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!

Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel Necklace Design Inspiration wholesale Crystal Beads from Rainbows of Light

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.

DIY Multi-Strand Bracelet Highlighting Peacock Colors Using the New Crystal Rainbow Dark Effect

free-diy-swarovski-crystal-rainbow-dark-bracelet-design-and-instructions

Free Crystal DIY Multi-Strand Bracelet Featuring the New Fall/Winter Swaorvski Innovations. It features gorgeous color combinations in an array of peacock type hues that are especially on trend in the cooler months.

With the cooler Fall weather in the air, it’s been exciting looking forward to all of the new activities Autumn has to offer. Mike, Kashi and I enjoyed one of our favorite traditions, leaf peeping! Here in Colorado there is no shortage of one of my favorites trees, Aspens. We set off early in the morning, driving up through Estes Park and on to a quintessential drive called the Peak to Peak highway. It’s absolutely gorgeous and both Kashi and I have our heads and toungs hanging out the window the whole time 😉

kashi-and-harmony-fall-hiking-2016

Hiking through the woods and seeing all of the rich golden colors, truly makes my heart soar. I always feel at home in nature and it brings more peaceful, loving energy into my heart. It inspires me in many ways and I feel refreshed and alive. It also helps me to feel more creative and I love to pour that refreshing sense of awe and gratitude into making new types of jewelry for not only myself, but gifts for my friends and family.

As we transition into the cooler months, our fashion and jewelry styles change and we begin to embrace the darker tones. With this years’ new coating from Swarovski, the Crystal Rainbow Dark 2X, is such a gorgeous blend of peacock colors, showcasing purple, green and yellow hues set on a black background. It will certainly be a new staple when making crystal jewelry designs that stand out as being unique and captivating.

Swarovski Innovations Fall Winter 2017/18

The Crystal Rainbow Dark effect is almost as if Swarovski took the most popular coating, the Crystal AB and placed it on a black backdrop. It’s quite a brilliant idea and leave it to Swarovski for making it spectacular. It resembles an oil mark splashed onto a Crystal, which is very innovative and fits perfectly with the overall trend of people wanting to express themselves in novel ways and wear truly unique pieces.

Summer Festival Fever

TREND

Summer doesn’t feel like summer without rocking out at a music festival. From family-friendly block parties to boutique “glamping”, if you haven’t got your checklist done, waste no time, ’cause this summer is loaded with options. Go old school with flower tiaras or Woodstock floatiness, or go modern in cyber punk or cowboy looks. But whatever you choose, remember to take your festival staples: denim cut-offs, boho jewelry, funky bag and bandana. It’s time to embrace fringes, tassel jewelry, floppy hats and all the other festival accessories you’ve been waiting all year to wear.

 Don’t forget the three golden rules: customize, customize, customize! So line up the crystals you’ll need for sexy earrings and bracelets; make a colorful tribal trim for your hat; and get a funky festival manicure with your friends. Then just tune in and get that weekend festival vibe!

TECHNIQUES

Stringing: String crystals onto beading wire, thread, cord, or even ribbon, depending on the size of the hole, is a very easy way to make beautiful jewelry or crystal creations to enjoy. With limitless colors available, you can achieve any number of design possibilities.

Knotting: The “Crowning Hippie Chic” hat project uses a technique called a “Surgeon’s Knot”, which worth mastering, as it’s a lot less likely to untie itself. It’s similar to the regular square knot, but with this difference: When you’re doing the first half of the knot, instead of taking one thread around the other thread just once, you wrap around it twice. This tight double-wrap will hold securely while you do the second half of the square knot in the usual way.
