I have fallen for this gorgeous necklace by Aesa, the Ascensions Necklace. It's out of my reach, but I can't stop looking at it. I think it would dress up every outfit and be a great conversation piece.
In the meantime, this tutorial on making this adorable braided necklace is perfect! I can't wait to get back to the city to pick up all the right supplies.
