Everyday Necklaces

I like pairing my jewelry with the clothes I wear everyday. 

Well, not exactly pairing per se.  I just like wearing accessories to complete the whole ensemble.  They may not be in the same color family or theme but they should at least complement or highlight the look I am going for.

However, one cannot buy every and all kinds of jewelry! And knowing us, girls, with the way we love buying clothes, there should at least be that versatile piece of accessory to fit all kinds of look.

This dilemma can only be solved by affordable but elegant and timeless pieces that you can change everyday! 

Thus, I created the “Everyday”  Necklace. 

Wear it with your business suit, your casual outfit, or even your evening dress.  Pair it with a collared top and jeans during dress down days.  The versatility of the necklaces are enhanced by their unique designs.  Subtle but creative.  Semi precious gemstones, South Sea shell pearls, freshwater pearls, faceted Austrian crystals and more wire wrapped in 14k gold filled (rolled gold).  They hang from dainty chains that glimmer as they “disappear” into your skin.  A little twist and a little turn here or there, wait for the chain to catch the light and give out that sparkle.

The J. Pedreria for ClassicSparklers Everyday Necklace Collection is now available here.

Now for some eye candy 🙂

New Listings

Birthday celebrations and a hectic work schedule has taken me off this blog for some time now.  This week we are celebrating a long weekend: 4 days of no work! First, there’s the real weekend, Saturday and Sunday, and then August 29 we will be celebrating our National Hero’s Day and another national holiday on the 30th to mark the end of Ramadan.

Because of this, I started to keep busy again with these new listings now posted in my shop:

VAMPIRE: Very dainty natural red coral beads and a large faceted Austrian crystal briolette all wrapped in 14k gold

MERMAID: An ethereal mix of turquoise, chalcedony and freshwater pearls wire wrapped in 14k gold.  They hang from gorgeous baby blue cubic zirconia in 14k bezel setting.

ENCHANTING FOREST: deep green jasper embraced in 14k gold and hangs from midnight faceted Austrian crystals.

RUBY: Are you the type who love changing your jewelry according to what you wear?  This this design is the right one for you! Red rubellite natural gemstones in 14k gold.

The Classic Pearl

I’ve always considered the Pearl to be the most elegant and classic piece to work with.  That is the reason why I always name my pieces “The Classic Pearl”.  Pearls are timeless and versatile.  They can be worn during any occasion without the wearer looking over accessorized or under accessorized.

I first started using pearls last year.  Specifically, I opted for the freshwater pearl because it was much cheaper than the South Sea pearls.  I started off with simple designs to test the market and they were a hit! I decided on the regular wire wrap because aside from it being easy to construct, I believed that it was simple and elegant enough to match the focal piece, which is the pearl.

Fast forward to today.

The royal wedding draws near and the internet is flooded with photos of the royal couple, particularly the soon to be princess, Kate Middleton.  During one of my surfing, I found several photos which took my breath away.  The earrings she wore often were an uncanny resemblance to the classic pearl earrings I made last year!! Not only that, she wore another pair of earrings that was also similar to the citrine earrings also from the same collection!!

No, my friends, I did not make those that she was wearing (although I wish that one day she will carry one of my pieces…:). In my excitement, I have made a collage that emphasizes what I have just said.

Here is a photo of the faceted Austrian crystal earrings in citrine gold wire wrapped in sterling silver and another one wire wrapped in argentium wire:

Here is the collage/the photos of “The Classic Pearl” earrings made from freshwater pearls wire wrapped in 10k solid gold wire:

These two earrings were from my 2010 Collection.  I still make them now although I have upgraded into South Sea shell pearls.
