Wear It Twice: Rainbow Statement Jewelry

Although summer isn’t a rainy season that might bring a lot of rainbows, there’s still something very summery about a full spectrum of colors in one place. Rainbows are connected to carnival prizes, sugary drinks, ice cream sprinkles, and lots of happy moments. Summer is a great time for rainbow jewelry.

The trouble with having all of the boldest colors in a single piece of jewelry is finding pieces to go with it. Personally, I like to go with a combination of neutrals. Nothing sets the stage for a rainbow quite like black and white.

Sunny Days Rainbow Jewelry Collage

For this collage, I mixed black and white with earthy neutrals and sky blue, but something was missing. I added a few accessories to get a more CMYK look as well. A little yellow polish and some magenta lip gloss? Why not! It’s summer.

The Nangara fiber statement necklace is gorgeous in design as well as color. I found a few fun tutorials for inspiration, using fibers and rainbow palettes.
