Bandelle -- jewelry that's all about you

Because LeShan is taking a much-deserved vacation from blogging our fashion trend tuesdays have been few and far between. I've hesitated to post on Tuesdays for fear I will disappoint our readers with my limited fashion knowledge. Fortunately today's fashion-related site pretty much speaks for itself so I think I'm safe!

A Facebook friend recently posted about Bandelle, a site that lets you design your own custom jewelry. I'm not talking about a simple crystal bracelet you personalize with initial beads. Bandelle's design studio offers a beautiful selection of gemstones, Swarovski crystals, crystalline pearls, and chains. Simply pick a necklace style and then customize it by changing the color of the pearls, crystals, beads or chain. Once your happy with your design, click to add it to your jewelry box and you're ready to customize the next piece. (And I guarantee you'll want to customize more than one...it's that fun!)

The site offers necklaces and earrings for any occasion (bracelets coming soon), whether it be your bridal photos or girls' night out. My personal favorites are the Briana necklace and Sasha earrings, just in case anyone's doing some early birthday shopping. Prices range from $20 to $86 and all items arrive in a black & white vintage-inspired box.

My favorite part about being a custom jewelry designer is knowing the piece I design in Bandelle's design studio will truly be one of a kind. Sadly I can't say that about my favorite necklace from Aeropostale! --Emily

What is hot in jewelry one year isn't even in fashion the next. So, what are the current trends in fashion jewelry and where are things headed?
