Tired of snow-capped hillsides and frozen toes? Plan a trip to escape the winter blues and be sure to make special jewelry to make it memorable. We’ll give you some tips for creating custom vacation style as well as free designs you can try and be ready to pack in no time!
The first thing in determining what to make is figuring out where to go on vacation. If your winter getaway is a tropical island, for example, your best bet is to wear light jewelry that won’t cause a lot of perspiration. A simple strand necklace or delicate drop earrings are your best bet. Try making our Fancy Flight necklace idea or Beth’s Beach Earrings to achieve this look.
Cool and warm color combinations are perfect for creating summer style, too, like in our Catch a Wave necklace idea. Play with different elements to make something fun, something that reminds you of summer. You’re on vacation to take a break from winter, after all!

Fine silver chain that sweeps across the shoulders (or just above) will give you a classy feel for an evening out but will still be simple enough to wear during the day walking along the sandy shore. Try one of these three earring ideas for stunning results:
