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.

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

Create, Protect, Respect, and Care

Swarovski Crystals are not only stunning, there is a long history of valuing sustainability on every level, from social to environmental responsibility. Swarovski has a longstanding commitment to create products that are both innovative and environmentally conscientious. This appreciation and pioneering spirit distinguishes them apart from their competitors. For over 120 years Swarovski has placed great importance on respecting people and the planet, along with quality craftsmanship to bring the world gorgeous one-of-a-kind crystals that everyone can admire and respect.

Since Swarovski’s inception in 1895, Daniel Swarovski was unwavering in his idealism that business needs to assist communities in flourishing as well as conserving the natural resources we all need to thrive.

Swarovski Crystal Color jewelry and fashion trends

An increase interest in fabric manipulation along with intense high-definition colors with super tactile surfaces such as this Swarovski Pearl blouse, create engineered organic surfaces are at the core for new fashion directions.

tassel_bracelets_inspiration

Versatile Designs Trend  

Irregular patterns, smaller beads mixed with larger crystals, bright color combinations and tassels, create exotic, almost tropical influences.

I certainly hope these fashion and jewelry design trends have inspired you to move forward in innovating fresh creations for your Spring and Summer days ahead!

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 Рall 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

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.

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.

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.

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.
