I started graduate school this semester and was inspired to have a mini class of my own. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Fashion 101. LESSON 4!

Fashion Education 101: Jewelry

Some archaeologists have believed they have found some jewelry as old as 75,000 years old! So I feel it is an understatement to say jewelry has been around for a long time. 🙂

I have 3 addictions.

1. jackets

2. shoes

3. jewelry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy some pretty pictures and a few details about special pieces.

THE NECK

Cameos

Cameo is actually a method of carving into a gem or metalwork and having a raised positive image. The Romans are credited to have this look first. The most popular type of cameo worn is on the neck.

Pendants

Pendant came from the Latin word “pendere” which means “to hang down”. Pendants are a loose-hanging piece of jewelry. Most common in necklaces.
