I adore big, big, big necklaces! I have one really long and heavy in gold colour.

Hi Couture Carrie,

Thank you for having stopped my blog. Check it another time if you have a mood!

I love these bib-look necklaces. I also think the heavy necklines on the dresses are a beautiful touch. It's like the designer's vision extended into jewelry for a moment in time.

Johanna - Life by Me said...

I´m not so in to bib necklaces, but I can actually see myself in something like the one from :)

Seeker said...

OMG I love them all, can't pick just one.

Nice to hear from ya! :D

I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving as well, and spending time with the relos and family.

I'm in love with the fifth one, the Requiem neckelace - I believe? and the Valentino one. It looks gorgeous on the girl.

You're right, it is nice eye candy for the hols. And a nice way to make a fashion statement.

-adding to my christmas list-

its a great statment those big necklaces, i love them

Unknown said...

i love them. I made a fringe one and it's for sale in my etsy shop but I don't want to sell it because I love it so much. Working on a couple other pieces too. These will most likely go out of style quickly then come back with a vengeance in a couple years. just my theory though. Loving them!!!

I am absolutely loving all the bold pieces of jewellery latelty, especially since i haven't been wearing any! AMAZING. x

I love the Valentino necklace!

WendyB said...

One retailer was trying to force me to do necklaces like this, so I'd fit in with the rest of their merchandise. My feeling was is if everyone else is doing it, why should I?

Song of Style said...

im in love with all the necklaces!
I think I'm going to treat myself of a nice huge necklace after i get paid!

Unknown said...

I love statement jewelry! If I had to choose one, I would go for Isharya Orbit! It's lovely! :)
