Brighten Up Your Summer with Colorful Jewelry

Brights, brights and more brights! We’re in the last month of summer – last chance to bust out those hot pink capris and colorful sundresses for some frolic in the sun. And what complements bright clothes? Bright jewelry! We’ve selected a few projects from our designers that you can create to accessorize for hot summer days and even hotter summer nights!

  • Katie Hacker designed the Peony Necklace for a Pretty Palettes Challenge earlier in the summer. Katie used frosted cat eyes and glass rounds in pinks and oranges to create this delectable necklace.
  • Molly Schaller’s Peony Punch Cuff was another design created for the same Pretty Palettes Challenge. Molly added in some metallic beads and quartzite rounds along with pink bamboo coral to punch up the sparkle in her cleverly constructed bracelet.
  • Denise Yezback Moore created a trio of bright bib necklaces that will complement a variety of summer frocks. Conjure visions of cool seaside breezes with Denise’s Indigo Necklace, featuring cool blue Czech glass beads. Or evoke childhood memories of summer carnival treats with her Tutti Frutti Necklace made from various stone, wood and glass beads. Or transport to the painted desert with her Cyan Necklace comprised of many shapes and sizes of beautiful turquoise beads.
