Are you a jewelry lover? If so, you know that every season is a new opportunity to find trends you love to go along with your favorite fashions. Still, there are some staples that are must-haves for every jewelry collector. Those staples will take you through the seasons and become irreplaceable, timeless pieces to be cherished for generations.
Whether you are updating your jewelry box to include the essentials you’re missing, or simply searching for the perfect gift for a loved one, this weekend’s 11th Annual Coral Springs Festival of Arts is the ideal place to find beautiful handcrafted jewelry basics. This arts and crafts show will feature some of the most gifted jewelry crafters in the U.S.
So, what are some basic pieces that every jewelry aficionado should have in their box?
Earrings. Every woman should have a few key pairs of earrings. Studs, both crystal and pearl, are great additions any wardrobe. Some dangling pairs add a touch of fun and elegance, depending on shape, size and materials. For a great variety of earring choices, be sure to visit Diana and Ted Damiano of Sun Metal Jewelry.
Necklaces. For those who love jewelry, necklaces are pretty much a no-brainer. From casual to formal, necklaces in a variety of styles and colors can add vibrancy and pop to any outfit. If you’re looking for a fun, everyday wear, be sure to visit Paula Padilla and Patricia Gonzales of Color Creations. For a dressy, colorful addition to your wardrobe, visit Robert Ramaglia of Ye Olde Silversmith.
Bracelets. The jewelry worn on your arms is as important as the jewelry worn on the upper half of your body. Sometimes, a beautiful bracelet is all you need to accentuate your ensemble. Do you enjoy simple, clean designs? Al Mandelaro of Mia Creations has a wide selection of lovely bracelets in many styles. Check out Mia Creations’ personalized options as well! They make for unique additions to your collection.
Rings. What look would be complete without the potential addition of a ring on your finger? Rings can be delicate or lively, subtle or loud. Whatever your preference, you should always keep at least a couple in your jewelry collection. MaryEllen Lanigan and David George of Samariza Jewelry Design have a wonderful collection of rings on hand for you to choose from. Be sure to check them out this Saturday and Sunday.
