My forearms are absolutely killing me this morning as I type this blog post. I had the pleasure of going climbing last night with Matt and his cousin Sarah at Metro Rocks in Everett. There is a serious climbing sub culture that you really wouldn’t notice unless you were at Metro Rocks, like I was, or at a very crowded climbing site like Cochise Stronghold. I was inspired by couple in matching splatter paint spandex, the thing is you can only wear pants like that on the rock wall if you can execute a 5.10 with zero effort. This guy definitely could and I was really enjoying the view of the activity, from the ground.
As Sarah, Matt and I were shoveling burritos, guacamole and beans into our mouths after the intense climbing session; we began to chat about accessories. First it was climbing accessories then mountaineering accessories and then the conversation landed on jewelry accessories. So I thought I would dedicate this blog to just that!
First lets discuss necklaces…just keep your style going and bring it into the necklace. I never like a lot of frills, color or gadgets in my clothing so I usually keep it simple with my necklaces. I was telling Sarah that I keep one necklace on all the time, which is a daintier finer piece of jewelry, like a thin gold chain or a tiny pendant. I keep that one and then layer on other statement piece when I feel its necessary. This way you get the layering technique without even thinking about it. The thinner necklace ads a bit more texture to the look without over doing it around the neck. See below for some examples…
I will do Bracelets, Earrings and Rings tomorrow, so stay tuned.
