more is more

I just can’t get enough of chunky necklaces. My husband rolls his eyes whenever I come home with a new one …or he spots me trying to fly under his radar and casually sneak a new necklace into my outfit (I don’t even try any more – honest!).
Until recently I only wore silver jewellery, but now I’m embracing gold jewellery as well – and the chunkier the better. I also tended to follow the mantra of Coco Chanel without even meaning to. Before I left the house, I’d look in the mirror and remove one accessory.
I feel naked without earrings and a chunky cocktail ring, and unless I was heading off to exercise I wasn’t going to take off my watch or wedding and engagement rings, so it was usually the necklace that I forfeited. I don’t know what it was but I often just felt ‘overdone’ for some reason.
Now I’ve gone in the complete opposite direction, rarely leaving the house without a necklace and even layering necklaces.
As seen this year on the catwalks and sported by celebs, layering different necklaces on top of one another can create a unique statement piece without breaking the bank.
Only trick is to use items you’ve already got, and refrain from hitting the shops and leaving with twice as many necklaces!
