1920s Necklaces Art Deco Chain Necklaces

With the adaptation of The Great Gatsby, many are predicting that this film is going to rock our world and no doubt kick start a 1920s fashion and culture revival. With the costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and show-stopping jewelry by Tiffany,  I decided to pay homage to this classic by showing some gorgeous long chain necklaces with a 1920s vibe.

American model, actress, occasional stylist and designer. 
Erin Wasson needs no introduction; that face, that signature beauty mark, that aforementioned (self-described) style and that moniker says it all. We teamed up with the folks at Elle Magazine and popped by her pad in Venice, Calfornia, for a shoot with the iconic model-turned-designer-turned-actress (remember her cameo in Coppola’s Somewhere?), we were welcome by Wasson and her fresh, shorter ‘do. While it’s difficult to nail down one title for Wasson (after all, her résumé reads like an encyclopedia of every creative field) we think she said it best: “[I’m a] Jack of all trades; master of some.”

“I would describe my style as a woman channeling Johnny Cash mixed in with a little Rod Stewart pre-disco days and a little sweetheart of the rodeo hanging out at the beach.”

Ombre Hair

Ombre, is a French term for a hair coloring trend in which the bottom portion of your hair looks lighter than the top portion. "Done haphazardly, the effect can create a stark, unappealing contrast" according to wikiHow. If done correctly, with more natural hues at the roots and gradually dyed lightening at the ends, this trend can look interesting if not glamorous. It's been spotted on many celebs: Rachel Bilson, Alexa Chung, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Lopez, Mischa Barton, Amber Le Bon and more.

This style can be worn with either short or long hair and that the highlights can be blonde, light brown, red or even brunette.

Customer Feedback

Oh, how there is nothing that makes my day quite like getting good feedback from my customers. It makes all the hours and hours of designing and creating worth it. I get teary eyed when I read comments like these:


"Jen I got the necklace yesterday and it is absolutely perfect! I can not thank you enough!!!!! Brenda"

"It's absolutely beautiful - quality craftsmanship and fast shipping. Many thanks!!"

"I've been looking for earrings like these for such a long time and now they're on my ears :) Thanks Jen they are gorgeous!"

"The necklace arrived fast. It is beautiful. I wore it yesterday and received many compliments. Thank you!"

"I loved this bracelet when I received it but it was too small - some confusion over the size. Jen was immediately responsive and we got it all sorted out. Thank you Jen. It's delightfully refreshing to have customer service as a priority."

"Jen was incredibly nice and professional. I love the necklace too! Win win"

"All I can say is AWESOME!!! I LOVE IT!!! THANK U SOOOO MUCH!!"

"The necklace arrived save and sound and looks absolutely stunning! Thanks a lot!"

"I have received so many compliments on this necklace, I am so glad I ordered it! You are so talented!"

"So pretty...exactly what I was looking for. Exactly as pictured and speedy delivery."

"Beautiful necklace, really fast delivery, and thoughtfully packaged. Great transaction and great seller."

Work In Progress

I decided to take a picture of some of the stones laid out on my design table. I have wire wrapped angel skin coral beads that I'm going to attach to a vintage butterfly pendant. And make one more necklace with the wire wrapped stones using the chalcedony pendant (aqua pendant). A Citrine stone with gold filled chain is almost complete. And I think I will make a pair of Peach Quartz Earrings with gold leaf chain to complement the Wire Wrapped Coral Bead Chain.

I absolutely love the color combination of coral and turquoise -- whether it's in the form of a pastel hue or bright hue -- the colors certainly complement one another. Hmmm, think I'll do a post on Coral and Turquoise next.
