Want! Over the Top Neckalces
I've become obsessed with over the top necklaces. I love anything with mutiple strands, tons of charms, asymmetrical layers and a lot going on. I started falling in love with super busy costume jewelry when I was working at Macy's selling mostly Betsey Johnson jewelry like this multi-layered charm necklace (pictured left).
These necklaces are great for adding interest to a basic outfit. Over the top necklaces can take jeans and tee to a whole new level. Since these are such statement pieces, they are the only accessory an outfit needs so they are pretty easy to style..
I've been seeing more and more of this fun jewelry, like this Subversive for Target necklace (pictured right), which I might go buy right after I finished this post.
I've been searching for more and more statement pieces like these since I tend to wear a lot of basics. So far, I've had the best luck finding amazing necklaces on Etsy. The styles range from lovely and layered to charms gone wild to cute and quirky.
Here of some of the great necklaces I've found there so far:
