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.

Swarovski_5741_Crystal_Heart_Beads_Blush_Rose

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  🙂

Swarovski_Pearls_5810_Crystal_Pearls_Platinum

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.

Swarovski_5058_Baroque_Beads_Crystal_Golden_Shadow

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.

Wishing you a day full of LOVE!

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!

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!

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!

How about some more dancing!

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!

Fall and Winter Jewelry Trends Highlighting THE ART OF EXPRESSION

 Swarovski Crystal Design

Fall and Winter Jewelry Trends

This Fall and Winter’s New Swarovski Innovations reveal a desire to connect with something very unique and nonconforming. The overall trend is to embrace innovative ideas, to branch out and discover new design ideas, textures and colors inspired by your own special gift for creativity!

The idea is to harness your emotional connectivity to the world around you and introduce the unexpected. Classic color combinations, such as grey and neutral tones can be infused with splashes of vibrant colors, such as pinks, blues or purple tones to revitalize them with a spark of dynamic energy.

There are four new Swarovski themes and corresponding crystal innovations for this Fall and Winter season and I will focus on the Classic Theme today.

THE ART OF EXPRESSION (Classic Theme)

Swarovski_Crystal_Dipped_in_Lace_Necklace_design_and_Instructions

A new freedom from strict precision can be seen in enthusiastic splashes of vibrant color and combinations of diverse materials such as lace, faux leathers, satins and recycled textiles, that look even more extravagant when pared with crystals.

This Swarovski crystal necklace “Dipped in Lace” design, bestows a whimsical and day-dreamy expression with cheerful and vivacious combinations of frothy white lace, Crystal Beads, Pearls and Pendants. This design includes instructions on how to create this eclectic assortment of textures and colors, one whose romantic and playful design is a creative inspiration!

Sparkling_Frida_Swarovski_crystal_necklace_design_and_instructions

This colorful and eclectic “Sparkling Frida” necklace is a throwback to the signature style of the famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. This energetic necklace is spirited and multi-dimensional, incorporating mixed metals such as chains, Crystal Double-Spike Beads, Pearls, BeCharmed Beads and Flatbacks, which all come together in one gypsy-like design that inspires us to go wild!

 Swarovski Thread Ring

This Fall and Winter 2014-15 Jewelry trends are influenced by an Eighties theme with quirky, versatile and streamlined shapes highlighted by shimmering metallics. With its one or two hole option, the new Pavé Thread Ring bead adds everyday opulence and creative versatility to all types of designs.

Swarovski_Crystal_Fine_Mesh

Swarovski Crystal Fine Mesh is an exciting new product that made its debut on the Atelier Versace Fall/Winter 2014 Haute Couture catwalk in Paris. As an evolution of the original Crystal Mesh launched by Swarovski in 1993, it uses brilliant small XILION chatons to create the perfect gently flowing material for all-over second-skin shine, sparkling evening-wear and high-glamour looks.

Swarovski Jewelry Design Inspiration

One of the most exciting, fun and rewarding things to do is to embark on a journey of new discovery and creativity through design. This season focuses on self expression and embracing new perspectives. Feel free to explore new ideas, push boundaries and make your design dreams come true!
