Astrantia Necklace

Gwen Davis Gardenia Necklace Designer Gwendolyn Davis was inspired by nature and deco-era Art Nouveau to create her gorgeous Astrantia necklace, constructed out of mother of pearl petals from pre-war Japan.  "As with everything  I do creatively, my best teacher was nature. She teaches you the value of economy, proportion and exuberance all at once. The flower name ”Astrantia” comes from the Greek for Star, but I was thinking of a Gardenia when I made it."

Gwendolyn recommends pairing the delicate necklace with a Grecian-inspired top or dress with a plunging neckline and an empire waist.  She would also pair the necklace with her bamboo bangles set with Swarovski crystals and some simple dangly vintage chain earrings.

Fun fact about Gwendolyn?  She has a phobia for people in big, goofy costumes, likely stemming from a previous job as a costumer at Universal Studios.

$340 at Gwendolyn Davis.
