To the lads who may be viewing this: Do focus on the lovely necklaces. Bare bosom aside - this is gorgeous. Moody and gorgeous.

The illustrations by Elyse Saunders for jewelry label Kelsey Quan are beauties, in and of themselves, but the real treats here are the necklaces.

I'm loving how design is taking a handicraft-chic turn these days, from those ever popular Proenza friendship bracelets, to raw edges on Chanel purses.

In this instance, the semi-precious stones, the wrapped cording, and the composition of each piece makes for a bit of wearable art.

See the full range here.
