How Is Color Affecting You?

Colors-that-make-us-happy-banner_2

How Are the Subtle Influences of Colors Affecting You???

The psychological and emotional power of color is influential, maybe even more than you think. Specific colors that we are drawn to, echo our personalities, illuminating a deeper story about our true nature, our deepest desires and what we want to communicate to the world.

It’s important to choose colors wisely. Colors have an influence on our thoughts, they stir emotions and even alter our stress levels. As jewelry designers, you can harness the energy of color, impacting ourselves and the people who wear your creations. Come along on a vivid journey of inspiration, as we explore three colors and their intriguingly dynamic qualities!

ROSE WATER OPAL

Keywords: Femininity / Innocence / Sincerity / SophisticationPink_Color_inspiration_Rose_Water_Opal
Rose Water Opal is a soft and gentle hue in a Swarovski Crystal. It signifies the sweetness of youth and suggests a nurturing instinct. This color emphasizes your emotional sensitivity and conveys a sense of calm.

il_340x270.998163892_fatf

If you are drawn to this delicate shade of pink, it suggests that you are loving, generous, benevolent, and receptive to the needs of others. You feel great joy in nurturing others. You may take care of others so intensively that you can neglect yourself, which consequently, you truly appreciate to be nurtured in return.

Swarovski_Crystal_Colors_that_make_us_happy

Gentle pink hues inspires the possibility of a positive outcome. It awakens your feminine and romantic side, as well as unconditional love.

Wearing soft pink colors can help to alleviate feelings of anger and abandonment by invoking a sense of tranquility.

Keywords: Excitement / Love / Passion / Power

Ruby_Red_Color_Combination_Inspiration

Ruby is an emotionally charged color representing strong feelings and a passionate nature. It has the ability to stimulate your senses, energize your confidence, and invoke  tenacious ambition balanced with dignified action.

If you enjoy the color Ruby, you have a delightful zeal and enthusiasm for life, suggesting that you are not afraid to pursue your goals and dreams.

Ruby lovers tend to be hard workers, taking pleasure in physical labor and working with their hands. Wear this hue if you want to take action by invigorating courage, strength, assertiveness and power.

Swarovski_Crystal_Wholesale_Beads_Color_Inspirations_That_make_us_happy_Ruby_Red

If you’re naturally ambitious, a trail blazer and find exploration irresistible, then you are also most likely drawn to Ruby red colors. If you’re wanting to incorporate more of any or all of these qualities, wearing Ruby and red tones will help to inspire you in this direction.

Complimentary Swarovski Crystal Ruby hues include Siam, Light Siam, and Crystal Red Magma.

Jewelry Design Directions

Swarovski_Crystal_Spring_and_Summer_Jewelry_and_Color_Trends_and Inspiration.PNG

“My focus on this piece was to make something for the upper body/neck/shoulder, playing with an exaggerated floral surface and replacing the randomness of nature with the use of both color and shape intertwined, the “hacking” is represented by the manipulation of the base metal, as brass is manipulated into 3D forms” – Andy Farrow Jewelry Designer

Millennials and Gen Z value sustainability as a crucial element in their products and will have an impact on their purchasing decisions. Therefor as beaders and jewelry designers, it’s very important to bring to life the back story of your pieces in order to gain a real connection with what people are drawn to physically and why they will support you morally. 

Swarovski supports this crucial element with their Four Main Principles:

INFLUENCES GUIDING THE SPELL BOUND TREND

MYTHICAL
The use of mystical-inspired symbols highlights the continued rise of the importance of storytelling.

DISTURBING
An ethereal, estranged mood that accepts and embraces the darkness, holding it up to the light for examination and looking to the past as a way forward.

ALLURING
Dark and dangerous, yet with a magical shining allure, the underworld is exposed.

RITUALISTIC
A creeping interest in black magic, voodoo rituals, witchcraft, shamanic medicine and astrology is on the rise.

TRANSCENDING
It is time to explore innovation in forgotten ideas, bring forth design ideas from the past in order to create a unique balance for the future.

sp_ss2018_spellbound_model_textile_0479bg

The underworld is exposed in designs that look as though they have emerged at midnight.

Crystallized surface fabrics add opulence and dimension to lightweight textiles, while drama is added through fairytale-inspired jewelry pieces.

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

kelly-and-adam-16

(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  🙂

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  🙂

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 😉

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  😉

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  😉

swarovski_6533-crystal_silver_night_rhodium-raindrop_pendants

Oh how did you know? Haha…Yep, of course, my fave 6533-33mm Swarovski Crystal Raindrop Pendants in Crystal Silver Night with the Rhodium finish. I told you, I just can’t get enough of them!

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!

kelly-and-sue

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.

kelly-and-adam-5

Even at the alter, Kelly’s doing what she does best…cracking Adam up!

kelly-and-adam-4

Getting married and doing the happy dance!

Sealed with a kiss!

What a gorgeous wedding party with the rich amethyst and plum tones mixed with natural green hues.

kelly-and-adam-9

The setting was stunning!

kelly-and-adam-8

They had a twist on the traditional sit down dinner, opting for smaller intimate tables inside and out on the balcony, where people could sit wherever they wanted. I loved it!

kelly-and-adam-10

Lets kick off this celebration with their first dance…awe!

kelly-and-adam-11

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!

kelly-and-adam-12

How about some more dancing!

fun-times

And the celebration continues….with a fun sparkling sendoff!

kelly-and-adam-14

A little wardrobe and venue change to get this dance party started!

kelly-and-adam-15

Get your glow sticks on & dance like it’s 19-99!

Needless to say, we danced the rest of the night away.

WOW! What a fun wedding & memorable adventure!

Thanks for coming on this little trip with me & hope you had fun too!

Explore the Fall/Winter Jewelry & Fashion Trends “Soul Food”

swarovski-crystal-fall-winter-2017-18-classic-trends-soul-food-style-combinations

SOUL FOOD

Old is the New Black and the back story of how something is made will be very important to consumers moving forward.

Who, What When, Where, Why??

Diving into who made a particular piece of jewelry, what is it made out of, when was it made, how was it made, why was it made – all of these influencing factors will play-out in our purchasing decisions in the future. 

Today we explore the Swarovski Crystal CLASSIC Trend called SOUL FOOD for the Fall and Winter 2017-18 jewelry trends and jewelry design inspirations within the overall theme of “THE NATURE OF US

“A desire for less clutter and a clearer conscience forges a new appreciation of details, materials, craftsmanship and provenance. Consumers are willing to spend more on less, but expect a longer, more meaningful connection with their purchases in return.”(WGSN, Big Ideas AW 2017/18)

The new catchcry for design is “home-spun and humble,” with pieces borrowing colors and details from a range of historical influences and morphing them for the modern mindset.

Designs have a pure and humble feel, with the stripped-back necessity of Scandinavian design infiltrating all segments to highlight the beauty of clean lines.

This new focus on pared-back jewelry designs sees less become even less, but mean even more.

Form follows function as we pay homage to the worker, the laborer, and the farmer, taking direct inspiration from the essential and honest elements of life on the land.

swarovski-crystal-fall-winter-2017-18-classic-trends-soul-food

Jewelry Inspirations within the CLASSIC Trend Will Have the Following Movement

RURAL

Natural, recycled elements combined with radiant crystals create a patchwork ethos, underling the prevailing desire for zero waste.

LABOR

Industrial elements that show affinity with the land and humble beginnings appear across designs, paying homage to new heroes – the farmhand, the laborer, and the worker.

HUMBLE

Jewelry and fashion designs swings between rustic tomboy mindset and humble aesthetic in an update of the gender-neutral and slow-folk trends.

REDUCED

Design elements are stripped back to basics in a pure way, as form follows function and incorporating Swarovski crystals into working elements such as aprons, highlight the simplicity of design and a trend to blend these two aspects together.

PURE

A focus on pure designs taken from nature marries hard-wearing, sustainable materials with earthy crystal colors.

Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Design Inspiration

 fall-winter-jewelry-trends-swarovski-crystals-classic-trends-and-design-inspirations-blog

New materials and color combinations modernize jewelry, making it distinctive both in style and substance.

Jewelry design trends are moving towards pieces that are encrusted  with clusters of modern cut crystals, with mixed-media detailing that creates a homogeneous spirit.

swarovski-crystal-cluster-necklace-with-chain

This Clustered Swarovski Crystal necklace by Bijou Tre’sor Fashion Jewelry Boutique incorporates different styles of chain, a thicker and bulkier piece on top and a fringe style hanging on the bottom creates movement and decadence.

swarovski-crystal-necklace-with-mixed-media-fall-winter-trends

This bold Statement necklace from Style.com incorporates Swarovski Crystal Beads, Pearls, Round Fancy Stones, Triangle Sew-On-Stones mixed with natural stones, combined with different shaped chains along with Gold, Silver and Gun Metal plated chains to create a unique and stylish piece.

Modern and architectural shapes evolve, with intricately set crystals bringing a completely unique aesthetic to rings in oversized portions.

Enlarged profiles, circles  and sculptural constructions highlight the new industrial trend, offering a nod to the simplicity of pared-back design with rustic authenticity.

rose-blush-crystal-bridal-statement-earrings_grande

Bold statement pieces and crystal earrings remain a highlight, like these beautiful Swarovski Crystal dangle earrings in Blush Rose made by The Crystal Rose.

Fall and Winter Fashion Trends and Inspiration (photo credit from Petite Fashionista)

A focus on quality and craft is key in sustainable, hard-wearing designs decorated with Crystals.

The significance of the apron as a practical element taken from life on the land turns into a high-end fashion statement when combined with radiant Swarovski Crystals.

Function Meets Beauty

There will be an increasing trend towards making functional pieces, such as aprons, shoes or work boots, buckles and hats to also be embellished with crystals creating a beautiful utilitarian purpose.

Keep it Natural & Simple with Soft, Relaxed Fabrics

Oversized, heavy knits interwoven with crystal components continue to show our affiliation with all things natural and simple.

Soft, natural and relaxed fabrics will be popular, such as lambswool, felt, and angora  creating an elevated luxurious look and feel. Pockets will be incorporated into many garments, paying homage to the tomboy style.

New Swarovski Lacquer Coatings Express a Sophisticated Shine

The new Swarovski Crystal Lacquer colors perfectly resonate with the current consumer mood, where sophistication shine meets refined sparkle. Highlighting a strong new direction for crystal, the on-trend hues of Ivory Cream and Dark Red convey a sense of timelessness in a subtle, reduced color palette speaking of heritage and authenticity.

As a perfect match to the new Iridescent Red Pearl, these new effects continue the allure of Crystal Lacquer Powder effects and present a completely new complement to the Swarovski color and effect assortment.

Swarovski’s Newest Fall and Winter Pearl Innovation: Crystal Iridescent Red

With people exploring a cultural mash-up of styles and designs, colors no longer simply feature a single hue, but cleverly merge multiple tones together, reflecting a reestablished love of eccentricity and individuality.

The Crystal Iridescent Red Pearl unites seemingly impossible extremes, oscillating between rich reds and airy gray tones.  It serves as a perfect match for the new Crystal Dark Grey and Crystal Dark Red Laqcuer effects, creating very elegant jewelry designs.

Rivoli Crystals are very popular in the seed-beading community, as they bead around the edges of the stone, creating gorgeous jewelry designs with a brilliant center. Lending new edge to a timeless classic, the Oval Rivoli Fancy Stone is bound to be a new essential for affordable jewelry pieces.

Swarovski’s New Framed Flatbacks Crystal Rhinestones

Millennials and Gen Z are reinventing their work-life balance, moving between a rediscovered love of handcraft and continued fascination with the digital world. Easy, comfortable shapes, functionality and clever material mixing are today’s heroes, and the Framed Flat Back captures them all perfectly.

Cabochons meet metal in a fusion of pearl and flat rivet for a new industrial-inspired looks and sci-fi work-wear directions, referencing a new breed of bright young things. The Framed Flatback Rhinestones bring both functionality of a cost- and time saving Hotfix rivet and the elegant look of a timeless piece.

Swarovski Crystal Product Inspiration

Classic Round and Pear shapes reflect a more humble and pared-back approach to embellishment.

Geometric crystal patterns and metal elements create an industrial-inspired style, celebrating a revived love of the rough and rustic.

Iridescent Crystal Pearls and Framed Cabochons alternate with the new shiny Lacquer crystals, highlighting the current desire for reduced shine in authentic and humble design directions.

Swarovski Crystal Color Combinations and Inspiration

This overall color blend inspiration begins with deeper and natural reddish tones, which pair well with both the red and blue purple hues, that compliment organic shades of green, which look very nice with the softer tan and saturated brownish influences.

Rich wine and Bordeaux colors such as Burgundy, Crystal Iridescent Red Pearl, Crystal Antique Pink, Crystal Lilac Shadow and Light Rose Satin, blend exceptionally well with the deeper and lighter reddish purple tones of Amethyst and Light Amethyst.

The Bluer purple tones, such as Provence Lavender, Violet and Tanzanite, add a refreshing infusion of buoyant optimism as we move into the more earth-bound, organic colors.

Erinite is as lovely medium toned greenish color that unites the purples with organic green tones such as Olivine, Light Olivine, Lime and Crystal Iridescen Green Pearl, which all look nice with the very Light hues of Crystal Luminous Green. All of these natural green tones always  match well with the lighter tan colors of Ivory Lacquer, Crystal Golden Shadow,  and Light Colorado Topaz. The darker brown to grayish influences include Crystal Bronze Shade, Colorado Topaz, Smoked Topaz, and Greige.
