Make a Statement

I love costume jewellery, the bigger the better! Beads, bangles, baubles in fact anything shiny usually catches my eye.
I have large collection of vintage bead necklace that I have picked up over the years but at the moment I just love statement necklaces. I was so excited with my newest acquisition arrived from Tiz Designs I just had to share it with you. It's a beautiful black and silver ethnic inspired coin piece

While I was taking this pic I thought, why not show you some of my favourite pieces too? So here they are

They are L-R: a vintage lucite amber beads, a blue and gold multi strand beaded necklace (Primark), a three row pearl necklace (Vivienne Westwood), a vintage long faceted glass bead and brass findings necklace and a faux coral and gold necklace (Primark). Sorry about the poor pictures!

All this thinking about lovely necklaces set me looking on Folksy and here are a few of my favourite statement necklaces from fellow folksy sellers:

A beautiful blue cameo collar from Oh Sew Vintage

This ever so stunning necklace from Madam CC

This quirky, festive piece from Scars & Stars is already on my Christmas list

I found it hard to choose just one from Maxine Veronica but I think this is my favourite

This baroque necklace from The Whimsical Wren looks so wintry, perfect for the snow queen herself
