Boho Chic

Kelsey loves to make her own jewelry.  It is both easier on her student budget, but also allows her the freedom and flexibility to make pieces that match her style.  Her latest favorite trend this summer has been boho chic.

Her favorites colors seem to be shades of brown and blue, and she will often layer several different pieces together until she gets the look that she wants.

In addition, Kelsey often combines textures, such as faux leather, metal, glass and stone.  The look is super cute on her and the jewelry was made for just a fraction of what it would cost in a store.

Beaded Dangle Bracelet

I’ve been into bracelets lately.  (I’ll have to post about something else next time–sorry about this.)  I guess I enjoy making them because they are often a quick project, and they are such an easy way to dress up an outfit.

This is actually a fuller version of a bracelet that I made for my teenage daughter (hers had less dangles).  It began as a length of chain to which I attached a bunch of beaded dangles using wire wraps.  It was really easy to attach a toggle clasp to the chain.  I used various shades of an aqua blue as a color scheme, but once again, all the beads came from our leftover beads bin.  No need to buy anything fancy, just another project that uses whatever you happen to have on hand!
