Project DIY: Baroque n’ Roll Unveiling

This December our monthly DIY subscription service, Project DIY, came out with a collection inspired by the Baroque Style. This popular runway trend emanates radiance, drama and luxury, and is perfect for the holiday season.

While we announced the theme earlier this month, we have kept the projects under wraps. After weeks of waiting, we ‘re excited to finally unveil the Project DIY Baroque n’ Roll projects!

Project DIY Baroque Pearl Hand Adornment

The Baroque Pearl Hand Adornment is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Our beautiful cameo and pearl rosary connects to an elegant filigree ring with a sparkling rhinestone chain. It’s adds an unexpected sparkle to your outfit.

Project DIY Belle of the Ball Earrings

These Belle of the Ball Earrings are a fantastic way to add Baroque-inspired flair to any look. These earrings combine some of the most beloved elements from this collection, from the pearls to the intricate gold detailing.

Project DIY Gem and Lace Headband

The Gem and Lace Headband from the Baroque n’ Roll collection is a true showstopper. This project allows you to dabble in a new skill, sewing! Crafters sew the gorgeous lace trim into a fashionable headband, and attach the jeweled adornment to make it a sparkling statement piece.
