When I was in San Francisco last week for my two (awesome) design camps, I noticed Lisa Congdon's lovely neon pink necklace collection, and I was sore jeals. Lisa dresses a lot like she paints -- lots of neutrals like black and white and gray, then BAM! Some big vibrant color. I myself am a fan of this wardrobe method, so it surprises me that I don't already have any neon accessories. I intend to remedy that, and here are some pretty choices I found:
I like the gold on single facets of the wood in the left-hand picture, and I really love the pink + neutral with the gold chain.
Left: FIGUREframe, $18. Right: A Merry Mishap, $30.99.
This company -- an English joint called Oelwein -- has some really beautiful necklaces in all different shades of neon, hung on a natural leather cord. I want to wear them all together at once.
Wood + paint + gold + neon pink cording = Love. In the end, these both seemed a little long for my purposes, but they are still awesome. And I can't resist things styled with confetti.
Left: Soft Gold Studio, $38. Right: Oelwein, $21.47.
Perfection! This is the one I ended up going with, and I think it is a good combination of all the things I loved about the others: gold, pink, on a chain, unobtrusive, not too long, etc. Just right.
I hope you have been riveted by this difficult decision. Go forth and accessorize, neonly.
THE ONE: Minoux Jewelry Shop, $44.
