Around 2012, the rules of fashion changed. Mixing gold and silver jewelry was suddenly trendy. Well, I’m not sure about you, but I’m pretty slow to adopt trends, if I adopt them at all. But as a mature (ahem) adult and jewelry designer, I will admit that I was feeling a little left out of the gold love fest. Also, with maturity the idea of perfection just goes out the window, don't you think? Perfectly matched everything is just boring. It’s much more fun to mix things up by experimenting a bit outside of the box.
