Last season’s overabundance of heavy metals and giant gemstone collars had you feeling weighed down.
Lighten up with necklaces from Saako, a Barcelona-based line whose featherweight, soft-strand designs bridge the scarf-necklace divide (two for one, never bad).
Inspired by a Portuguese tradition of recycling fabric left over from garment manufacturing, two graphic designers and a tightly knit production team loop and bind remnants of rough-cut jersey in stripes, solids, and gorgeous prints.
One-of-a-kind standouts include the bead-like vermilion and baby blue knots and multicolor challah braids. Buy a few of the clasp-free, washable creations to mix, match, and layer at will.
Available online at saakodesign.com, $50-$100.
