Enjoy Summer Before Fall Arrives & It’s Pumpkin Ev-e-ry-thing!

heart_Shapped_Glasses_beach

(photo by http://vilanianinaut.tumblr.com/)

I know it can be tempting to jump the gun on, well, just about every holiday or upcoming season…I know Fall is just around the corner and I’m certainly as excited it as y’all are…cozy sweaters, stunning foliage and pumpkin ev-e-ry-thing…. but wait…let’s pump the brakes for just a sec!

Fall and all of its delicious and natural gorgeousness will be here before we know it, so let’s take the time to enjoy the last bit of summer time fun while we can!

I’m more of a “be here now” – try and enjoy the moment – type of gal…so in an attempt to hold onto every last precious moment of summer and all it’s glory, here are some color inspirations and jewelry designs that we can admire, make and wear before it’s too late!

Last week we had a surge in demand & popularity for the beautiful Swarovski Crystal 6731 Sea Snail Pendant. They are available in many colors and are quite unique.

Special & Sparkly – There’s Just Nothin’ Like a Handmade Gift!

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration_Wholesale_crystal_beads

Awhile back, I had a delicious and fun brunch with some lovely lady friends (side note – it’s incredibly uplifting when you experience first hand, women supporting women – Yay!). Anyhoo’s… I was wearing a Swarovski Crystal necklace that I handmade myself, and I hear from across the room…I love Harmony’s necklace, I need one just like that in my life!

I was deeply touched that she liked my jewelry style and to be honest, when you hear something so nice about your creative work, you just never forget it! Right then, I was inspired to make her one! Fast forward a couple of months later, because you know, life gets busy…it’s her Birthday and what a perfect time to surprise her with her very own necklace. Oh what fun it is to be able to make gifts for the people in your life that you know will sincerely appreciate them!

Swarovski_Crystal_Heart_Beads_5741-Crystal_Silver_Night

Let the creativity begin…

When you’re making jewelry for someone else, either as a gift, or for resale, I believe the best place to start, is to draw their unique personality into your heart. Then think about who they are, their lifestyle and what they like to wear. Ultimately, all of these aspects come together to reveal what they are drawn to and how they express themselves. This is an excellent foundation to begin creating something distinctive just for them, that you know they will truly love.

This particular friend is a tough woman, with lots of talents, she’s a personal trainer (her muscles don’t lie 🙂 She’s also an esthetician, a wifey, and a mom, so I wanted to make her something that was bold, but not too bold, pretty, but not overly feminine, and something somewhat simple, so that she could wear it with all of the proverbial “hats” that she wears. Here’s what I came up with…

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration

The color pallet that I chose was Grey. I’m sure all of you hip fashionista’s know that grey tones have been wildly popular in the last couple of years. It’s true what they say; Grey is the new black, so I thought this would be a perfect tone to compliment her wardrobe style.

Swarovski_6106-Graphite-Pearshape_Pendants

I started with the 6106-22mm Swarovski Crystal Pearshape Pendant in the new Graphite color. This was the going to be the focal point of the necklace, and I incorporated similarly colored crystal beads to compliment this influence.

I didn’t want this crystal necklace to have a pattern, I wanted it to be asymmetrical to give it a little bit of an edgy look.

Swarovski_5328_Graphite_Xilion_Bicone_Beads

I added the 5328-4mm Swarovski Crystal Bicone Beads in Graphite. I also used the 5328-3mm, 4mm, 6mm & 8mm Swarovski Crystal Bicone Beads in Black Diamond and Black Diamond AB. I utilized the Swarovski Crystal 5000-4mm & 6mm Round Beads in Black Diamond and Black Diamond AB,  as well as the Swarovski Crystal 5000-5mm & 6mm Round Beads in Crystal Satin.

There are three different grey tones that Swarovski offers in their 5810 Round Crystal Pearls and I chose to use the Grey color. It’s a medium tone that works well in this piece, but I also could have also easily used the Dark Grey.

Swarovski_Crystal_Beads_5650_Crystal_Silver_Shade

I integrated one larger bead on one side to give it some depth and distinction, which was the Swarovski Crystal 5650-16mm Cubist Beads in Crystal Silver Shade. I love this style and the light sparkly hues of the Crystal Silver Shade create an extra touch of elegance.

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration_Wholesale_beads

For the final details, I included a few thin silver-toned flower spacers throughout the piece, especially where the crystals met the pearls. This helped to unify the silver toggle clasp with the sprinkles of silver throughout the necklace.

Swarovski_Crystal_Necklace-Design_Inspiration_Wholesale_crystals

Overall, I loved how it turned out and more importantly, SHE did too!

Her eyes lit up and she put it on right away! Even though we were camping, hiking and playing games in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, she wore it all day!

Happy Friend = Happy ME 🙂

I’ve been making handmade gifts for friends and family ever since I can remember, and it honestly never gets old! That same fantastic, fuzzy feeling pulses through me as I eagerly watch them open…..and….YAY! Excitement and gratitude are abound!

I hope this inspires you to make your own handmade jewelry as gifts, or resale, because you really can’t ever go wrong by surprising someone with SPARKLES! I’m always happy to help you with any color, style, or design combinations you may be interested in!

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

Crystal Fancy Stones, Beads and Pearls of various sizes and styles are utilized as all-over caviar coatings in random or geometric layouts for depth and luxurious tactility.

Sculptural jewels juxtaposed with the delicate beauty of a glossy gemstone look, create a dramatic fusion of edgy and graceful.

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.

swarovski-inspirations-no-normal-trend

A focus on charming basics, which are well designed and devoted to the user, without neglecting beauty, will take hold.

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!
