Nautical Tied Forever



I was so excited when I stumbled across Designs by Amanda Maire on Etsy, because her handmade jewelry was too adorable and unique not to share with you all! I think you'll have a few favorites just like I did.

Amanda is the owner of Designs by Amanda Marie, and is also a recent journalism grad of Oakland University. Her love for jewelry design began as a child when she was captivated by colorful and unique beads her father gave her, and since then she has taken her talent to new heights in selling over 900 handcrafted pieces to very happy customers all over the world! That's some serious sailing!

Amanda designs, creates, and sells all of her jewelry and even designs custom orders for weddings and special events. "I love creating pieces for people all over the world, and I take so much pride in my work that I have a connection with each piece I drop in the mail. The thought of someone receiving something from me, and it making them smile or feel positive in anyway - that's a really great feeling."

I wore one of Amanda's Tiffany Turquoise Infinity Knot Nautical Bracelets featuring a gold anchor charm and got comment on just how great the bracelet looked with gold and turquoise matched together. Very classic. The nautical cord is so soft, not rough at all and won't cling to any fabric. The clasps are great quality and the whole fit is just perfect, not too loose and not too tight.

The nautical rope bracelets can be paired with almost any outfit. My top choices would be:

1. Maxi skirt, tang top covered with a blue jean jacket, and braided sandals.
2. Blue jean shorts, comfy t-shirt, and your favorite pair of TOMS.
3. Bathing suit, lace coverup, hat, and sunny flip flops.
4. Tropical print sundress, sandals, bright clutch, and a light sweater.


Take a look at some of my top picks from Amanda's shop. These would no doubt make perfect gifts, or a special treat for yourself :)
