I believe that denim dreams are a state of mind! We wear them, we love them, but do we accessorize them? Now, that is the question?
I know that denim dreams come in many colours, but I’ll refer to the blue variety, for this blog post! I grew to love it in my school days, so that’s what I’m going to talk about today!! Today’s denim is a heck of a lot more comfortable (but we were kids, so what the heck did we know?), and you can even buy them with ragged holes!! In my day, you needed to fall off your bike, down the stairs, or even drag your hems, or backside on the ground, to get that worn look, but boy did we ever get in trouble!! LOL!
Embrace your denim dreams! If you want to wear leather, lace, pearls, stones, Swarovski, or Sterling Silver, go for it! Or even better, combine several, for a statement necklace! You won’t be disappointed!! BeadFX has it all, so why don’t you go shopping?
Denim is not just for playtime! You can dress it up, or dress it down, depending on the occasion. I’ve even seen denim at weddings! But, to each his/her own!
I like to top my denim jeans with a long, loose shirt, then pair it with a longer necklace of some sort (30″ to 34″). But, that being said, not always! These necklaces (shown below), fall just below my collarbone, and are very comfortable to wear. Do they contain many separate elements? Yes, of course they do! I tried making them longer, but they just didn’t look right. Now, they’re my current favourites, oh so comfortable to wear, yet very, very, Boho!
I love the Talisman look with denim.! I made this one a while back, but combined elements from several classes (from other instructors), then added a few of my own. It’s casual, comfortable, and I love it! I made several more, but no photographs! Add some of your favourite things, to a large ring, then attach it to a chain of some sort (I like ball chain). Easy!
My needle felted, concrete, or bead embroidered pendants are also perfect, as are bead woven, freeform peyote, and any of those stretchy bracelets that are all the rage!
Now let’s talk pearls! Pearls are perfect for your denim dreams! BeadFX carries a wonderful selection of pearls! String them on silk, knot them, or go for the more casual look, by adding some of the large-holed pearls to leather. Any would be appropriate! Even more special, is that we have one set of long pearls, that’s even already knotted for you. Drop by the store, or put them in your cart quickly, because they’re going fast!!
For colour, anything goes! Turquoise is my favourite, but silver, red, white, yellow, and even grey look good as well. Yet, then again, black, and the many different shades of blue, are always an option!
I’m still looking for the perfect denim jacket, although I do own one that’s acceptable! I plan to pair it with either a sparkly vintage brooch, or a bead embroidered button. Anything goes! I might even hand embroider, or bead embroider something on the back of the jacket (after I find the right one).
Watch for my late spring and summer classes! Perfect for your denim dreams!
I’ve shared my denim dreams, now how about sharing yours?
