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.

Explore Swarovski’s “NO NORMAL” Jewelry, Color and Fashion Trends

New Swarovski Crystal Perspectives for Spring Summer innovations

SWAROVSKI’S MEGA TRENDS OF 2018

The New Innovations and Inspirations within Swarovski’s New Perspectives Trends give us a refreshing design palette to ignite our creativity as we look forward to an interesting future in fashion and jewelry expressions.

New Swarovski Crystal Beads Innovations and Trends No Normal

Today we explore one of the four top jewelry and fashion trends entitled

NO NORMAL

The NO NORMAL trend pushes our standard ideas and perceptions away from the norm, into a brave new world, where expressions of oneself are boundless.

This trend embraces lofty ideals of loving yourself and others despite all differences.

We are becoming more open to change, in all ways, including gender, race, religion, and society. This includes transitioning in our beliefs, embracing different perspectives, allowing others to be free to be who they truly are. All of this offers us hope fr a more inclusive future.

Swarovski_Crystal_No_Normal_Jewelry_and_Fashion_Trends

The color pallet highlighted within this jewelry and fashion trend include a new take on the traditionally bold tones. Softening the intensity of some primary colors with a lacquer effect, creates more of a gemstone look and incorporating natural neutral hues such as clear Crystal and White Opal, provides you with designs that can be paired with many different outfits.

Swarovski_No_Normal_Jewelry_Trend

Colors Influencing this NO NORMAL Trend Include:

Swarovski_Crystal_Rose_Peach

Rose Peach

Rose Peach is a soft peach to pink tone that evokes cherry blossoms in spring and English roses in late summer to create a bold, yet subtle romantic, and always elegant quality. The Rose Peach beautifully compliments all skin tone types and is particularly popular in wedding jewelry.

Swarovski_Crystal_Denim_Blue_On_Trend

Denim Blue

Denim Blue is a classic intermediate blue tone with a subtle hint of grey blending nicely with Montana blue and can be used both casually and transition seamlessly for sophisticated evening-wear. This color blends seamlessly with the exceptionally popular denim trend.

 Swarovski_4320_Crystal_Royal_Green_Lacquer_Pearshape_Fancy_Stones_

Crystal Royal Green

Crystal Royal Green Shiny Lacquer is a charming emerald green tone, created to emulate the rich and majestic colors found in an authentic emerald gem. This regal hue is accentuated by a subtle, yet stylish shimmer that captures the graceful and intriguing radiance within a true emerald.

Swarovski_4731_Crystal_Kite_Fancy_Stones

Clear Crystal

Crystal is the April birthstone color representing a clear diamond and its translucent quality creates a subtle shine of prismatic colors that complements all shades of the color spectrum.

Swarovski_4470_Crystal_Dark_Red_Lacquer_Cushion_Fancy_Stones

Crystal Dark Red

Crystal Dark Red Shiny Lacquer is a deep coral like or red wine type of color, similar to the Siam red but not quite as dark. The Shiny Lacquer coating is applied to the top of the crystal, creating a refined shimmer exposing the rich red tones underneath.

Swarovski_Crystal_White_Opal

White Opal

White Opal can also be used for the October birthstone color and is white in nature saturated in a milky opalescence that gives it a light romantic quality.

Jewelry Design Trends and Directions

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration

Metals are configured into complex meandering forms that are exclusive and unique.

The word customization takes on a new meaning, as design trends shift to celebrate human “imperfections” and personalized details.

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration_no_normal

Crystal Fancy Stones, Beads and Pearls of various sizes and styles are utilized as all-over caviar coatings in random or geometric layouts for depth and luxurious tactility.

Sculptural jewels juxtaposed with the delicate beauty of a glossy gemstone look, create a dramatic fusion of edgy and graceful.

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration_no_normal_designs

Deconstructed settings and “one-of-a-kind” jewelry designs are increasing due to the personalization demands of the Millennials.

Pieces are being designed to be worn as extensions of the wearer’s body.

FASHION DESIGN DIRECTIONS

The exciting new fusion of minimalism and maximalism explores unexpected pairings, merging the eclectic with the conventionally classic.

Jewelry_trends_2018

Classic minimalist staples such as the white shirt, transforms into a background to re-imagined shapes and suiting.

A major focus will be on voluminous sleeves and loose panels, which will detach themselves from the main garment.

swarovski-inspirations-no-normal-trend

A focus on charming basics, which are well designed and devoted to the user, without neglecting beauty, will take hold.

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 ‚ÄúCrowning Hippie Chic‚ÄĚ hat project uses a technique called a ‚ÄúSurgeon‚Äôs Knot‚ÄĚ, which worth mastering, as it‚Äôs a lot less likely to untie itself. It‚Äôs similar to the regular square knot, but with this difference: When you‚Äôre 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.

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.

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?!!)

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!
