We're kinda obsessed with DIY everything these days — and with that comes DIY crochet jewelry. Hand-crafting artisans are what make Etsy so great, right? DIY jewelry has become one of the most fun things to both create and wear as accessories, and now, crocheted jewelry is a trendy little item to add to all your favorite boho styles. If festival season doesn't feature enough fringe and crochet looks for you, here's one more thing you can add to your must-have list this spring.
Crocheted clothing has been on the runways for several years now, and it is probably the delicate, homemade-with-careful-attention vibe you get when you see it that makes it so appealing. Whenever I've found these beautiful pieces of jewelry, from dangling earrings to ornate necklaces — all made from crocheting yarn together — they have been too lovely not to drool over.
That's the fabulous thing about Instagram: You're only one hashtag away from discovering a world of fashion that you might not have known about otherwise. So go on and give these international Instagram accounts some love. Many of them are small business jewelry designers with their own shops on Etsy or elsewhere online. And have your own look at #crochetjewelry to see what else you might find that you like. For now, here are the nine of the best accounts currently out there:
