Let's get pendant-ic


A little pedantry about pendantry...And many gratuitous shots of HRH, Queen of Chic, Jackie O.

Having recently purchased a beautiful large gold ornate filigree cross pendant which my husband detests but which I think is totally fab (adjective overload: repeat: adjective overload), I am currently All About Pendants.

Isn't the late 60s/early 70s feel of them just great? As a friend and I discussed just the other day, these large pendants remind one of one's mother when one was a child. You know: turtleneck, large scarf over hair, large pendant, octagonal-framed glasses. Yes, the very look that, as teenagers, shamed some of us to blushy blobs of embarassment on our mothers' behalves, is now the picture of chicness. And so it should be; after all, our mothers' inspirations were women like the iconic Jackie O, and almost nobody out-chics Queen Jackie. (I said almost, Audrey.)


(Jackie, you are truly fabulous.)










(Girl, where did you get those jeans? Hawt.)






(Nicole Ritchie, Schmicole Smitchie)




Now on to the goods:


Owls were big in the 60s and 70s. Who knows why? But these pendants, all available (or perhaps, alas, already sold) from the fine purveyors under "Regularly Lose Income To...", show why the owl craze took off--they're cute, funny, and surprisingly versatile.

Isn't this one great? The chain is fabulous--never settle for a crappy chain.







I may actually have owned one just like this once. Did you?












Soon coming up for sale at Posh Girl. Keep your eyes peeled. WHO will be first to buy it? WHO? WHO? Whoooooo?









A lovely set of hooters...on eBay.







Other big pendants we love:





Awwww...a wittle butterfwy. Click image for a close-up--the details are just lovely.








I'm pretty sure this is My Favourite Pendant Of All Time. (And before you ask...no, it's not on 'sail'...). You buy something like this, you know nobody else has anything like it.

I love the sailing ship pendant. Love it. Love.










A very sweet rose.










Exotic coinage for the hippie-chic chick.












Highly turtleneck-worthy.








Ride on, sweet thing, in eternal elegance.

oh miss sholic,
you rawk! my fave: the coinage one. I'm now inspired to fashion a pendant of my own, but with.. wait for it! a riding-boot-inspired silver plated bucklet that I will suspend from an appropriately adorned neck- lace. to be continued! delightedly yours,
ni de bancouba

The owl, alas, has flown the coop.

But, ni-de-M: the coinage is still up for grabs!

Also, n-d-M, make sure ya post a pic of that riding-boot pendant when you're finished!
