Happy Veteran’s Day!

Quick side note: Remember how I said that you could fully expect a tutorial of the DIY Go Dog Go costume I shared with you on Halloween sometime last week? Welp, I’ve decided to hold off on that until next year. You know, when it’s a little more relevant. Ah! The suspense…

Okay. So as I’ve been experimenting with wearing gold + silver jewelry together, I’ve noticed a trend for when something works and when something doesn’t work.  It goes a little something like this:

– 1 gold ring + 1 gold bracelet on one hand, and 1 silver ring on the other

– 1 gold ring + 1 silver watch on one hand, and 1 gold ring on the other

– 1 gold ring + 1 silver ring + 1 gold bracelet on one hand, and 1 gold ring + 1 silver ring + 1 silver bracelet on the other

Starting to get the picture?  It’s, yet another, rule of three.

The odd number seems to compliment what would seem an odd combo from the start.   But that’s not to say that other more, let’s say even, combinations wouldn’t work.  It’s just one thing that always seems to be a constant when I come up with a metal mixing sequence that I like.  And it has become a go-to formula when trying out even more new mixes.

Do you have any go to formulas for jewelry metal mixing?
