Finished For Friday: Summery Jewelry

Finished for Friday is sponsored by Three Under Two at Lit and Laundry. People share so many things they've finished up during the week, from big decorating projects, to reorganizing the sock drawers. I've spent this week of Spring vacation working on things for my etsy shop, Little Somethings. Last week I found a great background layout for my pictures, so this week I finished photographing all of my jewelry, and I'm slowly getting it all up on etsy as I crop and resize. I've also made a few new, summery pieces of jewelry. For some reason I see macrame jewelry as very summery and beachy. I've got a few different styles of anklets, which are so much fun to wear with shorts and capris in the warm weather.

I love the colors of this anklet, it goes with everything and really catches the eye.
   
Perfect for all those summer barbecues and long holiday weekends.
On this bracelet, I put dark blue hemp inside the natural so it peeks through. It looks great with these tribal style beads.
   
I think of this bracelet as being a really traditional style of macrame, with both square and spiral knots. The stone-looking beads keep up the whole "natural" theme.
I'm madly in love with the glass fish beads on this anklet!
   
Using the colored hemp is a lot of fun and brings a new look to a very 1970s craft, don't you think?
I hope you'll check out my shop's Facebook page or Little Somethings on etsy to see the other styles I've been working on. I'd love some comments or suggestions for other color combinations or styles.
Have a great weekend, and be sure to visit Lit and Laundry and see what other folks have Finished for this Friday!
