Trends in jewellery design – body jewellery

· · · Comments

Continuing her blog post series into trends and innovations in jewellery design, LJS tutor Anna Campbell turns her attention to body jewellery

Body chains

Worn quite regularly by Rihanna, these are chains that are worn in some way over the torso. She tends to wear them over bare skin, a little more difficult in a British climate. However, they can also be worn over clothing.

This piece is only £10 from River Island and shows how this trend has become mainstream

I really rather love this Menat broad body chain from designer Danielle Singer who has a large range of these types of jewellery

This chain armlet is from a lovely range by Ninnos

 

Wrist pieces

This type of jewellery has a number of names. It is known as a finger bracelet, slave bracelet and ring to wrist cuff (and no doubt many other names).  It tends to loop around at least one finger and the wrist.

This example of a cuff and ring is available on Ali Express

This bead and chain wrist piece from foundry and co is very elegant

 

Hair jewellery

We are used to hair adornment in the form of hair band and clips. More recently celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Mila Kunis have been photographed wearing hair chains as below.

Chains over your ponytail. I love this look but can’t see how it’s possible to keep it looking that lovely when you move your head!

 

Have you made any body jewellery? We’d love to see your take on this trend so please share pictures of your work with us on our facebook page or on twitter.
