What could possibly be better than unique handcrafted accessories that give your style one-of-a-kind flair? Unique handcrafted accessories that support small artisans around the world and make your style one-of-a-kind, of course! Such is the case with jewelry and accessory shop, HandPicked.
A little background on what makes HandPicked pieces so special: The shop’s founder, Melanie Mauldin, fostered the original vision because of her love for the land and people of Mexico. Since its inception (over 25 years ago), HandPicked has been offering beautiful jewelry crafted by families of silversmiths. Today, Melanie’s legacy continues with owner, Sonya Ingram, whose connection to HandPicked and these families is equally as strong.
HandPicked offers a unique assortment of sterling silver and semi-precious stone gifts and treasures like necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings… you name it! They also carry a fab collection of apparel and other accessories from handbags and scarves, to head-wear and ponchos and other gifts. You can also make your pieces more memorable by adding personalized pizzazz with monograming! I just love pieces that have a personal touch! HandPicked not only showcases your unique sense of style, but they also tell your personal style story.
The thought that I’m wearing something made with care is sooo chic. And if there’s a meaning behind the method that makes them even more fabulous. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a few fab HandPicked pieces. So, I picked from their elephant-inspired collection to style for an impromptu photo shoot. 😉 Elephants are such majestic animals because they symbolize strength, power and loyalty. All the qualities any diva should covet. 😉 All that’s missing is a beautiful backdrop to showcase my nature-inspired style, and I knew just the perfect place… The gorgeous grounds at Barnsley Resort in North Georgia. The open air, rustic setting, and stunning views provided the perfect compliment to my HandPicked style.
I wanted to center my outfit on the “Ella the Elephant Scarf,” because every fashionista knows that a statement-making infinity scarf should not go to waste! This piece is a great attention-grabber that still allows for other accessories to make an impact.
With that said – sometimes, when wearing scarves, a little understated bling never hurts. That’s why I paired the feminine, filigree elephant pendant underneath my infinity scarf. A trick like this draws the focal point downward a bit, which is a proven tactic to elongate and flatter your shape in a low-key way.
Since the rest of my outfit was pretty accessory-heavy, I wanted to wrap it up with simple, delicate details. I added the bohemian “Ruffle My Feathers” bracelet to break up the elephant theme and pull in a beautiful metal finish. The carefree vibe of the bracelet was the perfect balance to my nature theme. Then, to complete my excellent elephant-inspired ensemble, I wore matching sterling silver elephant studs to incorporate just enough bling to grab a few envious eyes. When in doubt, all you need to wear are your favorite basics, like a simple tee and distressed jeans, and then your accessories can do all the talking!
Hey, I love having amazing accessories in my style arsenal because they make my style feel so fab and effortless, and my perfectly-paired HandPicked pieces looked absolutely gorgeous! If you want to add one-of-a-kind flair to your fashion, pop over to www.BeHandPicked.com and give your style
