How to layer MY PEACE of jewelry - African Brass Ring Necklaces

layer MY PEACE of jewelry

African Brass Rings

These brass rings were used as currency by the Yoruba people of Nigeria, from the late  1800's to the early 1900's. They were originally braided onto a leather belt, and traded this way. Each ring is individually made, using the ancient lost wax casting method, and no two rings are exactly alike.

My Outfit
Wore MY (new) PEACE Olive Wood Bead Necklace all last week Here I'm paired with my broken-in, over-sized, holy Levi jeans and buttoned-up olive green blouse

Not much to say about My Outfit (there's never much to say) Last week, my goal was to wear the necklace  with a variety of necklines Here, I'm wearing  with a buttoned-up neckline

It works,

also with a deep scoop neckline  and v-neckline

I use MY PEACE of jewelry to "pretty-fy"  My Outfit If I had just worn the jeans and blouse, I'd only look sloppy but with  MY PEACE of jewelry,  I look sloppy with pretty jewelry on!

MY (new) PEACE of jewelry - Olive Wood Bead Necklace with scoop neckline

I already "premiered" MY (new) PEACE of jewelry in my last post.   But, because I love it so much,  I wore MY (new) PEACE of jewelry  almost everyday last week obviously, with a different outfit

MY OUTFIT is not much to shout about scoop neck striped t-shirt from Urban Outfitters skinny jeans from Levi's

What, I'd like to highlight is the neckline. This necklace can be worn with several different necklines
Previous post, I wore with v-neckline

Here is the necklace with a SCOOP neckline T-SHIRT

A chunky, statement necklace such as this is perfect for a scoop neckline t-shirt, blouse or dress Necklace available on Etsy

MY (new) PEACE of jewelry - Olive Wood Bead Necklace

It's MY (new) PEACE of jewelry
Olive Wood Bead Choker Necklace

Just finished this necklace last week. Love it! A couple of weeks ago, I sold a similar necklace and knew I had to make another one, quick! Why? Because it's a beautiful necklace

What I find beautiful are the natural Olive Wood beads. No two beads are alike, they are natural and rustic.
The Olive Wood Beads are made from the wood of olive trees. Every year the olive trees of Bethlehem are pruned so that they bear fruit, which is an essential process that allows a new and healthier growth for the trees and to generate stability in the environment. These beads are the result of the pruning. Beautiful!
These beautiful beads are made from these trimmings. They are very rustic and earthy beads, No two beads are alike due to the various grainage.

My Outfit It's pretty simple. Living in Southern Calfornia, we don't get the extreme weather It's cold! 50 to 65 degrees. I know, I am a WIMP, when it comes to cold…
