My very favorite necklace.
As you may imagine – and as may be the case for you if you make jewelry, too – I have a significant amount of jewelry. There are pieces that I wear with certain outfits, pieces for special occasions only and pieces that I wear only once in a while.
Every so often I get hooked on a piece of jewelry that I wear all the time, even almost every single day.
For me, that is this necklace.
I wear this necklace all the time. The other day I was at my stepdaughter’s graduation party and I had given my stepdaughter an album filled with photos I had taken for prom for her. I was in one of the photos and I was wearing this necklace. I was also wearing the necklace at the party. My mom pointed this out to me and really all I could do was laugh. What can I say? I love this necklace.
So if you’ve been following along with this blog, you may have done my free mini workshop this week. (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) I mentioned that turquoise was one of my favorite colors. That I wear mostly black and white, but when I do wear colors, the colors I most often wear are in the turquoise/green/blue color scheme. So that brings us to the first reason I love this necklace.
#1 It’s one of my favorite colors.
It matches my outfits when I do wear colors. I also wear it with my black and white outfits, too and it adds a pop of color to them.
#2 It’s my favorite stone.
The necklace using my favorite stone, which is turquoise. I have a lot of turquoise jewelry. Turquoise is a protector stone and I love that about it, but I mostly love the color.
#3 It goes with a lot of my outfits.
I mentioned this above, but it goes with a lot of my clothes.
#4 I love the design.
I absolutely love this design. As you may know, I really like simple, clean jewelry designs. This piece is a little more complicated, but it’s still simple in design.
I also love that it combine techniques. My husband even noticed it the first time I wore it. Well, he said that necklace looks like 2 of your necklaces combined.
And that was really the point with this necklace. Combining designs in a different way.
#5 I love wearing my own designs and I’m particularly proud of this one.
This necklace feels like me. I designed it. People will often comment on my jewelry and I’m especially proud to tell them that I designed and made this piece.
