St. Patrick's Day Jewelry Projects

St. Patrick's Day is just a few days away! What better way to accessorize your St. Paddy's ensemble than with a piece of handmade green jewelry? If you don't have time to create a design if your own, browse through our collection of eProjects (just $4 each) to find the perfect piece. I've picked out a few of my favorites already:

The Emerald, Meet Copper necklace brings emerald glass and pearl beads together with brushed copper accents for a winning combination.
The forest green and silver beads in the Ginkgo Glamour necklace make for a more sophisticated look that highlights this handcrafted focal.
The Golden Holly necklace might just be my favorite of the bunch. The chunky green beads in this piece are punctuated with eye-catching gold accents, and the floral patterned gold connector reminds me of a piece of gold from the pot at the end of the rainbow!
The Rustic to the Max bracelet is another take on a copper-and-green palette. The cluster of dangles that hangs from the clasp makes this piece look fabulous from any angle.
Serpentine Summer is proof that monochromatic necklaces can be playful, too. This necklace is made with big, bold wood beads that make a statement with their snakeskin pattern, but are light enough that they won't leave you with an aching neck and shoulders at the end of the day.
The Ahead of the Curve bracelet is a great way to introduce yourself to beadweaving. The technique is easy to learn and you will have a beautiful bracelet to show for your hard work!
And for the mixed-media fans out there: We've already seen how well green and copper get along; make your own Copper Crescents focal beads and string them with some green beads or ribbon from your stash. They're sure to make an impression!

Since Pantone has selected Emerald as their Color of the Year, you know that your green jewelry will still be fashionable well after March 17th!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
