The Luxury Of Leather

- Friday, January 31, 2014

From our to our trendy Studded Leather Bangles to our classic Leatherettes, many of our best jewelry designs are crafted from genuine leather. We believe in creating our jewelry from the finest materials possible, and authentic leather gives off an aura of luxury and prestige. There are quite a few advantages of using real leather over faux leather for jewelry:

- There is nothing like the smell and feel of real leather.

- Because no two animals are handled exactly the same, each piece of authentic leather has its own unique characteristics.

- Real leather becomes softer and more attractive over time, which makes it more comfortable as well.

- Genuine leather is extremely durable. It is soft, yet strong.
Leather is easy to take care of when it’s maintained properly.

If you have yet to wear one of our pieces of jewelry made from genuine leather, check out our website’s leather section. With such a wide variety ranging from Boho style jewelry to edgy urban accessories, there’s something to suit every style.

Pamper Your Valentine With Pieces From Pame

- Thursday, January 23, 2014

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. The holiday of love falls on a Friday this year, so plan a special night out on the town with your sweetheart. Once you’ve made dinner reservations and ordered some roses from the florist, the only thing left to do is pick out the perfect gift. You can never go wrong with jewelry, of course, and our Boho style jewelry will be appreciated by any stylish maven.

We offer a large variety of jewelry designs, so finding the right piece for your special someone may not be easy. To help narrow it down, we’ll give you a glimpse of some of our most popular and versatile pieces. Go with your instinct, but know that any piece you pick will be appreciated. After all, the point is to let her know you care.

- If you’re on a budget, treat your trendy valentine to a Zig Zag Bangle. She’ll be able to stack it with skinny bangles or wear it alone as a casual everyday staple. This bangle is priced at $50 but it looks like it costs a lot more.

- One of our charm necklaces is also a solid budget-friendly pick. Choose from a Moon Charm Necklace, a Swirl Charm Necklace or a Star Charm Necklace. Any free-spirited fashionista will appreciate its simple, stylish design.

- Named especially for the upcoming holiday, the Valentine Freshwater Pearl Wrap is a chic choice for any woman who likes to wear pearls. Eight Freshwater pearls combine with a pewter heart on brandy-colored leather, hanging at 16” long (18” if you count the dangling heart). She can wear the Valentine Freshwater Pearl Wrap as a necklace, bracelet or a choker and it looks lovely in any season.

- Does your valentine have an urban, edgy style? Our Shipwreck Coin Replica Necklace will be right up her alley. If she’d rather have a cool piece of jewelry she can wear every day than a sophisticated special occasion piece, she’ll love the Shipwreck Coin Replica Necklace. It even comes with a backstory...the original piece was created with a coin from the Santa Maria De La Consolacion, an ill-fated ship that set sea across the Atlantic in 1681. While the story itself doesn’t have a happy ending, your sweetheart will surely enjoy wearing a replica of an artifact.

- If you want to wow your valentine with a more sparkly selection, pick out a pair of Pave Hoops in Rose Opal. Featuring gold-plated hoops and rose opal crystals, they’re one of our most in demand designs—and the best part is, they look like they cost a lot more than their $175 price tag. They’ve also been spotted on stylish A-list celeb Hayden Panettiere.

Remember, shipping on all orders is free—and, if this is your first time buying from Pame Designs, we’ll add a free Montauk Pebble Necklace as our way of saying thank you.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Three Ways To Dress Up A Sweater And Jeans

- Monday, January 20, 2014

The holiday season is full of festivities that require us to dress up. And while we love the glitz and glamour of a fancy ensemble, we’re looking forward to more casual days now that the season is behind us. A standard go-to outfit for winter is a sweater and jeans—it’s classic, it’s comfortable and it’s casual, but not too casual. Here are three ways to rock this timeless look:

1. Dress it up with some chic jewelry like our ornate Venice Cuff. Wear skinny jeans and ankle boots and carry your go-to handbag.

2. Wrap a scarf around your neck to add sophistication to the sweater. Since that will draw eyes upward, keep jewelry simple and wear a pair of stud earrings and our Pelota Stackable Rings. If your jeans have a narrow leg, wear pumps with them to elongate your legs. For this look, a clutch makes a perfect accessory.

3. Soften up the look by wearing our Hand Brushed Lariat in Natural Leather over the sweater and sporting our versatile leatherette as a bracelet. Finish off the ensemble with flats and a stylish satchel.

Ten Ways To Wear Your Little Black Dress

- Friday, January 17, 2014

The little black dress is a classic wardrobe staple every woman should own (actually, we fully encourage having several). But sometimes we fall into a bit of a fashion rut, wearing our LBDs the exact same way every time. And while it surely looks good with those black pumps and chandelier earrings, we promise, there are plenty of ways you can dress your closet classic up and down. Here are ten ways to wear your little black dress:

1. Dress up your LBD with polka dot tights. They’ll add a trendy touch and are adorable at any age. Top off the look with black pumps and a pair of Pave Hoops.

2. Add some bold color by wearing a bright pink or royal blue blazer over the top. Accessorize with nude tights, nude pumps and some chic celebrity jewelry, such as the Cut-Out Cuff worn by Kristin Davis.

3. Make your handbag steal the spotlight. If you’ve got a designer bag in a bright color, make that your LBD’s main accessory.

4. Add a little edge by wearing a black leather jacket over your LBD. Accessorize with a red clutch and red lipstick.

5. A little black dress with a higher neckline will look elegant when accessorized with long necklaces. We recommend wearing a Leatherette at its full 45“ length and layering it with another necklace or two for a sophisticated look. Finish off the ensemble with a pair of ankle boots and some skinny bangles. 

6. Sometimes only the most elegant accessories will do. If you’ve got a big night out and you need to sparkle, wear some sky-high, shimmery stilettos—if you don’t own any, your event is a great excuse to buy some. Accessorize with our most glamorous celebrity earrings, the Green Beryl Drop Earrings, and carry a metallic clutch. 

7. Embellish your little black dress with a brooch or pin. The right brooch can make even your oldest LBD look new again. Since the dress’s embellishment will provide plenty of bling, stick to a simple pair of earrings like our Faux Bois Wave Earrings and skip the necklace.

8. Go crazy with colored heels! If you own a pair of leopard print pumps or red strappy sandals, your LBD makes a perfect pairing. Colored or printed heels were practically made for wearing with this closet classic. Accessorize with similar hues, but don’t be too matchy-matchy...the black dress makes a perfect canvas for creative color play.

9. Create extra waist definition by wearing a skinny colored belt around your waist. In addition to whittling your middle, it will add contemporary flair to your dress. For a more subtle contrast, wear a shimmery black belt.

10. Want to be dripping in gold? Wear your LBD with a Gold Venice Cuff, a Montauk Pebble Cluster Necklace and metallic heels. Finish it off with a classic smoky eye for added glamour.

How To Look Luxurious For Less

- Monday, January 13, 2014

Everyone loves to dress well, but some women are under the impression that they can’t afford to look sophisticated because they don’t have a large budget for clothing, shoes or Hollywood jewelry. This is not the case! While it’s true that investing in a good wardrobe will take some money, you don’t have to cash out your 401K account to look like a million bucks. Here are a few tips for looking luxurious for less:

  • Go through your closet and take stock of what you have. Sometimes it just takes getting creative with your ensembles. Try to make each outfit new in some will force you to be inventive.
  • Alter your clothing. Get your pants hemmed and get your dresses taken in or otherwise altered. It’s an inexpensive investment you’ll be glad you made. Each piece of clothing will look custom made for you!
  • Know when you splurge and when to save. Certain investment pieces, like classic wardrobe basics or a little black dress, are worth splurging on. But a trendy top you’ll wear only twice should only be pulled from the sale rack.
  • Even your chic jewelry doesn’t have to cost a bundle. We offer plenty of beautiful pieces for under $100, all of which is high quality and totally versatile.

Be Beautiful All Winter Long

- Saturday, January 11, 2014

The vast majority of the country is in the middle of a frighteningly cold winter. With temperatures like this, even the biggest outdoor enthusiasts can be tempted to stay inside and hibernate until spring. For women, that can mean losing motivation to stick to a beauty routine. After all, why should we bother shaving our legs if we’re just going to bury them under layers of clothing?

However, it’s just as important to stick to our beauty rituals in the winter as it is in the summer. When we look good, we feel good, and the last thing any of us need is a decrease in confidence along with the temperatures. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should suffer—you can put away anything with short sleeves, and forget about walking through snow in stilettos.

But do make an effort to look and feel your best underneath those layers. Stay hydrated, exercise (inside!), shave and moisturize your skin. And even though your ensembles may be more about sweaters and scarves than sundresses and sandals, make an effort every day to leave the house looking stylish. Wear that Hollywood jewelry even if your hands and ears are covered outside. Trade the chapstick for lipstick once you’re comfortably inside. You deserve to feel beautiful all winter long.

What Inspires You?

- Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Inspiration is all around us, that much is certain. But what inspires one may not inspire another. A writer may be inspired by overhearing a conversation, while a graphic designer might get inspired by the way tall blades of grass look. Each of us views the world through a different set of eyes, so different things will trigger those places in our minds that encourage us to create, move, take a chance or do whatever it is that we need to do.

Many of our boho style jewelry was inspired by natural elements. The appropriately named Montauk Pebble Necklace, recently featured in Nylon magazine, was inspired by the gorgeous oasis of Montauk, our Roman Glass Slice Necklace was inspired by the beautiful beaches of Mexico.

And while the ocean is perfect inspiration for all things beautiful, it’s not just the scenery that inspires our designer to create. Since Tahitian pearls are known for providing protection and good luck when you’re in the water, Pame Designs offers lots of beach jewelry that features them, such as the Triple Tahitian Pearl Wrap. The Oblong Pave Nugget, one of our most popular pieces. was inspired by some natural stones we thought would look better with a little sparkle.

For some, it’s not art that needs creating or jewelry that needs designing. Some people may need inspiration to do something they’ve resolved to do this year, like finding a new job or getting into shape. They may look to traditional places for inspiration, such as others’ success stories or motivational quotes. Or, something more serendipitous may may get inspired by a magazine cover, take a yoga class, fall in love with the practice and get into shape in the process.

The beautiful thing about inspiration is that it can guide you to living your best life, doing amazing things and having meaningful experiences. But to be inspired, you’ve got to know how to find inspiration. A few good ways are:

  • Try new things. Step outside of your comfort zone once in awhile. Take a dance class, try new recipes or start to learn a new language.
  • Take a camera out for a walk and photograph everything that looks beautiful to you.
  • Read books, blogs and articles about people who have overcome obstacles and achieved greatness.
  • Watch inspirational speeches, like TED talks.
  • Have coffee with your best friends and ask them what they’re most grateful for.
  • Listen to music that moves you.
  • Take a solo vacation, even if it’s just for a weekend.
  • Reflect on everything you’ve accomplished in life and think about how you got there.
  • Buy some new fashion magazines and pay attention to the colors and patterns you like the most.
  • Read about different periods of history and different cultures.

So… what inspires you?

Five Ways To Wear A Leatherette

- Friday, January 3, 2014

We believe that it’s perfectly acceptable to buy a piece of chic jewelry because you love it, even if it’s impractical or you can only wear it with one outfit. However, when it comes to our everyday accessories, versatility is vital. Our Leatherette is one of our most popular jewelry designs for that reason—not only can you wear it with practically any outfit, but it can be worn as a necklace, choker or a bracelet. Here are five ways you can rock your leatherette in any season:

1. Spruce up a long, cozy sweater and leggings by wearing your Leatherette as a double wrap necklace. Just wrap it twice around your neck for a mid-length necklace that’s sure to get noticed.

2. Accessorize a knit dress by wearing the Leatherette as a long necklace layered with a choker.  The small beads and pewter coins will add a subtle shimmer without overpowering your dress or the rest of your jewelry. 

3. Class up a casual t-shirt and jeans by wearing it as a bracelet. Wrapping it around your wrist will give you the look of several bracelets in one.

4. During summertime, the Leatherette looks amazing when worn as a choker with a beachy sundress and sandals.

5. Layer it on! The Leatherette can be worn with bangles, a cuff or other necklaces. Its versatility will make it the go-to piece of jewelry you always reach for.
