Ropes & Roses

Hope you all had a great weekend! I have some pictures from the Green Scene festival I attended this weekend that I will have to post up later (a lot of beautiful flowers and greenery). For now I wanted to start off Monday with a little accessory inspiration. Lately I have been seeing more and more ropes or roses incorporated into accessories and I’m really digging it. I think it’s a great break from the norm of silver or gold and I love the organic quality of it (the simplicity just seems so right for Spring). It’s fun and low-key but also looks great paired with a glamorous out-to-there do like the first picture above. So here are some of my favs from fellow esty sellers. Enjoy!

Ivory Sailor Knot Headband 1, $14 by marcelacamargo

And these two are from the shop of one of my readers! Really great Amy!

I Love Knots Too, bracelet by Junghwa $17

Twisty Bracelet by Junghwa $14

Frayed Rosette Necklace, $32 by the ModMarket

Green and Black Statement Necklace, $35 by MissBettyLou's

Twill Rosette Hair Clip Brooch, $12 by GarlandsOfGrace

Here are some beautiful roses if you're the DIY-type and want to create your own rose-adorned pieces. I actually purchased these myself and am anxiously awaiting their arrival. I've been wanting to buy or make a rosette tee for awhile now, but haven't found one yet that wasn't too over-the-top so I'll be making my own with these. We'll see how it goes. (And yes ok, this makes it only semi-DIY since I'm not making the rosettes too, but I like to support fellow etsy shop owners and the price seemed well worth it.)

Hope you see something you love too!

  3. Love these!!! So soft, so adorable. I love hair pieces, they make the difference in any out-fit. I make these too and try to sell on etsy. The problem is that usually, for each piece I make to sell, I make one for me. Ohhh the rope bracelets are so unique!

  4. I love the double rose headband...and while we're at it, can I just have her hair too? :)
