Today I discovered Shadowplay, a jewelry company working with crocheted yarn and crystals creating net-like necklaces that drape across and down you, an intriguing hybrid of scarf and necklace. There is a beautiful fantasy-like quality to them; I can't help but envision mermaids or fairies, or birds nests, like these objects have been collected and carefully knit together. Romantic, really. And still avant-garde and edgy, despite their softness, a by-product of the quirky amalgamation of soft and hard, mauve and acid green. Images courtesy the Shadowplay website.
