Necklaces: Pendants, chains, beads & stones

I love necklaces.  Who doesn't?  Did you know that necklaces have been around since ancient civilizations and pre-date the invention of writing?  Cavemen made necklaces out of natural materials.  After the Bronze Age, people began to melt metal and cast it into shapes.  Modern times have produced better ways to melt metals, electroplating, and lasers.

History aside, I love collecting jewelry and my most favorite pieces have a special story or some significance to me other than just being beautiful. Emily and I spent some time today going through our necklaces and photographing them on a dress form at her house.  I love mixing and layering chains and pendants.  One of my favorite necklaces came as a part of an Alice & Olivia tank top.  Don't be afraid to mix and layer your pieces (old & new) to create a more personal look.
