Who’s excited for summer? I cannot wait for warm weather! I don’t know about you, but I spent the majority of the freezing cold winter cooped up making brand new jewelry…and I’m so excited to be able to show it off once the weather gets nicer!
From necklaces to rings, I powered through my bead stash and made some awesome accessories that are super sunny and bright…and since I’m so excited to accessorize with color again, I just had to share a few of my favorite summer-themed jewelry DIY’s with you! And since I’m feeling extra generous, I have an awesome giveaway in store for you as well…
But first, let’s get down to business. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite summery, beachy, nautical designs that are just perfect for wearing in the summertime. One of my favorites is the Nautical Knot Necklace, which I love pairing with my new summer sundress. I also loved making the Bright and Sunny Button Earrings, which I can easily wear year round for fun color accessorizing!
