This is a guide that will help you create a jewelry collection with an urban stylish look using different metal elements, metal chains and a few Swarovski crystals.
Just a few components
You can create a very interesting and elegant look with just a few components. The point is to find several elements that work together, and combine them into a long necklace with two kinds of chains. Hang one or two stone settings with Swarovski crystals to add a bit of sparkle, and there you have a metallic, beautiful and an urban style piece of jewelry.
The point is to resist the temptation of adding color to these jewelry pieces, the power and beauty of this look comes from the metal color.
Here we used Swarovski crystal colors that match the metallic look such as Crystal, Aurore Boreale (AB), Dorado, Silver night and Metallic light gold.
When you use two or even three metal colors you can create a very powerful and stunning jewelry that will definitely be noticed. You can also use the same element with three colors of metal plating in one piece of jewelry.
Here are same metal color combinations that you can use:
Rose gold & Nickel
Antique Brass & Shiny silver
Antique Silver & Antique Brass
Shiny and Matt Yellow Gold & Shiny Rose Gold
Shiny Black & Nickel & Shiny Yellow Gold
Big & Bold
Don’t be afraid to use big elements! This urban look is all about jewelry that is big and bold, without using any additional color. Choose a large size metal elements that have a lot of surface, so that they will show their metal color. These jewelry pieces will easily upgrade every outfit.
Necklaces & pendants
One of the things that makes any simple necklace look more sophisticated is using two or more kinds of chains, when you mix two metal tones together it will create a fabulous result.
Using a few charms and pendants together with different metal colors is a great and fast way to make a simple but with a twist stunning necklace.
Have fun creating!
