Explore Swarovski’s “NO NORMAL” Jewelry, Color and Fashion Trends

New Swarovski Crystal Perspectives for Spring Summer innovations

SWAROVSKI’S MEGA TRENDS OF 2018

The New Innovations and Inspirations within Swarovski’s New Perspectives Trends give us a refreshing design palette to ignite our creativity as we look forward to an interesting future in fashion and jewelry expressions.

New Swarovski Crystal Beads Innovations and Trends No Normal

Today we explore one of the four top jewelry and fashion trends entitled

NO NORMAL

The NO NORMAL trend pushes our standard ideas and perceptions away from the norm, into a brave new world, where expressions of oneself are boundless.

This trend embraces lofty ideals of loving yourself and others despite all differences.

We are becoming more open to change, in all ways, including gender, race, religion, and society. This includes transitioning in our beliefs, embracing different perspectives, allowing others to be free to be who they truly are. All of this offers us hope fr a more inclusive future.

Swarovski_Crystal_No_Normal_Jewelry_and_Fashion_Trends

The color pallet highlighted within this jewelry and fashion trend include a new take on the traditionally bold tones. Softening the intensity of some primary colors with a lacquer effect, creates more of a gemstone look and incorporating natural neutral hues such as clear Crystal and White Opal, provides you with designs that can be paired with many different outfits.

Swarovski_No_Normal_Jewelry_Trend

Colors Influencing this NO NORMAL Trend Include:

Swarovski_Crystal_Rose_Peach

Rose Peach

Rose Peach is a soft peach to pink tone that evokes cherry blossoms in spring and English roses in late summer to create a bold, yet subtle romantic, and always elegant quality. The Rose Peach beautifully compliments all skin tone types and is particularly popular in wedding jewelry.

Swarovski_Crystal_Denim_Blue_On_Trend

Denim Blue

Denim Blue is a classic intermediate blue tone with a subtle hint of grey blending nicely with Montana blue and can be used both casually and transition seamlessly for sophisticated evening-wear. This color blends seamlessly with the exceptionally popular denim trend.

 Swarovski_4320_Crystal_Royal_Green_Lacquer_Pearshape_Fancy_Stones_

Crystal Royal Green

Crystal Royal Green Shiny Lacquer is a charming emerald green tone, created to emulate the rich and majestic colors found in an authentic emerald gem. This regal hue is accentuated by a subtle, yet stylish shimmer that captures the graceful and intriguing radiance within a true emerald.

Swarovski_4731_Crystal_Kite_Fancy_Stones

Clear Crystal

Crystal is the April birthstone color representing a clear diamond and its translucent quality creates a subtle shine of prismatic colors that complements all shades of the color spectrum.

Swarovski_4470_Crystal_Dark_Red_Lacquer_Cushion_Fancy_Stones

Crystal Dark Red

Crystal Dark Red Shiny Lacquer is a deep coral like or red wine type of color, similar to the Siam red but not quite as dark. The Shiny Lacquer coating is applied to the top of the crystal, creating a refined shimmer exposing the rich red tones underneath.

Swarovski_Crystal_White_Opal

White Opal

White Opal can also be used for the October birthstone color and is white in nature saturated in a milky opalescence that gives it a light romantic quality.

Jewelry Design Trends and Directions

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration

Metals are configured into complex meandering forms that are exclusive and unique.

The word customization takes on a new meaning, as design trends shift to celebrate human “imperfections” and personalized details.

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration_no_normal

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration_no_normal_designs

Deconstructed settings and “one-of-a-kind” jewelry designs are increasing due to the personalization demands of the Millennials.

Pieces are being designed to be worn as extensions of the wearer’s body.

FASHION DESIGN DIRECTIONS

The exciting new fusion of minimalism and maximalism explores unexpected pairings, merging the eclectic with the conventionally classic.

Jewelry_trends_2018

Classic minimalist staples such as the white shirt, transforms into a background to re-imagined shapes and suiting.

A major focus will be on voluminous sleeves and loose panels, which will detach themselves from the main garment.

Colors That Make Us Happy (Part 2)

Colors-that-make-us-happy-Swarovski-Crystals-wholesale-to-public

We’re constantly exposed to different colors everyday, and our relationship with color affects us more than we may realize. Once we have a deeper understanding of the physiological sway that each distinct color has on us, we can conscientiously design and make jewelry with, wear and incorporate the hues and influences that we wish to draw into our lives.

If we’re lacking a certain emotion or characteristic that we wish to have more of, then we can harness the power of certain colors to enhance that we wish to have & experience more of.

This is also helpful information for jewelry designers who are selling their jewelry to the public. It can be advantageous to let your customers know about how each unique color can help them in their own specific way. It may inspire them to choose a piece of jewelry based on the colors you’ve incorporated and may encourage them to give gifts to friends and family who would benefit from their special attributes.

Come along on a vivid journey of inspiration, as we continue our exploration of three more colors and their intriguingly dynamic qualities!

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.

I hope this Mother’s Day Necklace Design has inspired you to make your Mom or yourself something beautiful to love, admire and enjoy!

Wishing you a day full of LOVE!
