I love the look of layered necklaces, but I don't have the money or time to stock up on complementary ( not too matchy-matchy) strand upon strand. So it's great to have a relative who designs jewelry. My sister-in-law Tonia Kim of the Toki Collection is doing these cool multi-layer chains in various shades of gold. I only recently started wearing gold again (yes, I realize I'm a bit late to the game) so this is a nice, not overly glitzy way to ease in. I like the piece because it's more fashionable than a single chain, yet subtle enough to wear with just about anything -- day or night.
You don't have to be related to Tonia to get one. The Toki Collection is available at the Walker Art Center Shop, where a new shipment just arrived. Tonia says the spring collection emphasizes delicate details and 10k gold shaped into twig like forms, tentacles, and tiny seed like shapes juxtaposed against structural forms. Her multi-layer necklaces sell for $162 to $182
