Jewellery for an occasion

As someone who mainly wears jeans and black clothes, I find it so hard to dress up for occasions such as weddings and smart events. I usually head to a vintage shop to see what I can find, and tend to wear black on most occasions, even on my own wedding day (just call me Morticia Addams). The one thing I never find difficult is deciding which piece of jewellery to wear and I often find that the main element to dressing an outfit up or down is jewellery. It is something I have done for years....just add some hoops and a pendant to a casual day outfit and it can be transformed.

 When Sarika and I were discussing this post we decided to show two looks; one with a vintage dress and the other with a cami-top / blazer but both worn with my more petite pendants.

Reversible Lioness Pendant

The beauty of this pendant is that it can be worn either way, the large flower on the back is a bigger version of the flowers in the Lioness's mane.

Lioness Drop Pendant

The drop coin pendant is one of my more elegant pieces, it works really well on an open neckline. I tend to wear this one on its own but I saw it layered on one of my customers and I really liked the way it looked, so Sarika has shown it worn both ways. I enjoy mixing my pieces with vintage finds. I found a stunning bracelet at Malvern Flea market, not an everyday piece but I wear it on special occasions and love the eclectic mix of old and new. I take a lot of inspiration from vintage treasures so it seems very fitting.
