Do you buy jewellery to match an outfit or an outfit to match jewellery?
Just lately I have been thinking about the way that I coordinate jewellery and clothing. As a beader, I find there are many occasions on which I produce a necklace or bracelet which I then need to find an appropriate outfit to wear it with.
Kinda backwards, really. This time, I have made a bracelet to match a green swirly top that I bought and this set me to thinking. It is one of the few pieces of jewellery I have made recently AFTER I have bought the outfit.
The bracelet is based on the technique I learnt from Marcia Decoster in the Romantica class. It has a lovely lacy texture.
