I love statement necklaces, they are my go to accessory, when tying together an outfit. Naturally, when I saw this gorgeous bib necklace from Kelly Annie Jewelry, I fell head over heels! The Beautifully Bold Necklace is made of vintage coins from all over the world. As an avid traveler, I loved that the coins on my necklace come from places that I've visited (Portugal, Jerusalem, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, and the Netherlands.) It also featured coins from places that I hope to visit one day, (Bermuda, Hong Kong, Trinidad and Tobago, Norway, India and Seychelles!)
I think that the personal touch of the coins being from countries that I've visited, adds a lot of sentimental value to this necklace and makes me want to show it off even more. I'm all for jewelry that has meaning to you.
I also love the story behind how Kelly started making these designs. You can read more about it on her website, but basically she was shopping when she came accross a dish of vintage coins from all over the world, created a necklace, and got hooked! Since then she has grown her business and the types of coin jewelry she offers.
Definitely check out Kelly Annie Jewelry's website! She has tons of other gorgeous, handmade, jewelry made from vintage coins. The best part is that each piece is unique, and each coin has a ton of history behind it. No two pieces are the same! Another personal favorite are these adorable earrings from the website, definitely next on my list! The best part is, they are only $15.
Here's how I styled the necklace:
My off the shoulder sweater was from the flea market which I wrote about last week, here. My skirt was a hand-me-down from my cousin (thanks Ashley!) and is from the Gap. You can find a similar one here. I also am wearing my favorite riding boots from a few seasons ago.
