Natural stone may have had its moment in the (fashionable) sun, but it isn’t on its way back into the darkness. Whether you’re perusing the fine jewelry department or scrolling through JewelMint, geode and faux-geode pieces are still gracing the shelves. Unfortunately, like so many other pretty things, they can be… pricey.
Of the natural pieces, I prefer druzy. Lucky for my, faux druzy is inexpensive and available at major craft stores. For about $5 and 15 minutes, I made my own chunky bracelet– and I’m kind of loving it.

Yogurt disapproves of druzy. And jewelry making as a whole.
Ta-da! Within a few minutes you have a great new arm party staple.
Even Yogurt came around to the idea… and then proceeded to sit on his new favorite bracelet.
You know what I’ll be wearing tomorrow.
