Recently I came across this Oscar De La Renta necklace in Elle’s “Love in Lace” trend report and amongst the ample amount of lace items in the trend list, I was really stuck on it. At first I thought the necklace was actual lace until further inspection. That is when I realized the necklace is metal, which explains the price tag. I do like that the trend list had lace accessories as opposed to all lace clothing because I am not the biggest fan of lace as clothing. However, I do love lace as an accent. A part of me just had to give this necklace a go after seeing it. I do have skills in making metal jewelry, but for the sake of time, money, and the people who do not have the skills or access to making a metal necklace, I decided that regular lace would do.
