From top: A Little Dot Cubic from Etsy, Quarry Triangle Necklace & Hunter Gather(er) Stone Necklace
I'm not one usually for wearing jewelry and shunned away from them for the longest time. On regular days, I have a watch and engagement ring, nothing more. Lately however, I've been quite taken with minimalist handmade jewelry that seem to add a touch of je ne sais quoi to an outfit - the kind of jewelry that seem to elevate a simple combination of tee shirt and jeans into something with a little more personality.
Over the weekend I had some time to saunter downtown and check out the sales at Barney's and Totokaelo. I am happy to report that I picked up nothing at Barney's (leftovers of a dismal selection of Band of Outsiders, Isabel Marant and Rag & Bone). At Totokaelo however my willpower was tested and broken. I tried on various items that didn't quite fit but pick up two new Hope Byronesse tees (my collection is complete! Black, white and stripes!) and the Quarry by Ninh Wysocan Triangle Necklace that I've been pining over for a really long time. For some reason, the abstract shapes seem really amusing and interesting to me.
Along with what I call costume jewelry as shown above, I have a pearl lariat necklace which was the first jewelry the then boyfriend ever bought me and a Wouters & Hendrix necklace I bought on sale from La Garconne. I occasionally also wear a white gold necklace with a cross that my mum got for me for my 16th birthday. I think I'm finally at the point where I can say no to any new jewelry but since I saw the interview with Charlotte Gainsbourg posted by Miss Sophie, I'm now wanting a simple diamond solitaire on a short necklace.
