Trend Alert Tuesday: Chunky Gold Chains



Welcome back to another Trend Alert Tuesday. I hope everyone is having a great week. Today I want to share my thought on the Chunky Chain trend. I've seen more and more girls wearing this statement piece, and I love it. I know some of you might be thinking your going to look like Mr. T, but I promise you won't. If you don't feel comfortable wearing a necklace, then try wearing a chunky chain bracelet. It's still trendy and cute, without being such a statement piece. Chunky chains were popular years ago, so might be able to snag some vintage styles at your local thrift store. You might have to give them a good cleaning, but you'll save a ton and have a piece most won't have. If you don't want to do that then here's some other options.

HRH collection makes handmade pieces that are amazing. I've heard so many good review about her pieces that I had to mention her. Each piece cost around $50.00 and is hand crafted by Alex in LA. She's super sweet and has a YouTube channel where you can see how she styles her pieces.

    Etsy has so many sellers that make beautiful necklaces as well. I came across Worldof Tashii, this seller has a large variety of pieces. I loved all of her bracelets and she had some really cute head pieces. I also look at each sellers feedback before I buy. This shop had 17 posts and 100% satisfaction. Also look to see how many sales the shop has made. The necklaces at this shop were about 32.00 but shipping cost $12.00.

Even though I think all these options are great, I decided I wanted to see what I could find at my local craft store. I went to Joanne Fabric and saw they had chain handles in the aisle for purse making. They had a variety of thickness, but the length was pretty standard. They were on sale for 4.00 each. I was happy with the way it looked, so I brought it. I found this website  that sells different chains so you can make your own chunky chains. Your going to need some supplies if you want to make the double chain, you can always find a how-to on Google. I plan on doing a tutorial once I practice and get it perfect.

Mind you I took this picture at work to post for my OOTD post on The Nest, I look like a freak!


These pieces look great a collard shirt or a blazer. You can dress up any casual outfit and give it that extra sparkle.
