When I look at Judy Geib’s work, I feel like I can imagine her as a child, filling notebooks with infinitely complicated doodles. Beautiful doodles, of course. Creative and light, so effusive as to almost float off the page.
That’s the first thing pictured when I looked at these two Judy Geib necklaces: two beautiful doodles being peeled off of the page and magically turning into precious metal. I’m not sure if that’s an image that will make sense to anyone else, but that’s what my brain does with these pieces.
This first Judy Geib necklace is made of airy silver pieces delicately connected by tiny 18k gold chain links, with one lovely bezel set sleeping beauty turquoise. Isn’t it cool beyond all reason? The color contrast of the mixed metals, the geometry of the floaty individual elements, the eclectic feel of the piece as a whole.
The necklace is versatile, as these two helpful shadow lades will now demonstrate. At 40 inches, it can be worn long and lean or doubled over to created a layered look.
Which way do you prefer: long or doubled?
Judy Geib necklace #2 is 18k gold with several deliciously green emeralds adding an extra punch of color to the look. Geib’s signature aesthetic is clear when you look at the two pieces: loopy, lacy lightness abounds. I love the colors happening here between the rich emeralds and the buttery yellow 18k gold.
This emerald and gold necklace is much shorter than the first necklace we looked at today, only 16 inches. This one’s not meant to be doubled.
So there you have it. One silver and turquoise beauty, one emerald and yellow gold. You know I’m going to ask it because I always do: which of these two Judy Geib necklaces would you choose if you could only choose one?
