Spring '11 Trends: Wooden Jewelry

I am not going to sit here and tell you Wooden Jewelry has ever been something that I coveted or obsessed over.  However, now that I have done some research, I kind of like it.  Wood is more fashionable than I ever gave it credit for.  Who knew?

And best of all, it is relatively inexpensive and surprisingly can be found at quite a few retailers.

Some of my favorite pieces include:

Wood Bead Bracelet with Rhinestone Sphere

I am sure you are probably thinking I just like this bracelet because there is a rhinestone involved.  And to that I would tip my hat and say, "you are correct."  But what I would also tell you I like about this bracelet is that it is quite simply a good basic.  It can be worn alone or mixed in with the other bangles already in your collection.  It adds a touch of glam to an otherwise natural combo.  An easy piece that adds a refined and natural polish.

Basically ditto everything above but if you have been reallllly studying the fashion sets at the end of each entry for the last month, you know I have been loving these earrings but in the red version.  But what I figure is for $12 total, why not buy both colors and have 2 pairs of earrings that are going to work beautifully with all the items in your Spring wardrobe?  I love the contrast between the feminine rhinestone encrusted chandeliers and the earthy brown stones.

Wood You Be Mine Necklace
$14.99 at modcloth.com To Buy

Where do I begin?  Is it the seasonally appropriate hearts? Oh come on...we all know it is the clever word play in the title of the necklace.  Besides all the usual suspects, what I also like about this necklace is that it is a basic that incorporates a trend but is not overkill.  So easy to throw on with a coral sundress or floral tunic.  So yes wooden necklace, I would be yours.

If none of these options here or below are up your alley, Coldwater Creek and Target have quite a few affordable wooden options.  Perhaps some of my favorite are from Kenneth Jay Lane  at Overstock.com including this bangle and this necklace; so bold yet so versatile.

Despite being a skeptic at first, I guess this is the beauty of wooden jewelry: it is surprisingly versatile and fashionable despite its humble beginnings.
