FUTURISTIC REFLECTIONS Trend

THE ADVENT OF VISIONARY CULTURE Modern Fashion Jewelry – Design Inspiration

swarovski-ss21-trendcolors-crystals-inspirations-futuristic-reflections.jpg

The rise of global culture, the emergence of the global citizen, and a strong anti-appropriation ethic sees creative formats and completely new contexts being achieved in design. In an effort to make sense of our current polarizing circumstances, tales from the past are married with modern formats, blended together to construct a new reality.

ARTIFICIAL BRIGHTS STREAMED DIRECT FROM DIGITAL FILTERS ARE GROUNDED WITH PRIMARY EARTH HUES AND EXAGGERATED CRYSTAL CUTS AND FORMS TO PREPARE  FOR A MIXED-REALITY FUTURE.

swarovski-color-trends-ss21-trend-assortment-futuristicreflection.jpg

IT IS TIME TO TRANSFORM OURSELVES. ELEMENTS OF A PRIMITIVE PAST COMBINE WITH OTHERWORLDLY EFFECTS TO CREATE A NEW REALITY. BORROWING FROM BOTH THE DIGITAL AND THE DOWN-TO-EARTH, DESIGN WIDENS ITS FOCUS TO CELEBRATE CULTURAL HERITAGE, SPACE-AGE FORMATS AND EXOTIC ANCIENT TALES. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT IN THIS MASH-UP OF DIRECTIONS, WHERE THE ESCAPISM AND SELF-EXPRESSION OFFERED BY THE CYBER AGE IS BROUGHT BACK TO BASICS WITH THE BEAUTY OF THE ARCHAIC, CREATING DESIGNS INFUSED WITH INDIGENOUS WISDOM AND THE OPTIMISM OF A NEW GENERATION.

SLEEK SHIMMER Trend

THE ART OF TIMELESS SIMPLICITY Fine Jewelry Imitation/ Modern Fashion Jewelry – Design Inspiration

swarovski-ss21-trendcolors-crystals-inspirations-sleek-shimmer.jpg

The art of reducing and simplifying, recycling and upcycling with deeper feeling and commitment has become standard for many collections. The appeal of paring down is central to our push toward decluttering our lives and freeing our minds in the quest for wellness and less stress. In our bid to reduce and rid our lives of excess we will reach for bespoke products and spaces that feel unique, we will search out design that has soul, and we will covet the alluring appeal of classic shapes with feeling and commitment. 

SLEEK SHIMMER TREND INFLUENCES
IT IS TIME TO JUST STAND STILL. A WARMER, MORE GENTLE FORM OF MINIMALISM OCCURS AS WE EXPLORE THEMES OF LONGEVITY, VERSATILITY AND FLEXIBILITY IN DESIGNS THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME. DESIRING A DEEPER FORM OF EMOTIONAL CONNECTION, WE AIM FOR ITEMS THAT GROW BETTER WITH AGE, TREASURING VARIATIONS IN COLOR AND SURFACE AS PART OF THEIR DISTINCTIVE APPEAL. IN A BID TO REDUCE AND RID OUR LIVES OF EXCESS, WE WILL REACH FOR BESPOKE PRODUCTS AND SPACES THAT FEEL UNIQUE. WE WILL SEARCH OUT DESIGN THAT HAS SOUL.

The buzz around the purple family continues as this sophisticated colorway continues to appeal to the “Insta-worthy” mindset. In a new glamorous design aesthetic – one with digital in mind and history at its core – traditional colors and concepts are re-imagined and reworked in a new narrative.

EXTRAVAGANT BRILLIANCE TREND INFLUENCES

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….

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.

2 DIY Tips You Need to Know When Embellishing Your Winter Hat with Swarovski Crystals!

free-swarovski-crystal-fashion-design-winter-cap-crystalized

Free DIY Design on Embellishing Your Winter Hat with Swarovski Crystals 

For those of you enjoy winter outdoor adventures, this cozy Après Ski hat DIY design inspiration is chic as well as warm. Simply glue or sew Swarovski Crystal Pearls and Flat Back Hotfix Rhinestones around the turn-up, and you’ll sparkle on the slopes!

It doesn’t matter whether you ski (or snowboard) like an Olympian, flop around like a snow bunny, or stick strictly to “meet me by the fire” for fun social encounters, you’ll still need to defrost with cozy knits that are chic and practical.

Winter pom-pom hats are very popular these days to keep your head warm and cozy. It’s a whole lot more fun to wear things that have your own personalized style infused in them. Put your fashion stamp on your winter hat by sprinkling it with Swarovski Crystals to stand out from the crowd.

free-diy-design-swarovski-crystal-fashion-design-winter-cap-crystalized

This DIY fashion design is easy as pie to make…easier than making pie, really. Swarovski makes Flatback Crystals that have glue that has been pre-applied to the back for easy application. These Flatback Crystals are called Hot Fix Stones. Simply create a design by placing the Hot Fix Crystals where you want them and apply your heated Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool directly on top of the stones for a minute. Simple as that!

2 Handy Application Tips: 

1. Don’t Get Stuck Doing This – Place a piece of cardboard underneath the the portion of the fabric where the Crystals will be glued to. This way you don’t glue both sides of the hat together 🙂

2.  Don’t Ruin Your Fabric – The Bejewler Pro Hot Fix Tool has different interchangeable size tips for the various size Flatbacks. Use a one size smaller tip than the Flatback Stone itself, this way you won’t burn the edges of your fabric. (you probably won’t burn the fabric, but I always like to let people know about this encase they are using the Bejewler Pro Hot Fix tool on nice or sensitive fabric such as a wedding dress).

Hey Chicago Whaddya Say, the Cubs Are Gonna Win Today! Go Cubs Go!

9626523-mlb-nlcs-los-angeles-dodgers-chicago-cubs-1-850x560

What an exciting World Series baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians! WOW! I’ve never seen a more fun, nail-biter of a game! Thankfully our beloved Cubbies FINALLY after 108 years, became champions once again!

Although I’m from Arizona, my hubby Mike has been a die-hard Cubbies fan for his whole life. So if my Hubby’s a Cubbie, I’m a Cubbie 🙂

His dreams came true when his brother, who lives in Chicago, called him up last week and said, I have tickets to the World Series games 4 & 5, do you wanna go? Well…it took 0.2 seconds for him to say YES!!!

I was so excited for him! He was going to be staying at his brother & sister-in-law’s house and I thought, how fun would it be to bling out some little Cubs shirts for his 18 month old niece! I quickly got to work and here’s what I made…P.S. I love them so much!

diy-instructions-on-how-to-glue-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt

I printed out the Cubs logo and cut out the area that I wanted to add my Swarovski Crystals. Bling-Bling-Baby!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-cubs-emblem

I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal Hot Fix Flat Back stones on this one, which was a perfect size for making two rows of crystals for the big C.

diy-swarovski-crystal-cubs-shirt-instructions

After placing the crystals in the C, I started heating up my iron. I used a pieces of thin parchment-like paper and softly laid it on top of the stones. Then I pressed the iron down on the C. I pressed hard and held it there for several minutes. I kept doing this process for several more minutes. I checked the stones one by one, to make sure they were secure and if I found a loose one, I used the Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool to secure it in place.

diy-swarovski-crystal-flat-backs-to-shirt-for-cubs

So CUTE! I love how the clear crystals match the clear crystal buttons on this little sweater.

I didn’t stop there….my next one was an iconic picture with much more detail. Drum roll please….

holy-cow-sparkling-shirt-diy-cubs

Well… Holy Cow, it’s Harry Caray!

What a fun guy he was and it was fun to pay tribute to him and his iconic over-sized glasses! I used the 2078-12ss Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks for the details of his eyes, smile chin and hair and the rest I used the 2078-30ss Swarovski Crystal Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones. These are the sizes that I liked best, but Swarovski offers a large variety of sizes,colors and styles for all of your crystal projects. Plus, you can’t beat our wholesale prices on all your favorite Swarovski Crystals!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-holy-cow-cubs

I’m not done yet! Third times a charm, right?! We needed all the luck we could get! I had one more pink T-shirt I wanted to bling out, so I went with a classic Cubs logo for the last one and I made an extra girly, extra sparkly one!

diy-blinged-out-cubs-shirt

Go Cubs Go!

I used the same C cut out as the first one, but this time I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the extra brilliance. It shines pinks, blues and yellow sparkles! I used the 2078-16ss Swarovski Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the UBS.

I had so much fun making these sparkling Swarovski Crystal shirts for our sweet little niece, everyone loved how they turned out and I’m sure she will be wearing one of them for the victory parade today!

Yay Cubbies!

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)

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.
