THE ADVENT OF VISIONARY CULTURE Modern Fashion Jewelry – Design Inspiration

The rise of global culture, the emergence of the global citizen, and a strong anti-appropriation ethic sees creative formats and completely new contexts being achieved in design. In an effort to make sense of our current polarizing circumstances, tales from the past are married with modern formats, blended together to construct a new reality.

ARTIFICIAL BRIGHTS STREAMED DIRECT FROM DIGITAL FILTERS ARE GROUNDED WITH PRIMARY EARTH HUES AND EXAGGERATED CRYSTAL CUTS AND FORMS TO PREPARE  FOR A MIXED-REALITY FUTURE.

IT IS TIME TO TRANSFORM OURSELVES. ELEMENTS OF A PRIMITIVE PAST COMBINE WITH OTHERWORLDLY EFFECTS TO CREATE A NEW REALITY. BORROWING FROM BOTH THE DIGITAL AND THE DOWN-TO-EARTH, DESIGN WIDENS ITS FOCUS TO CELEBRATE CULTURAL HERITAGE, SPACE-AGE FORMATS AND EXOTIC ANCIENT TALES. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT IN THIS MASH-UP OF DIRECTIONS, WHERE THE ESCAPISM AND SELF-EXPRESSION OFFERED BY THE CYBER AGE IS BROUGHT BACK TO BASICS WITH THE BEAUTY OF THE ARCHAIC, CREATING DESIGNS INFUSED WITH INDIGENOUS WISDOM AND THE OPTIMISM OF A NEW GENERATION.

SLEEK SHIMMER Trend

THE ART OF TIMELESS SIMPLICITY Fine Jewelry Imitation/ Modern Fashion Jewelry – Design Inspiration

swarovski-ss21-trendcolors-crystals-inspirations-sleek-shimmer.jpg

The art of reducing and simplifying, recycling and upcycling with deeper feeling and commitment has become standard for many collections. The appeal of paring down is central to our push toward decluttering our lives and freeing our minds in the quest for wellness and less stress. In our bid to reduce and rid our lives of excess we will reach for bespoke products and spaces that feel unique, we will search out design that has soul, and we will covet the alluring appeal of classic shapes with feeling and commitment. 

SLEEK SHIMMER TREND INFLUENCES

IN A BID TO REDUCE AND RID OUR LIVES OF EXCESS, WE WILL REACH FOR BESPOKE PRODUCTS AND SPACES THAT FEEL UNIQUE. WE WILL SEARCH OUT DESIGN THAT HAS SOUL.

The buzz around the purple family continues as this sophisticated colorway continues to appeal to the “Insta-worthy” mindset. In a new glamorous design aesthetic – one with digital in mind and history at its core – traditional colors and concepts are re-imagined and reworked in a new narrative.

EXTRAVAGANT BRILLIANCE TREND INFLUENCES
IT IS TIME TO EXPLORE IMAGINARY WORLDS. BEAUTIFULLY ECLECTIC, INSPIRED BY THE DRAMATIC, THE WEIRD AND THE WONDERFUL, THIS RADIANT THEME ROMANTICIZES THE RICHNESS OF TIME. RE-IMAGINING HISTORICAL CONCEPTS TO CREATE A NEW NARRATIVE, CULTURES AND TRADITIONS ARE UP-ENDED AND STEEPED IN FANTASY.

Watch this video highlighting the new Swarovski Crystal Fall and Winter styles, colors, trends & more!

Rainbows of Light is elated to introduce Swarovski’s new crystal innovations for Fall/Winter 2020/21! The theme for this Swarovski launch is Love ALL, a reflection on the desire to give life more meaning and optimism and to prioritize how we feel over what we have.

The need for emotional connection has deepened our desire for the authentic and the real. This attitude is echoed in Fall/Winter 2020/21’s aptly-named theme, Love All, and summed up in four moods: Then & Now explores the sensuous sophistication of reworked Forties-inspired vintage; Extreme & Casual embraces a new relaxed extravagance; Modern & Romantic unveils the charm of tender elegance;and Wild & Chic unlocks the power of untamed femininity. All for the love of crystal.

spr-launch-fw20-21-online-banner-heart-1280x1280px-final-1-.jpgSwarovski’s theme for Fall/Winter 2020/21 Love All, embraces romantic styles with symbols that have a profound and enduring significance in our lives. The new Swarovski crystal 6432 Heart Cut Pendant embodies this passionate intention, conveying a universal heart-felt value. This gemstone-inspired new crystal Heart has a hole at the top to make earrings and pendants and feature a mirid of multilayered facets providing a virtual kaleidoscope display of sparkle. Available in three sizes, fifteen colors, and six effects for your designing pleasure. This complex multidimensional quality leads the return to sensuous sophistication.

NEW SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL PEARL COLORS MULBERRY PINK AND ELDERBERRY

spr-launch-fw20-21-online-banner-berry-960x1360px-final-1-.jpgThe newest Swarovski crystal pearl color Mulberry Pink is muted rosy pink tone whose allure was inspired by the wild outdoors and nature’s bounty. It’s splendid raspberry undertones and gentle rose hues strengthen the value of incorporating organic influences in your jewelry designs. Colors that reflect a natural appearance help to balance out the effects of the digital world, nurturing our inherent love for Mother Nature.

Elderberry is the newest Swarovski crystal pearl color for your jewelry designs and creative endeavors. This medium to deep purple toned Swarovski Pearl has a subdued richness paying homage to organic Elderberries found in nature. Integrating natural looking elements into your jewelry designs is a beautiful way to convey your love for the natural environment.

NEW SWAROVSKI RICE PEARL

swarovski-5824-4mm-crystal-elderberry-rice-shape-crystal-pearls-1-.jpg

A brand-new style of Pearl bead has been developed by Swarovski called the Rice Pearl and it is a fantastic addition to the crystal Pearl family, as it brings you more design choices for your jewelry, accessories and apparel. The 5824 Swarovski Rice Pearl is a splendid response to a more natural aesthetic and is ideal for making intricate jewelry and accessory designs.

NEW SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL EFFECTS ROSE PEACH SHIMMER & ROSE PEACH SHIMMER 2X

Rose Peach Shimmer

Rose Peach Shimmer 2X

swarovski-5328-3mm-rose-peach-shimmer-2x-bicone-beads-1-.jpg

The Shimmer coating is a new Swarovski Crystal Effect that was inspired by the famous and extremely popular Aurora Borealis (AB) coating, but is a more delicate sparkle. The difference between the two Effects is that the AB coating refracts intense yellow, pink, and blue sparkles and can sometimes overpower the original color underneath. The Shimmer coating is a softer, less intense yellows and blues than the AB coating, creating a subtle and elegant shimmering appearance.

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 😉

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.

Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design Inspiration Authorized Reseller wholesale beads Growing Crystal Pendant

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.

Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design Inspiration Authorized Reseller wholesale beads Growing Crystal Pendants 5

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.

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.

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.

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

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_and_Color_Trends

With our world becoming increasingly digital, we find ourselves craving a balancing effect, one that increases a deeper connection to our natural world.

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:

Swarovski_Sustainability-in-Business

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.

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.

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.
