Each year the trendmakers at Pantone deem certain colours "in" and I'm so loving this year's selection! From soft pink to bold orange and bright green... all fabulous choices this fall. These colours can be worn on its own or have fun mixing and matching them up.
Earrings complement your features in a very subtle way but it can make a real difference in your appearance. To look your personal best it is important that you understand how to use accessories to highlight your best features and how to draw attention away from your less desirable ones. The best way to achieve this is to learn more about your basic face shape and what type of earrings to choose to complement it.
When trying to determine the shape of your face, it is all about the outline of your face so please focus on lines, angles and curves. Keep in mind that there is no right or wrong shape because your face is unique and therefore many people’s faces will be somewhere in between. The most important point to remember is that any face shape can look its optimum best when you know how to make more flattering choices.
The Heart Shape
Is your skin tone warm or cool?
The best way to determine this is to take a white piece of paper and hold it under a light next to the underside of your wrist. Now you need to decide if your veins are more on the blue or the green side. If your veins are more on the blue side you have a cool skin tone. If your veins are more on the green side, you have a warm skin tone.
You can also establish whether your skin tone is cool or warm by following this general rule of thumb. If you look better in silver and blue, you probably have a cool skin tone. If you look better in gold and orange, you are probably warm toned.
Now let's figure out whether you are warm or cool depending on your natural hair colour, eye colour and the undertones in your skin.

I have a selection of beautiful, one of a kind watch bracelets added to my shop. I designed these watches with the idea of combining a watch and a bracelet into one piece of jewellery and this is the result. It is a fun way of adding more sparkle to your outfit! It can be worn with your favourite jeans or glam it up for a special night out.

I recently designed these keyrings as thank you gifts from the bridal couple to their guests as a special token of appreciation for sharing their special day with them. This was such a fun project! I created these keyrings with bronze glass pearls, bicone crystals and glass hearts with a warm, golden tone. A silver charm with cupid's arrow straight through the heart added the finishing touch... so cute!
