Things have quietened down in London town but it’s always a joy to sit down and get writing for the Whimz Girls!
Every now and again one can’t help but ponder on things and this week it was ‘accessories’, a great way to spend a lazy and dull Sunday afternoon. I unearthed some amazing facts online, for example did you know that jewellery has been around for seven thousand years? Ever since the first nuggets of copper were found and forged into crude pieces of body adornment! But the first complete pieces of jewellery were found in Kenya, with beads made from Ostrich egg shells.
We all know that jewellery in ancient Greece and Rome was used as a status symbol for many women. It was during this time that techniques in jewellery making were perfected and one can find intricate and stunning jewellery made from gold, silver and copper that still exists to this day. Large neck pieces and earrings would symbolise importance for the head female of the household.
Hundreds of years later and jewellery along with accessories still play a major role in the world we live in. Ok so things have changed somewhat- it’s no longer required to walk out of the house in heavy pieces of gold, now jewellery is all about expressing oneself! Design, colours, shapes along with styles. So if a woman from Ancient Greece was transported to today’s world, how would she accessorise herself? Here are a few examples she may well chose from us at Whimz!
