7 Gorgeous Necklaces by Susie Ghahremani ...

By Jennifer

I’ve been on something of a buying binge lately, with a minor obsession for pretty necklaces by indie designers. It’s a harmless obsession, one that’s landed me many a compliment and made my friends happy with several necklace swaps and hand-me-downs. I especially adore the ones I’ve found by artist Susie Ghahremani, either by herself or partnered with another of my faves, Chocolate & Steel. They’re all darling, featuring a menagerie of critters that are too cute to pass up! Here are 7 gorgeous necklaces by Susie Ghahremani.

1 Susie Ghahremani Silver Birdhouse Necklace

Susie Ghahremani Silver Birdhouse NecklacePrice: $47.50 at
We all know it’s true: home is where the heart is, whether that home is a flat, a studio, or a birdhouse. This little birdhouse is stamped, along with a heart, on a long pendant of reclaimed silver by Chocolate & steel, based on a drawing by Ghahremani. It measures just over an inch long, and a half-inch wide, and hangs from an 18” silver chain. How sweet! And what a lovely house-warming gift this would be…

2 Susie Ghahremani Octopus Necklace

Susie Ghahremani Octopus NecklacePrice: $20.00 at
This is my favorite of Ghahremani’s designs, a smiling little octopus with long lashes — she’s a girl, then! — and detailed tentacles so she can show off her suction cups. She’s just over an inch long, including her tiny tentacles, and hangs from an 18-inch silver-tine ball chain.

3 Susie Ghahremani Chickadee Necklace

This charming little chickadee comes bearing a gift — a sprig of Queen Anne’s Lace, perfect for adding to the bouquet of fresh flowers on your windowsill. He’s made of cast metal and measures just under and inch long, suspended from an 18-inch ball chain.

4 Susie Ghahremani Silver Hedgehog Necklace

How sweet! I love this pokey little hedgehog, stamped onto reclaimed silver from a drawing by Ghahremani. She’s marked this as a limited edition design, meaning only 100 of these sweet little hedgehogs are available, so if you love him as much as I do, get one soon!

5 Susie Ghahremani Silver Quail Necklace

These tiny quails have a surprise for you! Each one, designed by Ghahremani and cast by Chocolate & Steel, holds a tiny cubic zirconia or your birthstone, and are custom-made just for you! Simply choose the birthstone you want, then in 2 to 3 weeks, it will arrive… what a lovely gift idea, too!

6 Susie Ghahremani Typewriter Necklace

Susie Ghahremani Typewriter NecklacePrice: $20.00 at
I’m old enough that I remember being a writer before computers and word processors, when the work you did made noise, a happy tap-tap-tap that spelled your progress. Celebrate those days with this retro-inspired pendant, which hangs from an 18-inch silver-tone ball chain. I’d layer this with other silver necklaces…

7 Susie Ghahremani Silver Bunny Necklace

Based on one of Ghahremani’s illustrations, and made of reclaimed silver by fellow indie artist Chocolate& Steel, there are only 100 of these bouncing bunnies available. He smiles sweetly as he hops along on his bunny business, measuring almost an inch across, dangling from an 18-inch silver chain.

These are just a few of the darling designs I’ve fallen in love with the past few months, and I’m so glad I got to share them with you! Which of these Susie Ghahremani (and Chocolate & Steel) necklaces do you like best, and what would you wear it with?
