Mixed Media Jewelry
jewelry has gained position among the top trends this year. The effort that goes into creating each piece is priceless. It generates a very individual look for the wearer. The use of mixed materials like felt, recycled metals, handblown glass, resin…. in combination with gold and/or silver to add final touches is not possible without hand crafting.

Turquoise Jewelry
Gemstones are a integral part of fashionable jewelry. Turquoise, is back this season in various attractive and classy colors.

Agate Jewelry
Another unique and stunning gemstone used in jewelry making is quite famous due to its multi-faceted pattern and its availability in many colors and shapes. Being multi colored, it can be worn with various outfits to change the look.

Pearl and Bead Jewelry
The use of beads and pearls in jewelry making is quite voguish this season. Pearl jewelry
is available in various types ranging from extremely light-weight ideal for teens and college going girls  to heavy sets or necklaces ideal to make a statement. Pearls impart that glamorous look to a necklace, pendants, earrings and more.

Made to last……

Wearable Art and Design in Everyday Life !

TrèsChic jewelry and CaroSilk scarfs mash very well together; designed to transcend trend and be worn beyond the seasons; which means stylish durability that adjust to every trend.
I have been a fan of accessorizing with scarfs as long as I can think and I am always amazed how layering with jewelry and scarfs or shawls can change the look into something unique and trendy.
Give it a try: play – be creative and fashion forward without buying a new wardrobe.
