When the seasons are changing, do you get the urge to make accessories? I find they can be an easy way to update a wardrobe without spending a lot of money. During the spring and summer, I’ve noticed I use brighter colors and more natural materials. And spring cleaning has me reevaluating pieces I’ve had for a long time.
Here’s an easy project for when the jewelry bug hits. All it takes is two jumbo beads, a length of chain, and earring hooks. I’ve had the large red beads since I started college, but I could never find the right project for them. Finally, I realized they were bright enough to stand on their own and I love how well the color shows up in my dark hair!
Aren’t they lovely? They’re perfect for adding some fun to a casual outfit; I’ve worn them with a navy dress or a crisp white blouse and wide leg jeans. Sometimes, you just have to let an idea grow in the back of your mind. It may take a few days (or years!), but it’s worth the wait!
