I’m back with another article sharing my thoughts about jewelry.  Hopefully you had a chance to read my welcome post which kind of introduces you to the concept behind my website.

I’m excited to write these articles and share this information with you.  Up until this point it  was always direct contact that I had with the people I would share information with.  Now sharing it with the world wide web is pretty exciting because I never know who’s going to stumble across my information.

So today’s post I wanted to start off by talking about costume jewelry.  It’s funny what people think of when they hear the term costume jewelry.  It’s not jewelry that goes along with a dress up costume, if that’s what you’re thinking.

Most of the time that answer would come from men, who are no always familiar with jewelry.  Maybe I shouldn’t make such a broad statement like that.  I’m always attending networking events, and I have met a lot of guys that are pretty well educated in the arena of jewelry.

Costume Jewelry… Nothing To Do With Costumes

That image is straight from Google.  It’s just jewelry made with inexpensive materials or imitation gems.  A lot of the jewelry that you see people wearing is costume jewelry.  There are many popular brands out there when it comes to costume jewelry.

One of my favorite is http://www.bexrox.com

They have a great line of jewelry for women, and even for men!  Yes, you read that correctly… costume jewelry for men.  There are a lot of men these days that are into wearing jewelry to spice up their clothing.

The nice thing about costume jewelry is that you can get really nice looking jewelry for a fraction of the cost if it were the real gems.  Not saying all costume jewelry is cheap in price, because they can get up there, but it’s WAY less than what a piece with real gems would cost.

Making Your Own Costume Jewelry Is An Option

Not only do I buy costume jewelry, but that’s what I made for myself growing up as a teen.  I couldn’t even afford to purchase my own jewelry, so I learned how to make it.  I actually am pretty happy about that because I was able to make stuff that I really liked, and it now has inspired me to create my own line of jewelry… coming very soon!

If you have questions about any of this, please send me a message on my contact page.  I’d love to help in anyway that I can.  I can even recommend some of my favorites from Bex Rox.

The purpose of jewelry is to make you feel good.  Most people think of it as the opposite.  They’re trying to impress other people.  Find jewelry that makes you feel good.  That makes you feel beautiful.

I’ve seen people wearing stuff that they don’t even like, or feel good wearing, just because they think it makes them look good to others.  It’s crazy, but it happens all day!

So choose the jewelry for you.  I always made my own jewelry on how it made me feel.  I really didn’t care what others thought, and that’s when I think they liked the pieces even more because what I was wearing resonated with me.

If you’d like to learn how to make your own jewelry, stay tuned here as well.  Not only am I going to be selling my personally made costume jewelry, but I’m going to be teaching a course on how to make your own, along with posting free content on how to get started making your own, even if you’re a beginner.

Well I think that’s enough for today.  I’ll be back in a few days with some more stuff for you so remember to come back and visit.  I run this website around my other responsibilities in life, so I squeeze it in where I can… but stay tuned as I will be delivering more great content for you.

Also, share this info with others if you think it’s valuable to them.  I always appreciate people giving my posts a spin around social media.  Thanks again for reading today, I look forward to seeing you coming up on some future blog articles.
