If you know Monty Python, imagine this to be said in the tone as "The Larch", if you don't, just ignore this. Thank you. And now on to something completely different.
Men and jewelry - not something we find on this blog too often. Such a pity. One would think that there are no jewelry choices for men which is not at all the case. Dim the light please and I'll show you my latest research on the subject. Today we'll concentrate on these five major areas. We'll start at the ear and work our way down.
We'll start with an all-time classic, the single stud earring. Made from recycled silver by Azoho they have an organic look. Just the right little touch for a man's ear.
If you expect a simple gold or silver chain now, you guessed wrong. I found something much better, a pressed penny. The FamiLee Jewels have this great line of jewelry featured a pressed penny which is finished off in fabulous copper wirework, like this necklace with the carousel horse.
The chest. Kind of.
In the early days knights wore chainmaille armors. Tone that down a bit and combine it with the modern man's armor, the business suit. How about this tie chain in the beautiful Jens Pind weave, made by Elegance and Sparkles? No holes in your tie and a really classy look, too.
Copper and boy scouts - how do they go together? Well, I happened to find out that the scouts wear a Turk's head knot as a woggle, the Turk's head knot being a decorative knot forming a closed loop with a variable number of interwoven strands.
A knot of that kind has been used in this cool bangle by Tasha Chawner. A nice pair of jeans, a t-shirt, this bangle - perfect!
Now this is a kind of design you might be familiar with. It's timeless, classic and just plain beautiful. The silver ring with the lapislazuli inlay is perfect for a man, just as silver and blue always is a perfect combination. It can be found at TJR Jewellery.
Ok, turn the light back on. I hope you enjoyed our little educational movie. Stay tuned for more.
