Alice Made This gold and silver Jac necklace

Alice Made This gold and silver Jac necklace, £430
I love the idea of wearing rings on a chain, or any kind of jewel that adorns a part of the body other than the one it’s designed to. I also love pieces with a mix of metal colours, which makes this necklace pretty perfect. alicemadethis.com
