Rachel Wightman's Hand-Made Necklaces Are Like Wearable Art

Sydney-based stylist Rachel Wightman is the mastermind behind 'not Tuesday,' a range of hand-made necklaces that have the unfinished charm of a grade-school project. Although, I must say, these pieces look way more sophisticated than the macaroni jewelry that I gave my mom every birthday, Christmas and Mother's day (for way longer than was actually acceptable).

Wightman gravitates towards imperfect shapes, vibrant hues and matte textures. She strings together each funky piece, (which on its own might look clunky, but together looks playful), to create what she refers to as "wearable art."

Wightman's genius comes from embracing imperfection. The jewelry has a raw appeal that stands out amongst overly polished gems and baubles.
