Bauble Alert: Cosmic Thread

Cosmic Thread is bringing handmade geometric shaped jewelry to another level. I discovered them during MAGIC’s Pool Tradeshow and instantly was in awe. You might have seen these photos in a previous post. The designers are two sisters, Taryn and Megan, from Colorado. I really admire unique and creative jewelry like this. 

The collection experiments with the fusion of synthetic and reclaimed organic materialsinto highly conceptual designs. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted with a forward thinking focus on the future,manifesting the inspiration of space into wearable geometry.

New Year’s Eve Necklace Inspiration

It doesn’t have to sparkle, but it does have to stand out. When it comes to my New Year’s Eve jewelry, I always lean towards statement pieces. There’s just something about jewelry that does the talking for you. It’s an easy way to dress up a simply chic dress or a way to add a lot of drama to any cocktail dress. Don’t be afraid! Be bold and daring!
