Chunky and Funky

3 May

The chunky style.

 I am feeling chunky today.  Not because I ate too much, it’s because of the great style choice known as fun chunky jewelry.

It is not often that someone would actually appreciate being associated with the term of being called “chunky”. It is a negative counteraction for the most part, and can have health risks associated with the term as well.  Sporting and enjoying a “chunky look” when wearing  jewelry however, is a fun term.  It’s a way to slim down your need for layering or wearing many other jewelry items at once.  This Thursday TNT (This-N-That) post brings attention to the lasting trend in jewelry fashion.  Do you enjoy chunky and funky jewelry fashion?

When you wear chunky jewelry, it speaks for itself.  It is known and appreciated as being statement jewelry.  The chunky look is bold and substantial.

I have often shared photos of Club Creative Studio art that fits well into the chunky style category.  I enjoy creating jewelry and offering items with personality.  A festive and funky chunky necklace or bracelet generally contains more beads in its creation, so the chunky look can be achieved.  Adding more beads gives the wearer a deeper appreciation a love of the variety and over-all collection of beads that combine to form one piece of art.

Chunky style jewelry does not necessarily have to be heavy in weight to wear because of the amount of beads it contains. Chunky yet light-weight beads can be made from clay, leucite, plastic, acrylic, shell and resins and still maintain their comfort associations while looking substantial.

Glass, ceramic and wood beads can sometimes add to the overall heaviness of a piece but can still be comfortable to wear.  The comfort you prefer when you chose to adorn a chunky neckline can be decided from the length and weight of the beads in your jewelry.

Although personal style sometimes will supersede how comfortable you really are, a statement piece does not need to weigh you down.  If you do not have many items that are chunky on their own you do have the option of wearing several necklaces or bracelets together at once.  This method is great to utilize your jewelry in different ways and mix up your won combinations.

No matter what your method is for obtaining the chunky look, when you add more jewelry instead of added calories to your body frame, you get noticed for favorable reasons for the most part.  Chunky jewelry does not add calories to your life-style and your figure, the last time I checked.  Enjoy having fun wearing chunky jewelry.

“D” is for Dare To Be Different

Dare to be different- in your jewelry accessory choices!

Club Creative Studio Art fits right in with my tag line ART THAT SETS YOU APART!  Taking steps to provide an opportunity for others to stand out in a crowd is what I love to do.  Together, we can “Dare to be Different” when we wear, display or give items that are unique, hand-made.  How will you stand out from the billions living in our world?

Club Creative Studio Beads added to Art That Sets You Apart.

Having courage to step out of your comfort zone when chosing or wearing statement jewelry is a big step for many.  It is fine if larger, chunky accessories are not your style.  However, if the aim is to use jewelry as accent and focal point wearable art- then being more bold in wearing something unique and eye-catching is the way to go.  Why be ordinary?

I am not talking about wearing jewelry that is strange, gaudy or heavily adorned.  But, those are words that some may use to describe more unique adornments.  To me, daring to be different may mean wearing an occasional change of style or something that may compliment an outfit no matter if it is your particular taste or not.  While it is important to like what you wear, maybe once and a while stepping out of the box to just wear jewelry for the sake of display can be a step in a new direction.

Also, if you tend to wear the same basic jewelry with every outfit, challenge yourself to mix it up. Even if what you change to is a simple look, displaying something different from your normal look is a step forward in the right direction of having a fresh look. Those who know you well will notice the slight change even if you think it is a dramatic twist to your style.

Consider wearing jewelry that has a theme.  Sometimes when you mix up the feel of your jewelry, your attitude changes.

Club Creative Studio Beads combine to make unique jewelry.

Look at your clothing options and decide how your jewelry choices can compliment and contrast your total look. It can be a new style to allow your jewelry to “pop”, demanding attention.  Take a plain dress or top and dress it up with a statement piece of jewelry.  If it is hand-made…you KNOW you have a unique item to be proud of  owning and wearing.

Silent Statements Say Something

20 May

It’s Feature Friday for Club Creative Studio!

This post is about the fact that you don’t have to say a word to speak volumes.  What do I mean by that?  Consider statement jewelry!  Jewelry can be a means to “say” or express without spoken and written communications.  It can be the silent statement art that speaks.

In the world of combining jewelry and art you can model an eye-catching piece and have it speak for itself!  The chance you get to speak may be in response to the compliments you may receive from your choice of jewelry on display.  Bold and big may add up to be beautiful if you wear something that is a highlight and not a distraction.

Don’t throw away the big, chunky-looking jewelry you have taking up jewelry box room.  Don’t hide your statement necklaces just yet because accessories are meant to be seen and heard.  You want what you wear to speak loud and clear about your fashion sense and about your confidence.  Over-sized, multi-strand,  complicated  bib necklaces,  and layered looks in piles fit into this category of what is a statement look. 

Chandelier earrings even make people look twice because of their length, flow or sparkle.  Some may say that “less is more” but, when you think of bold jewelry style more can be more.  When your jewelry is noticed that means that you are noticed as well as your specific taste!

The popular “more can be more” feeling can be used to your advantage in fashion when you want to dress up a plain or simple outfit.  Often

times a huge statement piece of jewelry takes center stage and attention away from a simple dress and adds the punch of style it deserves.  The background color of single textured material or something in a solid shade paired with a statement piece often gives your whole look the “pop” it needs to look even more fashionable.

Stepping outside of your own comfort zone is what it takes to gain the willingness and confidence to wear a large piece of jewelry you would maybe not normally wear.

Once you get noticed for what stands out as unique and complimentary to your over-all look, you will learn to like and appreciate what jewelry that is large can and does do for you.  Wearing larger shaped jewelry selections gives an outfit a focal point and a place to rest an eye.  It also gives the opportunity for anyone passing a glance the initial reaction to gain an attraction and complement your attire or accessories.

If you are someone who does not have many statement pieces or prefers the more simple look.  Stepping out to enjoy a change of heart might be a good idea to try so that you can learn to notice and appreciate more substantial adornment arts.

Challenge yourself  or someone you know to consider wearing a bold statement jewelry piece.  It can very easily become your next grab-and-go item to accessorize with because it can quickly make your look complete, fashionable and on purpose.  In this case, it can be a good thing to be wearing the “chunky” look…and it has nothing to do with your personal weight and eating habits!  Get chunky today!!!!!
