STEP 1: Insert a 4mm jump ring and Swarovski Pendant art. 6731 14mm Crystal AB onto a 6mm jump ring. Repeat this process six more times, but on the last one just use the 6mm jump ring.

STEP 2: Cut 14 6cm long pieces of wire and make a loop at one end to form eye pins.

STEP 3: Insert Swarovski Fancy Stones art. 4195 Crystal F 14mm and 22mm into the Swarovski setting. Gently close prongs using tweezers. Thread the Swarovski Fancy Stones onto a head pin and form a loop at the other end. Cut off excess wire. Repeat this step four more times, but thread the last one onto an eye pin as shown in our illustrations with this step.

STEP 4: Insert the disk pendant and the 4mm jump ring including Swarovski Pendant into the loop of one of the eye pins made in step 2. Thread 4 Swarovski Bead art. 5000 3mm Crystal AB onto the eye pin and then add the shell pendant. Make a loop at the top of the shell pendant as shown.

STEP 5: Attach another eye pin and Swarovski Pendant onto the loop make at the top of the shell pendant in the previous step. Insert 4 more Swarovski Beads and the disk pendants. Repeat this step one more time – see illustrations for clarification.

STEP 6: Insert the Swarovski Fancy Stone art. 4195 14mm into the top most loop of the piece from step 5. Repeat steps 4-6 three more times to get three more similar pieces but of different structure. See illustrations for clarification.

STEP 7: Cut a 10cm long chain and a 42cm long cord. Glue the cord ends into the cord endings. Attach one of them to a spring ring and the second one to a 7mm jump ring.

STEP 8: Attach all the four pieces from steps 4-6 to the chain leaving a spare of 4cm to act as an extension. Attach the last Swarovski Pendant to the last link of this extension.

Festival Fever! DIY Bohemian Bangles ~ Design & Instructions

Summer Festival Fever

TREND

Summer doesn’t feel like summer without rocking out at a music festival. From family-friendly block parties to boutique “glamping”, if you haven’t got your checklist done, waste no time, ’cause this summer is loaded with options. Go old school with flower tiaras or Woodstock floatiness, or go modern in cyber punk or cowboy looks. But whatever you choose, remember to take your festival staples: denim cut-offs, boho jewelry, funky bag and bandana. It’s time to embrace fringes, tassel jewelry, floppy hats and all the other festival accessories you’ve been waiting all year to wear.

 Don’t forget the three golden rules: customize, customize, customize! So line up the crystals you’ll need for sexy earrings and bracelets; make a colorful tribal trim for your hat; and get a funky festival manicure with your friends. Then just tune in and get that weekend festival vibe!

TECHNIQUES

Stringing: String crystals onto beading wire, thread, cord, or even ribbon, depending on the size of the hole, is a very easy way to make beautiful jewelry or crystal creations to enjoy. With limitless colors available, you can achieve any number of design possibilities.

Knotting: The “Crowning Hippie Chic” hat project uses a technique called a “Surgeon’s Knot”, which worth mastering, as it’s a lot less likely to untie itself. It’s similar to the regular square knot, but with this difference: When you’re doing the first half of the knot, instead of taking one thread around the other thread just once, you wrap around it twice. This tight double-wrap will hold securely while you do the second half of the square knot in the usual way.

The Balance of Nature Focusing on The Progressive Trend WATER

WATER is arguably the most fundamental and powerful of all life forces. Water is essential to life, we simply cannot survive without it. Water is dynamic. It can be both devastatingly violent, or tranquil and calming. Whether we celebrate its depth and stillness, or simply gaze it in contemplative awe – water with its symbolic sense of rebirth and renewal, is influencing our life in new ways and holding the design world in thrall.

Swarovski Color and Jewelry Trends Spring Summer 2017

So often we look to nature to inspire us in many aspects of our life and water is shaping our world in a variety of new ways. Wellness spas centered on water and hydrotherapy are on the rise, while aquariums and underwater hotels help to highlight the inherent beauty of the marine environment.

Jewelry designs, fashion motifs and home decor that echo the brilliant hues of coral reefs, draw our attention to the need to preserve these fragile marine environments. They help us to be more mindful in protecting  our natural habitat and help us to be aware that clean water and keeping our ecosystems pristine, is inherently vital to our continued wellbeing.

BODY-CON FASHION ATHLEISURE TREND INCORPORATING CRYSTALS

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear trend

(Athleisure Wear Trend Pictures Compliments of SWAROVSKI)

Athleisure wear continues to be very popular with the idea that athletic wear can also be stylish and upgraded with embellishments using Swarovski Crystal Sew-On Stones, Swarovski Crystal Buttons and Swarovski Crystal Flatback Rhinestones. Fashion focuses on form with easy-to-wear pieces in bright hues, boldly decorated with crystal for a new day-wear design aesthetic.

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear Rock this popular trend

To make your Athleisure tops more fashionable, apply Transfers or Crystal Tex to add a bit of glamour. Geometric shapes arranged with an organic feel are especially popular. (please Contact Me for ordering details)

Athletic wear will continue to be very popular. The trend is moving towards embellishing athletic wear with Crystals and creating designs that can be dressy enough to transition from workouts into day activities, even work (if permitted), and (sometimes) even day into evening. It’s all about being able to transition from the gym or your yoga/palates class into your daily life, seamlessly. To do this well, your athletic wear needs to be fashionable and accessorized with crystals. (Any chance to add more Crystals into my life, well, what’s not to LOVE?!!)

Jewelry designs and embellished fabrics will embrace shapes generated by the movement of water – undulating, wavy elements are heavily embellished with crystal.

It’s Wedding Season! Perfect Time to Make These Stunning New Crystal & Pearl Earrings!

DIY Swarovski Crystal Wedding Earring Design free design and instructions

Well HELLO gorgeous new design! Wow, these Swarovski Crystal earrings are pretty stunning and they show off the new Swarovski Spring/Summer styles beautifully!

Turn heads with soft opulence on your “white lace and promises” day. Frame your face with beautiful statement earrings made with delicate Swarovski Raindrop Pendants, Jelly Fish Fancy Stones, and Crystal Pearls in the new Crystal Pearlescent White Pearl shade.

These would be lovely wedding earrings for the bride, bridesmaids jewelry or as a guest. The 6533 Raindrop Pendants are one of the most elegant Pendants Swarovski makes. They are brand new and I know will be very popular for all kinds of special occasions.

In the beginning, Swarovski had production issues with the Raindrop Pendants and we are just now receiving them. The day they arrived I made earrings for my self using the 6533-33mm Gold Blush Rose and I absolutely LOVE them so much! They are hands down my favorite new style! Every color is gorgeous! The Rhodium Crystal Silver Night is particularly exceptional as well. I honestly don’t wear much gold, but I was so drawn to them I couldn’t help myself. The Gold tone looks especially nice with the Crystal Golden Shadow and the Blush Rose. I can’t say enough about ALL of them…Love, Love, Love!!!
