It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Has chunky jewelry left the market? You might remember people years ago flaunting elaborate jewelry pieces for example chunky necklaces, earrings, heavy bracelets, etc. You might have observed that lesser people wear such jewelry pieces in today’s fashion world. All famous jewelry brands started selling such necklaces a few years ago but recently, such pieces are barely seen in those stores. The market for such jewelry has gone down exponentially. People have not stopped wearing jewelry at all but they have adapted to wearing minimalistic jewelry pieces for example thin necklaces, small and dainty earrings, chain bracelets, etc.

We believe that such jewelry has left the market because designs were getting repetitive and different brands were selling the same products. Due to everybody wearing the same or similar techniques, the target market got tired of this fashion trend. Besides this main reason, all these chunky jewelry pieces have not been the most comfortable jewelry pieces as they tend to be significantly heavy. Moreover, these pieces can’t be worn with different fashion trends and outfits. The jewelry pieces that have taken over the fashion market are more versatile and can be worn easily. Moreover, another issue with chunky jewelry is storage as such big pieces require larger storage space. A significant advantage of having minimalistic jewelry is that it’s easy to store and is significantly lightweight. In some cases, these pieces lose some of their embellishments as well after which these pieces can not be worn with the same ease.

However, the statement an individual could make with chunky jewelry was much more significant than with minimalistic jewelry. There are some markets where chunky jewelry is still worn, for example, in South Asian markets. Maintenance and storage of such jewelry was always costly so it is advised to invest in inexpensive jewelry as that will help us stay updated with the current fashion market.
