Scoring with classic chain jewellery

There’s always something about classic, simple jewellery. They move effortlessly from day to night and match with a variety of outfits — these are pieces I always recommend my clients to start with if they are getting used to the idea of accessorizing on a daily basis for work or play. But somehow, they are really hard to find!

Chanced across a treasure trove of classic chain bracelets and necklaces in Melbourne over the festive break and I couldn’t help but buy everything! Even if my clients don’t want to buy them, I’m certainly keeping them for myself :D

These chains are really fine so they drape very nicely when worn. They work with most pieces and styles and are simply lovely.

The only possible downside is that they are a bit troublesome to bring on trips – they tend to kink easily when clumped together. So pack them well or prepare to spend some time working out the kinks before wearing!

Will be sourcing for the wholesalers for more pieces at lower prices if there’s interest. Do contact me at sayhi@micheleng.sg if you’d like some of these great pieces :)
