I am a complete and total jewelry junkie. Accessories, for the most part, can not only make the outfit, they can alter it dramatically. Something subdued and minimal can become instantly avant-garde with the right jewelry piece and no piece has a greater impact than the work-of-art necklace.
A work-of-art necklace is like any other piece of art, only you get more mileage out of it because you wear it around your neck for all the world to see. It is the kind of piece that can radically transform an outfit- you can use it to complete a relatively subdued ensemble like Jessica Alba, or to add more wow to an already standout-look like Olivia Palermo. It is also highly versatile and can be worn with your fancy cocktail frocks, funky party dresses, or $5 tee-shirts.
