The Chunky Choker Collection

As I was telling you in my last post, I´ve been acquiring costume and silver jewelry left and right nowadays but it´s got to stop because I´m broke. lol! Let´s start first with the necklaces like this two-tone chain necklace in gold and neon orange which a lot of you had already seen in the blog:

Then I thought: ¨Why not try something trendy this time?¨

So this leopard-inspired necklace was the next target. It was too heavy (by the way) that I had to take it off just after a few hours of wearing it. Then yesterday while trying to put it on again, the thin wire where those gold toned ¨arrow heads¨  were strung together broke. It was inevitable, the wire was very thin and the ¨arrow heads¨ were heavy. So I had no choice but to remove the wire and the fletches with it. What a relief  because the necklace was lot lighter after that and I could wear this for the whole day without breaking my neck!

This was the pearl necklace which I´ve been telling you in my last post. The clasp was ingenious! Now, I don´t get cross eyed anymore when I put on a necklace, at least for this pretty number. ;)

Lastly, another chain and pearly necklace. The pearls are tied to the chain link by a nylon thread. I hope that that the nylon thread will hold for a while.Crossing my fingers because I haven´t debuted this yet outside.

Chunky necklaces are perfect statement pieces but can be a bit delicate to maintain. I´m glad though that these are all costume jewelry and are quite cheap because aside from the fact that I can´t afford the real chunky ones, if they break, I wouldn´t have to break the bank again to have them repaired! So what have you been hoarding nowadays? ;)

Enjoy the weekend, y´all!
