Guest Blog: The Beauty of Long Pendants by Natalie Zee Drieu of craftzine + coquette.

When I knew I was going on vacation and that I needed guest bloggers, I immediately thought of Natalie Zee Drieu of craftzine + coquette. 1) I knew she would say yes (thanks, nat) & 2) I love her style & knew that she would share some amazing stuff that both you & I would want. Well, what do you think? I know I want of each of these! – jen

I have been obsessed lately with the look of a long pendant. Whether it’s a striking large piece or a small cluster of delicate charms, there’s something wonderful about a long piece of jewelry dangling from your neck. It’s perfect to wear casual over a t-shirt and jeans, or the right necklace can be that perfect “pop” on a dress. It’s simple, yet stylish and let’s be honest here, doesn’t way a ton of bricks like those gargantuan bib necklaces! Kris Nations a Bay Area jewelry designer who’s a friend of mine has a new Peacock Pendant Necklace ($98) that I’m coveting. The double chain is très chic and adjustable in height so you can have it as high or as low as you’d like! I was lucky enough to have her show me this necklace in her studio last fall while she was working on it and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

Here are more beautiful pendants from indie designers:

Gold Leaves and Owl Pendant by Sora Designs ($32.50)

Silver Feather Necklace by Beazuness ($20)

Charmed Necklace by nettyjewels ($49)

Paris Oui, So French by birdzNbeez ($19)

Wooden Rimu Necklace – Teacup and Teapot by SuperVery ($24)
