This season it’s all about bright, bold accessories. And one of the most dramatic fashion statements you can make is with colorful artisanal jewelry.
Sibilla Jewels is a classic collection of contemporary jewelry crafted of luminescent cultured sea glass and semi-precious stones by designer/artist Maureen Chatfield of Tewksbury, NJ, and her daughter-in-law, Sibilla Chatfield, director of marketing and social media. Together, they present a second season of luscious “art to wear” in vibrant jewel tones, pale pastels and milky opaque colors. The collections, as well as individual pieces, are artfully designed with sparkling crystals, natural freshwater pearls and 18k vermeil and gold-filled trim.
“This fall it’s all about color,” says Maureen. “We have all enjoyed modernizing, simplifying and calming our surroundings with shades of whites and grays. But now we’re craving color and it’s showing up in our home accessories, our art and our jewelry. In our latest Sibilla collection, we’ve combined all the elements that inspire art, form, color and light.”
She adds, “Color is emotion and we’re feeling bold as the crisp days of fall usher in holiday activity. We want lots and lots of passionate color. Our new collection of modern, exotic bling may stir the gypsy in you or have you craving spicy ethnic food as you stack these rich bands of passion up your arms.”
Here are some of my fave bracelet looks from the just-introduced Sibilla Paros collection for fall. These stretchable, stackable pieces can take you through the holiday season and beyond. Sibilla also has colorful necklaces and earrings, perfect for cocktail parties and gala events. Be prepared to hear the compliments.
