new necklace: yay or nay?

woven chain necklace: Madewell (no longer available)

Ignoring the fact that I look mildly deranged in the photo above, how do we feel about this necklace?  I love how it looks -- except I can't seem to get it to lay correctly (i.e. flat) across my collarbone.  Maybe I need to shorten it slightly?


  1. wow what a stunning necklace!

    lovely blog ;)

  2. Love it! You don't look deranged, like the hair up. I have issues with getting necklaces to lay flat to, not sure what fixes it. I lengthened anecklace and it helped.

  3. Okay, it's decided -- I'm keeping it. Upon further reflection, I actually think that the necklace might be bent a certain way simply because of how it was packaged when it was sent to me. I have it laid out flat right now in the top drawer of my dresser, and if it doesn't fix itself over time, I'll visit a jeweler and see if they think that changing the length of the chain would help.

    Anna, I guess I don't really look deranged persay, but I think that I need to learn how to smile naturally in front of the camera. It makes me happy that you were a fan of my hair being up, though, because that's definitely how it looks all summer. East coast humidity isn't kind of my wavy hair.
