A little bit steampunk, a little bit 1960's modern. Beautiful hardware silver earrings aren't heavy to wear.
Beautiful, autumnal moss greens, copper and feminine pink.
Stunning sky blue turquoise makes a statement that you're beautiful, strong and in tune with the natural world.
Hardware Edge: Heartspace's Glass and Chrome earrings
A statement necklace: choose stones and colors that enchant you.

I've been Googling the trends for Fall and Winter 2009 and then thinking about which of Heartspace's offerings fit the bill. I'm happy to say that the natural look of semi-precious stones in the rough is ever-popular this fall. Look for what they call a "statement necklace," that is, some piece of jewelry that makes a statement about your personality and style.
Try combining color trends with the healing qualities Gem Lore celebrates: luscious red garnets for steadfast love, sky-blue turquoise for protection and power, rainbow moonstone for feminine intuition, and yellow citrine for positivity and prosperity.
I am seeing a lot of steam-punk: that is watches and gears, etc. in jewelry. There's a lot of this available on Etsy, but what is top fashion is a bit more refined. Heartspace offers a couple of affordable, hardware earrings with silver findings that look like metal parts. Very chic and handsome: not at all heavy, either.
Coral is big. I fell in love with it last year, but learned to be careful to purchase fine coral that isn't illegally harvested, or even worse dyed red, only to come off on your neck! I have yet to find any coral this fall that is affordable and not dyed or "fishy" in origin. When I find quality affordable stones and shells, I will pass the savings onto you.
The bohemian look just won't die; I think because it's so fun to wear Gypsy jewelry. For just a few bucks, you can layer on a necklace or two, and try out some of Heartspace's beautiful earrings, that are guaranteed to flatter your face.
I make test samples of all Heartspace earrings, wearing a pair for a full day to make sure they are comfortable. None of my designs are heavy or scratchy to wear. I promise!
Jewelry is a very affordable way to update one's wardrobe without breaking the bank. May I suggest you don't scrimp with ho-hum jewelry that doesn't glow with color or interest. If in doubt, go without, until you find what really sings to you.
