Gold Totem Necklace

Not available for purchase.

283 votes 25 comments

This mixed-media necklace has presence and sophistication. Bold stacks of richly colored thread bind cascading strands of gold chain, making it whimsical yet steadfast.

Drape it over a t-shirt, add it to an erratic mix of pendants, or rock it after-hours on a rooftop. The inspiration behind this fusion comes from nature's vibrant colors and from finding power in unexpected places.

You could find this at Urban O for 25 bucks or less on clearance in the same metal. too much $$!

I think I could make this...not interesting enough. Definitely not "whimsical"

Very pretty and delicate for those of us who don't like large chunky jewelry!

I'm 13, and I'm pretty sure I could make this at home... It is nice, though.

I actually bought this necklace and wear it all the time. It goes with everything and is just the right length. I love it.

I like the piece a lot. It would add a bit of sophistication to an outfit and who doesn't like that?

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for the kind support.I designed this necklace as a versatile accent to compliment many different looks. I can't tell you how many compliments I get from complete strangers (critical New Yorkers!) every time I wear this. I think this necklace has just the right amount of presence and personality. You won't find a nice gold plating like this in many trendy stores, this piece really stands out. Thanks again for the votes, keep those thumbs up!-Sofia Ramsay

I think it's the perfect combination and would be beautiful on it's own or with several other textures!

This type of necklace is available everywhere...yet the wrap is a little different. the chains the gold plating would wear off...I could see paying 25/30 for this piece.
