While bright colours might be all the rage this summer- there is something about the contrasts that I love! Cool contrasts make for a lively addition when it comes to accessorising! Opposites really do attract and could come in all sorts of guises along with the traditional black and white. Contrasts work well with texture too, the rough against the smooth is just as effective a feature when it comes to jewellery. It’s these qualities that I strive to create in the gems at Fruttituttibeadcandy, take a look here…
Black and white is a timeless combination- put simply- it will never go out of fashion! Although variations of this colour trend can work well too, take this black and pearly grey necklace. The black beads effortlessly link in with the lighter shades to create it’s showstopping effect. It’s one of those necklaces that wil stand the test of time and can be worn with practically anything in one’s wardrobe. These monochrome jewels are a must have for any chic jewellery collection.
It’s not just the opposites found in colour that make a serious style splash- it’s the materials too. Here I used the deep rich tones of a copper red against the cool ones of turquoise as a contrast. One of the many beauties of copper is that it is ever changing, with time it’s surface texture will change from a fiery red to a light green, tarnished also with deep browns. These colour changes will sit against the unchanging azure blues of the turquoise stones as the piece ages. Along with a feel of ancient times, this is a jewel that will provoke admiration as well as conversation.
The contrast here can be found in the colour of the beads themselves: Pinks, the brightest of yellows as well as a deep unforgiving black make this choker one to remember. Team it with a fun and dynamic out fit for a quirky take on an evening outfit. Want a different choice if colour? Get in touch for a customised polymer clay bead necklace or bracelet.
