The Rise Of Craftcore Jewellery And Why You Need A Seashell Necklace This Summer

Hailey Bieber’s beach attire is a perfect example: think bucket hats, body chains and a lime green glass bead necklace with a matching heart-shaped pendant. Influencer and stylist, Marc Forne, meanwhile, opted for a rope-style necklace with a colour-matched glass bead by Spanish brand Gigamguas.

“It taps into the wider fashion trend for a more retro, homespun look. Instead of crochet and embroidery, think beads and rough-cut gems. Follow Chloé’s lead and keep this boho look elevated by pairing your craftcore jewels with a summer slip,” says Vogue’s Jewellery and Watch Director, Rachel Garrahan. “Parisian jeweller Marie Lichtenberg’s pieces are the perfect mix of irresistibly charming hand-enamelled lockets on colourful cord necklaces.”

Blame it on Gabriela Hearst, or pop culture’s obsession with niche throwback trends, but the Y2K puka-shell-surfer-boy-vibes are something to consider for your holiday wardrobe. Feel like adding some beachfront pizazz to your jewellery box? You’re in luck as beading comes in bucketloads. The aforementioned Gimaguas buy is one to bookmark, as is Anni Lu and her hits of colour. Chloé’s macrame-cocooned seashell not only semaphores trend awareness, but it is also the grown-up alternative to the puka necklace that you can nab on Etsy, which – praise be – can also be worn at night. The same holds true for the Knwls x Panconesi’s kaleidoscopic cocktail rings. Wearing holiday memorabilia is cool again – you’ve heard it here first.
