Unchain my heart

Can I tell you how much I love this necklace? It is so different than anything I have in my jewelry box-- or even anything I've seen in stores-- but I adore it. Handmade by Nicole Ho of the Singapore-based OpusMuse, this ruched, silk/chiffon wonder has the perfect name: Nectar. Sweet, romantic and reminiscent of flowers. I'm thinking roses. Still, the chunky brass chain keeps it a bit edgy, not to frou-frou. I think it would look fantastic as the standout piece in a simple outfit, like a white tank and jeans. You would definitely be the center of attention wearing this! The chain is adjustable, so it can be worn as a long or short necklace and, if the the mood strikes, it can even be wrapped around the wrist as a cuff. If I had $51 to spend, sweet Nectar would be mine right now.

So my question is, would you wear this necklace/cuff? Or is it a bit too "look at me" for your taste?

Btw, Nicole's Etsy shop is full of other fabulous finds, just check out this lariat necklace, woven necklace, charm necklacestud earrings, and pink/gold bracelet.

It's love x6.

I'm not a big jewelry person, but I do love the way it looks as a bracelet
