Make a Statement

Let’s be real people, jewelry is SO important. It a way for people to express their unique style and personalize outfits. Something that I find super cool about jewelry is that each and every piece can hold significant meaning to someone. The meaning behind a necklace, ring, or bracelet is what makes it so special, and it is a tangible object that can last forever. Or, jewelry can simply be something that you saw at a store and decided to buy¬†because you liked the design. Regardless, jewelry allows you to make a statement and let out your inner creativity.

One of my roommates, Sarah Formato, has mad style when it comes to jewelry. Let’s take a closer look at some of her staples – a few she even hand-crafted herself!

Rings! The essential accessory. Rings can add a pop of color or a touch of class to an outfit. Sarah has a large assortment of rings- she loves turquoise or jeweled rings, simple gold bands, and those with little designs (like the sun on her left middle finger). Don’t her hands look so pretty?

This next necklace she made herself. Inspired by the brand Free People, it is a delicate velvet choker wrap. I think this necklace looks great paired with denim to create a bohemian vibe.

This silver statement piece definitely spices up any outfit!

This simple choker gives a bit of an edge to the clothes.

This one is my favorite, and it is also hand-made by Sarah and inspired by Free People. This dark choker can be worn many ways: with a basic outfit, for a night out, or paired with a cute dress for a day outing.

Hopefully this has inspired you to get creative with your jewelry!
