Accessorize your jewellery this first week of June

Okay the start of June has started off very sunny and warm. So how do you accessorize your jewellery if one minute its summer and the next it goes cold and wet!! Well I love vintage and pre owned jewellery, (save the planet and all that - and I just like something that bit different to the latest fashion flavor) so will always have something old and something a bit newer to coordinate with my outfit. Today I feel like going back to my hippy roots and treading the natural way with wood, beads of seeds and leather. Ideal for going to work (not that I have to any more) or just popping along to the shops. I would wear a long a long T-shirt dress with short sleeves and cover up with a chunky cardigan jacket. Getting my pale legs out from behind my jeans to hopefully get a bit of a tan! No brooch this week, just a simple long fashion necklace and plenty of bracelets or bangles.


This long black and grey Jobs seed bead necklace is ideal - natural seeds that can be found in many colors often mixed with beads of nuts and wood. Then for the natural bracelets go for some fabulous polished wooden ones. This wooden bracelet set is ideal and so tactile.


Maybe I would add a few Indian bangles for a more hippy look. Something like this Indian bangle set below. Just one or two bangles so as not to over do it. Doesn't matter whether they are in a gold or silver color, as wood will coordinate well with both these colors.

  
 Or I might choose a more seventies style. Definitely wearing this original 1970s choker necklace with metal and wood beads. The natural colored beads and stark silver metal just oozes that back to the seventies theme.


Then a flowery bracelet to just set my mood. This wooden flower bracelet is ideal and modern or I might choose something similar like the all sorts wooden bangle below that.




If I didn't want to wear any costume jewellery, then I might pull my hair back for this wooden floral flower hair clip. In a polished tan wood color. It has a unique and brilliant flower and leaf design.


So this beginning of June week I am going back to nature and pulling out all my wood and seed jewellery. What will you be wearing?
