After months of teasing on Instagram, I’m happy to *finally* introduce the Joy-Full Tassel Necklace. There is a beautiful, rich story behind this design and I’m so thrilled with the way it came out!
This delightful design is inspired by older, classic inspirations, yet has a modern and chic feel:
The design came to be after I was looking though the collection of my Great Grandma Joy’s costume jewelry that I inherited. She had a fun tassel necklace that just spoke to me. Then, I decided to use gorgeous, yet durable, stainless steel as a callback to the time of Carnegie and the first mass production of this AMAZING metal (my nerd side is showing–ooops!). Finally, I added a bit of sparkle at the bottom as a nod to the Roaring 20s and The Great Gatsby.
My Great Grandma Joy was a ray of sunshine and such a spiritual and talented woman. How could I NOT be inspired by her? (She was pretty dang good on the harp!) This design is just like her: full of beauty and sophisticated. It’s Joy-Full!
The best part? You can customize it in any color(s) you want. With 6 strands & 40 color options, the possibilities are ENDLESS! Birthstones? Wedding Colors? Favorite Sports Team? Favorite Color Combo? Anything works!
I’ll be sharing more photoshoot pics and tassel inspiration in the next week, but for now, enjoy the tassel design & get customizing with your combo of choice!
