Featured Designer: Judith Glassman Jewelry Designs

Judith Glassman Jewellry Designs

Judith Glassman Jewelry Designs is owned and operated by Judith Glassman, who is a wonderfully sweet and dynamic woman! She has been creating beautifully unique necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and custom designs since the 1960’s. It was love at first creation for her and she has continued to expanded her repertoire over the years, incorporating Swarovski Crystals, semi-precious stones, Lucite, vintage glass and buttons into her one-of-a-kind jewelry designs.

Judith Glassman About Us Page

Among Judith’s talents, she has written many books that crafters and jewelry makers have found to be very insightful. She was receiving so many questions about where she found her supplies, that it inspired her to write her first book entitled New York Guide to Craft Supplies, for Workman Publishing, followed by the New New York Guide to Craft Supplies. Then publishers were asking her to create crafts books, which lead to The National Guide to Craft SuppliesStep by Step Beadcraft, and The Sweater Book. She also found time to write craft articles for The New York Times and New York magazine, as well as designing sweaters for the Good Housekeeping Needlecraft Institute.

She went on to write non-fiction books and articles on many subjects ranging from music, cancer survivors, and computer technology. The need to create jewelry exploded again in 2001. One winter morning a cold necklace led her to add fiber as a jewelry material. For years she sold to private customers and as fate would have it, jewelry became a true business in 2015, when she made the leap to create her own website. Below are just a few representation of her jewelry, but please visit her website to see all of her designs, and hes’s always more than happy to create a custom design just for you!

Gorgeous Necklaces Seek Lovely Necks

“Which piece of clothing do you choose first when you get dressed? I choose a necklace. It’s Act I, Scene I in the Judith Theater. It’s the dramatic moment when the star sweeps on the stage, the focus of attention. The necklace sets the mood, the emotional tone. Then I choose my clothes.”

Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design by Judith Glassman

This beautiful Swarovski Crystal Necklace Features the Faceted Round Disc Pendant

Lovely Lilac

The gorgeous purple and pink hues of the Swarovski effect called Crystal Lilac Shadow, infuse a dynamic color palette to this elegant necklace design that is further entranced by the lighter and darker shades of Crystal Silver Night.

“Emotionally complex. The muted lilac is as soft as a velvet glove, controlling the hard-edge glitter of the Crystal Silver Night. Breathtaking.”

Swarovski Crystal Spike Necklace

This Striking Handmade Necklace Features Swarovski Crystal Spike Beads and Pendants

Jean-Paul Gaultier Spike

Spike beads and jewelry have become very popular over the years, and this exclusive necklace design expresses more of a fancy edgy style, while still being very graceful and refined.

Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for Swarovski, the Spike and Double Spike are edgy and forceful. Wear this necklace when you’re facing disagreement from powerful opponents. Its angles intensify your tenacity and  unwavering determination. It inspires you with persuasive win-win concepts.  Go for it!

Earrings

Earrings are the jewelry pieces most intimate with your face. They light up your eyes and your skin with their sparkle. You choose their length and shape to complement the shape of your face. If your dress or blouse or sweater are full of color and pattern you may decide not to wear a necklace and put on a pair of glamorous earrings instead.

Swarovski Crystal hoop beaded Earrings

These Beaded Hoop Earrlings Feature Swarovski Bicones in Crystal Rose Gold 2X

Golden Hoops

Hoop Earrings are always a stylish look and these beaded Swarovski Crystal hoops will add a splash of glam to your attire. The Rose Gold plating is especially on trend, and its soft metallic hues compliment all types of skin tones, and can be worn during every season.

“If you like hoop earrings, give this variation a try. These hoops are written in the soft glitter of rose gold; your ears and eyes will thank you.”

Swarovski Crystal Dangle Earrings

Beautiful Blue Dangle Earrings Featuring Aquamarine Swarovski Crystals

Swarovski on Chain in Blue

These dainty, elegant pair of Swarovski Crystal earrings highlight the multifaceted Rondelle bead that captures and reflects the light exquisitely. The popular Aquamarine color is a glorious pastel azure-like hue that is quite eye-catching. This three tiered crystal and chain style is beautiful as well as multi functional, looking lovely for special occasions or every-day wear.

The only reaction possible to these magically blue earrings is love at first sight. Bestsellers.”

What’s the Best Thing About Bracelets?

Simple. Like rings, you can see them. You’re eating or texting or walking or driving. Your bracelet catches your eye. You love it and it makes you smile.

Swarovski Crystal bracelet design

This Colorful Bracelet Stands Out with Cloisonne Disc’s and Swarovski Crystal Beads

A Garden on Your Wrist

This bracelet just makes me happy! The wonderful interplay of multiple colors, intricate patterns and a chunky, yet whimsical style, makes me think of a field of flowers on a bright and sunny day. I just want to wrap by wrist around it and become lost in a daydream!

Top quality cloisonne, fine detail, vivid colors. There are only a few of these left. I haven’t found any cloisonne beads that I like as much but stay tuned. I keep looking and have confidence. Hmmm…maybe some delicate filigree with dazzling crystal.”

Bracelet design.png

This Graceful Bracelet Design Integrates Kunzite, Ruby, Rock Crystal, and Seed Pearls

Victorian with Muscle

This alluring bracelet design blends both delicate natural crystals seamlessly with larger asymmetrical stones, for a truly unique expression of beauty.

Most of the ingredients in this bracelet are well-mannered, discreet, old-fashioned. Then there are those kunzite nuggets. Delicate pale pink, to be sure. Irresistibly iridescent. But bigger, irregular shapes. Internal sheets at different depths shimmer when you move your wrist. Powerful. Clearly the leaders of the pack.

If you see something you like or if one of the pieces gives you an idea for something a little different, a little special, a little “you” – please drop Judith a line and she is happy to make your design come true!

Happy Birthday Sheri

Special & Sparkly – There’s Just Nothin’ Like a Handmade Gift!

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration_Wholesale_crystal_beads

Awhile back, I had a delicious and fun brunch with some lovely lady friends (side note – it’s incredibly uplifting when you experience first hand, women supporting women – Yay!). Anyhoo’s… I was wearing a Swarovski Crystal necklace that I handmade myself, and I hear from across the room…I love Harmony’s necklace, I need one just like that in my life!

I was deeply touched that she liked my jewelry style and to be honest, when you hear something so nice about your creative work, you just never forget it! Right then, I was inspired to make her one! Fast forward a couple of months later, because you know, life gets busy…it’s her Birthday and what a perfect time to surprise her with her very own necklace. Oh what fun it is to be able to make gifts for the people in your life that you know will sincerely appreciate them!

Swarovski_Crystal_Heart_Beads_5741-Crystal_Silver_Night

Let the creativity begin…

When you’re making jewelry for someone else, either as a gift, or for resale, I believe the best place to start, is to draw their unique personality into your heart. Then think about who they are, their lifestyle and what they like to wear. Ultimately, all of these aspects come together to reveal what they are drawn to and how they express themselves. This is an excellent foundation to begin creating something distinctive just for them, that you know they will truly love.

This particular friend is a tough woman, with lots of talents, she’s a personal trainer (her muscles don’t lie 🙂 She’s also an esthetician, a wifey, and a mom, so I wanted to make her something that was bold, but not too bold, pretty, but not overly feminine, and something somewhat simple, so that she could wear it with all of the proverbial “hats” that she wears. Here’s what I came up with…

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration

The color pallet that I chose was Grey. I’m sure all of you hip fashionista’s know that grey tones have been wildly popular in the last couple of years. It’s true what they say; Grey is the new black, so I thought this would be a perfect tone to compliment her wardrobe style.

Swarovski_6106-Graphite-Pearshape_Pendants

I started with the 6106-22mm Swarovski Crystal Pearshape Pendant in the new Graphite color. This was the going to be the focal point of the necklace, and I incorporated similarly colored crystal beads to compliment this influence.

I didn’t want this crystal necklace to have a pattern, I wanted it to be asymmetrical to give it a little bit of an edgy look.

Swarovski_5328_Graphite_Xilion_Bicone_Beads

I added the 5328-4mm Swarovski Crystal Bicone Beads in Graphite. I also used the 5328-3mm, 4mm, 6mm & 8mm Swarovski Crystal Bicone Beads in Black Diamond and Black Diamond AB. I utilized the Swarovski Crystal 5000-4mm & 6mm Round Beads in Black Diamond and Black Diamond AB,  as well as the Swarovski Crystal 5000-5mm & 6mm Round Beads in Crystal Satin.

There are three different grey tones that Swarovski offers in their 5810 Round Crystal Pearls and I chose to use the Grey color. It’s a medium tone that works well in this piece, but I also could have also easily used the Dark Grey.

Swarovski_Crystal_Beads_5650_Crystal_Silver_Shade

I integrated one larger bead on one side to give it some depth and distinction, which was the Swarovski Crystal 5650-16mm Cubist Beads in Crystal Silver Shade. I love this style and the light sparkly hues of the Crystal Silver Shade create an extra touch of elegance.

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration_Wholesale_beads

For the final details, I included a few thin silver-toned flower spacers throughout the piece, especially where the crystals met the pearls. This helped to unify the silver toggle clasp with the sprinkles of silver throughout the necklace.

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration_Wholesale_crystals

Overall, I loved how it turned out and more importantly, SHE did too!

Her eyes lit up and she put it on right away! Even though we were camping, hiking and playing games in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, she wore it all day!

Happy Friend = Happy ME 🙂

I’ve been making handmade gifts for friends and family ever since I can remember, and it honestly never gets old! That same fantastic, fuzzy feeling pulses through me as I eagerly watch them open…..and….YAY! Excitement and gratitude are abound!

I hope this inspires you to make your own handmade jewelry as gifts, or resale, because you really can’t ever go wrong by surprising someone with SPARKLES! I’m always happy to help you with any color, style, or design combinations you may be interested in!

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.

New Swarovski Crystal Beads Innovations and Trends No Normal

I hope this new jewelry and fashion trends inspire you to create your hearts desire!

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

How One Creative Christmas Became a Celebration in Giving!

beautiful_christmas_design_elements

Aaaahhh Christmas, how I love thee! You bring joy, cheer and magic into our lives. You warm our hearts and inspire us to give. You remind us that it truly does feel better to give, than to receive and this year especially, I was touched by this enchanting feeling more deeply than ever.

christmas-giving-tree

Kashi’s all smiles next to this homemade giving tree!

We’re lucky enough to be able to walk to the post office each day to ship the packages full of sparkles to all of our wonderful customers. While we were on our way back, we passed by a house in our neighborhood who had created a giving tree. This absolutely warmed my heart! What a fabulous idea! There were hats, gloves, treats and knick-knacks hanging from the tree and more goodies in the box below. “The Giving Tree” was my favorite book growing up and I instantly felt like a kid again!

As we walked home, my heart was full and I was inspired to give more this year!

I thought about what I could do to bring a smile to someones face and infuse a little more joy into their hearts… and then it hit me…

I could give the gift of SPARKLES – SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS OF COURSE!

I actually make and give Swarovski Crystal jewelry and sun catchers beaded to hang in windows every year to friends and family, so I thought, how can I get a little more creative this year?

How about, instead of me making the crystals for my friends (who lived in town), what if we all got together and had a Crystal Creating Celebration?! (P.S. If you mention Crystals and Celebration in the same sentence, you’ve got a winner & people will flock!)

It doesn’t have to be Christmas to do this with your friends. This is a fun and unique idea to celebrate any occasion, Birthdays, Bridal Showers, Bachelorette Parties, Promotions, Graduations, New Homes, Thank You/Appreciations, and/or just because you want to spend time with the ones you care about!

Needless to say…we had a ball!

It can certainly get very busy around this time of year and spending time with the ones you care about (and who care about you) well, there’s really nothing better!

So I gathered up a variety of Swarovski Crystal Beads, Pendants, Pearls, along with tools, and findings from Harmony’s little Crystal work shop ;-)…and away I flew!

It’s a Christmas Crystal Creating Celebration! This amount of fun seems downright criminal!  🙂

I landed at one of my best girlfriends house and just look at all this Christmas cheer!

We set our Christmas Crystal Crafting table up…

With so many beautiful Swarovski sparkles, it’s hard to know where to begin!

I learned that this can actually be quite a daunting task for some people who don’t bead regularly. I suggested a couple of tactics;

Choose Your Favorite Styles

Look at every style you see and choose your absolute favorites. What jumps out to you? Grab it and set it aside to create a pile in front of your own work station. This way, you won’t be so overwhelmed and you can begin with your most beloved.

You may hear things like, they’re just to pretty, they’re ALL my favorite! I hear you ladies! I’m in the same boat! So if that’s the case, then…

Choose your Favorite Styles Within Similar Color Combinations

Think about who you are making your gift for, (or for yourself). Feel their personality, think about where they might want to hang it in their house and what colors would represent them and/or their home the best. Then choose colors that express their personality. This helps tremendously and it’s extra special to think about that person, hold them in your heart while you’re creating something for them that you know they will LOVE!

Helpful Tip: Arrange Your Boxes of Crystal Beads and Pearls in Similar Color Combinations

I store my crafting supplies in these easy to use bins. I find it so helpful to easily move them from room to room (or house to house). Wherever I will be doing my projects for that time, whether it’s outside on a nice sunny day, on the couch watching a movie with my hubby or at my girlfriends house. Wherever I go, my Crystals go with me….do I have a problem?? Nah …we’ll call it passion…I’m just extremely passionate 🙂

Making Swarovski Crystal Sun Catchers

The gorgeous rainbows created by a Swarovski Crystal is what inspired my parents to call our family business “Rainbows of Light” Hang your Swarovski Crystal Pendants or Prisms in the window or car and watch the Rainbows of Light dance about. One of my best girlfriends refers to that special time of day when the sun catches the crystal just right, she calls it “Rainbow Power Hour!”

It brightens her life and makes a sunny day even more special!

This warms my heart beyond measure, to know that every day she is uplifted. Some of my earliest memories is helping my parents make beaded Crystal Sun Catchers. As a family, we would sell these at arts and craft fairs. My absolute favorite memories would be to watch peoples eyes instantly Light Up from all the rainbows!

It’s pure joy and completely infectious!

Here’s my Dad with his Dad at his Crystal booth. Those smiles say it all!

I wanted to shar with you the deep rooted history I have with all of this because this day with my girlfriends, making sun catchers and seeing their faces and hearts light up, brought back so many special memories for me. I felt as though everything was coming full circle. The loving spirit in which my parents started this business, it wasn’t just a business, it was a way of life for all of us. Our whole family nurtured it in different ways. It has been this magical source of energy, always growing, evolving and above all, continually giving. This was the powerful energy that was instantly renewed in me that day.

As we continued to create, the hours flew by, filling the house and our hearts with laughter and friendship. Before we knew it, her hubby came home and brought a few friends home with him. One girl, who I met for the first time, saw our craft table and was naturally intrigued. We said, come join us! She said, no that’s OK I’ve never beaded before so I’ll just sit a watch you. Well… I told you it’s infectious, the crystals are just too magnetic because literally not 5 minutes passed before she said , wow this looks like so much fun, I would LOVE to try and make one! My heart leapt for joy (again)

Then I hear a hubby say “I wish we were having as much fun as you ladies are!” Can you say, music to my ears!

A Newbie to Beading, and Now She’s a Lifer!

Here’s the Sun Catcher that she made and I always love to see how unique everyone’s creative is. I would have never thought to combine these colors together and it’s beautiful! She kept holding it in the light and each time her smile would grow. As her smile grew, my my heart grew!

She used various Swarovski Crystal Beads in Erinite, Emerald, Jet and Crystal Golden Shadow. The larger Crystals include the 5556 Galactic Beads in Crystal Golden Shadow and Crystal Copper. The 5650-16mm Cubist Bead, along with many 5810 6mm  and 8mm Swarovski Pearls in Brown and Bronze. She ended it very creatively by using the 3231-28mm two hole Oval Sew On Stone in Emerald attached to the 6620-40mm Avant Garde Pendant in Crystal Copper.

She showed her hubby and it was so cute to see how much he lit up too! (Yes, even the toughest of men can enjoy beautiful sparkles). I could hear them saying, WOW where should we hang it? It would look great in our kitchen window…or maybe in our dinning room with all the natural light. My girlfriends’ hubby chimes in and says, we have one hanging in our kitchen window and I love it because every morning I come down and see all the rainbows shining in the room and it’s a great way to start the day. I was actually shocked, I’ll reiterate…this was a GROWN MAN who loves football, grilling out and all kinds of manly things, saying this! I LOVED it!

New Sparkling Swarovski Designs

A very popular home, jewelry and fashion trend is the color gray. They say, gray is the new black. This is a sun catcher another friend made with gray tones such as Swarovski  Crystal Silver Shade and Black Diamond crystals, along with Light Grey, Platinum and she threw in a few Brown Pearls for a little contrast. It turned out beautifully!

The larger stones include the Swarovski Crystal 5523-12mm Cosmic Beads, the 5590-10mm wing Bead, 5650-16mm Cubist Bead, 5328-4mm Xilion Bicone Beads and the large Crystal at the bottom is the 6680-40mm Cosmic Pendant in Crystal Silver Shade. I used a Clear Crystal Rhodium Head Pin to put through the hole at the top then looped it around to hold in place. This gave it a gorgeous finishing touch.

Swarovski Pearls are an excellent product to bring to your Crystal Creating Party because of so many reasons. They are beautiful, their pearlescent coating is extremely durable, they have a crystal center that gives them weight, there are a huge variety of color options and they are (whisper this next word) inexpensive! (SSSHHH, that’s our little secret. They’ll never know)

Giving Truly is Receiving!

Here is the sun catcher that my friend made for her Mom. It was so long that the actual Prism at the bottom was cut off, but I’m sure you can imagine the beauty  🙂 Her Mom collects Swarovski Ornaments and she had so much fun giving it to her the next week she visited. Her Mom Absolutely LOVED it!

Here is one of the nicest thank you’s I’ve ever received…

“I just wanted you to know the joy you have spread. My mom pretty much peed her pants with the gift of sparkles. She keeps sending me texts to show how pretty it is throughout the day. Here’s a pic for you. Thank you again for this precious gift of time and generosity with these amazing crystals. You da best! Much Love!”

Doesn’t this just warm your heart!

When you give from your heart, people feel it and appreciate the time and energy you put into making something special just for them. It doesn’t have to be much, it just needs to come from your heart.

I didn’t want, or expect anything in return because I had already been given the gift of giving, but look at this beautiful platter that magically appeared on my doorstep the next day…

How sweet is this?! She knows me too well, I just LOVE it so much!

I found a special place for it in my kitchen and now her gift is the one that brightens my day!

The gift of genuine friendships, is certainly a gift that keeps on giving!

This Christmas I wanted to give gifts with a lasting nature. Gifts that warm your heart and remind us of special times. Gifts that keep on giving. In turn, I received some of the greatest gifts of all. The warm and delightful gift of giving.
