Statement Necklace



I don’t have many necklaces. I am an earring person. But when I saw this colorful trend, I just had to have some. I’ve worn this necklace 3X’s this week; (a gift for Mother’s Day), and get many compliments.




It was a great subject for my drawing of the week.

From the MFA; broadcollar



The statement necklace is nothing new—heck, you could say it was older than 2000 years old! Although, they called them “broadcollars” back then; looks like a statement necklace to me. Same idea, no?

Have a great week, and Hello to everyone over at Patti’s Visible Monday!

    I'm not a big necklace person, either, but I've enjoyed seeing all the pretty & bold pieces on other ladies. Yours is really pretty!

  4. I'm a necklace person so I do understand that this is a beautiful necklace and I also think that the tow shirt together made for a cool bohemian inspire outfit.

  5. That's a fab necklace, and you're working the colors beautifully! I remember the great Betsey Johnson earrings you bought when we were shopping together - what fun. Thanks for sharing your great look, and art, with Visible Monday. xoxoxo

  7. Oooh, love that lacy top and button down accented by the bubble necklace. I have one in coral and one in a minty teal color and I love them. Got them cheap on ebay and at first thought I'd order a bunch more in a variety of colors, but restrained myself and will be content with the two I have. They're fun though.

    1. Val, I know--I'm so bad lately about taking pictures. I'm just doing my iphone--I sort of got tired of taking pictures of myself!

  10. I would call it statement necklace too, in fact Zara came up with necklaces very similar to that last season and some more this. Your crochet and chambray mix is brilliant!

  14. Statement necklaces are so trendy and I usually stray away from them because I feel overdressed, I'm really gonna work on incorporating them into my wardrobe to give me more variety. Thanks, for the inspiration.

  16. So much to love about this post. Your unusual take on blue and orange ... works like a charm and you won't meet yourself walking down the street! Your drawing ... gotta begin mine again. You gave us a little jewel to look at! Then, the connections to ancient design and aesthetics. Love your notes there. Some day I'll trot out my Celtic torc mini-collection and we can chat!
    I put a link to this post from mine today, to show your Blue/Orange styling.
    Have a great week,
    Jan

  21. Gorgeous combination. The necklace on lace is a great idea. I too have discovered necklaces this week after organizing my jewelry. It''s fun to focus on a new (to me) accessory.
