Ever noticed the simplicity and beauty in a single chain necklace? Ones that sit oh-so-casually around your neck, placed under a buttoned-up collar or skim just over the top of a singlet but have such a profound effect? Well that's the effect I get when I see hipsters (both boys and girls) walking the streets with their Recreational Boutique jewellery. Before working at 100 Squared I thought these hipsters were so DIY savvy that they made them themselves; attaching quirky little ornaments to a chain - you know it's just something that those hipsters would do. But don't fret if you aren't (like me ) DIY talented because it is the ever-so-talented Emma Swann we need to thank for designing and creating these little treasures.
Wishbones, bullets, spray-can heads, swords, boxing gloves, headphones just a few of her amazing creations. Did I mention she does rings too? Now, those are my favourite! You can pile them on and take the 'more is more' approach and never go wrong with too many Recreational rings. They all seem to fit together like a collage - the more you add, the better it looks! Pile, pile, pile them on.

And finally, a two of my favourites: triangle ring + one-off baby head/key necklace. I'll show you how it actually sits in the next post! Stay tuned. Of course, you too can check out the Recreational Boutique range on their website here or visit them down at 100 Squared, bottom level of Westfield Sydney.
