People often ask me how Necklettes was started. Through my love for fashion, I've always enjoyed the process of putting looks together and accessorizing with jewelry. Turns out, combining those two things together would be the inspiration for starting my business.
The idea for Necklettes came to me unexpectedly - and out of disappointment after dropping off my favorite sweater, that had stones sewn on the collar to the dry cleaners.... when I picked it up days later, I was devasted to see that stones had fallen off.
Disappointed that one of my favorite sweaters was ruined, I started thinking about a way to embellish my clothing with jewelry. I went into my closet and pulled out a sleeveless cashmere sweater and paired it with a necklace. While it was beautiful, I wasn't a fan of how heavy the necklace was... Loved the jewels, but could do without the chain. I knew that if I glued just the embellished part of the necklace to my sweater I would never be able to wear it on anything else again.
After several months of experimenting, I came up with the idea of using a lightweight magnet on each side of the jewelry embellishment to connect it to clothing. Wanting to build my wardrobe with unique statement pieces I could mix and match with anything in my closet, I started designing other pieces.
As I created new styles, I would wear them and women would stop me and ask where I had purchased these magnetic embellishments which I called a Necklettes. There were even times that I would sell them right off my shirt!
Years later, and more designs, Necklettes' patented design has evolved in so many ways. What started as an idea to accessorize my outfits with all the glitz and glamour of jewelry, but without having to wear a necklace, has evolved into a stylish adventure.
I'm so proud of how far we've come, and I'm excited for you to be able to take your look to another level with my magnetic jewelry embellishments that can be worn with t-shirts, sweaters, blouses, and dresses – and won’t damage your clothing.
Our business has grown exponentially over the past couple of years. While Necklettes is sold through retailers, our revamped e-commerce site has launched!
On Necklettes.com, you'll find our entire collection of fashionable magnetic embellishments to add to your wardrobe. Whatever your style is, there are Necklettes that matches it.
Stay tuned for more styles and sparkle in the future!
Thank you for your support!
