Mixed Metals

Now that I have come clean about my avid affection for second hand treasures, I think it would be a mistake not to share an example of my hodgepodge collection in action. My theory of “matching” is pretty loose…proportion, texture, and color guide most of my decisions. And in regards to jewelry, I love to layer!

My advice to the hesitant mixer? Just give it a try! As I’ve done today with my wrist accessories, play around with chunky bands and skinny bangles, slinky bracelets and shapely cuffs…jeweled, painted, engraved, or embossed…you never know if it will work until you try. (And don’t worry about the gold and silver taboo…they are actually a lovely contrasting complement to one another).

Now, are you ready to give it a try? Don’t forget to come back here and let me know how it goes!!

  1. I remember that charm bracelet! Brings back memories from my childhood. My mother got some of those charms in Europe and through her travels.
