Loving all this sunshine!
Summer is the best time to be in the Pacific Northwest - it's completely gorgeous everywhere you look.
Sparkling water + majestic mountains + colorful flowers
It's a fun time to get out and explore.
That usually means backpacking for me. But this year an achilleas injury is preventing my usual outings, instead freeing up time for boating and road trips.
And since I can wear more jewelry on these kind of adventures, I thought it'd be fun to show you my favorites.
I'll have a necklace round-up for you soon, but this week, let's talk earrings...
These minimal earrings are fantastic for an outing on the water.
You don't have to worry about anything snagging in the ropes or catching on your sun hat strap.
Plus the diamonds absolutely shine in the sun. As the light hits, the sparkle adds extra umph to the beauty of you and your jewelry.
I make them in solid sterling silver or 14k yellow gold with recycled, certified G-I, S1 genuine diamonds. (They are also available with various birthstones)
Is your boat more the yacht variety?
You'll want to up the anti with this one of a kind, gold version of the diamond succulent studs.
These sweet beauties are down to earth charming with just the right amount of fancy flash.
The earring choices above are also great for sunbathing. But sometimes I get nervous wearing my diamonds in the water.
I worry the chlorine will affect the finish (pool water eventually turns polished silver black) or if one falls off in the ocean, it's gone forever.
Bring on the oxidized silver stud.
Perfect small earrings that...
These are also available in polished sterling silver or 14k yellow gold if blackened silver is not your thing.
When out in wilderness, especially hiking, my friends and I love to wear these little hug studs.
The little leaf design was inspired by the resilience of nature (tiny plants thrive in unhospitable rocks and sidewalks). So they are a great reminder that you can power through when the hike gets hard. (learn more about the epic hike that inspired them)
Plus they have the added benefits of the succulent earrings above - they don't snag on things easily (like your backpack) or rub against sweaty skin.
Cocktail hour and vacation dinners are the best break from the norm of routine. It's fun to get dressed up and embrace the late evening light. Plus, the conversations are more lively than during regular life so it's great to have conversation starter jewelry.
If you have multiple piercings, these also work fantastically with the earrings above, making it easy to get more out of the limited jewelry selections you bring on your vacation.
These long leaf post earrings are fun to wear with either succulents or leaf hugs.
The Strength Cascade earrings below are a fun way to show off your unique nature loving side.
If I'm going for simple, I love these rock drop earrings.
Also available in polished silver...
Pearls are a classic and although they look great anytime of year, feel especially fitting in the summer.
These pearl and gemstone chandelier earrings add just the right amount elegance to any party dress.
A friend tells me she feels like a glamorous rock start when she wears them.
When I'm feeling girlie and want to match a patterned sundress, these pods always look great.
