Golden hour has never looked better โ€“ with the fading sunset providing a Pisces-esque glow amid salty waves and sand, this can only be described as what mermaid dreams are made of!

Beach bumminโ€™ while looking like a fashion queen isnโ€™t easy, but Nadya shines in a mix of my handmade jewels! Layers of shells, freshwater pearls, talisman charms and natural gemstones give a pirate-chic vibe to this lookbook, fittingly enough!

‘Tis the season for SHELLS! These DIY Gold-Dipped Shell Chokers are the perfect mix of beachy and chic. I love these gold-dipped shell pendants (find โ€™em here and here) because theyโ€™re an update to regular shells โ€“ they definitely add a glam factor to your piece.
