I’m lucky enough to have inherited much of my grandma’s jewelry but I’ve also been collecting key pieces since I was about 19. One of the first places I check in a thrift shop or flea market are the jewelry counters. Something about old costume jewelry is just better made than newer costume jewelry and still has some weight and extravagance to it. Also, it’s usually under 10$ …or even $5. And you can’t beat that!

It’s easy to mix it up …just pile on similar color shades and remove what doesn’t work. Make chains longer by attaching them onto other chains or add ribbons {as seen above}. I also use pins/brooches on occasion just to make it a bit more fun. Get creative with what you already have and turn your old pieces into new works of art you can wear! …however, keeping the outfit simple is key when accessorizing to the max …you only need one focal point and a statement necklace is just that.
