When I make something, I always try to imagine it slipping into my jewelry box and getting along with everthing else that’s there. I also like it when the piece goes with lots of different looks. After all, we work hard, do different things so we want our jewelry to be equally versatile. That’s why I’m so happy with this new necklace.
Today’s piece is a simple enough necklace composed of multicolored crystal rondelles. These rondelles date back to the early 40s and have clearly lived other lives. They’ve been well loved as evidenced by the missing crystals in each rondelle. When I saw these in Paris, I knew immediately that I wanted to make something with them. Yes, they aren’t perfect but I couldn’t bear to just throw them away. As it turns out, it goes with a number of different looks. So far, I’ve come up with three looks to give you ideas on how to wear this beauty.
If you’re feeling casual, it’s the perfect accessory to jazz up a shirt. Throw it over a tee, or in this case, a turtleneck since it’s still cold, and you’re good to go.
It’s also great for layering. I love it with another long chain over a simple black shirt.
This last look may yet be my favorite. When you want color and layers, it’s totally possible with this piece.
