We at Joolwe.com are excited to introduce another blogger interview who shares our passion for jewelry and fashion. We love to hear from fellow bloggers, guests and customers about their throughts and feelings about jewelry and share it with the Joolwe community. Karen Anderson, a digital journalist, blogger and fashionista from Seattle, is the founder of foodfitnessfashion.blogspot.com. Karen says she started the website to “unleash the consumerista side of me.” Her blog’s tagline is “Work out, eat right, and go shopping!” You’ve heard a little about her and her site, now let’s hear what she thinks about jewelry and style.

What is your attitude toward jewelry?

I love earrings and pins. I’ve been gradually getting interested in pendants and bracelets in the past year. I’m small, and dress in a streamlined manner.



What are your jewelry style secrets and philosophies?

Jewelry enables me to transform a plain outfit into a fashion statement. I like classic (expensive) jewelry for the office; when I travel or go to parties, I wear bronze and vintage steampunk jewelry or colorful, whimsical ethnic pieces.

What type of jewelry can you not live without?

Small silver ear studs with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind detailing. The sort of little pieces that people can’t resist reaching over to touch.

What piece of jewelry do you think every woman should own and why?

Gold or silver stud earrings — because they work with everything, and coordinate with all my necklaces and pins.

What were some of your favorite pieces of jewelry from our website Joolwe.com?

Elle Sterling Silver Green Quartz Teardrop Earring

The ELLE Sterling Silver Green Quartz Teardrop Earring. Love the cool blues and greens of the quartz and cubic zirconia with the silver. A perfect summer evening earring. It just says “beach.” J8E-E000004 The Sterling Silver Disco Drop Earrings. Very dressing. I love an earring that has tiered elements and some shimmer! JPE-000172

Who is your style icon and why?

My style icon is a woman I worked with some years ago. She wore bold ethnic jewelry from Israel — lot of hardworked gold and silver. This got me away from boring little pieces.

What are some of the biggest mistakes you’ve seen people make while wearing jewelry?

Big earrings and big necklaces that clash. One of the two needs to lead, the other to echo or harmonize. Otherwise the eye doesn’t know where to go.
