The Nostalgic Earring Trend That's Taken Over

There's something refreshing about the new wave of DIY-esque jewelry. From beaded chandelier earrings to custom charm bracelets, the non-metal looks add more fun, and often more color, to our day. While our younger selves were nowhere near this design savvy, the more sophisticated takes on beaded jewelry taps into our nostalgia, making us reminiscent for the days of summer camp craft time and buying bead sets in bulk.
But designers are giving us all levels of cheeky with their take on the beaded earring. Between a set of cherries perfect for our long summer weekends and faux pearl chandelier earrings we’ll be saving for our next formal attire invite, we can’t get enough of the trend. Shop ahead for 10 beaded beauties to add to your collection.
