We're feeling super Summery this month and have pulled out our favourite floral charms and ribbons for some light and bright accessories. Jewellery made of soft cords and thread are perfect for wearing to the beach and to your Summer festivals. Make your designs a little looser than beaded jewellery so that they last longer and don't stretch out of shape in the Summer sun.



These beautiful Liberty print inspired ribbons are so versatile and are perfect for adding a splash of colour to your everyday outfits. Try using the skinny spaghetti cords and some neat end caps as fun, bright shoelaces! Try adding a pop of your favourite ribbon to your other accessories. We've tried wrapping up a cute pair of sun glasses with the flat 'Cream Eve' mix and sewing on some pearls for a bit of sparkle! If you're sticking to a simple bracelet or necklace, make sure to finish your design securely with a neat clasp like the shiny toggle clasp above. It comes ready to glue your ribbon or cords into!

If you know someone who loves gardening, these cute nature inspired charms are a great way to add a personal touch to thoughtful handmade gift. Choose from rose gold,

silver and gold plated charms in

hundreds of styles and match them up

to make a cute gardeners charm bracelet!

Match these charms with rose gold or silver plated jump rings and chain for a neat finish.
