A little bit of gold

Lately I have found myself drawn more to delicate pieces over statement pieces. Perhaps it is due to the heat and a desire to be dressing lighter, or perhaps the heyday of the statement necklace has passed? While I haven't checked with People Style Watch, the seeming authority of what is in and what is out, as far as I'm concerned, hammered gold metal should definitely be in.

I shared a couple new pieces I received from Belcho on instagram earlier this week, and could not be more smitten. Both are handmade in the USA of recycled metal and plated in 14k gold. The evil eye necklace has a tiny CZ eye, and while it looks great on it's own, it's just begging to be layered with other necklaces. The cuff is light weight and yields to pressure, so it can be adjusted slightly for the best fit.

The designer behind Belcho, Marie K. is a self taught artist, following her dream to create her own jewelry. The pieces are handmade in her L.A. studio, where she not only strives to bring beauty to the wearer, but also to help improve the world around her; a portion of every sale is donated to children's and animal rescue charities. If you have a moment, check out the rest of the line. The pieces I'm wearing are not yet up on the site, but hopefully they will be soon.

I've always been a big fan of dainty jewelry and prefer to wear more delicate pieces. Very pretty.

This is such a fun summer look! Ikat is one of my favorite prints.

The color combination here is superb. I am fond of blue & orange together, but that could be because they were my college colors. I love the pattern of your shorts! :] // itsCarmen.com ☼

I love a good statement piece, but I also really appreciate a dainty necklace, too. These are so great!

I used to be a silver girl, but now I gravitate to all things gold - jewelry, home stuff... gold is now my obsession. Those shorts are too cute! Have a great weekend!

Really cute outfit!!! Also love your sandals and bag. So sharp Lydia!

Shea Sayers said...

What gorgeous photos. I'm so jealous of your nearby beach! And these colors are so pretty together too.

Frannie Pantz said...

I've highly favored lighter accessories lately too. Love the orange and blue!

Cee said...

I jus tlove that cuff! Lately I find myself taking my heavier necklaces off halfway through the day - it's just too hot and sticky to keep them on. I should really think about investing in some lighter pieces for the summer months... but I think I've done enough "investing" for this week, so I'm going to hold myself back for now ;)

Jenny Plog said...

Fantastic summer outfit!!!

I love that necklace! It is so pretty! Even though I wear a lot of statement pieces, I would like to find some more delicate pieces to mix in. I hope you had a great weekend!

Love the evil eye necklace and that bracelet!

Lorena said...

Orange+blue= fab
and I am all for that eye necklace -
I certainly hope that statement jewelery is still around for a while because I have quite a stash.
