obsession name: Confetti Necklace, by Erickson Beamon
where to buy: shopbop.com
why the obsession:
So part of the reason why I started this blog is that it allows me to fantasize about the most beautiful, unique fashion pieces around, regardless of price point. I may not always purchase what I feature due to my budget limitations, but hey – a girl can dream right? (yes, in her blog!!!!) And in my dreams, I have purchased this latest fashion find on shopbop – the Erickson Beamon Confetti Necklace. HOW GORGEOUS! First off, I don’t have zoom capabilities on the image above, but there is absolutely great attention to detail to this necklace, and that is what I am completely amazed by. I love the mix of crystals and color – if you look close, it is a carefully arranged mess of matte and clear crystals in every color and shape possible (how stunning is that middle piece, it looks like it’s been partly slashed with an array of crystals). And, the asymmetric design on the necklace adds that edge that gives this necklace its cool factor. One thing I absolutely adore about Erickson Beamon designs is that necklace chains are not just an afterthought (which I think for some designers, they just design a cool pendant and just throw it on a chain). On this particular piece, gold highlights amongst the silver chains are such a unique detail. AND what is definitely an afterthought on most jewelry – on this necklace, the confetti pattern extends all the way to the clasps. Thinking about it, not only is the front of the necklace so detailed and so beautiful, but with such cute clasps, you’re also wearing the design on the back. With a name like “confetti necklace” it certainly lives up to its name, with all thoughts of party fun!!!!
