Love in Every Bead ~ A Special Mother’s Day Necklace Design Inspiration!

Happy Mothers Day Love

Here’s one of my most cherished pictures of my wonderful Mom and I

Mother’s Day is that extra special time to reflect on the love and caring nature Mother’s give to their children. I feel incredibly lucky to have a mother who continues to be there for me and love me unconditionally. It’s the absolute greatest gift in the world and I’m always humbled by the power of love.

Happy-Mothers-Day-Tag-With-Flowers

This beautiful quote by Yogananda expresses the divine quality of a Mother’s love;

“The Mother’s love is not given to us to spoil us with indulgence, but to soften our hearts, that we may in turn soften others with kindness.”

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, I made a special Swarovski Crystal and Pearl necklace for my Mom to honor and celebrate everything she means to me. She is always so sweet in loving everything I make her.

For Easter, I made her a sparkling Swarovski Crystal bracelet with spring tones and she wore it for a week straight. My Dad said she wore it on their nature walks and she would say “Harmony’s coming on the walk with us“. That literally melted my heart! I just thought that was the absolute sweetest! I pour my heart and energy into making jewelry for my friends and family and for my Mom to feel closer to me through the jewelry I make her, is incredibly touching.

Here’s the Swarovski Crystal and Pearl tassel necklace I made this Mother’s Day. I hope this design inspires you to make something extra special for your Mom, or if you’re a Mom who loves to make jewelry, it’s time to treat yo’ self!

Stylish Trend Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel Necklace

I wanted to make a soft and elegant necklace that had a touch of whimsical style. I Looooved how it turned out, I made one for myself too  🙂

The style 5810 wholesale Swarovski Pearls that I used were in the color Platinum. Platinum is a wonderful neutral tone that goes with just about everything and even better, you can pair it with Gold or Silver tones and it looks beautiful with both!

You can even mix the goldish hues of the Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow, with the light silver tones of Crystal Silver Shade together and it looks dreamy!

My Mom wears gold, so I made her’s with gold accents and mine with silver accents.

I mostly used the 5810-6mm and 8mm sized Swarovski Pearls and the 3mm and 4mm in one area for a tiny graduation up from the Crystal beads.

I especially wanted to incorporate the new Swarovski stylish 5058 Baroque Bead for it’s elegant and timeless shape. I used the 5058-10mm and 14mm Crystal Golden Shadow Baroque Beads as highlights, surrounded by style 5000-6mm and 8mm Round Beads and 5328-4mm and 6mm Bicone Beads all in the matching Crystal Golden Shadow effect.

I added some little gold flower elements to accentuated the Pearls and Crystals, which complimented the gold tones in the Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow beautifully.

I finished off the necklace with a gold clasp and a tassel that matched the Platinum Pearl color perfectly! I found the tassel at my local Jo-Ann Fabric and craft stores not in the jewelry section, but in the fabric tassel section.

The last Crystal that I added at the bottom, for a nice touch of sparkle, was the 6871-28mm Swarovski Crystal Buddha Pendant in Crystal Silver Shade.

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.

Swarovski Crystal Boho Bangle Instructions

STEP 1: Tie a knot on the bangle with the thread. Slide Swarovski Bead art. 5000 6mm Crystal Beads onto it using a beading needle. Wrap the thread around the bangle and back through the Swarovski bead and then onto the other bangle. Repeat this procedure until the bead is stabilized. Repeat the entire step to insert all the Swarovski 5000 beads onto the bangle.

STEP 2: Insert Swarovski Bead art. 5728 12mm Crystal Metallic Sunshine onto the headpin. Turn a loop at the end and twist the wire twice around the base of the loop. Repeat once more using the Swarovski Crystal Pearl art. 5860.

STEP 3: Insert the tassels onto the split rings.

STEP 4: Insert Swarovski Crystal Pearl, Swarovski Bead and the tassel to the bangle using 5mm jump rings. Attach the rest of the Swarovski Crystals on the material list to the other bangle as shown in our illustrations with this step.
