I know it can be tempting to jump the gun on, well, just about every holiday or upcoming season…I know Fall is just around the corner and I’m certainly as excited it as y’all are…cozy sweaters, stunning foliage and pumpkin ev-e-ry-thing…. but wait…let’s pump the brakes for just a sec!

Fall and all of its delicious and natural gorgeousness will be here before we know it, so let’s take the time to enjoy the last bit of summer time fun while we can!

I’m more of a “be here now” – try and enjoy the moment – type of gal…so in an attempt to hold onto every last precious moment of summer and all it’s glory, here are some color inspirations and jewelry designs that we can admire, make and wear before it’s too late!

Last week we had a surge in demand & popularity for the beautiful Swarovski Crystal 6731 Sea Snail Pendant. They are available in many colors and are quite unique.

Spring/Summer Swarovski Color, Jewelry Trends & Style Inspiration ~ Focusing on the Progressive Trend: WATER

Swarovski Blue Color inspirations

New Swarovski Crystal Spring and Summer 2017 Innovations:

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.

Fashion and Jewelry Trends

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.

Our fascination of underwater life continues grow and trend, where mysterious creatures and new fantastic crystal shapes, such as the New Swarovski Crystal 2612 Jelly Fish Flatback and 1695 Sea Urchin Round Stone, lend endless inspiration to designers. This on trend jewelry design displays the beauty of the Swarovski Jelly Fish Flatback glued into settings and connects the the Swarovski Crystal 4139 Round Rings in vibrant hues such as Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Virtail Light. A beautiful reference to movement and flexability with this free flowing type of aquatic design inspiration!

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?!!)

MOVEMENT

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

The fluidity of modern lifestyles extends into fashion. Glittering crystal components reflect the beauty of light on water.

They’re lightweight, and best of all – they s-t-r-e-t-c-hmaking them simple as-can-be to take on and off! They make perfect gifts because they fit most wrist sizes and because they stretch, you can wear them up higher on your arm if you like it to stay in place (while you get your workout on, or just chasing around those energetic kiddos). You can also wear them loose around your wrist and stack them with a variety of beautiful colors. Sooooo many great options with these Swarovski Crystal Bracelets – no wonder they’re so popular!

Celebrate the Holidays with Sparkle and Style!

Opra shares her most favorite thisng 2013 list

It’s official…the anticipation of the upcoming Holiday Season has just hit me!

I’m not sure if it was because I recently read about Oprah Winfrey sharing her “Most Favorite Things!” 2013 list, or if it was making plans for Thanksgiving and a Friends-giving that has got me so excited, but I’ve just been inspired for this year’s festivities!

Swarovski_Crystal_Star_Ornament_2013Swarovski Crystal Star Ornament 2013 

There are so many wonderful traditions that we all do to create magical and memorable experiences for the holidays. The moments that bring me the most joy are decorating the house, cooking yummy meals and treats to share, creating fabulous sparkling gifts for friends and family (plus fun sparkles for myself!) and making special memories with the ones I love.

Wholesale Swarovski Elements Sparkling Heart

I’m sure everyone enjoys all of these things and I know the most rewarding experiences are the times when you pour your heart into everything you do, whether it’s creating, cooking, beading, giving, or spending quality time with quality people.

Opras favorite things 2013 Susan Hanover Earrings Candy Crush

Susan Hanover Earrings

There were three items on Oprah Winfrey’s “Most Favorite Things” 2013 list that caught my eye, and I thought to my self, I like that but what if I could add my own little special touch to it? They would be perfect little handmade gifts, with an added sparkly bonus, plus I could make one for my self (just for good measure).

These “Candy Crush” earrings resemble the Swarovski 6100 Taerdrop Pendants that can be made into stunning earrings for a fraction of the price.

Swarovski 6100 Teardrop Pendant Earrings

Featuring Swarovski 6100 24mm or 34mm Teardrop Pendants created into earrings in Crystal Vitrail Light, Clear Crystal, Fire Opal, Ocean Blue, Terrenum, Crystal Bermuda Blue, Crystal Vitrail Medium and Crystal AB

Swarovski 6106 Pearshape Pendant Earrings

A similar design idea features the Swarovski style 4327 Pearshape Fancy Stones made into gorgeous earrings. You could also create a classic design using Swarovski 6106 Pearshape Pendants.

Opras Favorite Things 2013 Embellished Headbands

Another sparkling item that made Oprah Winfrey’s “Most Favorite Things” 2013 list were  these fun and glitzy headbands.

I love the idea, but they are a little pricey and you could make a few of your own custom headbands for as much as it would cost to buy just one of these. They make perfect little gifts or sparkling stocking stuffers too! Your design options are endless with Swarovski Beads, Pearls, Flatbacks, Sew-On-Stones or Buttons. Embellishing a one-of-a-kind accessory has never been easier or more fun! Here are lots of inspiring ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Oprah’s Favorite Things 2013 List Featuring Purse Mirrors

One more item making the list that piqued my interest were these delightful personalized purse mirrors. They are colorful, handy and stylish, but could stand to have a little more sparkle on them, don’t you agree? Thankfully that’s a simple fix! All you need are Swarovski Flatbacks and a little E6000 Glue…and vuala! You have created a stunning, personalized compact that is functional and most of all stunning!
