Coreen Cordova believes that jewelry is the most important accessory in a woman’s wardrobe. Jewelry has the unique ability to make a woman’s face shine, accent the natural coloring, and make her feel transformed. Unlike clothing, jewelry does not demand that a woman be a certain size of body shape to look great in it. Not a bad philosophy, seeing that Coreen has a background in cosmetics so she has plenty of experience with colors and knowing what accents a woman’s face the best. For the fall 2009 season, Coreen offers some adorable pendants carved into a western theme that includes Native Americans, steer heads, cowboys, totems, feathers, and more. Be ready to see lots of silver here with resin, scrimshaw, and painted detail in these pieces. Cuff bracelets contain figure heads of cowboys and Native Americans in sterling silver. The charm bracelets are truly adorable, with a wide variety of charms used like horses, horseshoes, stars, guitars, religious charms, and flowers. Below are the best pieces to choose from in her collection:
The sterling silver and pink charms of a cross, flower, and enameled disk simply have the name “Arrangement PS5E” and costs $332.00 from My Silver Arrow. The silver chain is sold seperately but these can be added to a bracelet you already own, or even slid onto a silver herringbone chain necklace.
The silver cuff bracelet with the Native American and cowboy is substantial in size and will go great with anything in your fall wardrobe. The Native American has painted feathers in his headress. The bracelet is custom made so it is advised to wait up to six weeks to have it shipped after ordering. $378.00 from My Silver Arrow.
