Don’t waste your time with any other layered necklace….these trendy-chic pieces are the perfect weekend DIY! Mix chains, charms and crystals for an eclectic accessory that goes with virtually any outfit!

These necklaces have been popping up all over Pinterest, Instagram and fashion bloggers’ accounts, and they’re definitely easy to make. Choose a mix of your favorite pendants and create a curated collection to feature. I also love mixing metals here for a bit of bohemian flair — the more eclectic, the better!

Follow along with my full Youtube video below — and have fun creating your collections!

Double the trouble when the cousins come together for a collab…usually I’m the one behind the cam shooting the fam, but fortunately we could finally coordinate this post! With a blend of boho-chic style and plenty of sparkly jewelry, we definitely had to epitomize our everyday vibes. Hence the mix of witchy/hippie/gypsy/edgy, but we ALWAYS focus on that glitz! Karlee forced me to step out of the “all-black wardrobe” box and add in some color…..which matched the awesome graffiti art in downtown St. Pete, Florida, amazingly well!

In celebration of the launch of CosmoStyle Jewelry, a line of jewelry and scarves designed by myself and designer Theresa Lirov (in collaboration with the editors at Cosmopolitan magazine) – we featured a gamut of our fav pieces from the line! You can shop ALL (well, almost all, the statement necklace on me in the red outfit is my #DIY) pieces on the CosmoStyle Jewelry website here– with collections “Zen”, “Boho Traveler”, “American Prep” and “VIP”, there’s definitely something for everyone. Follow us on our Facebook page and Insta account for the latest news and trends. Let me know what your favorite piece is!

Karlee, let’s try to plan another shoot when I’m back in Chicago, alright?!

Summer is definitely the season to sport your best boho-chic accessories…..and we all can agree #DIY accessories are the best accessories, right?! Gemstone and agate pendants combine with metallic tattoos (they aren’t just for skin, did ‘ya know?!), crystal flatbacks and chain to create unique necklaces that pair perfectly with any summer outfit!

My signature Boho Bliss Necklaces come together pretty quickly, meaning you’ll be whipping these up for the whole squad. Choose bright colors if you want a funky, fun vibe. If you want a more classic look, you can’t go wrong with black and mixed metals.
