I’m totally in love with all the latest Baroque inspired fashions out there. Baroque art was prevalent from the late 17th century to the early 18th century in Europe. Baroque art has been dressed up in every shape and form on the runways lately, from opulent brocade jackets to cascading velvet dresses and jewel-encrusted bodices.
If you don’t want to invest time & money purchasing Baroque’s regal pieces a great alternative is to acquire some baroque themed accessories and team them with your favorite wardrobe staples such as an LBD! A lower investment in terms of cost but still get to experience this elaborate and regal trend.
I just had to jump on board and design some Baroque Statement Jewellery so hope you love these pieces as much as I enjoyed coming up with these elaborate designs!
Love this stunning Navy Lace, its quite heavy and works well for jewellery designs.
Love the long tassel on this necklace and it looks great with a white silky blouse.
Black and Gold are also prevalent in many of the baroque looks on the catwalk. This stunning Black and Gold Collar ties at the back with black silky ribbons so suitable for all sizes!
I loved designing this necklace especially the draped chain backdrop! The Necklace has quite a deep V at the front and at the back so it doesn’t have a clasp and slips over the head for easy access and to fit all head sizes! The backline has light silver almost towards champagne colour glass pearls, glass beads and a gorgeous round crystal hangs at the bottom. I’ve teamed this necklace with a velvet strapless gown to show off the necklace to its full potential but a gown with a very low backline would also look stunning with the necklace.
And for some more day wear pieces this collection below features Asymmetrical long chain necklace with Pearl & Gold Pendants with crystals; very elegant but versatile so they can be worn day or night.
The Necklace below was part of a collection I was asked to design for Northern Territory Fashion Week (2013). It features a sequinned lace Chandelier Applique with mulitple layers of gold filagree and gold plated chain draped around the necklace including the backline. A real stunner and it was a real hit at Fashion Week as well!
Velvet was featured regularly in the Baroque Era; I’m in love with this necklace, it sold awhile ago and was a one off piece! The colours are so vibrant and the necklace can be worn at various lengths depending on what you are wearing as it ties with a silky silver ribbon; so elegant!
I wasn’t sure about this necklace with red when I first thought of this dress however was so pleased I did; the colours in the necklace really pop!! Adding a statement necklace such as this baroque inspired one to a plain block colour dress gives an impression of it being a new dress altogether and/or that the necklace could almost be part of the dress. Fleur Elise has a wide range of unique, electic Statement Necklaces, most are one off design; do check them out at http://www.fleurelisedesigns.etsy.com.
