Thought you couldn’t wear any more accessories than you already do? I raise you beaded phone charms.
The Y2K-inspired accessory is the unexpected piece of summer jewellery, if you can call it that, that’s having a moment. According to Lyst, searches for the phone accessory has soared 82% since the start of July.
It joins the rising trend of kitsch jewellery, with beaded necklaces, resin rings and sunglasses chains popping up left, right and centre. The pandemic left many bored in the house, leading to the creative people amongst us to use their skills to get crafty and make some money out of their lockdown hobbies too.
For the busy amongst us, it’s a blessing. Just one quick search on Etsy and Depop brings up countless affordable beaded phone charms, while Urban Outfitters, Talis Chains and Ateljé have plenty of kitsch phone accessories, with pearl options available too.
While they add a little something to your phone, they’re practical too. You’ll never drop your phone of it’s firmly attached to your wrist!
So without further ado, here are 9 we love.
