Jewelry is such an important part of an outfit. Whether you like dainty, minimalist pieces or statement jewels, jewelry defines your style, even more than clothes.
Have you ever thought that jewelry exists only to make people happy? I mean, jewels are useless. They don’t keep us warm or comfortable, but they bring beauty and joy to our life. At least they’re supposed to. That’s why I think that being a jewelry designer must be beautiful. Creating something just thinking about the joy that could bring in someone else’s life must be great.
Elizabeth Taylor, who didn’t create jewelry but bought and received many precious pieces, said “I’ve never thought of my jewelry as trophies. I’m here to take care of it and to love it, for we are only temporary custodians of beauty”. Aren’t these words poetic?
Nowadays, “arm party”, “stack of rings” and “layered necklaces” are some of the most popular, socials-friendly jewelry trends and many websites suggest how to upgrade our style game suggesting us to copy models, influencers, it girls. But I have always found paintings so inspiring when it comes to jewelry and how to wear it. That’s why I’m dreaming of this book.
Fashion always takes inspiration from art.
Fashion designers often state that paintings and art are a big source of inspiration for them. After all, what it’s now considered history, once was fashion at its highest level. Now there’re editorials of great photographers, once there were portraits and paintings of great artists. And gosh… women (and men) were so stylish!
So, I found some beautiful and inspiring details from portraits. I’m sure you’ll find these women as stylish as it girls, maybe even more.
