I'm totally loving this bug-inspired jewelry trend.  In real life, I've been known to shriek when I see any type of bug--even a fruit fly!  But that doesn't mean that I can't love wearing a pair of dangly faux insects from my ears.

The Mall at Rockingham Park has oodles of different bug trinkets.  I'm pretty obsessed with some of the fab gems I've found.  I honestly didn't expect to become so obsessed with anything insect related! But the cool thing about this particular trend is that you can take it as far as you want.  From tiny butterfly stud earrings to huge bee bangles, it's totally up to you how you incorporate the trend into your look.

Pictured are a few of my fave bug finds:

1. Claire's Pastel Butterfly Drop Earrings ($7.50) - These earrings have everything a girly girl like myself could possibly want: they're pink, super dangly, elegant, and the butterflies are simply adorable.  If you're a little hesitant to try out the whole bug jewelry look, a pair of earrings like this are a great option, since they're toned down a bit.

2. Macy's Betsey Johnson Blue Glass Crystal Bug Stud Earrings ($25.00) - Betsey Johnson earrings? Yes, please. I've always loved her gorgeous baubles and these pretty blue bug studs are no exception. 

3. Sears Fantasyard Gray Pearl Spider Pin ($10.59) - One of the few spiders elegant enough for me to love, rather than fear!

4. Lord & Taylor Multi-Stone Butterfly Ring ($350.00) - Though this ring is a little pricey, it's the type of bling that'll be in style for a long time. It can be worn with nearly every outfit; you can pair it with a fabulous dress for a night out, or wear it with a simple t-shirt and jeans. Either way, it's a definite statement piece.

5. JC Penney Bee Motif White Enamel & Gold-Tone Bangle ($15.00) - This bangle is totally unique. On its own, it'd be a pretty bracelet, but the cute little bee gives it almost a vintage feel.

6. Sears Betsey Johnson Iconic Vintage Rose Crystal Bug Drop Earrings ($76.55) - Another pair of Betsey Johnson earrings! I love the colors used in this pair. They look so pretty and girly--you almost have to look twice to see that they're actually little bugs.

All of these pieces would look amazingly gorgeous on anyone.  I think that's what I like most about this fun trend; no matter what your age, style, or price range is, there's something for everyone. 

What do you think about bug baubles? Is this a trend you could see yourself sporting?
