Everyone loves a double duty item. The more ways you can wear a piece, the more it's worth your buck. But when it comes to accessories, it's quite rare to find an item that can function more that what it's originally intended for. Luckily, local jewelry designer Janina Dizon-Hoschka showed us an ingenious way to wear heirloom pearls!
"I’ve always loved the idea of finding new creative ways of using jewelry," Janina tells Preview. "For this, I thought it would be nice to have a pearl necklace as a connector to the two brooches but really you can use a chain or any rosary type." The end result is a subtle armor-like accent to your tweed jacket or suit!
And when asked how to take care of pearls, the jewelry expert's advice is to "wipe your pearls after each and every use as pearls lose their luster over time."
