Graphic Designer and Artist Nikki Butler of Nikki Butler Design

We can’t think of anyone who pulls off a put-together look with as much ease as Nikki Butler. Nikki created the Heirloom Finds logo, and she designs those banners you see on our website. She’s warm and generous and has a sly sense of humor; that she’s effortlessly glamorous is just the icing on the cake.

A self-described “graphic designer who loves to sew,” Nikki runs Nikki Butler Design, where she makes clutch handbags and scarves using luxurious fabrics in her own custom prints. We thought it would be fun to turn Nikki’s intuitive style sense loose, so we asked her to match her favorite Heirloom Finds jewelry with selections from her own wardrobe. As she modeled her looks for us, we chatted about fashion inspiration.

Heirloom Finds It's Such a Tassel Necklace Earrings

Wearing Caught in Cross Hairs Bracelet and It’s Such a Tassel Necklace and Earrings

What kind of jewelry do you find yourself drawn to? Why?
I’m a pearl girl for certain because of their classic, timeless elegance. I also love sparkly! And colorful statement pieces always capture my attention—if you’re going to wear jewelry, let it be seen! Chunky bangle bracelets, cocktail rings and bib necklaces are excellent conversation starters. Jewelry in general makes me feel more feminine.

How would you describe your personal style?
I actually have narrowed it to three words: Classic, Feminine & Colorful. It’s become my mantra when shopping!

Do you have a favorite style icon?
I can’t narrow it to just one. I’d love to spend a day in Kate Middleton’s closet and I’m forever drawn to Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ timeless style.

You look great every time I see you, and it’s almost like that informs your calm, collected demeanor. Do you feel less like yourself when you have to rush out the door in any old thing you threw on?
Well, thank you! I feel most confident and myself when my hair is curled, I’m in full make-up regalia and wearing something feminine. Sometimes I wear sparkly earrings to the gym just to feel more like me.

Sometimes you go for an edgy look; sometimes, a traditional one. Do you think there are different aspects of yourself that become more apparent depending on your outfit for the day?
This is the reason that I have never been one to lay out my outfits the night before. Sometimes I even feel like I have a split-fashion personality! My closet is very diverse. One day it’s a floral skirt and heels, the next day it’s ripped jeans and flip flops. Watch out when I’m wearing my black leather pants!

Lariats & Tassels, from Ancient Macedonia to Today’s Fashion Icons

Heirloom Finds model and tassel necklace

One of today’s hottest accessory trends owes its origins to the domestication of horses. In jewelry terms, a lariat is a long, open-ended necklace that has no clasp. But historically, a lariat is a lasso used to catch or lead livestock. Like ropes themselves, decorative lariats have been around for millennia. One of the most iconic examples of a lariat is a golden snake dating back to the Macedonian and Ptolemaic period (332–30 B.C.), which is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection.

Heirloom Finds Lariat Necklace

Some lariats are thick and coiled, while other are loose and flowing. The latter, with their light, breezy attitude and fluid movement, are ideal for summer. And lariats that incorporate a pendant with delicate beaded or chain fringe echo the tassels we’ve been seeing all over the place this year, from couture to street wear (and even home décor.) The lariats and tassels in our newest collection run the gamut, offering something for everyone.

One of the most recognizable tassels-wearers might be Mad Men’s Joan Holloway, played by Christina Hendricks. In the show’s first few seasons, Joan never appears at the offices of Sterling Cooper without her gold pen pendant. Much later in the series, as Joan engineers her way out of her secretary role, we see Joan at a party decked out in a stunning red satin dress, flaunting layers of topaz-hued rhinestones and gold-tone rope chains with a tasseled pendant—the jewelry of a powerful woman who wants to call the shots. She wears a more understated but equally striking tasseled pendant to work in Season 6.

Joan’s look is very structured and composed, just as Joan’s demeanor is on the show. But long, slender, and funky lariats speak to the casual boho look. Chain lariats with faceted beads evoke more of a Jazz Age scene, as do strands with tassels and crystals. Flappers loved luxe, long lariats with gemstones or rhinestones and frosty white pearls.

Heirloom Finds Tassel Necklace

Contemporary boho style, with its tassels and airy layering, owes a debt to the young, willowy rockers and groupies who frolicked with musicians and celebrities on the Sunset Strip during the late 60s and early 70s. Plundering thrift shops and vintage stores, they resurrected feminine floral dresses from the 30s and 40s and mixed them with lace, velvet, baubles, and layers upon layers of fringe. (For a fun and dishy read, nab Pamela Des Barres’s I’m With The Band: Confessions of a Groupie. It’s surprisingly uplifting, and will fill you in on this time of unbridled L.A. hippy glam.) While more eclectic than flappers of the 20s, the two styles share an affinity with their liberated, live-in-the-moment approach to fashion and passion.

So whether they’re precious metal that’s thousands of years old or brand-spankin’-new fringed leather accented with rustically hewn stones, lariats and tassels personalize any outfit. Some are crisp and elegant; others are relaxed and casual, but there’s at least one that’s just right for you.
