I have to admit, it’s taken me awhile to hop on this Tassel Trend bandwagon, but I’m on it now baby and boy does it feel good (ha,ha)!

I have really fallen in love with this jewelry trend!! It’s my little terrific tassel love story 😉

I first started seeing them at the Tucson Gem Show this year in February and my sister Lily asked me if I liked the tassel look. I said, “I don’t know yet, I’m on the fence about them.” Since then, I’ve seen them more and more and have fallen deeper and deeper. I don’t know what my hold up was, because let’s face it, they’ve got the whole package.

They’re fun and whimsical but can also be very elegant. You can replace the thread tassels for beaded or chain tassels and you can incorporate a beautiful focal point using unique larger style Crystals for a piece that really catches your eye. Plus they’re stylish across the board in necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Shall I go on? You can make cute little short tassels, or longer ones for a luxurious look. You can integrate Pearls with Crystals for a decadent design and add your own special touches of color or spiritual significance. See what I’m saying, they’ve just got it all!

Using larger Crystal statement stones before the tassel creates a dramatic focal point. The new Swarovski 5515-18mm Emerald Cut Beads would be a beautiful showpiece. The Swarovski Crystal Fancy Stones would also be fabulous because they can come with settings that have loops on the top, bottom or both, which would be an easy way to connect your necklace and tassel. (Please contact me for setting options).

This lavender color is to die for! I just Love it so much! It reminds me of the Swarovski color Smokey Mauve with its soft and elegant tone. It’s a timeless color that compliments most hues, even the opals such as Pacific Opal and White Opal. Oh I really hope I can carve out some creative tassel time this weekend, I can’t wait to make my own!!

Fall and Winter 2014 Jewelry Trends ~ Focusing on THE DARKNESS OF DESIRE

Glamour Color Assortment Fall Winter 2015-16 trends

Glamour Trend ~ The Darkness of Desire

Discovering new inspiration in the fantastical and the mystical is the focal point for this glamorous Fall 2014 trend  entitled ‘The Darkness of Desire’.  This captivating trend focuses on intuition and mysticism – that richly imagined repository of our deepest emotions, a dark realm of superstition, spells, shadowy secrets and unspoken passions.

Purple flower color inspiration

This theme hinges on our ability to dream, to imagine, to look beyond the illusions of life. Dark passions and desires are as much a part of the everyday as our desires for happiness, peace and well-being.

The theme encompasses the importance of moving away from the robotic society that surrounds us, distancing ourselves from formulaic models, and delving into the creative ether surrounding the design world.

Mystery, intuition and magic are all evoked in this theme.

Our fascination with light evolves into a fascination with darkness –

the depth of shadows and shadowy secrets.

“This is where old-fashion beauty and savoir-faire meet contemporary creativity”

(A+A Design FW 2015-16).

Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Inspiration Pearl and Purple Necklace

Jewelry emulates mysterious, naturally grown forms with tiny intricacies and small oddities.

Crystals sit alongside antique beads, pearls, and patina surfaces to add a touch of glamorous sparkle and tangled metal forms. Decadence and embellishments return – taking us away from the minimalism of the past few seasons, heralding a strong return to opulent ornamentation.

There is almost a regal opulence to designs, representing a somewhat faded nobility for the modern day. Eclectic shapes and precious materials appear to contain a secret story.

Swarovski crystal and chain necklace

Minimalism is abandoned entirely within this jewelry trend and blends both history and emotion. Tarnished finishes recall dark desires and focus on the past – a key trend driver for major design directions.

Pendants and beads combine to create an individualistic style statement. Nostalgia and a focus on heritage are conveyed within the beautiful finish of the stunning crystal patina.

Glamour Color Inspiration

Deep and mysterious colors and coatings such as Jet, Jet Hematite, Crystal Silver Night and Black Patina pair well with the deeper brown tones such as Jet Nut, Dorado 2X, Smoked Topaz and Crystal Bronze Shade. Lighter coatings such as Crystal Silver Shade and Crystal Golden Shadow  transition into light and dark purple tones. The Light Amethyst and Smokey Mauve pairs well with Crystal Antique Pink, and Crystal Paradise Shine who’s multicolored effect brings out tones that compliment Tanzanite, Crystal Lilac Shadow, Amethyst and Blackberry Pearl and Crystal Iridescent Purple Pearl.
