This necklace, made of vintage beer bottlecaps and chandelier crystals, is mesmerizing to me. It’s so over the top, that i’m not sure my personality is big enough to carry it off. Aptly, the etsian who created it, goes by the seller name, Over the Top. The items in the shop definitely suit the name.
So, while i fear i lack the swagger this necklace might demand of its wearer, it makes me smile everytime i look at it! i’m not a big beer drinker, but i adore the design and color combo of the bottlecaps. i’m not usually a big statement necklace kinda gal, but i love the playfulness and in-your-face “I’m bringing my own good time!” attitude it gives. The color palette is gorgeous and the overall design/scale/composition is just so good! And since i generally try to live without fear when it comes to fashion, i’d be a sissy to shy away from a piece just because it’s bold, right? Rule #1: If something makes me smile, i wear it. Naysayers can zip the lip. : )
So yeah…i think i’d rock this to a bowling party with some old tattered jeans and a tee shirt. But then i’d come home and pin it up into an ornate, yellow glossy frame, lined with linen just the color of this mannequin in the pic, so it could be on display on my wall when it wasn’t around my neck. Mad props to Over the Top for pushing the limits and making me push mine!
