25 Days of Holiday Gifts: Beaded Necklace

Day 14: An easy way to dress up your seasonal finery

If there’s ever an occasion for more glitz and glam, it’s the holidays—which is why we were drawn to the Harlow Shimmer necklace by 31 Bits. Its three strands of sparkling sapphire-blue beads (made from recycled paper, but they’re sturdy, not flimsy) mixed with gold glass beads makes for a subtle yet festive look. Each 31 Bits piece is handmade by women in Uganda, and Fishers boutique Lily & Sparrow is the only retailer in the Indianapolis area that carries the line. $58.
