Red and green for the holidays? No surprise. It’s everywhere.
Faceted glass beads, always in style, become hot commodities during the party season.
New Mexico’s foremost fashion blogger, Jaimie Lewinger of More than Turquoise puts it like this:
Now is officially the time of the year to wear your bling and be festive, whether it’s day or night. And not just your bling. Break out your velvet, embellished cashmere, luxe leather, faux fur and metallic anything. Really.
Never one to be left behind, I put appropriately bling-y necklaces on display this week.
Nothing says Happy Holidays like huge, faceted crystals, surrounded by bits of red. (NOTE: In keeping with the theme, these vintage beads were strung onto festive red SoftFlex.)
Another, less dressy-y version looks terrific on seasonal ugly sweaters.
In case you’d like to choose over-the-top, this festive green says it all.
Merry Christmas one and all! Happy New Year.
