See How They Fall

Picking up where we left off last week, we are continuing to introduce the newest additions to the Liz James family. These gals will keep you looking stylish draped gracefully around your neck all through the Fall season and into the rest of the year. LJ is here, proudly, to show off our neck candy for Fall 2012!

Halle, Rose, Kelsey

These beauties are accented by either a handmade Spanish cross medallion, St. Christopher medal, or both! They are made longer and can be worn doubled for maximum versatility!

Tricia, Celeste, Hannah

If the small and dainty things in life are more your style then you will love the new Tricia’s, Celeste’s, and Hannah’s. These ladies are great for a small touch of glitz and glamour and also make a fantastic layering piece.

Carrie, Rowan, Gweneth

If you love stones with a pop of color, or are into more of a non-symmetrical look you may want to get to know these three ladies. Not only will they make a great statement, these necklaces will catch you lots of compliments!

Angie, Anne, Hillary, Jo

Charms and crosses are what these four pieces are about. Keep it simple with a small cross and coins, go glam with diamond crosses, or mix it up with large crosses, stones and coins.

Well there you have all the new neck decor for fall. We will continue to introduce our newest bracelets and earrings soon! Stay tuned…

The New Colors of Fall

Liz James is thrilled to announce our new Fall 2012 Collection will debut this week! We have a run down on all the new fabulous ladies from our necklaces to our earrings which we will be blogging about all week long, that way you can get better acquainted. We would like to start out our blog series this week with our first ever birthstone line. Whether you were born in a month of the green peridot, or the white pearl, we have all the colors meant for each month of the year.

Choose your own birthstone, or customize with your kids or grandkids birthstones. These make great gifts, and are small and dainty enough to be worn as an everyday necklace.

Each necklace falls from a dainty 14kt gold fill chain with a small cross medallion and three stones of the color of your choice.

Now if you are not much for the neck candy, there is a great birthstone earring collection as well. You can also customize the earrings or wear them as is. On either piece you can pick your personal birthstone, or simply pick your favorite color. These are a great light weight fun earring with the same small cross medallion. You can wear matching with your birthstone necklace of choice or wear them alone.

So there you have the first sneak peek at our new Fall Collection.

How would you customize your birthstone necklace?

A ‘How To’ on Layering Up

Here at LJ we are all about layering our pieces together, in fact we try and keep layering in mind when designing each piece. Some pieces layer better than others, but it is good to remember to keep your options open and to not be afraid of being creative. Today we are going to give a little ‘how to’ on the best way to layer up on your jewels.

First of all don’t be afraid to mix and match stones. Sometimes people are timid when it comes to mixing stones such as pearls with turquoise or labradorite, but you will find that the mixture can give you more depth and a great variety of color. Also, it is great to keep the necklaces at varying lengths to give you different levels of interest and to maximize the focal point. If you are choosing to layer up a lot of necklaces think about keeping your outfit simple, the jewelry will do the job of bringing pizazz to your look without overpowering it. We have chosen a few options of our LJ necklaces layered up to give you the best idea of what works.

MK, Linda, Norah Champagne

Take classic black with a mixture of white pearls, champagne pearls, and throw in a chunk of turquoise for a classically cool look.

Halle Pyrite, Norah Pyrite, Norah Labradorite

Give a bright casual look a little bit of class and contrast.

Chloe Turquoise, Courtney, Norah Gray

Take a basic white tee and make it flirty and fun, with a pop of bright color.

So here are three different ways to layer with different color, textures, and stones. Find different ways to mix and match your jewels and you may be surprised at the great looks you can come up with.

Bright is the New Black

If the hot summer heat has not already given you a sunnier disposition, then look to your wardrobe for help. The summer trends this year involve lots of bright splashes of color, lace, and floral prints. As some might say this season, “Bright is the New Black!” So hop into some of this year’s fun summer fashion, and don’t worry LJ will help supply the jewels.

Yellow TankLace Shorts, Yellow Sandals, Cammy Earrings, Jennifer Bracelet

Coral Lace TopFloral ShortsSandal, Molly Earrings, Jordan Bracelet, Zoey Bracelet

We are smitten with bold and bright striking neon colors and love to dress them up with complimentary jewels. On the other hand you may prefer a more feminine style with darker contrasted jewels against coral and floral prints. Either way you are sure to turn some heads on your adventures this summer if you stick to the bold and fabulous trends of the season. Great earrings are always a must even in the summer heat, but grab a bracelet or two to layer up for a little bit of arm candy. So keep it cool this summer… in color!

What are your favorite color trends of the season?
