CURRENTLY CRAVING: Jene Despain Jewelry

I'm going through a major necklace faze at the moment. From bold statement pieces to delicate everyday chains, I just can't get enough. And there is nothing better than finding necklaces that are versatile enough to wear from day-to-night.

As a former New York City resident {during my early PR days} I've always had a love for all things that represent the city. Upon being introduced to new-to-me deisgner, Jene Despain, I knew that I had to share her incredible pieces. 

What makes every piece from Jene Despain's jewelry collection so unique is that they each represent a bit of New York City. And if you look really closely, it will become a bit more ovious on the famous landmarks and city staples that clearly inspires each collection. A few of my favorite picks from Jene Despain Jewelry are:

1. Spikes and Leather Necklace - Although this is one of the few pieces not directly inspired by a particular New York City landmark, this necklace {to me} truly captures the city when it comes to style. Powerful and brilliant, the spikes + leather combination brings together two key styles that never go out of fashion. Wear it with an equally bold blouse for a standout look. 

2. Rockefeller Collor with Amethyst Swarovski - As one of the most prestigious complexes on Manhattan Island, there is no mistaking the Rockefeller Center. I remember walking past this bulding in awe during my first weeks living in the city. And I feel the same way about this necklace, which truly encompasses the building's power and beauty. For a bold look, pair this necklace from the Roaring 10's Collection with a peplum top to make a statement. 

3. Barclay Necklace - Based on the design of the iconic Barclay-Vesey builidng {a.k.a the first art-deco skyscraper in New York City}, this necklace from the Roaring 10's Collection mixes large and small chains for a tough, yet sophisticated look. Perfect for accesorizing a simple t-shirt or dressing up a cocktail dress. 

4. Astoria Necklace with Oynx - Inspired by the infamous Manhattan landmark, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, this delicate necklace is part of the Roaring 10's Collection. Besides being inspired by my favorite landmark in the city, I love how simple and chic this necklace is with the hint of oynx stones. How perfect is this for an everyday look layered with other delicate pieces?
