When in doubt, wear the black wrap dress and all your favorite jewelry. It never fails.

Seven strand of vintage bone beads, clasped with a brass hook. They probably came from a garage sale.

‘Only $1? These are decent, I can cut them up and make something.’

But somehow I never did.

This very long (40″) necklace proved to dramatic for me today. I ended up doubling the chain, knotting it and looping it around my neck.

Super long is interesting, but not practical.

This vintage glass bead necklace is made of turquoise-colored beads and a pendant in the same glass. I love that simplicity.

I wore this today layered with a necklace from April.

I like simplicity, but layered.

It is hot here this week and I feel like I can barely be bothered to dress at all. I want to wear a single layer of linen from head-to-toe and haunt shady places all day.

Duty calls, though. There are meetings, library books to return, that darn google+ to figure out. I had to dress.

This necklace used to have a too-large, too-busy pendant that I cut up years ago. It does feature some Japanese wound-glass beads in red and white, plus vintage coral and crystals. The strand itself isn’t busy-just cheery.

Perfect for a day like today.

Totally out-of-focus pictures. There is a strong possibility my iphone is dying…or in some state of photographic rebellion.
