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 – all 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

 fall-winter-jewelry-trends-swarovski-crystals-classic-trends-and-design-inspirations-blog

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.

swarovski-crystal-necklace-with-mixed-media-fall-winter-trends

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.

Bold statement pieces and crystal earrings remain a highlight, like these beautiful Swarovski Crystal dangle earrings in Blush Rose made by The Crystal Rose.

Fall and Winter Fashion Trends and Inspiration (photo credit from Petite Fashionista)

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.

Rivoli Crystals are very popular in the seed-beading community, as they bead around the edges of the stone, creating gorgeous jewelry designs with a brilliant center. Lending new edge to a timeless classic, the Oval Rivoli Fancy Stone is bound to be a new essential for affordable jewelry pieces.

Swarovski’s New Framed Flatbacks Crystal Rhinestones

Millennials and Gen Z are reinventing their work-life balance, moving between a rediscovered love of handcraft and continued fascination with the digital world. Easy, comfortable shapes, functionality and clever material mixing are today’s heroes, and the Framed Flat Back captures them all perfectly.

Cabochons meet metal in a fusion of pearl and flat rivet for a new industrial-inspired looks and sci-fi work-wear directions, referencing a new breed of bright young things. The Framed Flatback Rhinestones bring both functionality of a cost- and time saving Hotfix rivet and the elegant look of a timeless piece.

swarovski-crystal-fall-winter-2017-18-classic-trends-soul-food-color-combinations

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.

See Why This Sparkling Halloween Mask is the Cat’s Meow!

happy-halloween

It’s that fun time of year where rich fall colors delight our senses, pumpkins line the doorsteps and that eerie feeling of something spooky is just around the corner…. HALLOWEEN!

Halloween will be here before you know it, as as we thoroughly enjoy our spiced lattes (down to the last delicious drop), it’s fun to ponder… what shall I be this year?

besties

I haven’t decided what I’ll be this year, but my best friend Lauren (here we are having a ball at her wedding) is going as a kitty cat and asked me to add some Swarovski Crystals to her cat mask. Well, she certainly came to the the right person for that job (I’ve got crystals coming outta my ears, no not literally, that would just be ridiculous  😉 BUT, I do leave a trail of sparkles everywhere I go (I swear, every week the vacuum consumes more crystals than Kashi hair!)…so honestly, how can a bestie refuse?

besties-forever

I had a lot of fun embellishing her cat mask with Swarovski Crystal Flat back Rhinestones and I thought it would be fun to show you what I created and give you the step by step instructions on how to create something similar for yourself, or for your bestie  🙂

free-diy-diresctions-on-adding-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask-design-and-instructions

Steps to Embellish Your Halloween Mask with Swarovski Crystals

Here is what you will need to add Swarovski Crystals to a furry mask. (please note: the mask will need to be furry to be able to affix the Hot Fix Rhinestones, if it is not furry, then you will need to glue them on using an epoxy glue, my favorite being the E6000 glue). Below are the Crystal shapes that I used, but there are numerous different styles of Swarovski Flat backs to choose from to get your creative juices flowing.

Swarovski Crystal Leaf Flat Back Rhinestones 2797-8mm Crystal Hot Fix

Swarovski Crystal Bow Tie Flat Back Rhinestone 2858-12mm Bowtie Crystal Hot Fix

Supplies

1 Furry Cat Mask (I couldn’t find the exact one she sent me, but here are some options to choose from)

Crystal Katana Tool

Bejewler Pro Hot Fix Tool

free-diy-diresctions-on-adding-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask

I started with a plain black cat mask (I guess I was so excited to start adding the Swarovski crystals, that I forgot to take a picture of the plain mask, but hey, I’m sure you can use your wild imagination  😉

Starting with one side of the top of the eye, I used the crystal Katana to pick up the crystals and place them where I wanted them (I have found that this method is MUCH easier than using tweezers). Next, I used the Bejewler Hot Fix Tool to secure the crystals in place which only take a few seconds for each stone.

One great tip that I have found to work very well, is to use one size smaller tip on the bejewler tool than your stones, this way the hot tip won’t come into contact with the underside of your project, so that there is no way it can inadvertently heat up or ruin any part of your project. Pass that tip along to your Bejewler friends – they’ll love ya for it!

free-diy-diresctions-on-gluing-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask

Before you know it, your plain black cat mask is looking like the Cat’s Meow!

I decided my bestie’s kitty mask just had to be as regal as she is, so I added a little crown on the top, accentuating the bottom with the beautiful shaped Leaf Flatback.

Last but certainly not least, for the final touch, I added the Bow Tie Flatback as her adorable little noes accent. I think it’s as cute as a button!

free-diy-diresctions-on-embellishing-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask

So there you have it, the final embellished kitty mask and it only took a couple of hours. I sent it off to Lauren, she absolutely LOVED it and can’t wait to show it off!

I hope this project inspires you to create something fabulous & sparkly this Halloween! Please post and share pictures with me of you, your friends’ or kiddos Halloween costumes this year, I would LOVE to see them!

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.

6106 Pear-shaped Pendant

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.
