You may have seen celebs rockin’ sassy tassel necklaces on the runways, and for good reason. They’re elegant, easy to throw on and totally in tune with the swinging 70s trend for this spring.

This particular tassel necklace has special significance because it is made from a very special silver grey tassel. During my F.I.T. days, the famous french perfumery Caron held a competition to design their storefront window for the annual Bridal march down Madison Avenue, and boy were my friends and I amazed when we found out our concept took first prize! Not really knowing what the heck we were doing (were we actually putting together a store window on Madison Ave.?! we wondered), we toiled for days perfecting everything in our window until it was exactly the vignette of romance we imagined it to be. On opening night, Caron held a cocktail reception honoring the new window and I still remember the feeling of getting a goodie bag (I’d never gotten one at a fancy party before!) and reaching in to find, amongst other trinkets, this silky tassel. So that I would never forget that feeling, I slipped a chain through it and wore it around my neck – and it still smells like Caron‘s signature scent.

Our winning Caron window. It was a vision of a bride and groom gazing into separate mirrors getting ready for their big day – while at the same time staring into one another’s eyes. Not bad for a couple of kids, eh?

Being from Queens, NY, I’m no stranger to the name necklace. And after Carrie wore hers on Sex and the City, they started popping up on everyone from Beyonce to Christina Aguilera to Nicki Minaj (also a Queens girl – represent!). But with the price of gold what it is today, you might not want to pay an arm and a leg just for something to wear around your neck. I didn’t, which is why I made my own name necklace from my old Amex Gold card. Read on to see how easy it is!

Last weekend Shinobi and I attended the spectacular event that was our friends MoonJoon and Sung Je’s wedding. At the end of the night, we were allowed to take the gorgeous floral arrangements, which I enjoyed on my dining room table for about a week before I divided it into smaller vases. The tiny green hydrangeas, which I like to call snowballs, were particularly lovely and I really wanted to show them off – so I made them into this bubble necklace. Enjoy!
