Shopping with Kate: Claudia Bradby Kate Necklace

It was through the generosity of a fellow replikater that I was able to buy this necklace. She sold it to me and made sure to reserve it just for me.

This is the necklace Kate designed for Claudia Bradby when she was working for Jigsaw.

 

The necklace consists of a 16 inch sterling silver chain with movable pendants: a nugget of rose quartz, a sterling silver bean, and a pink freshwater pearl.

 

The necklace is light, delicate and surprisingly versatile for such pink pieces. I believed at first that it would look too feminine in tone contrasted with richer hues. It is a cool toned piece but it works against warmer colors, and it’s very wearable as a daily accessory.

Another design aspect I think was made with great foresight and care is the fact that this piece is devoid of prosaic feminine symbols such as butterflies, flowers or hearts. It’s a great way to be inclusive of the diversity among young girls and their personal taste in accessories. I can see a lot of young girls gravitating to this piece because it’s neutral and simple.

Unfortunately Claudia Bradby no longer stocks this, but keep an eye on replikate circles and eBay for a chance to buy it.
