Pearls have been in fashion, out of fashion, back in fashion but, one thing’s for sure, they are definitely timeless. Yet the classic string of pearls can be the quickest way to age your look, if not styled correctly. Here are some ways to include pearl accessories in your wardrobe, whilst keeping the modern, youthful vibe.
My White Idea DIY: Sophie Bille Brahe inspired pearl earring
I first came across Sophie Bille Brahe 2 years ago- turns out 1 of my friends had helped her launch her line!- and since then I’ve loved the simple, minimalistic chic look of her pieces. Apparently, so does My White Idea DIY, who’s come up with this easy DIY tutorial. It was so simple, initially I didn’t even realise the blog was in Spanish!

A Birds Leap: Pearl crown
This DIY not only looks summery & gorgeous, it takes me right back to my University days. When I was studying in St. Andrews, I used to do a lot of wirework and made quite a few similar pieces to sell! I was actually stocked in a few galleries in Edinburgh & St. Andrews! 🙂 Full tutorial and photo credit to http://www.abirdsleap.com/2013/06/diy-pearl-crown-headpiece.html
Love Maegan’s versatile pearl hair accessory
I really love how simple & elegant this pearl hair tie is. It can be used as a hair accessory, a lariat and even a belt- my favourite type of project- multi-functional! I wonder if the black and white will be as striking on a brunette as a blonde, though?
