So, this weekend, other than moving over to the new space in DUMBO with a whole bunch of boxes...(it was a schlepfest, let me tell ya!)...I found myself maniacally rooting around in my Big Bag of Clothes to Get Rid Of. Looking for fabric. To cut into strips. To braid. For no reason. Just because I had an idea in my head, and wanted to try it.
Well, it looks like I'm not alone...which is good, because my first attempt as an avant garde accessory designer was pretty silly looking. Anyway, I was totally surprised to find some of these fabric necklaces online today...as if psychically created by some of my favorite designers! Yay! They are having their day in the sun. And It's about freaking time.
The indisputable queens, in my opinion, of this type of jewelry, are the designers at Lizzie Fortunato. But Alice and Olivia have something really good going too. Kind of a cross between a scarf and a necklace, which I would like to see a few more of.
