One of the biggest trends of fall 2009 jewelry is statement necklaces. From giant metal flowers to big rocks and gemstones, bold and chunky multi-chains are everywhere. I like the idea of statement necklaces, they’re the type of pieces that will transform a simple outfit into something glamorous. However, I’ll never wear these huge oversized necklaces (I mean the real HUGE ones). They spice up looks on the runway, but are not for everyday life. At least not for me. ;)
What I really love are pearls, pearls not in a simple single strand, but mixed with chains and ribbons. That kind of old world charm with a modern flair is so beautiful. Inspired by a friend, I DIYed an old pearl necklace to something new.
