I like statement makers. On the sleek side.
That is why I am drawn to this large root cuff by Jennifer Fisher. Cast from polished gold-plated brass, this flexible piece can be worn on the wrist or upper arm.
Jennifer's pieces are uniquely bold, created out of her own personal style necessity in 2005. A California native and former wardrobe stylist, Jennifer was searching for a piece of jewelry that not only spelled her first child's name, but also expressed her personal style. Lucky for us, she was unable to find anything which forced her to design something. And when friends, family and even strangers requested their own piece specially designed by Jennifer, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry was born.

There is another side to my simple self. You know, the one that loves a little drama from time to time — whether it be in accessories or clothing.
In this case, it's in the form of a necklace by Devon Leigh.
The mix of wide link chain, faceted aquamarine beads and the carved cross pendant makes this piece special and interesting. Well traveled.
Devon Leigh features one-of-a-kind edgy designs that create a stir. Winner of the Dallas Fashion Award and Rising Star Award nominee, this Los Angeles native combines a modern mix of natural semiprecious stones and rich metals. Her work is continually evolving, showcasing pieces that reflect her vision.
Pair this with a basic foundation and level up your style.

If you've seen me in the last year and a half, you know that I haven't changed out my earrings. Call it lazy; but I call it ease. Just like this go-with-everything pair of triangle safety pin earrings in 14K gold by Loren Stewart. Definitely up my alley.

If you happened to follow my recent family vacation, you know that I am starting over with jewelry. I needed space for a couple months. However, I do believe I am ready to venture out.
My husband and I went to look at rings last weekend. We have very different thoughts on what this new beginning should look like. I am all about minimal bands. He is all about the solitaire diamond (with the bands).
One thing is for certain, neither of us were prepared to throw caution to the wind when our friend, Jennifer, whipped out a rockstar diamond pinky ring. Whoa! Who knew I would fall for such a piece. Without hesitation we were all in. Hey, this can count as the solitaire, right?
We left elated with our crazy impulsive tiny bling ring, and with the bands to come. He wants to add the solitaire down the road, but honestly, I think in time I will convince him otherwise. What we landed on is perfect.
It doesn't take much to make a statement, if done in the right way. What I call tiny but mighty pieces. Like the gold/diamond Fusion Interstellar ring by Astley Clarke. Gorgeous goodness that doesn't have to hit you over the head to get noticed.

Though, I still only gravitate toward the simple, elegant ones.
The latest trend is a bit much for me. However, there are many styles to choose from — black ribbon, ornate, funky. Something for everybody.
I happen to dig this combo piece. Stella McCartney designed this for a layered look. Made from polished gold-plated brass, it has a curved choker that's attached to a delicate long chain. You can adjust the fastening to suit both high or low necklines.
