Layering Jewelry

If you are bored with the chains you wear day in and day out or you are just looking for a new look, try jewelry layering. The layered look can be achieved by simply going through your jewelry box and picking out thin chains in gold or silver. Once you have chosen a few pieces, lay them together, and try and match the chains lengths and textures.

Once you managed to match at least three chains, lace through some delicate pendants. The pendants you choose would depend on the type of look you are going for. For example, if you prefer a soft simple look you could lace pendants like stars, moon, and suns or if you want a look that is similar to a charmed bracelet, you could add pendants like keys, teddy bears, or angels.

When selecting your chains, remember to stick with gold or silver, and try not to match the two. Make sure you stay away from metal coloured chains to avoid a cheap, tacky look. You can even achieve this look by layering your bracelets. Just make sure you follow the same steps mentioned above. If you are in a hurry, just wrap a few chains around your wrist, it will give you a very similar look.

Many jewelry designers have now created layered jewelry by linking a number of chains together using a fastener. Example of these are Tiffany’s, Saks and Macy’s, but if you are on a budget try browsing at your local imitation jewelry store, and you might be surprised at what you may find.
