-- California-based handmade jewelry company Rock N The Trend has just launched its online venture at rocknthetrend.com. The new website sells earrings, necklaces and bracelets for women as well as bracelets, necklaces and cuff links for men. The jewelry is made out of beautifully colored guitar picks layered with a variety of metal chains, lightweight aluminum and Swarovski Crystal bling.
Rock N The Trend hopes to appeal to the rock star in all of us as well as to the fashionistas and style-lovers around the world. With this in mind, a part of the company’s core values are about connection - the connection of music with fashion. Anyone and everyone who feels a connection to music or to fashion can find something cool and different at Rock N The Trend. The company might also be of interest to anyone who loves to buy local, USA made handcrafted pieces as Rock N The Trend guarantees all of its jewelry to be carefully handcrafted as a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
What makes Rock N The Trend stand out amongst other jewelry collections is found in their approach, which begins with a well thought out design. Owner and designer Lisa DiMaggio applies her training in architecture and passion for music to create these designs. The earrings found on this website are more complex than your standard one-pick earrings or single pick hanging from a chain necklace. Many of the pieces found on Rock N The Trend’s website are made with multiple picks that are layered into unique styles. They’ve created chandelier type earrings by hanging two or three guitar picks on top of each other combined with silver chain links. The goal of this style was to create something that wouldn’t just dangle, but “flutter” to invoke the look of angel wings.
The necklaces and bracelets are even more elaborate, utilizing a layered effect that creates a scaled look. Their guitar pick cuff bracelets use many picks to create a layered cuff - unless you look closely, you might not even realize that these pieces are made from guitar picks. Some of the necklaces are also arranged to look like simple flowers or butterflies. The butterflies in particular look surprisingly realistic and are decorated in the center with metal rings and Swarovski Crystals.
Many of the pieces offered by Rock N The Trend are also designed after a Day of the Dead theme, using brighter colors and picks with Day of the Dead style skulls. The chains paired with these earrings and necklaces come in vibrant blues and pinks as well as black. For the musician who enjoys a stylish formal wear look, the men’s jewelry of Rock N The Trend includes guitar pick cufflinks as well as necklaces and bracelets. http://www.RocknTheTrend.com/
