Creating jewelry is a unique way to put your own special stamp on your wardrobe. You can create one of a kind pieces, that can match your specific needs. If you’re going to create jewelry though, you need to do it right. In this article we will discuss some specific tips for creating unique and custom pieces of jewelry.
If you have a light ivory skin tone with darker hair, consider purchasing jewelry in silver, white gold or platinum. The silvery colors look elegant set against an ivory skin tone especially if you have brown or black hair. Make sure to choose darker gemstones such as green, black or deep blue.
Making hemp jewelry can be fun for you and your friends. Sometimes the hemp can get a little fuzzy when stored for a long time. A good way to combat the fuzzy look of hemp is to melt a wee bit of wax and smear it over the hemp before you tie it.
Buying earrings that are made out of gold or silver can ensure that one will not get an ear infection or reaction from the jewelery. These metals will be better for your ears and also be better quality jewelery for one to wear. Gold or silver earrings can be a good choice.
When buying jewelry, pick jewelry that will go good with the majority of your wardrobe. If you spend hundreds of dollars on an amazing piece of jewelry, you will want to be wearing it any chance you get. Consider foregoing a more expensive piece in favor of one that you could wear more often.
Gems and precious stones are a more affordable and colorful option than diamonds and can be found in gorgeous rings, bracelets, and earrings. There are three options for buyer: natural, synthetic, or imitation. Synthetic emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and amethysts are the best bet. They are of comparable quality to natural stones, with the only difference being that they are grown in a laboratory.
Jewelry that is made with milky, iridescent, and elegant opals requires a light touch when it comes to cleaning. Do not expose the stones to hot water, steam, or ultrasonic cleaners as extreme heat can easily damage the surface of the stone. Instead, rings, necklaces, and bracelets that feature opals should be cleaned with a soft cloth after a brief soak in cool water.
For the holidays, dress up a plain pair of solid colored pumps with a set of vintage earrings. Just attach them to the front of the “throat” of the shoe – just above the toe. This will give your party shoes a little bit of holiday sparkle and flair.
When photographing jewelry, lighting is key. By now you know that your camera’s onboard flash is horrible. Too harsh, too bright for close distances, is impossible to previsualize and is likely in the wrong place. For jewelry, use continuous, diffuse (soft) lighting on stands. Photographic daylight-balanced fluorescents are recommended as they remain cool. Note that even those fluorescents will need some kind of diffusion.
