A gal sometimes always needs exotic earrings to accompany a simple bikini or sundress. Soffe shorts and an old T-shirt may be comfortable, but why dress down when you can look smokin’ at the pool or happy hour? We have found the perfect summertime jewelry source.

Don’t these look like they were discovered on your island vacation in a hidden, underground city?

Seattle-based Maria Carter is known for her one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry, which she sells on Etsy here: Maria’s Designs Handmade Jewelry. Her designs are inspired by the ornamentation, motifs and striking color combinations of ancient cultures. We think it is just perfect to pair with a kaftan and jeweled flats or a pair of glamorous sunglasses and a lightweight little dress in summer.

This jewelry is of high enough quality that you could even wear it beyond just the casual afternoon. I have a necklace of Maria’s that I wear constantly- even to black-tie affairs. As a matter of fact, I wore it to my friend’s wedding at the Montelucia Resort with my long dress and got crazy compliments.

Each delicately-designed piece is made using 14K and 22K gold vermil, fine and sterling silvers and high-quality gemstones.

  1. Hey,
    Great post, all the earrings look phenomenal. I especially love the carved out hoop dangle earrings with the beads hanging down in the center. It’s such a great look– I saw something similar in the New York Times style section and have been fascinated with the look every since! Cool blog.
