I often feel life is a puzzle. The pieces are scattered everywhere for us to find and put together again in our own unique way. Easier said than done, isn’t it? I’m still trying to make sense of mine.
The search for these missing pieces has taken me to London. It’s a very big place, and can sometimes feel scary and isolating.
But it’s also full of wonderful opportunities and amazing people working hard to make their dreams come true. There’s a lot of gold scattered through the black.
Just like in the Gold Puzzle Necklace by A. Monaie Designs I’m wearing above. This necklace represents exactly where I am in my life at the moment. Every time I wear it, it reminds me of this amazing journey called life, and that I can figure it all out.
Just like our own lives are all different and unique, so are A. Monaie Designs. Each piece is handmade, so each item can vary slightly from what is pictured on their website (or here). I like that.
The Gold Puzzle Necklace makes quite a statement on its own, so it’s perfect to jazz up a simple, but classic, outfit. I’ve worn it with a basic white shirt and black trousers for job interviews, and with lower-cut, monochromatic dresses to go out with friends.
Either way, it looks great. Especially when you pair it with green. It’s a beautiful combination. Because the necklace sits quite close around the neck, a bit like a choker, it works best with low-cut tops. But I’m sure I’ll find a way to wear with winter turtlenecks too. 🙂
It’s also incredibly easy to put on. I don’t know about you, but I always struggle to fasten the clasps of necklaces on my own. The Gold Puzzle Necklace has a screw on clasp. You unscrew it to open it, and re-screw it to close it back up. Easy peasy.
And did I mention it costs only £12.00? All A. Monaie Designs creations are very affordable, but bold and fun. If you like colourful statement pieces, especially those inspired by Ankara prints and geometric shapes, you must check out this line.
All items are made to order, so you must allow three days for production, but after that delivery is pretty quick. And the piece is well worth the wait!
THE BOTTOM LINE
Pros: Beautiful hand-made statement piece, Perfect to spice up simple (and even boring) outfits, Easy to put on, Affordable.
Cons: I honestly can’t think of anything, unless you are so impatient you can’t wait three days for production.
Summary: A. Monaie Designs Gold Puzzle Necklace is a beautiful, unique and handmade statement piece that adds a regal touch to even the simplest of outfits.
Price & Avaibility: £12.00 at Amonaiedesigns.com
