Shine Bright Birthday Girl!

Happy You Day

It’s one of my Best Girlfriend’s Birthday’s and I wanted to make her something extra special and sparkly! She Looooves sparkles! I’ve made her many Swarovski Crystal sun-catchers over the years and she has them hanging all over her home. She has one room with huge south facing windows and she loves texting me pictures of all the rainbows dancing about. She calls it Rainbow Power Hour! I love it, it always brightens my day!

Happy Birthday LA

Here’s Lauren & I a few years ago having fun and celebrating the holidays together. I (left) have the goofiest look on my face (honestly, what am I doing???!!!) I really didn’t want to post this (so embarrassing) but it was a great one of her, and it is HER day after all…so I took one for the bestie team ūüėČ

Anywhoes….the new Swarovski 6926-36mm Growing Crystal Rhombus Pendants are so absolutely STUNNING, that I knew she had to have one! I’ve been so inspired by these beauties that I made her a necklace that I’m sure she will love!

Here it is……

Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design Inspiration Authorized Reseller wholesale beads

She loves necklaces with large pendants that sit right on her upper chest as a brilliant focal point, so I handmade this little treasure for her. I wanted it to be fairly neutral in color, so that she could wear it with a lot of different outfits.

I decided on Swarovski Crystal 5810 Light Grey Pearls, Clear and Crystal Silver Shade highlights in 5328-4mm & 6mm Xilion Biocne Beads, with a few 5000-6mm Round Crystal Satin accents.

As the fashionistas say, grey is the new black, so I thought a mixture of light and medium grey tones would work well together, balanced out with clear crystal.

For the unique accent beads, I used a 5500-10mm Pearshape Swarovski Crystal Bead as well as the Swarovski 5650-12mm Cubist Bead in Crystal Silver Shade.

My Cousin Got Married! Come See Her Gorgeous Wedding & Our Adventurous Trip!

(All of the professional photos were taken by King Street Studios)

Awwwe Weddings…who doesn’t Love a wedding? Everyone’s looking fancy, smiling, and excited for the happy couple. There’s a palpable romance in the air and there’s just something absolutely magical about¬†sharing and celebrating LOVE!

It was a real treat to be celebrating my cousin Kelly’s wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. She’s my Mom’s brother’s youngest of two daughters and she was marrying Adam Weiss.¬†They’re a super fun couple who love each other dearly and I’m excited to share their AMAZING wedding with you!

savannah-georgia

Hold your horses for just one minute….before I get to the wedding, we made a little extended trip out of it by first, by visiting Savannah! The Gorgeous, one-of-a-kind Savannah!

It can be tough to get the family together these days, so we wanted to take every chance we can get, and this was a great one!

fam

My sister Lily, my parents and I, all had a ball exploring Savannah Georgia.

You can’t see it too well, so here’s a better picture; I’m wearing one of my favorite tassel necklaces that I made with (non other than) what else, Swarovski Crystals (of course)!

swarovski-crystal-tassel-necklace-for-sale

I handmade this Swarovski Crystal Tassel Necklace using Swarovski Tahitian Pearls and Aquamarine Satin Crystals. The two colors compliment each other so well and I wear it all the time because it goes with practically everything! The navy blue undertones mixed with a sophisticated sparkle, looks especially  nice with jeans. I sprinkled in some Silver Crystal Rhinestone Rondelles (Swarovski is only making the Rhodium now, which is still very nice, just a slightly darker plating) and I added some extra drama above the tassel with the  Swarovski 80101 BeCharmed Pave Beads. The large hole allows for the thread to easily fit through and attach it to the clasp with a jump ring. I just love the clustered pave crystal look!

lily-and-harm-on-the-river

Lily & I capturing the moment along the river. Those twinsies smiles just say it all ¬†ūüôā

Lily handmade her pearl earrings as well. Making jewelry runs in the family! Luckily our parents taught us at a young age & put our little nimble fingers to work! We all helped out making crystal beaded strands and necklaces for the family business. Then¬†we would all have a ball together¬†selling at art’s and craft fairs. Those are the days I cherish the most! Swarovski…bringing our family together, one crystal at a time ¬†ūüôā

We loved walking all around Savanna and soaking up the rich culture. Seeing the historic Bonaventure Cemetery was a real treat and we even made it to Tybee Island. We happen to catch a terrific jazz festival, which was a fun way to dance off all the fabulous food we were enjoying!

A fantastic time was had by all…now off to meet our brother Jaia, his wifey Breanna and Lily’s hubby James in Charleston for the wedding!

lily-jaia-and-i

Here’s the Schmidt crew (Harmony, Jaia and Lily). I’m the oldest, but somehow the shortest…how did that happen?

We had a fun, albeit HOT & HUMID Fall day exploring Charleston.

lily-and-harm

We’re all smiles as we head off to the rehearsal dinner!

You can’t really see our jewelry well, but Lily is wearing a necklace and bracelet I made with dainty fresh water pearls in a light cream color mixed with Swarovski Crystals in Rose Satin and ¬†Light Rose Satin. Her dress is actually a baby pink and complimented the dress beautifully.

swarovski_6533-blush_rose_gold-raindrop_pendants

I’m wearing the new Swarovski Crystal 6533-33mm Raindrop Pendants as earrings in Blush Rose with Gold plating. I absolutely ADORE them! I can’t say enough about this gorgeous style. I have worn this shape in different colors of earrings and layered necklaces almost every week since receiving them. I can’t get enough of them!

Every time I wear them, I receive more compliments then the last – honestly it’s my favorite style Swarovski has made – I know I ¬†know – they make so many beautiful styles and I shouldn’t pick favorites – but I can’t help it! It’s¬†won my heart! They are just so elegant and easy to make jewelry with! OK, I think my rant is over, thanks for bearing with me ūüėČ

rehersal-dinner

It’s Rehearsal Dinner Time! Yay!

We had so much fun catching up with the fam! I’m sitting next to my cousin Holly, (Kelly’s sister) who I just LOVE so much! She’s next to her hubby Tim, who is super fun, great guy all around and¬†so glad he’s apart of our family! What a fun night with everyone!

Next up….the¬†BIG day!

family-fun-at-kellie-wedding

Here’s the whole family (minus my hubby Mike). He was a real trooper holding¬†down Rainbows of Light while I go off and play! Well, somebody’s gotta ship those sparkles to you, and although Kashi’s a smart pup,¬†somehow a girl just doesn’t appreciate a bag full of bones in the mail when she’s expecting a bag full of Swarovski Crystals ¬†ūüėČ

My Mom is wearing the Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel necklace that I made her for her Birthday! It made me feel so good that she wore it and loves it so much! I made it with Black Swarovski Pearls, Crystal Silver Night, Black Diamond and Crystal Silver Shade beads, along with accents of Gold Black Diamond Rhinestone Rondelles and finished with a Gold clasp. I also added an 80101 BeCharmed Pave Bead in Black Diamond.

My sister-in-law makes jewelry as well and she’s wearing beautiful Swarovski Crystal and Pearl dangle earrings.¬†She makes custom¬†jewelry for all kinds of occasions. Check out all her sparkling goodies at: Crystal-Princess.com

I bet you’ll never guess what earrings I wore to the wedding ¬†ūüėČ

kelly-and-adam-17

Here’s the lovely bride and she’s looking more beautiful then EVER!

Kelly is a personal stylist, so this girl KNOWS fashion. She’s wildly¬†successful and so much fun to be around. She’s also one of the most hilarious people I know and loves to have fun with life! Her soon to-be last name is Weiss, so she cleverly¬†named her wedding website Twice The Weiss (too cute!)

kelly-and-adam

This shot is adorable! They’re both so excited to see each other for the first time on their wedding day!

kelly-and-adam-2

Even MORE Adorable!

Here comes the Bride…

She’s escorted down the isle by my wonderful, loving Aunt Sue. We were all tearing up that her Dad, Tom couldn’t be there. Unfortunately he passed away many years ago after his battle with cancer. He was the most fun-loving person, we all loved him very much and I know that he was¬†there in spirit. Kelly embroidered Toms initials on her sash and there were caring sentiments said before a moment of silence to honor him.

My cousin Holly gave the best matron of honor toast! It was funny, sweet and heart-warming. I just love this picture, all those smiles just makes me smile!

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

New Swarovski Crystal Spring Summer 2017 Innovations sneak peek

Swarovski New Spring/Summer 2017 Trends and Innovations:

THE BALANCE OF NATURE

Over the past 15 years technology and science have become a huge influence in our lives, from the way we meet, interact, live and even age. The constant influx of new technology has steadily become overwhelming, which has created a strong desire to step back and pause for thought.

In our technology-driven world, people are beginning to seek meaningfulness, fulfillment, and satisfaction in their daily lives. Wellbeing has become a global mantra.

Mindfulness, quietness and wellness is becoming increasingly important and will become even more prevalent as we move into the future.

All of this has an impact on us personally, culturally and globally on many levels including our desires within the fashion and design world as a whole.

During this process, we examine how we can reconnect with our inner selves by focusing on the eternal elements: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire – the basis of everything we need to exist.

Today I am focusing on color, style and  jewelry trends within the

CLASSIC Trend: AIR

New Swarovski Crystal Spring Summer Innovations and Trends Classic Air Color Inspirations

Segment: Jewelry

A calm, luminescent palette of sophisticated neutrals, ranging from white to nude, pearl to soft grey, creates an element of solitude and an oasis of peace with the addition of barely-there lilac.

Swarovski Colors highlighted within this picture include:

Violet, Greige, Silk, Light Grey Opal, White Opal and Crystal.

Spring and Summer Jewelry Design Inspiration

Silver metal and ultra-light elements alternate with crystal embellished details to create a calm, light look.

Large, single stone crystal jewelry, which is being referred to as a centering stone, combined with small stones, will become more popular. This style evokes a feeling of balance and purity.

Full body jewelry is on the rise as well as large crystals seeming to be suspended effortlessly in gravity-defying structures. Repeating double-sided elements express a meditative character, reflecting continuity and contemplation.

Spring and Summer Fashion Inspiration:

A Return to Mother Nature is the overall theme, including lots of layering, organic textures and tone-on-tone color combinations.

In the quest for a greater emotional connection, touch and texture add a sensory experience to materials. Swarovski Crystal components in geometric patterns are integrated into sharp tailored designs to create a sense of stillness.

New Swarovski Crystal Spring Summer Innovations and Trends Classic Air Color Inspirations flag

“There is a desire to redesign the basics by giving them an emotional dimention, with an extra dose of soul to make them unique.”¬†(Peclers, SS17).

Streamlined layering, with varying thicknesses of materials overlapping to form a single garment will be a trend. “Experiments with materials in monochrome and geometric shapes add texture and replace prints.” (Peclers, SS17).

Highlighting a new aesthetic that is both minimal yet poetic, highlights this AIR trend beautifully.

Swarovski 5810 Round Pearlescent White Pearl

The New Swarovski Crystal Pearlescent White Pearl evokes a sense of purity and calmness while adding a contemporary twist of a delicate sparkle that the regular White Pearl does not have.

With its white, irridescent, frosted mother-of-pearl look, it brings a modern update to a genuine classic. It demonstrates both a matte and a shinny look at the same time, that complements the ever popular Crystal AB perfectly.

The Swarovski Crystal Dragonfly Pendant in Crystal Silver Shade or Crystal Golden Shadow is a whimsical style that wonderfully captures the essence of this AIR trend.

Dragonflies symbolize change in respect to self realization, a greater understanding of the universe and the deeper meaning of life. Dragonflies are associated with prosperity, harmony and growth, as well as being a sign of happiness, speed and purity.

Magnificent Marsala ~ 5 Inspiring Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Designs for the Stylist in You!

Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

(Color Love – Pantone Marsala by suelibertiny on Polyvore)

My new color crush is emphatically, marvelous Marsala!

I adore this color, not only because it’s the color of the year, but because it provides a versatile platform for which so many complementary colors can¬†emerge¬†from, such as deeper or lighter red colors, as well as purple or pinkish – salmon hues. This intoxicating tone¬†also has¬†the added benefit of pairing incredibly¬†well with standard colors, such as gold, silver, white and black.

You just can’t go wrong with the¬†multi-talented Marsala!

Swarovski Marsala Ruby and Gold Bracelet

Bracelet designed by Fineheart handmade jewelry on Etsy.

This gorgeous Swarovski Crystal bracelet features the 5520 Graphic beads in Ruby along with charming accents of 5020 Helix Beads in Crystal Golden Shadow. These color combinations work remarkably well with the 14K gold wire and clasp, creating a stately, sophisticated and high-end piece.

Swarovski Crystal Pearl Bordeaux Bracelet with silver pave beads

This bracelet design was created by DebraAnnCreations found on her Etsy page.

This beautifully simple yet very elegant Swarovski Bordeaux Pearl bracelet is accentuated with silver crystal pave beads. The silver really pops against the rich maroon-like red pearls.

 Marsala pearl and crystal necklace with silver tones

This twisted pearl and crystal necklace was created by JoyKatharine found on her Etsy site.

The berry-like tones found in Marsala pairs exceptionally well with silver hues as well. This multi-stranded Burgundy, Blackberry and Light Grey Swarovski Pearl necklace incorporates a touch of sparkle creating a youthful, energetic look that is fashionably chic. These are not Swarovski crystals, so to make this more of a luxurious, timeless piece, incorporate Swarovski Beads in light to medium grey tones such as Crystal Silver Shade, Crystal Satin or Black Diamond.

Swarovski Crystal Ruby, Padparadascha and Light Rose Earrings

These earrings were designed by Crystal Victoria found on her Flicker page.

Similar Marsala colors include Siam and Ruby which coalesce especially well with soft pink and salmon-like hues such as Light Rose and Padparadscha found in these lovely Swarovski Crystal Bicone earrings. A natural complimentary tone to tie these influences together is gold or rose-gold finishes.

 Swarovski Marsala Burgundy Emerald Cut Necklace

This necklace was made by BeYourselfJewelry and found on their Etsy page.

This stunning necklace is so captivating, it’s a standalone Burgundy beauty!

The Swarovski 4627-27 x 18.5mm Emerald Cut Fancy Stone boasts a brilliantly robust and earthy red wine color. This elegant style radiates an exquisite faceting structure that is graceful and timeless.

Fall and Winter 2014 Jewelry Trends ~ Focusing on THE DARKNESS OF DESIRE

Glamour Color Assortment Fall Winter 2015-16 trends

Glamour Trend ~ The Darkness of Desire

Discovering new inspiration in the fantastical and the mystical is the focal point for this glamorous Fall 2014 trend ¬†entitled ‚ÄėThe Darkness of Desire‚Äô.¬† This captivating trend focuses on intuition and mysticism – that richly imagined repository of our deepest emotions, a dark realm of superstition, spells, shadowy secrets and unspoken passions.

Purple flower color inspiration

This theme hinges on our ability to dream, to imagine, to look beyond the illusions of life. Dark passions and desires are as much a part of the everyday as our desires for happiness, peace and well-being.

The theme encompasses the importance of moving away from the robotic society that surrounds us, distancing ourselves from formulaic models, and delving into the creative ether surrounding the design world.

Deep mysterious picture of the moon with Owel

Mystery, intuition and magic are all evoked in this theme.

Our fascination with light evolves into a fascination with darkness –

the depth of shadows and shadowy secrets.

“This is where old-fashion beauty and savoir-faire meet contemporary creativity”

(A+A Design FW 2015-16).

Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Inspiration Pearl and Purple Necklace

Jewelry emulates mysterious, naturally grown forms with tiny intricacies and small oddities.

Crystals sit alongside antique beads, pearls, and patina surfaces to add a touch of glamorous sparkle and tangled metal forms. Decadence and embellishments return – taking us away from the minimalism of the past few seasons, heralding a strong return to opulent ornamentation.

Swarovski crystal earrings baroque style in Amethyst wire wrapped

There is almost a regal opulence to designs, representing a somewhat faded nobility for the modern day. Eclectic shapes and precious materials appear to contain a secret story.

Swarovski crystal and chain necklace

Minimalism is abandoned entirely within this jewelry trend and blends both history and emotion. Tarnished finishes recall dark desires and focus on the past – a key trend driver for major design directions.

Pendants and beads combine to create an individualistic style statement. Nostalgia and a focus on heritage are conveyed within the beautiful finish of the stunning crystal patina.

Glamour Color Inspiration

Deep and mysterious colors and coatings such as Jet, Jet Hematite, Crystal Silver Night and Black Patina pair well with the deeper brown tones such as Jet Nut, Dorado 2X, Smoked Topaz and Crystal Bronze Shade. Lighter coatings such as Crystal Silver Shade and Crystal Golden Shadow ¬†transition into light and dark purple tones. The Light Amethyst and Smokey Mauve pairs well with Crystal Antique Pink, and Crystal Paradise Shine who’s multicolored effect brings out tones that compliment Tanzanite, Crystal Lilac Shadow, Amethyst and Blackberry Pearl¬†and Crystal Iridescent Purple Pearl.

Glamour Transfer Flag Fall Winter 2015-16 Jewelry and Color Trends

Romantic Trend ~ The Seduction of Touch

Simple things that bring us luxury and joy are conveyed in this theme.

“Dreams of a luxurious everyday in which a measure of leisure and comfort is seen as a way to express one’s freedom of thought as well as artistic and creative inclinations” (Peclers AW15-16)

Swarovski crystal fall winter 2015-16 trends the seduction of touch

We seek a sense of safety and security as the digital world continues to overwhelm us.

Longing for human touch as an antidote to the remoteness of digital communication, we snuggle up in over-sized layers that provide luxurious reassurance. Faux furs, plush piles and soft knits are delicately embellished with small crystals. A strong focus on the zip becoming the fashion fastener of choice as the sportswear trend continues to gain momentum for both tailoring and casual wear. (please contact us for Swarovski Crystal zipper information).

Romantic Colors Inspiration

The Swarovski Romantic Color Inspiration seduces the senses by inviting you to play with luxurious combinations that move from saturated, more hardy tones found in nature to softer and more playful ethereal hues.

Orange tones such as Tangerine and Topaz begin on the left and blend well with all of the natural tones such as Crystal Copper, Crystal Chili Pepper, Crystal Bronze Shade, Smoked Topaz, Light Smoked Topaz, Bronze Pearl, and Crystal Golden Shadow transition nicely with Vintage Rose into Light Rose and Rose. The new Smoky Mauve color is soft purple tone with hints of a crystal-light grey mixture, making it an ideal hue to progress into clear Crystal or Crystal Silver Shade, Black Diamond, Grey Pearls and Crystal Silver Night.

Swarovski Fall Winter2015-16 trends the seduction of touch

Jewelry designed by Miranda Konstantinidou

Vibrant Tangerine introduces a strong focal point, offering warmth and radiance to a reduced color palette underpinned by the subtle refinement of Smokey Mauve. The contrasting effects of matt and shine are married together.¬†Crystals in smaller sizes offer delicate appeal for an instant ‘touch me’ effect.

Jewelry is smooth, sensuous and soft-edged, with crystals set closely together to form a fluid entity.

This gorgeous Swarovski Crystal beaded necklace incorporates a stunning blend of vibrant colors that work very well together, such as Rose, Fuchsia, Fireopal, Colorado Topaz, Amethyst, Chili Pepper AB and  Crystal Volcano. Similar energetic color combinations include Crystal Astral Pink with Tangerine, which is quite exceptional and try incorporating Crystal Copper with these hues because it adds a beautiful transition between the orange family tones and the natural darker or lighter brown hues such as Smoked Topaz, Colorado Topaz, Light Colorado Topaz and Crystal Golden Shadow.
