Summer is nearly here, and there is nothing that will get you in the spirit like the ocean tones of aquamarine beads. Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids during ancient times and was used by sailors as a talisman of protection, fearlessness and a little good luck.
It is also a stone that is associated with eternal youth and happiness. It is best known for its bluish green ocean color.
All these factors make it the perfect stone for your best jewelry designs. Whether you are stringing yourself a new necklace, or getting camp-ready with some old school macramé, the gorgeous colors of aquamarine will make all your designs pop.
Macramé is one of the simplest ways to design your own unique piece of jewelry. We love the way macramé bracelets and anklets look with your fingers and toes in the sand. The best part is you do not need any fancy jewelry-making equipment, just select your beads and twine (string, hemp or even straw) and you are ready to rock!
