These bracelets made of marine ropes are so quintessentially New England, and perfectly embody the spirit of summer. Inspired by the beaches of Maine, each style is named after a different place in the Pine Tree State, such as Kennebunkport, Cape Elizabeth and Portland.
The accessories line, called The Ropes, is handmade by Maine native designer Shana Aldrich Ready and can be found in stores around the US (and internationally!). Click here for a list of stockists. the-ropes-main-bracelets-thumb.jpg

Remember charm bracelets? They were always fun, and are one of those pieces that never really go out of style. Now Monserat de Lucca is putting an elegant spin on your girlhood jewelry with their birdcage charm bracelet. Made in Thailand of 100% brass, this bracelet will go with almost anything.

Think you’re too old to wear sparkly star accessories? Think again. Giant Dwarf’s “glittery accents for grown ups” are inspired by early 20th century rhinestone performance-wear and floral hair adornments. Each piece is hand crafted from recycled materials, such as German glass glitter and reclaimed wool from sweaters. And what better holiday to show your stars than the 4th of July?


Summer fashion is all about taking it easy - too many belts and embellishments can weigh you down when it’s hot. And wouldn’t you rather be enjoying the sun then spending all your time getting dressed?

That’s why we love the simple jean shorts + tee look for the weekend. Take it up a notch with a bold necklace that goes with everything, like this wooden geometric option from Etsy seller JuliMade. With adjustable knots, you can easily make the necklace a different length that will work with everything you own.
