An artisan made necklace adds sparkle! A great necklace also adds a feminine focal point and supports small business, when it is handmade by an entrepreneur. Below I am wearing the Alem Necklace by Birabiro, a talented friend of mine.
I love the spin that this artisan made necklace adds to my outfit! Literally and figuratively !
I was excited to meet Lydia once again. We met earlier at a Chicos Event which you can read about here . The jewelry that she wore at this event stood out and I happily learned she had made each piece herself! I love jewelry, as you know, and also made some necklaces many years ago. Certainly I was excited to see her again and to buy a piece of her jewelry which is so unique and bold.
Our lunch destination was Pauls’s on Times Square which was chic and had fabulous pizza! A shot from the restaurant.
Below some photos from this wonderful lunch date; you can see Lydia and my new artisan made necklace against the lively orange sweater.
The bottom half of my #OOTD includes many eye-catching elements. Since the sun was refusing to shine, I decided that I would do my best to shine a bit myself! My stripes and sequined sweater by Little Marc Jacobs was bright, and looked well with my new necklace. Grommets trim details the skirt.
This statement piece; my artisan made necklace SHINES !
This spherical and whimsical necklace is below, a shot I took at home.
Artful detail is something I cherish, whether it is something I am wearing, or something that I see around me. Filigree is stark against the sky and reminds me of the necklace a bit, although this fence is linear. When I passed this fence I had to get a snap!
REMINDER: ALWAYS LOOK UP !
An artisan made necklace or ring can really add individuality to an outfit. I do not like to be wearing the same things that others are wearing, and I love to support small and local businesses, especially female owned businesses. Birabiro is a wonderful example of all of those things. Visit her instagram here.
You may also remember that I wore local, artisan made clothing when I visited Atlantis Cove. I bought my grommet skirt locally, and it is sold out at that location, however it is available here in red. I also love this white grommet mini here.
