Bespoke Beaded brooch necklace - what an alliteration! A combination of brooch and necklace, this versatile collection of necklaces were made in conjunction with London Fashion Week.
As pictured from London Fashion Week these necklaces are easily versatile across many types of outfits. They can be worn as a choker or using the brooches across blazer lapels, around a chunky collar, across the front of a dress as a belt adornment or in the back hanging into an open back. Or even pinned just outside a blazer, vest, or dress pocket to mimic the chains of a pocket watch.

A hand-stitched necklace with glass crystals, chains, and rope. Bonded with snake-printed leather and an over-sized clasp to ensure statement making from the back as well. Large clasps are another reoccurring theme through out Alice & Chains statement pieces. This piece came to life from a dream and sexes up a white, v-neck tee which allows the chains to hang, swaying down from the throat as seen in the second picture.
Dust off your Shoulders are a one-of-a-kind black, gold, & teal magnetic epaulette worn for an asymmetrical adornment to a blazer, dress, or sweater from London Fashion Week.
An epaulette is an adornment worn on the shoulder of one's outfit; think military, marching band or my inspiration the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. This epaulette, however, is not limited to just shoulder wearing. Created to be worn on the runway of London Fashion Week. The magnets allow this piece to be worn not just through the thicker materials of a blazer or sweater, but also along the back of a dress at the top of the waistline, creating a pop of fun for just the right dress. Or perhaps even along the top of a blazer pocket, mimicking menswear's current obsession with pocket squares and lapel pins as well as offering a throwback to brooches.

Ghost Story Necklace is a purple vintage-based statement necklace inspired by a jewelry-admiring and gift-adorning spirit.
Most Alice & Chains' pieces have a story; this necklace has one too, except of a different variety. This necklace was made while the designer lived in a house built in the mid-1800s by a doctor that she and her family believed was haunted by not just one, but several ghosts. Having seen at least three of the ghosts, our designer likes to believe that the fourth was a friendly, more passionate jewelry admirer than the rest, as it left random pieces of jewelry often purposefully placed on the steps leading to her basement workshop. Nothing else around except the random brooch, pin, or piece of jewelry that had never been seen before. This necklace contains one of the more beautiful pieces gifted by the ghost to the designer. I suspect the ghost must have worn this once or twice, but I can't be certain.
