inspired by... marquis & camus


you might remember this post from a couple months ago about the amazing jewelry of marquis & camus.  i haven't been able to stop thinking about the gorgeous pieces, but they aren't exactly in my price range (even though many of the pieces are marked down 30% - 50%)... so i decided to DIY it!  

as many of you probably already know, i used to create and sell jewelry made from vintage components... so i had tons of little bits of chain in different sizes and colors to work with.  i started with a length of heavy silver chain, then knotted and twisted a bunch of different chains into it for a freeform, layered look.  


i love the way it turned out, and i think it will complement both the romantic/victorian and punk/grunge looks i've been into lately.  what do you think?  i'd love to hear your opinions in the comments section!

xoxo,
lesley
