The Art of Organic Jewellery
If gold and silver jewellery is too expensive, then organic jewellery can provide the same decoration for a much cheaper price. Organic Jewellery started from the Native Americans by using connecting simple seashells together. Today, organic jewellery has evolved into a major role in the fashion industry. The most popular type of organic jewellery today would be in the form of pearls.
Pearls come from an irritation in an oyster's shell. The irritation is then covered with calcium carbonate which after many years turns into a pearl. Pearls are used in many forms of jewellery including Necklaces, bracelets, and rings.
Pearl necklaces are very popular, and they come in a variety of forms such as Bib, Choker, Matinee, Opera, Princess, and Rope. Pearl bracelets also work very well as fabulous fashion accessories. The classic single strand of different pearls can be used to match any outfit. You can never go wrong with a pearl ring. A gorgeous pearl ring set with gold or sterling silver will made any woman happy.
If pearls are not your thing, there are many other forms of organic jewellery such as bamboo and hardwood. Bamboo is not considered a type of wood, but is instead a type of grass. There are many types of bamboo that are yellow, tan, green, brown, and even purple providing a great fashion accessory. The most common use of bamboo for organic jewellery is earrings.
Although they are relatively easy to take care for, the wearer has to re oil the earring periodically for easy insertion. If you like designs, bamboos can have great designs burnt in them.
