There is nothing like a warm day to bring out the desire to feel beautiful, don’t you think? These are the days when I find myself seeking as many avenues as possible for expressing my style and creativity in order to truly appreciate summer. The easiest way to do this is with some accessories. From our tips to our toes, summertime is the perfect excuse to celebrate the artists we love by wearing them.
Jessica Smith and Jillian Eacock of The Pigment Project are artists who channel their creative energy into handcrafting gorgeous beaded jewelry that absolutely sings summer. Smith and Eacock have full time jobs and, like many artists, spend their free time fulfilling their passion. Their earrings are created on a loom and designed with heart and pure creative joy. I am particularly fond of these Chiminea earrings myself but browse The Pigment Project and see what strikes your fancy. These are the kinds of pieces you reach for when you want to feel your very best. What better way to honor the coming of the sun, yes?
