If you're shy and a bit awkward at holiday parties, then jewelry can do a lot to alleviate any nail-biting bashfulness. First off, there's something for nervous hands to fuss with, and secondly, if your jewels are anything like Alienina's line of tactile necklaces, you're basically wearing the best conversation starter there is around your neck. The weighty, textured pieces are all made using everyday bits and bobs, including buttons, bands and metal cable, and there's even an intricately knotted choker made out of what looks like a telephone cord.
