The hunt is on – Accessories.

5 Jul

What girl doesn’t love to accessorise? The maker or breaker of an outfit, the icing on the cake…choosing the right accessories is no small feat. My indecisiveness is my Achilles’s Heal. I love too many of my beaded beauties, each uniquely different and each bringing their own element and edge to an outfit.

The only saving grace in this dilemma is the defined colour palette i’m dealing with, everything in my collection that isn’t Silver, Turquoise, Teal or Pearls is out of the question for actual day, but for the rest of the days either side of the wedding I am sure one or two more will slip into the suitcase…

So now I am officially on wedding countdown… I have until July 29th to get every little detail perfected, without further adieu here is my selection of accessories to choose from.

Normally I like to stay rather minimal with jewellery. I will go with a necklace alone or an earring/bracelet combo. Even though the occasion calls for a casual edge I still want to look my best. I am very into my ‘ethnic and tribal style’ jewellery when it comes to the turquoise scene. Having said that I love the delicate and dainty too! I adore these pieces that I have purchased over the years, memories attached to each of them. My eye is always on the lookout for a bit of sparkle..must be the magpie in me (I blame my mum for that)…

My little genuine Turquoise beads, bought from a boutique jewellers in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter on my twentieth birthday, I do not wear these as much as i’d like. This costume jewellery cuff with filigree detailing and teal enameling is right up my street and was a treasured discovery from a car boot sale. I am a sucker for second hand shops and car boot sales for bargins, the thrify side to me!

A genuine Turquoise pendant on  a round silver wire I think is beautifully elegant and simplistic which I bought from Woolacome in Devon in a pasty shop believe it or not. The handmade spiral bead necklace is a casual piece I love, a little wooden button to clasp it and all for £1 at a local market.

Below are some potential accessory combinations, let me know what you prefer! Help me pick!

    The drop earrings are gorgeous! I think I’d wear them with the selection of small silver bangles and a silver watch. My favourite of your combos is the earrings with the big silver and blue bangle.
