Fashioned by combining a pale pink fresh water pearl stud and a bedazzled H&M earring, a DIY project inspired by all the long pearl and bar earrings I'm dreaming of. Sophie Bille Brahe, I'm looking at you. Classy at the front party at the back, the ear candy equivalent of a mullet.

So apparently the first of March is officially spring here in the UK... That's good enough reason for me, it's time and acceptable to show some leg. I figured I should take the chance given that excuse and to make use of whatever hint of a fake tan that might still be lingering on them pins. Notably, I think it had all worn off at this point. It was a first time attempt at dying my skin, required for a work project, and this is what you do when you attempt a less than uber pale complexion, no?

Pearls are big at the moment. Quite literally at Chanel where the models came down the runway adorned with behemoth pearls around their necks, in a choker that bore an uncanny resemblance to headphones.
Spring/Summer 14's version of the white drops are clearly casting of it's socker mom/granny/corporate wife associations. The regenerated version of pearls is cool. Minimal but with a statement. We are talking big pearls set in gold (my personal preference) or silver, nothing too small and dainty and clusters formed of a variety of sizes are to be revered.
Begone the string of pearls. Now they are on rings, bracelets and earrings (but way more exciting than a set of small pearl studs). If opting for a set of pearls for the neck, I'm going to make sure they are on a choker. Scandi queens of cool minimal jewellery, Sophie Bille Brahe and Jane Koenig, have perfected the modern variation. If only I could have them all! But hey, there's always that Zara choker waiting to be brought home in the meantime.
