Stefanie Says... / Ways to wear
The Trilogy 60 inch necklace is my most popular necklace because it's so versatile. This short video shows you all the ways to wear it. Want to learn more? Follow one of the links below.
How to dress yourself- You all love the look of my multistrand bracelets but many of you are intimidated by the clasp. I've been clasping and unclasping my own bracelets for years without much trouble at all and I thought it was time to share my methods. I demo this often at craft shows and a few simple tips have helped many of you get fully dressed by yourself in the morning! In this video I demonstrate my tips.
Sizing- My multistrand bracelets come in three sizes:
- Small is 7 1/4 inches long
- Medium is 7 3/4 inches long
- Large is 8 1/4 inches long
I am happy to fill custom orders for additional sizes- just let me know what you need!
Caring for your multi-strand bracelet- Keep your bracelet's clasp shiny by wearing it often, storing it in a closed container (such as a sealed baggie in your jewelry box), and polishing it with a silver polishing cloth if it becomes tarnished or dull. It's air and especially humid air that causes sterling silver to tarnish, so if you live in a humid climate you may notice your silver tarnishes more quickly.
A small amount of tension holds these clasps shut as the narrow bar (an electrician or mechanic might call this the "male end") slides into the wider bar ("female end"). Your clasp should be snug when it is closed and it should take some gentle force to open the clasp. If you find that after much wear your bracelet seems too easy to open or close, you can tighten it yourself or bring/send it back to the studio and I'll be happy to do it for you. To tighten the clasp yourself, open the clasp and take the "female end" and give it a gentle squeeze to narrow the gap, this will yield a more snug fit next time you close the clasp. If you do notice that your bracelet seems too easy to open, tighten it up (or bring it back to me to tighten for you) before continuing to wear it-- and you will be able to enjoy it for years to come!
I've been wearing my gold leaf necklace as a wrap bracelet at my summer shows and so many of you have been commenting on it that I thought I'd share this video. See the full gold leaf collection here.
I spend my summers outdoors at the Vineyard Artisans Festivals on Martha's Vineyard interacting with customers and sharing my enthusiasm for my jewelry. I love watching customers' reactions to my newest colors and styles and observing as they interact with my creations. I was inspired to create this video after Julia, my booth helper this past summer, discovered YET ANOTHER way to wear my already versatile Trilogy 60" necklace! A creative gal by nature, one day she was playing around with the long necklaces in my booth and she came up with a way of creating a pendant by tying a knot. Now this is one of my favorite ways to wear this classic necklace. We spent the rest of the summer demonstrating this new knot to customers as they browsed in my booth, complete with puns like "you will knot believe how many ways you can wear this necklace" and "are you ready to get knotty?". In this video I share this knot as one of the seven ways to wear the necklace. How do you wear your Trilogy necklace? Please share below in the comments. Enjoy!
