You know when you look at something and think “I literally do have not enough patience to do that”? Well that is exactly what I thought when I saw the jewelry from Candidate & Co! They hand bead their pieces and apparently they take over 6 hours to make. 6 hours for a pair of earrings! That’s dedication. I have always had a fascination with beading. I actually beaded an image onto a purse I have and although it looks awesome and gets me a lot of compliments it took wayyyy too long for my tastes! But Candidate & Co has done an amazing job of turning the art of beading into beautiful unique handmade jewelry pieces for everyone! I pulled a few of their best pieces from their Instagram below.
Besides the amazing detail they put into every piece, what I really like about their jewelry is their color choices. They use a combination of taupe colors with pops of neon color. And since the earrings are beaded, you get a great movement in the earrings themselves which I think would highlight the color really well while wearing them.
Look at the pink neon pop on this one! What a unique way to add some color!
They also get super creative and add in different patterns like the one below. I love that their style is trendy and fashionable so they are earrings you can wear even with the newest trends!
Cactus earrings anyone? I’ll take a dozen!
And of course, they have expanded beyond just earrings and added necklaces too. I really like to square pendant shape which matches their earrings perfectly. It’s amazing that they were are to seamlessly transition from earrings to necklaces using the same technique.
Love the cobalt blue shine on the beads on this necklace! A subtle, but bold way to make a statement!
