Turquoise & Brass Graduated Pendant Necklace

Oversized pieces of jewelry are great when you need to accessorize a boring outfit, feel like making a bold statement (and for a multitude of other reasons) but, sometimes a smaller more delicate looking piece is better suited for your outfit or look. I wanted to make a necklace that was smaller in size, but still had a bohemian vibe and of course, made a statement. Since there are not too many lakeshore lavaliere necklaces that are delicate yet bohemian, I decided to make this turquoise and brass graduated pendant necklace.  This turquoise & brass graduated pendant necklace is the perfect accessory when you want to make a statement but don’t want to wear a large piece of jewelry to do it. Elegant and simple, the necklace still has a bohemian feel and catches the eye with the beautiful turquoise color of the 13 pendants and the way they contrast with the simple satin brass chain:

Bib Necklaces

Today’s post is allll about bib necklaces– after making the turquoise and coral bohemian bib necklace to spice up my blah outfit choices during this bleak Chicago winter (ignore that yesterday was 65 degrees outside…I have faith that later today or tomorrow it will be frigid and bleak and drop back down to the single digits) I really fell in love with creating different pieces in this style. Each bib necklace can be completely different despite the fact that they all essentially are a combination of several layers of bead strands of increasing lengths. They can be loud or even muted depending on the color, they can be bohemian but also classic (i.e. silver accents with pearls)- there are so many different options to create a necklace like the two lakeshore lavaliere bib necklaces below by starting with the same design.

Different gemstones, metals, pendants and bead combinations make each one completely unique and change the way any necklace highlights or accents an outfit, but with a type of necklace that is as large as a bib necklace, the colors and components really do shape the style of your outfit or the statement that it makes. Funky and loud or muted and classic, I think bib necklaces might be my new favorite style for 2013.

Bohemian Turquoise & Coral 4 Layer Bib Necklace

Recently I realized that I’ve been wearing a lot of black-I tend to gravitate toward a nearly all black wardrobe in the Chicago winter months, and I know I’m not alone. I have been thinking about what type of necklaces are the best accessories to spice up an all black outfit, and I landed on the style of necklace called a bib necklace. Oversized with eye catching details, they can spice up a boring outfit and add that pop of color that it needs. I decided to make this one using raw brass and 4 graduated layers of turquoise chip nuggets and free-form coral with brass accents:

I just love how the turquoise and coral look together; this necklace has exactly the amount of color to accessorize a colorless outfit and make sure it looks anything but boring!
