25 Jewelry Making Ideas for the Beach

By: Jennifer Oskin, Editor,
25 Jewelry Making Ideas for the Beach

After viewing this collection of 25 Jewelry Making Ideas for the Beach, you'll have no further need to fish around for the perfect DIY jewelry making idea. Whether you're packing for a beach vacation or looking for a fun DIY craft to do while at the seashore, this collection gives you a fabulous mix of DIY jewelry that looks good on the beach or off. You'll also quickly warm to the fact that most of these beach jewelry making ideas are budget-friendly, too. Using materials you already scavenged yourself like a cool seashell or piece of gorgeous beach glass, you can make easy, breezy accessories to add to your summer wardrobe.

If you don't have time to make DIY jewelry before your beach vacation, the best part about these projects is that you can also make them while on vacation. You can make your own pendant while enjoying the warm weather and sitting on the porch of your beach house. Another golden perk is that beach jewelry is very versatile. Throw on a necklace over your beach cover-up, and you're ready to transition from the sand to a tiki bar.

These jewelry tutorials are also easy crafts for kids to make. They'll have a blast learning how to make hemp anklets and colorful bracelets. Natural materials like hemp and seashells, as well as beads that mimic the colors of the deep ocean and tropical fish, are popular with this summer beach fashion trend. In any case, no matter what jewelry project you decide to make, your beautiful handmade jewelry is sure to make waves! 

Summertime DIY Bracelets and Anklets

Summer Pearls Bracelet

If you're looking for jewelry that can withstand the sand and surf, then bracelets, like the Braided Bead and Hemp Bracelets, are durable and perfect to wear to the beach. Bracelets like the Seashell Cluster DIY Bracelet make good beach accessories because they can easily slide on or off.

Easy Breezy DIY Necklaces

Mermaid Crystal Choker

Necklaces are a quick and easy way to transform your look from beach bum to island princess. From the laidback vibe of the Asymmetrical Donut Bead Necklace to the elegant look of the Stunning Sea Glass Necklace, you're sure to find a necklace that suits your style in this collection.

Beachy DIY Pendants

Mermaid Trinket Dangle DIY Pendants

Spend your hard earned money on the vacation spot, not on your beach accessories! Pendants are great budget-friendly accessories because you can add them to necklace chains that you already own. From the simple Serene Seashell DIY Pendant to the unique, crafty Mermaid Trinket Dangle DIY Pendants, these Beachy DIY pendants are worth the investment.

Sea-How-Pretty DIY Earrings

Deep Sea Blue Clay Earrings

If your suitcase is packed to the brim, then earrings are the perfect accessories for you to pack. Bring multiple pairs to easily change up your look. Wear no-fuss studs, like the Deep Sea Blue Clay Earrings, during the daytime to the beach; swap them out for dangling earrings, like the Stylish Nautical DIY Earrings, at nighttime to head to dinner.

Beach-Ready Barefoot Sandals Patterns

Bohemian Barefoot Sandals

One of the best parts of the beach is sticking your toes into the sand! You don't have to visit the ocean to enjoy these barefoot sandals patterns. Whether it is sand, grass, or carpet beneath your feet, you'll love the fun look and feel of barefoot jewelry. And the best part? When everyone asks where you bought them, you can drop jaws by saying that you made them yourself!

You could reticle this to " Jewelry for Every Day Florida Living". You can wear all of these beauties all year long down here. I saw a few I want to make up for Christmas presents. My niece would love an ankle bracelet and my grand daughter would love a sea shell pendant. Thanks for the inspiration.
