Judi Dench’s favourite necklace?


Do you have a favourite piece of jewelry, a favourite necklace perhaps, that you wear often? I was watching a video with Judi Dench and Benedict Cumberbatch performing a bit of Shakespeare, and my eye was drawn to her necklace. I’ve always liked Judi’s style – she’s classy and understated. Anyway, back to the necklace… I googled to see what other jewelry she wears, and was struck by how many images I found of her wearing the same necklace, or combination of necklaces – she seems to have a few short chains that she likes to layer. The one I am talking about is the shorter one in this photo – it appears to be a double chain with a small focal open silver ring, with many very small silver discs dangling from the chain.

So perhaps I have discovered that Judi Dench has a favourite necklace.

Go ahead and google “Judi Dench” images and you’ll see what I mean.

I have a favourite necklace that I wear with almost everything – providing the neckline of my top is suitable for it. It’s a sterling silver cable chain, with a darkened patina for an aged appearance. At the centre, there is a selection of pearls, crystals and stones in blue and grey, and a small textured dimensional heart charm. The necklace is about 18″ long, and works well with an open collared shirt, or a scoop neck or v-neck t-shirt. I find myself wearing it with white, black, grey, navy or red. It’s something I made, of course, and it’s nearly one of a kind – I did make another very similar to this, at the request of a customer who lives in another city – I’m pretty sure we’re not going to bump into each other wearing the same necklace.
