Thankful Thursday #58
I am so thankful for so many things everyday.
I am thankful there aren't so many rules with fashion and jewelry as there once was.
I grew up in Georgia and it was almost considered a sin to wear white after Labor Day. You just didn't do it. You were an embarrassment to your family if you didn't know better than that.
Just visualize women swooning and falling over fainting. That's what would happen to all of your female relatives and friends if you dared to show up in anything white after Labor Day.
Thank goodness for "Winter White." I think the fashion world had to come up with a name just so southern women would buy anything white for the forbidden months.
I also grew up being taught you don't mix metal. You either wore white gold or yellow gold. There was no mixing of the two. Seriously. If you got ready to buy a piece of jewelry for someone before you would ask for a ring size you would ask do they wear white gold or yellow gold.
Well, I am a good southern girl with a bit of a rebellious side and I never like to be told what to do.......SO.... without embarrassing my mama and daddy or giving any other relatives a hissy fit, thankfully, it is now stylish to mix metals.
I listed these two pairs of earrings in my shop. I am loving the look of long, stick earrings. They have such an elegant, classy look, but can also be worn with casual clothing. They show with long hair, but look particularly nice with an updo to show them off.
Long Sterling Silver Stick and 14k Gold Filled Earrings
Karen Hill Tribe Bar Spike Pendant Rose Gold Filled Earrings
I also listed these necklaces with my new He Loves Me Charm custom made from my original artwork and design.
Speaking of that rebellious side I was talking about..... I am thankful I have always been one to do my own thing. Making jewelry is so much fun and one of the biggest benefits is that you can make yourself a nice, new pair of earrings to go out to dinner or anywhere you would like to have something special and new. I made these for myself this past weekend.
Bless your heart if you are fixin' to go somewhere and don't have the right jewelry to wear. Come on over to my Etsy shop, Sweet Tea and Sisters, take your own sweet time and I am sure you will find something that will have you looking pretty as a peach!
