Sautoirs offer such a wide range of possibilities for expressing yourself. I wanted to photograph them in a number of different ways to demonstrate the many modern ways of wearing these vintage-style necklaces. It was great to do something that moves away from my normal work and to have some fun with lighting.
One of the necklaces here really reminds me of the Heart of the Ocean that Rose wears in Titanic, so I have chosen to pair it with blue. I think it goes great with jeans and a knitted sweater for a casual look, with just a hint of sparkling blue on your shoes or accessories.
One of the others looks just like a drop of water and to me really evokes nature, so I thought it would look great in green lighting. For everyday wear, nothing is better than a pair of printed jeans, some fun ballerina pumps, and a colored jacket to add a vibrant touch to your outfit!
The last necklace, which is the most vintage of them all, is for me the ideal feminine piece. I think it looks great with soft lighting, bathed in cozy pink light. It goes perfectly with a simple shirt and a retro print. Opt for a pair of high-heeled pumps to emphasize your delicate side.
