Storage
I saw this at Target one day and I thought it was such an easy, not to mention, unique decor way to showcase your jewelry. Plus it’s only $10!
Jewelry Cork Board
Cork boards are excellent ways to store and display necklaces. Ones that are nicely framed like this one from You Matter Designs will look great on your bedroom wall as well.
What makes jewelry unique is that you can style it however you like. Jewelry is one of those accessories that can make the most basic outfit look like a magazine glamour shot.
Here are some great ideas to help you style your own jewelry with your wardrobe.
Simple geometric shaped jewelry work well across various styles. Here are a pair of bangles that accent a business attire look. Looks simple beautiful and classic.
A perfect way to pair a statement ring with stacking gold bangles pulled off with basic denim and a blazer.
This is a perfect way to layer necklaces. Start with a choker, then choose a mid length chain piece and finish off with a longer chain.
A great way to stack rings using two different types of metals. You can even play of this look using different texture metals like shiny, matte, polished or distressed.
TGIF, let’s make this weekend a stylish one. Check out my new collection The Arches in copper.
It’s shopping time! Today’s the official launch of The Arches Handmade Jewelry Collection, so mosey on over to my shop and shop till you drop. This is a mini collection so the quantities are limited. Happy Shopping.
Over the weekend I had a blast at a photo shoot for the collection with the talented Christina Simkovich, who did her thing modeling my creations, along with photographer Okieto Campbell (yes, being married to a photography has its benefits). Here’s a sneak peek at a couple of shots that I snagged with my iPhone.
Although my jewelry style is minimalistic, I was just telling a friend of mine the other day that coming up with jewelry designs can be challenging at times when I’m not in the right frame of mind. Many people ask where I get my inspiration from and to be honest there’s no one answer. If I had to narrow it down though I would definitely say I’m very inspired by other women’s personal style. There’s nothing more inspiring than seeing a woman wearing something in a completely different way than it was intended for. I think that’s why I love doing custom designs because it gives the customer a chance to help create something they have a vision for. One thing I do miss about living in NYC is walking down the street admiring the different street styles, the personal touches to one’s outfit, not to mention the “IDAF” I’m going to wear this however I want because that’s how I like it mentality, lol.
Many of the jewelry pieces I create are quite versatile and I do that on purpose because I believe that accessories definitely make the look more complete. Minimalistic style jewelry can be eye catching and simple and that it can transition from outfit to outfit. This is the main reason I work with metals.
For this collection I drew inspiration from the architecture of buildings and bridges. Have you ever just stopped and looked at the shapes and beauty of an actual building or bridge? I was particularly intrigued by the arches of bridges, which is where I drew most of my inspiration from. There’s just something completely amazing about the creation of these beauties.
