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 😉

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.

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.
