Spring is struggling to arrive in my neighborhood, and it’s got me craving floppy hats, sundresses, and – above all – bright colors!!
I discovered this SheBee necklace while I was researching a story for Instore Magazine, and I loved it so much that I had to feature it here, too.
Isn’t it fabulous?
This joyful SheBee piece is called the Daisy Chain necklace – a whimsical name that perfectly captures this necklace’s playful but lovely spirit.
SheBee’s Daisy Chain necklace is sterling silver with rhodium plating, which makes for that rich, dark look to the metal. It’s set with colorful sapphires and tourmillated quartz, with gold-plated detailing.
Mixed metals, mixed stones, mixed colors – no wonder I like it so much. Visual interest galore!
Here’s a closer look at those daisy-like elements: you can see the tourmillated quartz inside its gold-plated border, surrounded by colorful sapphires in darker metal.
I think it’s the use of the tourmillated quartz that makes this necklace as utterly fantastic as it is – it’s an unexpected texture, and it introduces a slightly more serious, organic element into the design.
I was originally just going to show you the necklace, but I can’t resist sharing the earrings and bracelet with you as well.
Here’s the bracelet!
It’s an open cuff, with sapphire and quartz elements on the ends. I love how this piece transitions from simplicity to bursts of vivacity at the ends. And that mixed metal detail is subtle, but the gold adds such a good pop of contrast between the quartz and the dark silver of the rest of the bangle.
And here are the earrings. Long and linear, with a dazzling, asymmetrical progression of colors.
I love how much variation SheBee is getting out of rearranging this motif – it’s flowers, it’s fans, it’s vertical, it’s horizontal – these pieces are clearly all related, stylistically, but they each feel unique.
I’ve been a fan of SheBee’s bright, playful designs for some time, but I don’t own anything by this super fun brand myself yet. I’m thinking I may need to remedy that. Who doesn’t need more happy jewelry in their lives?
What do you think of these pieces, my dears? Do you love them too?
