For those of you who follow me in the home design world (and know me well!), you know that I like simple designs, good materials and timeless pieces. The same goes for jewelry. I am drawn to pieces that work today and for years down the road. I like simple statement pieces that I quickly can throw on and immediately look & feel good in. (Hey, a good piece even replaces makeup, ha!).
I have always liked long necklaces and I absolutely love all the pieces we sell in our own store but something different has lately been brewing in my mind. I knew exactly what I
wanted needed (!) as a fashion statement but I couldn’t find “my style” a.n.y.w.h.e.r.e. So, I decided to team up with my good friend and talented silver jewelry designer, Asa Daxberg, and have her put my idea in motion.
Together we have worked on a series of necklaces all based on the same tassel design but where the stone and color will vary.
EVERY SINGLE ONE is designed for my own personal wants and needs. I have put effort into every detail. Only good quality sterling silver has been used along with beautiful semi precious gemstones handpicked by myself. Colors have been mixed for specific looks. The necklaces are unique and handmade in the US.
The key pendant is always a simple leather tassel. (I have always adored tassels!). The tassels are made of really soft, quality, Italian lambskin.
The first tassel necklace I am introducing is my Splendid Nautical/4th of July Necklace.
I swear, the only thing I can find to wear for 4th of July is glittery silver Antennas (!) and plastic star necklaces! Come on, folks! For the big National Day!
I envisioned something relaxed chic and something that will look good with all that white I normally wear for July 4th. And something that could be used for all summer celebrations.
So, here it is. Our Splendid Nautical/4th of July Necklace. A Splendid Avenue first. (I think it would work really great with the dress above).
I have picked a long, stylish “uneven beads” sterling silver necklace that is more sparkly than most. A pretty red sea coral and a natural blue lapis stone have been added to the white Italian leather tassel (with a sterling silver cap) and Asa’s signature hand hammered silver medallion. (Here seen on my North West bestie sis, Stacey!),
Three more designs will be added to the “new” store, launching soon!
Here is the inspiration for my other Tassel Necklaces:
1. City Chic
2. Emerald Green
3. White Bliss
And that is all I am going to say for now (but I have a feeling you can already envison the looks!).
The Splendid Nautical/4th Of July tassel necklace can be purchased in our store Splendid Avenue, here. If interested, don’t wait too long to place your order. Asa needs about a week to finish each piece. Each necklace comes nicely wrapped. So a perfect gift too.
Happy new week to you all. Can’t believe it’s already June!
