Mixed Metals

Mixed Metals
I personally LOVE making designs with mixed metals! They can be bold statement pieces or simple little accessories, but either way they help blend other jewelry and accessories together in an outfit. For those who just can't make up their mind about what metal they prefer, mixed metal designs are the answer! Layer on the beads and sliders in all different sizes and textures to emphasize the metal mixture.

Pile. It. On.

Can't decide on a design? Mix all your beads together and start stringing! This necklace design makes use of jump rings, sliders, and connector ends with round braided leather.


Small but not Simple

The New Everyday

Several customers have now used this design in their own lines - chic and minimalist, the perfect addition to any woman's wardrobe. Any size leather with a row of thin metal sliders in alternating colors will create the same great look!

 

Paired Sliders + Mixed Metals = Messy Perfection

If you're not into the "randomness" of some mixed metal designs: pick coordinating sliders, designed to fit together, and switch up the colors. The result is a design that feels high-end and purposely crafted.
