Geometric Shapes • See how structure and style come together when a variety of geometric-shaped materials are combined in these seven unique jewelry designs.
V-Link Necklaces • This sweet set can be assembled in no time by adding a handful of beads to the V-shaped connectors and then attaching a chain and clasp.

Hip to Be Square • Use square stitch to form a trendy focal piece in a neutral color palette or change up the colors of metals and seed beads to match any outfit.

Sky Portals • Inspired by science fiction novels, this necklace seems to offer a shipside view of what the universe might look like from space. The use of three squares in the sea of round elements mimics the windows on a ship and adds unexpected drama to a simple design.
