Part Victorian, part punk rock – but totally glamorous – this chicly sharp statement necklace is one of my FAVORITES. I usually don’t sketch out my designs before embarking on the actual assembly; I’m the type that, like a mad scientist, mixes a little of this and that, hoping the end result works in my favor. With this piece, the shine of the soft pearls and sparkle of the vintage brooch (used as a focal piece) seriously begged for some edge – cue the safety pins and dripping gunmetal chain. So much yes.

Keeping the palette restrained to neutrals and a deep navy gave sophistication to the piece and cut the cloying sweetness of the pearls. I tangled everything up, braiding chain and beads to give the notion of an unfinished aspect – a certain amount of grunge – as if it had been picked from the rubble.
