I stumbled upon Above/Below on Instagram and instantly fell in love with a gorgeous howlite necklace. Howlite looks very much like white marble, which is probably why I was instantly drawn to it. After further research, I discovered that howlite is also a stone to use when needing to reduce anxiety, tensions and stress, and that it can also be used to facilitate awareness, encourage emotional expression and assist in the elimination of pain, stress and/or rage. I felt very much like this particular stone necklace was meant for me to have!
So, I reached out to Above/Below via Instagram DM (yup, I’m that girl) and asked if I could get my hands on that particular beauty, as it wasn’t listed on the website – they got back to me swiftly and made my custom piece and the rest is history!
The piece took a little over a week to arrive, and I was super excited when I unwrapped a package and saw the ‘Above/Below’ card attached.
I needed to figure out the perfect outfit to wear with this piece ASAP, as I wanted to show it off! It’s totally a statement piece, so I figured I’d wear it with muted makeup and a neutral-coloured outfit to really let the necklace have the opportunity to shine and be the focal point of my #OOTD.
