One of my favorite aspects of the holidays is the parties! Yes, I’m a girl who loves to get dressed up, accessorized, and wine and dine with my loved ones in honor of one of my favorite seasons. Now I’ll admit, I usually stick to darker colors like black and grey for going out because, well, I think they are slimming! I need that pop of color though! I can’t look like I’m going to a funeral at every holiday party I attend. This is exactly why I’ve fallen head over heals in love with JILZARA Jewelry! They offer everything from bracelets to necklaces to earrings to watches to key chains to rings and more.
JILZARA offers a line of premium jewelry, with a focus on handmade polymer clay beads. Named for founder Jill Manzara, JILZARA offers true artisan beads through the process of “caning” that are certified lead-free, nickel-free and cadmium-free. This means that the beads hand-rolled from the original “cane”, and then baked, cooled, buffed, cleaned, and finally, made into little pieces of art that make up the jewelry!
JILZARA generously sent me the Crystal Bracelet in Navy! As soon as I opened the box, I was in love. The designs are exactly the type of accents I look for, and I knew the color would go great with not only my holiday dresses, but many of my Winter and Autumn outfits.
What strikes me most about this bracelet is the vibrant colors of the beautiful beads! As I stated above, they are made up of a synthetic clay with a resin base. This makes the beads extremely durable, which is always a major plus with curious little hands are around. I love the various designs that JILZARA offers and the gorgeous patterns of each bead are layered through caning so that the color and pattern never wear off.
Now what makes this bracelet different from the others offered at JILZARA is the sparkle! While their other bracelets use silver balls or other beads as spacers, the Crystal Bracelet uses silver-plated alloy zinc spacers with brilliant AA Czech Crystal! This means a shiny, sparkly, and dazzling accent to your wrist!
The bracelet itself is made up of a durable 1.2mm black elastic cord. Even when my son got his hands on this, he couldn’t break it! That right there makes the bracelet even more attractive to me.
Overall I’m very happy with the JILZARA line so far. The bracelet is quite comfy to wear, and I didn’t find any scratches on the beads or tarnish on the spacers after extensive wear this past month. I can’t wait to show my bracelet off to more friends as I make my rounds at the cocktail receptions this holiday season!
