Summer Necklaces


The Memorial Day holiday has just passed ushering in the true summer season. Light weight and simple clothing is generally the norm for this time of year. How great to be able to liven up your wardrobe with a unique statement necklace. The trends are all over the place this season but I’ve picked out a few interesting and moderately priced pieces for your consideration that just might make summer even more fun.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Stella Pier Antiques Show in New York City. There were a myriad of beautiful booths displaying folk art, fine art, antiques, vintage clothing and vintage jewelry.

One of my favorite booths was that of Marcy Drexler aka – Little Shiny Objects. Marcy is a long time vintage jewelry dealer who consistently presents a gorgeous display of vintage Bakelite as well as an exciting assortment of costume jewelry.

I captured a few images that I thought you might enjoy.

Check out the incredible green and fuchsia necklace by Vendome and the staggering rows of carved and inlaid vintage Bakelite bracelets. I’ve been fascinated by Bakelite for many years and have always been attracted to the fun shapes and colors. I really think the appeal comes from the fact that it all looks like candy. Subconsciously, I probably want to taste every piece.

I should also mention Marcy’s collection of poodle purses, in the gallery above, which soon will be gracing the pages of Italian Vogue. Look for them at your local newsstand.

All in all a great booth filled with shiny vintage treasures.
