How Are the Subtle Influences of Colors Affecting You???

The psychological and emotional power of color is influential, maybe even more than you think. Specific colors that we are drawn to, echo our personalities, illuminating a deeper story about our true nature, our deepest desires and what we want to communicate to the world.

It’s important to choose colors wisely. Colors have an influence on our thoughts, they stir emotions and even alter our stress levels. As jewelry designers, you can harness the energy of color, impacting ourselves and the people who wear your creations. Come along on a vivid journey of inspiration, as we explore three colors and their intriguingly dynamic qualities!

ROSE WATER OPAL

Keywords: Femininity / Innocence / Sincerity / SophisticationPink_Color_inspiration_Rose_Water_Opal
Rose Water Opal is a soft and gentle hue in a Swarovski Crystal. It signifies the sweetness of youth and suggests a nurturing instinct. This color emphasizes your emotional sensitivity and conveys a sense of calm.

A Useful & Sparkling DIY Customized Gift Inspiration!

When dreams come true, it’s fun to celebrate with sparkles & smiles!

Recently my friend graduated culinary school and she now has the wonderful opportunity to take her skills to the gorgeous wonders of Spain! She’ll be living there for a few months, training under a 5 star chef. With incredible hard work and determination, her dreams are really and truly, coming to fruition. I couldn’t be happier for her!

Fiesta

She threw a fabulous tapas themed fiesta to celebrate and I wanted to give her something fun, special and sparkly (of course) to commemorate her BIG accomplishment! Here’s what I made her….

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_4

A customized sparkling apron featuring Swarovski Crystal Rhinestone Flatbacks!

I found a colorful apron from World Market. I just swoon over everything in that darn store, so I had to go in with a mission and not stray, because if I did, I would have been tempted to take home one of everything. Mission successfully completed!

I imagine aprons can take a beating with all that is going on in the kitchen and I wanted to be sure the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks would stay secure and last a very long time. In order to do this, I glued each crystal using E6000 glue.

Swarovski_Crystal_2088_Flatback_rhinestone_crystals_wholesale

I used the Swarovski Crystal 2088-12ss (~3mm) Clear Crystal Flatbacks

Crystal_Katana

I also used my handy-dandy Flatback Rhinestone tool, the Crystal Katana! This helps to pick up the stones, place them exactly where I want them and secure them in place. I couldn’t do this project with out it! That’s GOLD Jerry… GOLD! (haha…if you’re a long-time Seinfeld fan like myself, you’ll appreciate that reference 😉

How to glue crystals to clothing instructions 1

I arranged the Swarovski Crystals in little flower formations, with different quantities in each floret, randomly on the belt of the apron. I wanted to compliment the flower pattern on the apron, as well as accentuating hints of sparkle.

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_2

It’s simple and sweet, and complimented her style beautifully!

Thankfully, she Loved it! She put it on and wore it around, showing all her friends, which warmed my heart & was very sweet of her!

If you’re thinking of a little gift for someone in your life, keep in mind that it doesn’t need to be much, but it’s always much more appreciated when you add a personal touch. When you put a little extra time and effort into making something handmade from your heart, it demonstrates how much you care, which is touching in and of itself.

Jewelry Design Directions

Swarovski_Crystal_Spring_and_Summer_Jewelry_and_Color_Trends_and Inspiration.PNG

“My focus on this piece was to make something for the upper body/neck/shoulder, playing with an exaggerated floral surface and replacing the randomness of nature with the use of both color and shape intertwined, the “hacking” is represented by the manipulation of the base metal, as brass is manipulated into 3D forms” – Andy Farrow Jewelry Designer

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_and_Color_Trends

With our world becoming increasingly digital, we find ourselves craving a balancing effect, one that increases a deeper connection to our natural world.

Millennials and Gen Z value sustainability as a crucial element in their products and will have an impact on their purchasing decisions. Therefor as beaders and jewelry designers, it’s very important to bring to life the back story of your pieces in order to gain a real connection with what people are drawn to physically and why they will support you morally. 

Swarovski supports this crucial element with their Four Main Principles:

Swarovski_Sustainability-in-Business

Create, Protect, Respect, and Care

Swarovski Crystals are not only stunning, there is a long history of valuing sustainability on every level, from social to environmental responsibility. Swarovski has a longstanding commitment to create products that are both innovative and environmentally conscientious. This appreciation and pioneering spirit distinguishes them apart from their competitors. For over 120 years Swarovski has placed great importance on respecting people and the planet, along with quality craftsmanship to bring the world gorgeous one-of-a-kind crystals that everyone can admire and respect.

Since Swarovski’s inception in 1895, Daniel Swarovski was unwavering in his idealism that business needs to assist communities in flourishing as well as conserving the natural resources we all need to thrive.

Swarovski Crystal Color jewelry and fashion trends

An increase interest in fabric manipulation along with intense high-definition colors with super tactile surfaces such as this Swarovski Pearl blouse, create engineered organic surfaces are at the core for new fashion directions.

tassel_bracelets_inspiration

Versatile Designs Trend  

Irregular patterns, smaller beads mixed with larger crystals, bright color combinations and tassels, create exotic, almost tropical influences.

I certainly hope these fashion and jewelry design trends have inspired you to move forward in innovating fresh creations for your Spring and Summer days ahead!
