Statement necklaces are expected to be a trend for this fall according to Associated Content’s Lifestyle report on jewelry.  While there may be an additional focus on statement necklaces this year by the fashion industry, throughout the years, I have seen many women wanting signature pieces of jewelry.  One of the best things I like about attending jewelry, art, and trunk shows with my jewelry is the chance to talk with women and hear their opinions on what they are looking for, what they like and don’t like.

I have found that many women want jewelry that is unique, bold, expressive of their style, and something that will be noticed and that handcrafted jewelry very often fills this need.  Women are especially happy when the piece is one of a kind and they know they are the only one with the piece.

As a jewelry designer, I enjoy bring the smiles and helping women feel that they are presenting themselves to the world in a manner distinctly their own.
