Understated but Elegant...

Jennifer Tuton

A very dear friend of mine called me this afternoon.  She said she was wearing her new pyrite Beaded Bar Necklace at work and someone commented on it.  They said, "Wow! That's so pretty! You know what I love about Jennifer's pieces?  They're so easy to wear and yet they're still elegant."   And it got me thinking, what if elegance is "the least amount of effort with the greatest impact and ease?"  Many of my designs and creations are borne from the space of what would it "add" to your life, what would be effortless to wear, and what would create the most visual impact with the least amount of fuss?  Too many to mention, but definitely lots to choose from. Have a look a like my site, and maybe ask yourself - "Body, what would you like to wear, and how can that create the impact you'd like to make in the world?"  Just sayin.

My current obsession....what I'm wearing

In the warm summer months one doesn't wish to wear much, let alone clunky jewelry.  My recent go-to is the Lacey Y necklace.  It's shimmery, lightweight chain is the perfect wear-with-all.  It seems to spruce up even the most basic tank tops and casual dress ensembles.  Then when I'm looking to "bump it up a notch," I add my newest Beaded Bar Necklace.  Yes, I wear them both together!  Teeny tiny micro faceted gemstones with a sleek curved gold bar. Three or four gem stone hues to choose from (my favorite is the pyrite) -- and looks fantastic on everyone!  It's also in line with the popularity of "chokers" this season, as well as a brilliant layering piece.   

Traveling? Jewelry? Don't leave home without it.

One of the things I hear most often is women expressing how they don't want to bring their fine jewels when traveling out of the country (for risk of it getting stolen).  Having said that, even whilst journeying the English Countryside, or trekking up Machu Picchu they still desire to look chic.  My line has many solutions. Floating Gem Necklaces add just the right amount of splash to any outfit, and have the versatility of wearing long or doubled.  Long Rod Pendants are effortless and take the "blah" out of a simple tee and jeans and turn it into "ahh".  A client the other day was going to France for the summer and looking for a long necklace that would pull together all her white linen outfits - voila! My Triple Tassel Necklace in sea green Chalcedony was the winner. Swishy and elegant a true wear-with-everything piece. There are many options and choices -- it's exciting to know that when you're traveling or vacationing you can still pull great looks together without feeling like you've left your best stuff at home.

Everyday diamonds...

Ever since I was wee one I was mesmerized by diamonds.  The sparkle, the facets, the bigger the better.  I'd sift through my mother's jewelry box (unbeknownst to her, well she probably knew), and try on all her finery.  She had a gorgeous three stone diamond ring, and a lovely bracelet with gold charms from all of her travels.  It was no surprise that after years of creating a line of semi precious jewelry it was TIME to enter the world of "precious" stones.  My point of view was "why wait for a rainy day? I want to wear this ring now!" and from that my Diamond Marquise ring emerged.  Edgy and elegant, and an easy daily wear.  I love the simplicity of the 18K yellow band with a floating marquise in 18K white gold with an gaggle of shimmery pavé diamonds. What's even more fun is the ability to layer it with my other Eternity Bands.  They snuggle next to the band and create such an elegant look.  My grandmother always kept her fine jewels in a safety deposit box and I often wondered, "why not just wear them and enjoy them?"  What if you wore your fancy pieces and mixed them with your fashion pieces? What energy might that create in your life?  One affordable way to begin is with my 14K Gold Diamond Initial Necklace:  Every day in every way.
