    As soon as it's warm enough to bare our wrists in all their arm-partying glory, we begin the never-ending search for the most colorful, fun, and eye-catching bracelets. They're the quintessential summer accessory (we don't advise going to an outdoor concert without rocking at least five awesome wrist baubles), but the market is a bit saturated. The same stores sell the same brands, and every on-trend gal wears them — yawn. That's why we jumped for joy (and debated whether we should even shar the secret with you) when we discovered Alexandria-based designer Christine Caj and TINNLILY, her line of super-cool handmade bracelets.

    Stocked with a rainbow variety of original designs featuring edgy hardware and Swarovski crystal detailing, the shop has something (more like a lot of things) for every stylish type. A baby-pink braided number with Swarovski rhinestones is girly and elegant; a white suede triple-wrap bracelet with hand-painted Southwestern designs is perfectly boho; and an ultra-thin turquoise leather version with gold hex nuts is subtly chic. The shop also has a sampling of necklaces and earrings begging to be worn anywhere your warm-weather ramblings may take you. Click through to see our top picks, and trust us — you'll want to have your debit card on hand. Summer, here we come!
