Magnetic Fashion Jewelry
Q: Looking for metal, high quality collar that can be worn under
> clothes.... more jewelry look. Anyone have sources?
A:You may find my source page helpful with your search. It is at: http://www.cadvision.com/bacchae/lips.htm There are several links there but you can maybe start with Pandora and Pendragon I'm also interested in a permanant item, but my husband hesitates because of my 'normal' kind of job. I know he loves the concept so something that's very jewelry looking would serve us both! I checked out all the links I could find on-line and didn't find anything I liked. I love the look of many of the chains, but I have long hair, and I have to be careful what I wear around my neck or my hair tangles around it. I finally found what I was looking for at a store called Ylang-Ylang. It's totally mainstream, in many malls, but it carries a large assortment of stainless-steel or similar necklaces in various chain types and with various closures. I found several I liked, which had decorative magnetic closures that due to their weight would hang around to the front, and reminded me somewhat of the feel of having a lock hanging there. However, the necklace I finally chose is a single strand, large chain in the back, with a standard hook-style closure, which makes it adjustable (from necklace to choker length); the front is multiple strands of smaller chain that actually look like CHAIN chains (if that makes any sense). I love it. It's heavy enough to feel like a collar, it's both casual and dressy enough to wear with anything from work to fetish clothes, and the chain-look is a real turn-on for me (since I love bondage). They're also quite reasonably priced. I happened upon a sale and got mine for about $20; most were up to $50 at regular price (much cheaper than some of the stuff I've found online). They have a web site, but it's horrible. They don't do on-line sales and the web site just has some very slow-loading pics of samples of merchandise. But check your local phone book, if they have one around you check it out. If not, look for similar funky-fashion jewelry shops, I've since seen a couple others that carried similar designs. Seems to cater to a certain class of somewhat-monied, fashion-conscious women who still want to be a little funky and unusual in their jewelry selections. That'll probably make a lot more sense to the women than to the men reading this
