The bright, iridescent colors of the Caribbean simply dazzle in this choker. Octagon chandelier crystals create a caged pattern when stacked, and Swarovski mini round charms dangle daintily for dimension. Like many of my pieces, they’re never complete until something a bid “edgy” is added – hence the central Swarovski Spike pendant, introducing a slightly sharp, almost dangerously-chic element. Much like the thorn of a beautiful rose, I love to mix sweet and sass for a subtly contrasted aesthetic.
