Yea or Nay: Plumbing Parts Jewelry

Everything’s coming up roses! The metallic movement is in full force.  Traditional yellow gold is taking a back seat to the nowness of rose gold.  The cool combination of gold and copper alloy create a brilliance that will stands out in every way, shape, and form. The unexpected metal hue of rose gold nods to luxurious living with vintage flair accents.  Look to Cartier who incorporates the intense element into watches, rings and all sorts of fab things!  Nicholas Kirkwood dazzles decedent crazy-cool-heels in this amazing hue to boot! To create an easy breezy beautiful rose gold statement necklace, take a trip to your local hardware store and pick up copper pipe fittings, also known as couplings. Available in elbow shapes as well as straight options, these materials will cost pennies.  Major bang for your buck, so stock up!  String onto a contrasting ribbon or rope and rev up for a healthy reality of rose gold.

Marvelously metallic or too plumber-y?

Wouldn't wearing copper pipe around your neck turn it (your neck, and the pipe) green?

Looks easy to make but the fittings seem too clunky.  Try a smaller diameter fitting.

I don't wear it, so maybe I'm not eligible to vote; but I say nay anyway.
