I was inspired by an article in the March issue of Redbook to create two outfits with unusual color palettes (sorry I can’t link to it – couldn’t find it on the website, but in the print version, it’s on p. 136.). Although its moniker suggests otherwise, Stella & Dot’s Spring Awakening Necklace is perfect for now and later. Acrylic and glass stones in deep shades of coral, rose, and fuchsia hang from strands of cupchain to create this stunning statement piece.
Banish the grey skies of winter with a burst of color, hinting at spring’s arrival. A long-sleeve grey t-shirt under a burgundy wool dress sets off the vibrant colors in the necklace. Pair with tights and boots, and finish the look with our Soiree Studs in coral.
When the weather is warm, the Spring Awakening will look great with the vivid colors of the season. Try it with an emerald-green or fuchsia top and white jeans. I styled it with this neon yellow dress – talk about a pop of color! I finished the look with our Eden Studs and Eden Bangle.
The pictures don’t do the Spring Awakening Necklace justice. The colors and shimmering crystals cast a glow on the wearer’s complexion (the pretty kind, not the sweaty kind!) and the gold-plated chain is strong but not heavy. This necklace is an outfit-maker and is best worn with solid colors, small earrings, and one or two delicate bracelets.
If you haven’t seen our jewelry in person, you may not know that Stella & Dot is in the luxe category of jewelry – the same kind you would see in glass cases at Nordstrom, Anthropologie, and Banana Republic. In fact, our co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, Blythe Harris, started the accessories line at Banana Republic. We use semi-precious metals and stones when we can, and we source our materials all over the world. Many of our pieces are hand-crafted, and all of them are made with a little Stella & Dot love (look for a tiny heart and/or our name on most pieces.)
