1. Cut up those layered chains.
The trend is moving toward ‘statement’ jewelry…that’s one standout necklace. Maybe it’s a dramatic medallion. Or a rich textured chain, or If you have a long layered necklace, you can clip off some of the chains to turn it into a solitary piece. Add a ring and adjust the length to shorten your necklace, or simply cut the chain and readjust the size of your necklace.

2. Less is more.
National Jeweler is recommending wearing bolder, larger pieces that are gem- and color-intensive. Check your jewelry collection for dramatic pieces. Then wear only one or 2 at a time: an oversized cocktail ring or dangly earrings. Whatever you choose, be sure they make an impression.

3. Look for versatile pieces.
A long necklace with a clasp can be worn several ways: as a single strand, as a triple strand choker, even as a bracelet. Long necklaces can be worn as double necklaces or even triple necklace. Our long necklaces come with an extra clasp so you can double it and you can use the clasp we give you to make it easier when you put on your necklace.

4. Earn a compliment.
Pay attention to which piece of jewelry wins you a compliment. If your best friend, or a neighbor, or a stranger compliments you on a necklace, wear it more often. Jewelry is meant to enhance your look. It should catch someone’s attention. Same goes for what you like…if you find yourself giving a compliment, remember the piece. Here at Evelyn Brooks, we are well known for making a statement. Most of our customers come back telling us many stories of I walked into a room and everyone looked at me and the beautiful necklace I was wearing. Specially our exotic braided necklace with a reversible clasp that can be worn not just on the side but also on the center or all the way in the back. Giving you multiple options.

5. Buy what you love.
If you’re out shopping and something catches your eye instantly, respect that instinct. That first reaction is powerful. You really like a piece when you feel that emotion of “I want that.” If you love it, buy it. You’ll love it every time you put it on.

6. Stack your bracelets.
Women’s Wear Daily declared the bracelet THE piece for this season. Wear any style you like: thin, thick, cuff, beaded, silver, gold, bronze. Many trendsetters are stacking them. Often it’s the same style stacked together. Or it’s the same color in a few different styles. Or it’s a group in complimentary colors. Any way you want to wear a bracelet, you’ll be a fashionista. We have tons of options for you, from stretchy bracelets to wrapping bracelets, to bangles, leather bracelets. ALL for YOU or if you are looking for a gift to surprise someone. Shop NOW our latest BRACELETS designs.

7. Give up the watch
If you don’t wear bracelets, your excuse is “but I wear a watch so I can’t wear a bracelet!” So wear bracelets on your other wrist. Or buy bracelets that are thin and will coordinate with your watch (same metal, same color). Better yet, give up your watch. You carry a cell phone…get the time from that. Or ask a handsome stranger for the time.

8. Buy jewelry in neutral colors
They’ll go with most of your wardrobe…giving you versatility. Greys, camels, frosts, blacks are all good choices. They go with everything. Or look for a multi-colored piece. Something with 10 hues in autumnal colors will look good with a lot.

9. Repair your favorite pieces
If it’s an expensive piece, take it back to the store you purchased it from. If it’s from a local designer, call them…most local artists will do repairs for free…(YES, WE DO) they want you to be able to wear their creations. If it’s a costume piece, you can visit a craft store or a bead store. They might offer repairs. Or you can buy supplies to re-string a necklace or replace a clasp.

10. Ask Grandma for her jewelry
So many retro and vintage styles are back in fashion. Take a look at your mom’s, aunt’s or grandmother’s jewelry box. Look for enamel bracelets, Swarovski crystal necklaces, oversized earrings…all in vogue now. You can also find great vintage jewelry at estate sales, antique fairs and thrift stores. You’ll love digging into a world of treasures you didn’t imagine and you can end up creating beautiful new jewelry pieces.

11. Store your jewelry in an air tight container
Oxygen is what makes sterling silver tarnish. So when you’re not wearing your jewelry put it in your jewelry box. Or you can even use a small ziplock bag. One from a grocery store is fine, or The Container Store has small bags in heavy plastic that are the perfect size for jewelry. To prevent tangling, store one necklace in one ziplock bag. Leave the clasp sticking out a bit from the zipper. That way the chain won’t tangle.

12. Keep handy a clean cotton cloth Why? simple because the minute you see one of your pieces is not sparkling or has a small dirty spot, or something that doesn’t look right, the first thing you should do is use a clean cotton cloth to clean it and maintain it from getting dirty.

I truly hope this ideas help you take care of your jewelry pieces, gives you ideas for what or how to wear your jewelry and helps you to take care of your beautiful treasures.

Till next time,

The answer to my question is YES, YES, YES! In fact, not only mompreneurs, but all those interested in growing their knowledge in the fast-paced social media world. Hispanicize is certainly a great fit for mompreneurs, especially those who look to grow their business from doing social media marketing and learning how important it is to stay in business. Even if as a mompreneur you hire someone to manage your social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc; you need to understand what people want to hear from you, you need to understand what kind of content matters to your customers, or simply understand how to measure the impact your posts are having as well as understand how analytics works.

My Personal Story

Now let me explain you from day one why it was one of the BEST conferences I have attended this year.

I was super anxious to set up my booth and get it ready to look super pretty for all those influencers coming to the DiMe Media Summit. So I arrived at the airport and went straight to the Rubell Family Collection to set up my booth, right next to Lansinoh and Visit Philadelphia. After I was done setting up everything, I left and tried to go to bed early because the next morning my day would start at 6am.

1st Day

By 7:30 am the influencers, special guests, and speakers began to arrive. The day was filled with so much enthusiasm and great energy from the different panels. Many people were waiting to hear one of my three favorites speakers together in one stage. Don’t ask me why but sometimes you just can connect with people and laugh and laugh as if you were friends for ever, then you talk to them and have things in common, that is my story with Lorraine Ladish.

Then with Gaby Natale, Emmy award winner, host and executive producer of the TV program SuperLatina, whom I have heard about, but didn’t meet her in person, and I didn’t meet her until my second day at Hispanicize, when she came to my booth took a picture with me and even tweet about her love for my jewelry designs, I couldn’t believe she would actually do her own tweets, I thought she had someone else but again there was a complete mediapreneur and celebrity blogger who DID IT ALL.

More About My 1st Day…

Oh and how can I forget Martin Llorens, whom I met a few years ago in Miami during the National Hispana Leadership Institute conference, where he was launching his first book “Descubre tu estilo : Tu guia para vestir mejor”,  he’s always been super nice and always easy to talk to, he is a very well known writer, tv personality having his own TV program called HOLA MARTIN and works for one of the most watched Univision programs “Despierta America”.

The three of them inspired us in many ways, with different ideas on how to live a more meaningful life, how to live to your fullest, how to reinvent yourself and simply continue to GROW personally and professionally.

Maria Celeste Arraras, Chiqui Delgado were great panel. Among other famous influencers, fashion celebrities and more. We also had the opportunity to mix and mingle with well-known musicians and artists at “La Music” suite. I also got to meet Jon Secada, Boyz Wonder, Elvis Crespo among other up and coming music artists.

The day ended with a fabulous fashion show and the “Juanes concert”.

The 2nd Day

The 2nd day was filled with interested conferences with subjects like:

  • Understanding your google analytics
  • Drove video training
  • Finding your voice to make a difference and impact your audience
  • How to work with key travel brands among other interested subjects
  • Highlights of the day was the Latinovator lunch with Laurie Hernandez, US Olympic gimanistic Gold & Silver Medalist.                                                                                                                                                  Check out the event schedule http://hispanicizeevent.com/schedule/ – so next time you don’t miss being part of Hispanicize.

My 3rd Day

My third day started really early. I was thinking all day of ways to make earrings for Micayla De Ette for her night’s movie premiere of Hold On. She had already purchased an EBD bracelet and wanted large huayruro hoop earrings that will match her bracelet. So I created earrings for her using our popular expandable good luck bracelets; totally clever, right? but it all worked out and she was super happy with there hoops:)

We arrived at the premier of HOLD ON at the Lincoln Theater. The movie kept everyone engaged and the movie content was so STRONG and POWERFUL, that left us with many tears to see and realize how life it isn’t easy for everyone. I was inspired by a quote I read from Micayla De Ette HOLD ON TIGHT… Good things are comin…from Hispanicize at the premiere of Hold On: The Movie and guess who wore Evelyn Brooks Designs Peruvian huayruros jewelry, main character Micayla Dette. A night full of emotions that made me think no matter what,  EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

My 4th Day

By day four I was literally exhausted but a big day ahead awaited and the most anticipated Tecla Awards will be happening at night. http://hispanicizeevent.com/events/tecla-awards/

That day I had the opportunity to mix and mingle with well-known musicians and artists at “La Music” suite.  I had been a fan of Elvis Crespo, and this is where I got to meet him as well as John Secada.

I have countless memories that I will treasure forever from my first Hispanicize and I hope is not the last;)

I will hopefull see you all there very soon.

Sincerely

Evelyn Brooks
