An important Jewelry trend for 2010 is Arm candy -aka different kinds of bracelets/ bangles/rings that will be the cynosure this year. Here’s my take on the trend this season.

While Gifting such pieces, using a customised bangle/bracelet box is a great idea. Old tie boxes or commercially available (plain) velvet carry cases can be reused by jazzing them them up gotta or handmade to make that perfect box for the perfect gift.
Instead of adding name tags you can paint (emboss) initials using 3D outliner for a customised look.
