Step by Step Instructions:

STEP 1: Print and cut out the flower pattern from our illustration in this step.

STEP 2: Cut two 16x14cm long pieces of Alcantara fabric and a fusible interlining of the same size. Layer the interlining in between the Alcantara pieces and iron them.

STEP 3: Affix the flower pattern on top of Alcantara fabric piece using double sided tape and cut out the pattern.

STEP 4: Place Swarovski Flat Backs Hotfix art. 2304 14×3.9mm and 10×2.8mm Crystal Silver Night onto the Alcantara pattern and place the transfer film over the Swarovski Flat Backs Hotfix to prevent them from moving (see illustration with this step).

STEP 5: Iron on top of the transfer film and slowly remove the film to see if the Swarovski Flat Backs Hotfix crystals have adhered onto the fabric.

STEP 6: Cut one 7mm piece of chain, two 10mm pieces and one 12mm piece of chain. Insert Swarovski Bead art. 5045 6mm Crystal Scarabaeus Green onto an eye pin, turn a loop at the end and cut off excess wire. Repeat this process with the two 4mm 5045 beads.

STEP 7: Attach the chains to the beaded eye pins by opening the eye pins and attach the Swarovski Pendants to the chains using 3mm jump rings.

STEP 8: Sew the chains onto the flower pattern as shown in the illustration. Sew the remaining Swarovski Crystals on to the Alcantara fabric pattern.

STEP 9: Cut two 70cm long ribbon pieces and sew them to the back of the Alcantara flower pattern.

STEP 10: Tie a bow with the open ends of the ribbon.

3 Jewelry Trends for 2015

Women’s fashion and jewelry trends are continuously evolving and it’s nice to keep up to date with expected forecasts. Not only does it keep you stylish and looking your best, it can be a great source of inspiration, sparking your creativity to design new special pieces for your business, yourself, as well as friends and family!

Handmade_jewelry

One of the best trends this year includes making and buying homemade jewelry!

We all know there is something extra special about making your own jewelry. You know exactly what styles you like best, and there is something magical that happens when you’re directly involved in the creative process of designing something beautiful. You feel accomplished, you’re energy level is uplifted, you feel a boost of optimism and are proud to wear your personalized jewelry.

It also feels incredibly great to make something for a friend, family or colleague as well as supporting self-employed designers. It’s a remarkable feeling when you purchase from designers, because you’re directly supporting their skills and passion which is essentially making their dreams come true!

 Jewelry_trends_2015

A really unique fashion trend for 2015 is the unbalanced style!

The single-earring trend has given way to innovative ear ornamentation. The distinguishing characteristic is an asymmetrical look, whether in color, length or shape. Beauty is found in the irregularity of the style, it’s about branching out and embracing something totally different.

I admit, it can feel a little odd to not have matching earrings, but if you’d like to step out of your comfort zone and do something a little wild and crazy…then I say go for it, there’s no harm in trying something new. Plus, you can make it as dramatic or as subtle as you’d like.

Swarovski_Crystal_Pendants

Statement Pendants are a bold and definitive style trend in 2015!

The pendant necklace is coming out swinging this year! This is fabulous news for all you crystal lovers out there! There are abundant Swarovski crystal pendant options and with this style, you don’t have to choose just one. Mix and match different styles together creating exceptionally exclusive designs that are one-of-a-kind delights. You can instantly update your basics with a large pendant or intricate necklace design.

Swarovski Heart

I hope these jewelry trends are a source of inspiration for you to go out and create something gorgeous!

Fall and Winter 2014 Jewelry Trends ~ Focusing on THE STILLNESS WITHIN

PROGRESSIVE Trend ~ The Stillness Within

This Progressive Trend theme conjures up images of snow-peaked mountains, solitude and stillness. It’s a peaceful time to reflect on beauty, the abundant physical beauty found in nature as well as the innate beauty found within.

It’s a time to deeply feel and understand life and your creativity in new ways by discovering how to connect to your inner tranquility. It’s the desire to disconnect from our complex world, to switch off high-tech gadgets and tune into ourselves in a more natural way.

The variety of shapes that correspond to the Progressive Theme have an organic quality, with an elegant blend of high-tech crystal cuts. It’s a graceful union between the natural world and how designers emulate or captures its’ exquisite perfection in a lovely piece of jewelry.

Jewelry features geometric forms balanced by crystals resembling gemological growth structures that convey a sense of weightless transparency. Captured in the new Designer Edition, Vision Round and Fancy Stones by Atelier Munsteiner for Swarovski, these crystals resemble frozen water with flower-shaped air bubbles trapped within them, lending a sense of quiet serenity to garments, jewelry and new segments.

Asymmetry appears strongly in design: exaggerated layering, pleated paneling, architectural volume, origami-inspired angular folds and cut outs add to a multi-dimensional experience. Strong, clean silhouettes with sophisticated crystal embellishments reflect the need for stillness and calm.

Clusters of crystals in similar hues act as radiant and fluent accents that can display movement. Tranquility and fluidity are used to calm the senses and bring a sens of the natural and the surreal into jewelry designs.
