Sections of white, blush and pink are strung together for a colorblocked effect. The mix of scale, materials and textures within these beads creates even more interest. The necklace is finished with a pretty pink ribbon that ties in a bow behind the neck. Dress up a T-shirt or finish off a special occasion outfit with this versatile piece. This ombré necklace takes one to two hours to make.

Bauble Bracelet

This chunky bracelet combines glamour and fun all in one. Large quartz beads alternate with medium faux-pearls and mother-of-pearl shell nuggets on a gold chain. One of the best parts about this bracelet? It can be made to the exact size needed to fit any wrist. This bauble bracelet is finished with a pretty gold fastener.

Silver spacer bars set apart each strand. The color palette ranges from a bold green to the lightest aqua blue.
