covetable textiles


That gorgeous necklace above is my mom’s. I suppose you’d call it a bib necklace… maybe even a quilted bib necklace. My step-dad got it for her in DC and I’ve been on the hunt to find one like it. The designer (ahem… artist) is named Theodora Elston and she’s been creating these wearable masterpieces since the 70s. My efforts to find more out about her have come up short and I’ve only managed to find 2 other pieces of hers online. It seems that she signs and numbers each piece, making it all the more special and unique.

I’ve been trolling Etsy and various fashion sites to find something in a similar style and haven’t had much luck. Thankfully, my search led me to a whole range of other necklaces that are just as lovely in their own special ways. There is something particularly sweet about the vibrant colors and unique construction of a knit, embroidered, or just plain cloth necklace. It’s not necessarily the accessory you’d use to spruce up a cocktail dress, but it will do wonders for your jersey dress or plain white tee. Best of all, the pieces I found are all on Etsy, which means they are all handmade with love by actual artisans. You really just can’t argue with that! I’ve yet to decide which piece will be jazzing up my Fall wardrobe… I may need to buy a few!;)
