Kelsey Quan: Mix Master, Necklace Maker

Chaos Theory Around Your Neck

kelsey quan necklaces!

A freestyle poem dedicated to Kelsey Quan — bespectacled cat lover, bicoastal aesthete, and the stylist behind a new line of necklaces we think Nicki Minaj would rock as a participant on a Hunter S. Thompson-hosted game show.

Kid, the. The SoCal expat has a serious sense of humor.
Every piece is stitched and pieced together by hand in her Greenpoint studio.
Learned early, mostly self-taught.
Story stated, let’s move on to the necklaces. A style per letter, you see.
Electric orange plastic cord, dalmatian ceramic rings, yellow glass beads — call it Candy Corn. 
Yearn for carved stone Saturns in orbit and glass beads. Solar systematic rings, you space traveler.

Quartz, citrine rocks huddled and hung; ombre crocheted chain; neon green pop at the nape.
Unicorn: bilevel rocks, hand-painted snakeskin, blue embossed leather, and marigold hiking rope.
Adventures at camp: mesh tunnel, Southwest tiers of agate, black and white rope. Just bead it.
Nice and easy, stones stay together (right, Mick?). Chain interwoven with magenta yarn, pink shine.

Available by email order (info@kelseyquan.com), $335-$475. To see styles, go to kelseyquan.com. Trunk show, today, 1-7 p.m., at Elizabeth Charles, 639½ Hudson Street, between Gansevoort and Horatio Streets (212-243-3201). R.S.V.P. to ny@elizabeth-charles.com.
