Beaded bracelets are always in style, no matter what the season. In the summertime, you might want to accessorize a navy blue dress with an armful of small beaded bracelets in primary colors. In winter, the same color would look elegant with a pearl bracelet, or gold or silver beads.

Individualized Touches for Beaded Bracelets

You can find many sites online that create unique, personalized jewelry, and beaded bracelets easily lend themselves to being customized. To start, choose the color, material and shape of the beads you want. Materials range from playful plastics to minerals and ceramics to gold, silver, crystal or pearl. And round is no longer the only shape available: you can get square beads, ovals, trapezoids, or almost any shape you can imagine.

Charms can also add individuality to a beaded bracelet. This would make a very thoughtful gift. Say you want something for a friend who loves gardening. You might start with pink quartz beads in the shape of roses, alternating with round silver beads. Add a sterling silver trowel, flower pot, or seed packet charm, and you have a very special gift that shows you put some thought into it.

Beaded bracelets are also easy to personalize with the recipient's name. You can choose to have the letters engraved on individual beads, or spell the name from letter-shaped beads. Teenagers, especially, love these bracelets. Again, they make wonderful gifts, anything from a pastel ceramic letter-shaped name bracelet to a crystal or gold bracelet with the name engraved on gold beads. Whether for fun fashion or an heirloom-quality keepsake, beaded bracelets are an excellent choice.
