Trend alert: Beaded accessories for spring

Beaded accessories are huge this spring, and are definitely on the must-have list for fashionistas everywhere. Incorporate beads into your wardrobe with jewelry, footwear, bags, and other accessories to create a stylish spring look. Whether you prefer the intricate beading on an embellished clutch, or only a few beads added to a pair of hoop earrings, you are sure to find a beaded look that will turn heads this season. 
While out shopping, look for accessories that will compliment your wardrobe and reflect your own personal style. Beaded sandals or wedges will compliment a simple dress or your favorite white tank and khaki shorts. Instead of basic gold hoops, try some with fun, bold colored beaded accents. Add a beaded clutch to your look for your next special night out. 
If you are ready to start shopping for the perfect accessories, then check out these great beaded pieces available locally. You won't have to travel far to get these great looks!
