Long pendant necklaces are awesome because they kill two birds with with one (large, hanging) stone: 1) They’re the only piece of jewelry you need to take any outfit from boring to fab, and 2) they draw attention to your magnificent cleavage. Here are 11 I’m dying to dangle between the girls.
When I saw these awesome faux druzy necklaces that are actually made with little bits of colored glass, my first thought was, “Awesome!” My second thought was that I need to invite Jessica Wakeman, Noted Druzy Jewelry Enthusiast, over to my house to drink wine and listen to Ke$ha and have a DIY necklace-making party.

I recently bought myself a Rosette Nebula necklace from an Etsy artist, because my middle name is rose and I love space photography.
