Trend Alert: Layers? Cake!

January 31, 2007 by SheFindsGenevieve

As winter moves into its last gasp, it’s exciting to think we can put our scarves away until next year and let our necks breathe a little. This spring, the best way to show off those necks is to wear necklaces, and lots of ’em.

Layered necklaces may sound tricky, but for the timid, there are plenty of ready-made layering options, from the classic to the whimsicalicon. For those who prefer to cook up their style one piece at a time, a recipe for layering is presented below.

You will need: a willingness to mix gold and silver finishes, a love of texture, an understated outfit.

1. Begin with a simple chain. Make sure your links are delicate and airy, not chunky.

2. Mix with a second chain, this one with beads or other color accents. The scale should be kept small, so as not to detract from later statement pieces.

3. Fold in another “color piece”; this can be coordinatingicon if you prefer to keep the look uniform, or contrastingicon if you would like more visual interest. Don’t be afraid of texture here; get your hands dirty.

4. Season to taste with an assymetric pendanticon. Please note the final result will be just as tasty without; this is for those who want to make a statement.

5. To finish, garnish with a unique piece closer to the collarbone, such as this handmade picture pendant. For best results, echo colors, finishes, and shapes from other layers.

If you think you’re ready to try this recipe yourself but aren’t sure, just remember: if you like the pieces, the final product is bound to be delicious. Bon appetit.
