I’ve told this story before, but several years ago, at just 28 years old, I was feeling beyond frumpy most of the time. One day my baby sister was over, and she was wearing a plain sweatshirt but looked, as usual, super cute. I commented on it, and without missing a beat, she said, “It’s the earrings!”
At that point, I’d pretty much fallen out of the habit of wearing any jewelry, but I realized that she was right — the earrings really did make her look put together rather than sloppy.
I decided to slowly begin building a collection of simple, versatile pieces — a few pairs of handmade earrings from Etsy, hand-stamped necklaces from small businesses in the U.S., and fair-trade bracelets from companies showcasing artisans around the world. These days, I occasionally forget to put on jewelry when leaving the house, but I even wear earrings most of the time at home because it makes such a big difference in the way I feel.
Back in December, Tia emailed me to introduce me to Mialisia Versastyle Jewelry, a brand new line of patent-pending jewelry that uses hooks rather than clasps. This ingenious design allows you to layer and mix pieces to create the look you want for any occasion with just a few pieces, offering versatility and value.
With the majority of pieces priced between $20-50, the prices truly are reasonable, especially when you consider that each piece can be worn in up to 12 different ways — as a bracelet or a necklace or a belt, etc., and combining two or more pieces offers an infinite number of looks. Just watch this video:
It’s no surprise that this line was created by a stay-at-home mother of four who understands the need for versatility and style at an affordable price. I love Tia’s description of the Versastyle concept from her first email: “So if you put one of the pieces and wear it as a necklace but decide it is getting in the way of feeding your new son, you can easily wrap it around your wrist, wear it as a belt, headband, or several other ways as a necklace.” Fun, right?
She sent me the Spun Sugar necklace so I could see how it works for myself, and I love it! I often wear it as a bracelet, and I even had someone stop and ask me about it while Sean and I were out on a rare date right before Christmas.
