Seaside jewelry set

Preserve a day at the beach with these beach-style beauties

On your next trip to the beach, leave the seashells in the sand with your footprints. Instead, pick up a few metal beach-themed charms. Combine them with symmetrical glass pearls, and you’ll have one fin up on any mermaid.

“These whimsical charms bring back wonderful memories of snorkeling and days at the beach.”
