Iacoli & McAllister's Necklace No. 12, $88 at Of a Kind

I'm always looking for jewelry that costs under $100 and isn't from a chain store, so when small-batch site Of a Kind launched Iacoli & McAllister's brass-and-ultra-suede necklace for $88, I jumped on it. It's a statement piece without being a Statement Piece: two long loops of peach-colored cords strung with geometric beads, some in springy colors like mint and biege. Iacoli & McAllister are Seattle-based furniture makers (Of a Kind informs us that they bonded over "their joint love of welding") and there's something nicely industrial about the materials they used, but I also love that it's basically a sophisticated version of a little kid's macaroni necklace.
