I’ve worn this necklace from Dejarnette New Orleans about a handfull of times since I got it, and every single time I wear it, someone wants to touch it; they don’t believe it’s glass. It gets a lot of attention, to say the least, and deservedly so; you won’t see anything like it anywhere else. I like to wear it with black on top to showcase the clear glass, but really, you can wear it like a string of pearls – with everything.
I have to admit, the first time I wore it, I was constantly touching it myself. It’s hard to believe that you’re wearing glass beads around your neck, but while they look delicate, they’re really not. The glass is fairly thick and there’s no danger of breakage, at least not until you drop it.
The designer, Katherine, tells me she’s going to be working on a matte black glass bead necklace soon, so check the website for that, and browse her shop for lots of other very cool pieces.
