Everyday Turquoise

I saw these the other day on Pinterest and could not love them more.  I think they’d be a great alternative to the diamond stud as an everyday kind of earring.  (at least in my turquoise obsessed world)  Of course when I went to the link they were sold out.  I went on the hunt for some similar and these are some that I found.

Bracelet Bonanza!

Since my little mister can yank a necklace right off my neck or pull my long dangly earrings out of my ears in nanoseconds, I am beginning to think bracelets need to be my IT fashion accessory these days. Here are some super duper cuties that I have my eyes on now.

Honestly WTF

Have you heard of this site? Honestly WTF is a site I stumbled upon recently and I’m LOVING their DIY tutorials, specifically on bracelets. The photo above are some of the ones that inspired me to get my craft on.

DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet
DIY Rope Bracelet
DIY Friendship Bracelet

Here is what I ended up with! They were pretty easy! The only ones that gave me a hard time were the rope bracelets, I could not wrap my head around how to tie that adjustable knot, but I finally got it right after several tries. The friendship bracelet, while it took a long time, it was pretty relaxing to sit and do while I watched Celebrity Rehab.  And you guessed it, I did not have rhinestones, but I did have turquoise beads (shocker).

The turquoise/green and shades of grey bracelets idea was found in the comments of Honestly WTF and you can find that tutorial here. I can’t wait to figure out how to mix and match these with other bracelets I have.  What DIY stuff have you been doing recently?

I love a bold necklace and when I saw this baby on sale at Anthropologie I just couldn’t resist sharing it.  I can see this dressing up an outfit or just wearing it with a white tee and jeans! LOVE it AND the price!
