In my eyes, there is no better way to beautify than to layer on a bit of worldly charm – whether it be in interiors or fashion. (They’re interchangeable in so many ways, after all!) A well-placed touch of the exotic always infuses an element of global appeal, the kind which inspires wanderlust, intrigue and fascination. I’ve long been an aficionado of using artisanal wares of all types from far-flung corners of the world both in my home and my wardrobe, so whenever I come across an amazing source for beautiful product, I want to share it with those who also appreciate the same aesthetic!
The Bead Chest boasts the world’s largest selection of ethnic beads … and that is no exaggeration! Their incredible inventory is absolutely endless, from glass beads, to pottery beads, to bone beads and more – all carefully sourced and with the company mission being dedicated to supporting developing communities through ethical trading.
Here are a few strands of mixed beads, of miscellaneous material and origin (ranging from bone to pottery), which I cannot wait to wear as necklaces once the weather begins to cooperate around here and actually warm up!
Until then, I’ll be draping them in every pocket of our home. They’re such a gorgeous addition to any interior vignette, and truly add so much visual interest and textural beauty!
In partnership with The Bead Chest, they will be offering my readers 15% off all orders within the next twenty-four hours! (Just use the discount code ASTRID15 at checkout.) They are perfect to wear as is, to incorporate as a decorative home accent, or for any myriad of creative projects. Their selections are already so very affordable, so this is a deal you certainly want to check out and take advantage of! Have a look and be prepared to be blown away with what you find!
Happy Spring … and happy embellishing!
