Links We Love: Monday Edition

Colorful Bead Bracelets by Kluster

The past week has been SO. MUCH. FUN. We’ve been running around like crazy the past couple weeks, putting the final touches on the Fall/Winter 2014 Kluster Collection {coming in Sept!} and throwing a fabulous photo shoot with one of our favorites, Whitney Neal Photography. I’m just now catching up on the inter-webs. =) Happy Monday, friends, here are last week’s links we love.

Color Inspirations at the Smithsonian

Hello, lovelies!

I just got back from a little weekend trip to Washington, D.C., and I had THE MOST FUN visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. You guys, they had a whole wing dedicated to gems and minerals – I had no idea! I spent forever in this little nook – everywhere I looked, there were huge, bright, colorful versions of my favorite Kluster stones. When I say we use only real stones and minerals in our jewelry designs, this is what I’m talking about. All of your pretty Kluster necklaces start their life as a giant rock (just like the ones pictured below) before getting cut and polished into the round beads you see at I took a MILLION photos to show you, but here are a few of my favorites. {Please excuse the blurriness, these are all iPhone photos through glass!} I’ll be sharing more from the Smithsonian trip throughout the week. I found lots of colorful goodness for you, lovelies. =)
