This groovy Beaded Cluster Necklace reminds us of some kind of Martha Stewart holiday decoration–in the best way possible. But this piece of artwork is way cooler and more functional since we actually get to wear it on our necks. Did we mention how affordable it is? Now that’s a good thing.
Last week, we asked you to share your style advice in exchange for an Anna Beck Designs Kecil necklace. Everyone can benefit from a little help in the fashion department, and you guys wrote up some awesome tips that’ll help us get dressed in the morning, but bellarose‘s comment was our favorite:

Your apartment could catch on fire and the only clothes you would be left with would be the ones you are wearing — hope you’re looking cute and comfy!
Thanks for commenting, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest! Keep reading »

Warm weather is imminent, we swear, and with it comes one of our favorite pastimes: backyard barbecues.

Instead, when you put on your party clothes, accessorize your outfit with this steel pendant necklace that does double-duty as a bottle opener. Not only will it help you keep the masses happy, but it’s cute to boot. [$62, CXXVI] Keep reading »
