This entry was a fantastic excuse to browse around Etsy, looking at necklaces for hours, and then play with photoshop. I love jewelry. I think jewelry makes an outfit. I think jewelry can be an outfit. The “statement necklace” is the kind of necklace that makes an outfit. Its extra big or on a long chain. Its clever, playful, quirky. It grabs your eye… yes, glitter helps. People love the shinyyyy. It reveals something about your personality. Simply put: you’re making a statement with your necklace. What’s the statement about? That’s for the necklace to answer.
I’ve put together a little collection of what I consider statement necklaces. These are all going to reveal something about my personality because I only chose necklaces I’d want to wear. They are all from etsy.com, a wonderful website which you should definitely become familiar with if you haven’t already. Its a huge community of really talented craftsmen and artists. Not only that but you can find incredible things for really reasonable prices. Of course that isn’t always the case, but my point is: etsy has it all!
