Shake Up Your Summer With Beaded Jewelry

Remember the many hours of your childhood spent clumsily beading jewelry for your mom? Well, forget about it, because these beaded pieces are taking the medium from juvenile to show-stopping. Beaded jewelry is the perfect way to pile on colors and textures, whether you go for a subtle chain of tiny glass beads or an eye-popping pattern. You can pile 'em on your wrist, hang 'em from your ears, or go for an eclectic, summery spin on last year's statement necklaces. Many of these pieces recall a modified tribal aesthetic, with bright colors and small, irregular beads that make high-end feel hand-made. A couple of items on our list are even made in collaboration with local artisans in small villages across the globe. So, put aside those summer camp friendship bracelets, hit up the Internets this weekend and get your fix of brand-new beads!
