Location: Arcadia University, Glenside, PA, USA; Material: Bronze & Beads
So, I did not actually get this from a 5-year-old’s jewelry box, but it looks like it could have come from a 5-year old! Most adults just do not wear that many colors strung together with little stars thrown in. Well, this “adult” (quotes because I am 23, but am I really an adult?) does. This necklace is definitely not my normal pendant style and-quite frankly-is not my taste at all, but for some reason I love it. I think I love it because it’s different. I will often combine it with pendant necklaces (like the necklace I discussed a few entries ago) because I really enjoy the juxtaposition of an intricate string of beads with a singular, simple pendant. I did not get this place anywhere special on my travels, rather, I purchased it at one of the places I love most: Arcadia University, where I did my undergraduate studies. When I was a freshman, there was a couple that had a business (who name slips my mind currently) that came to college campuses and selling budget jewelry to students. What a great idea, right?! As a freshman without a job, no money, and no car, I was grateful! Anyway, this was one of the pieces I purchased, it was only $2!
