NETERAL has compiled these looks to make you smile and then some.

Neteral Accessories: Wearing a Work of Art

Is it possible to wear a work of art?  Of course, we wear art everyday subconsciously.  Our own personal style is our work of art.  The way we wear our jeans, our scarves, our favorite jacket and shoes is our way of expressing what we think of ourselves, our mood for the day, and sense of style.  The designers who deliver these pieces of clothing are deemed creative with that certain “eye”.

Very little emphasis is given to the art jewelry designers create.  Jewelry designer Evette Everett fuses Earth’s natural gifts of clay, pearls, crystals, rare beads, and other elements found around the world to create intricate designs.  She creates these precious designs all by hand.  Her art is produced through ceramics, fused and torch work glass, elaborate beadwork, and other distinctive processes.

Evette Everett’s passion for art is exhibited through the rare pieces she has handcrafted.  There is meaning behind each piece and can surely strike up a conversation from the moment it meets the eyes of the audience.  The intricacy and dedication given to each piece makes the wearer feel as if each piece was designed specifically for her.  These pieces can stand side by side with art work found in any museum throughout the world.  Wearing Evette Everett’s designs will make you feel like a jewel yourself.  To view more of Evette Everett’s jewelry pieces, you can visit her website at www.e2designz.com.

Neteral Accessories: Winter Season Jewelry

Many women accessorize during summer months without thinking twice about it, but can the jewels you wear during the summer work in the winter as well?  Maybe a few of them can, but certain jewels just go perfect only with that flowing summer dress, platform sandals, or halter top.  Ladies have to switch up earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and everything in between to accommodate the winter season.  Statement pieces are a given for winter jewelry.  You are wearing more garments; therefore, your pieces should not drown in your look and should stand out themselves.  Long earrings, bold necklaces, & large bracelets will make the perfect look.

Metal jewelry in pattern or irregular geometric shapes can complement a long sleeve cashmere blouse.


Another theme for this winter is to mix up different random pieces that would not usually go with each other, but would create the perfect statement pieces when meshed together.  These meshed pieces can be trendy & layered as well.

Fringe is in…your jewelry

LARGE rings are another hot look for this winter, retro & vintage

Remember, don’t overdue it when it comes to jewelry.  The jewels are layered and extravagant because they make their own statement, so only one to two pieces are necessary.  The best part is that ALL of these pieces are from Forever21’s jewelry line, and can be found online under the jewelry section within the $4 to $13 price range…..YES, that’s it.  Make a bold statement without putting a dent in your wallet.
