Summer rolls around and I gravitate towards accessories made of natural materials a little more frequently than other times of the year. Shell, straw, raffia, etc., and this season I'm especially drawn to wooden jewelry. No, not the standard beads on a string or a dull, chunky bangle. I'm loving the beautiful, architectural pieces that are not necessarily season specific. Especially the jewelry with gold and jewel touches that I see continuing gorgeously into a fall wardrobe or becoming a year round staple. Here are a few favorites that I've found so far, but I'll continue to be on the lookout for stand out pieces that raise the bar.
