Okay men, this post will probably be of little interest to you. Just sayin’ before you read it and wonder why you wasted your time.
Now, for the ladies.
I’m not a jewelry whore. As with the color of the clothes I wear (black), I’m a minimalist, so you’ll never see me wearing a matching set of earrings, necklace, and bracelet. I actually really dislike that look on a woman—makes me think she’s adorned herself like a Christmas tree. Just my opinion.
Don’t worry. Not even my friends agree with me. They think I’m boring, monochromatic, and should take more risks with my wardrobe.
So, I decided to buy this crazy necklace, only I didn’t know it was crazy when I bought it. It fit my subtle taste. With numerous grey strands made of microscopic glass beads, I imagined it would go perfectly with all my black dresses.
A NYC architect who became an industrial and jewelry designer made it. Unique pieces intrigue me, so it was all the more reason I liked it. I wore it to my first book club meeting with the fabulous women of S.W.E.E.T. They all commented on the unusual piece, how it had a crepe-like feel to it, how it reflected the light so oddly.
I suppose I’d forgotten the necklace was made of glass because it certainly didn’t feel like it. That was, until we took a picture with me wearing it. See for yourself.
Kind of creepy, isn’t it? Happy Halloween, all.
