Jewelry Designs That Will Enthuse Even the Most Uninspired!

Swarovski SALT Magazine

Yesterday I was reading the Swarovski SALT Magazine for a little inspiration (which by the way – is absolutely fabulous!) and I came across an article highlighting the fashion/design school called the Central Saint Martins college of art which is in London. Swarovski  sponsors and collaborates with these students by donating gorgeous crystals to draw inspiration from and to be used in designs and contests. I wanted to point this out because I was especially inspired by what the school tries to instill in their students. A few highlighted themes include:

Free thought, independence of spirit, and a rebellious nature. These are just some of the qualities nurtured by this exceptional school whose graduates have gone on to be world leaders in fashion.

Swarovski Salt Magazine Highlights

As jewelry designers, artists and creative people, I’m sure you’re always striving to design fresh and new ideas to your line. Expanding your horizons, evolving, and relentlessly pursuing your passion. Those are some of the reasons why being creative is so darn fun!

Here are a few  examples of jewelry designs that push the limits and dare to be different. I hope they arouse your creativity to new heights and ever new possibilities!

(Jewelry Designs by Eric Daman for Atelier Swarovski Native Modern)

I find that these jewelry designs have somewhat of a chaotic nature. They combine many different elements together such as the Swarovski Mosaic stones, different shaped cup-chains, along with unique styles of beads, pendants and colors. Yet with all of this going on, if you look closely you’ll find that they are balanced out by a repetitive pattern. This duality is balanced very well and is a way in which you can expresses a real sense of creative wildness, while still maintaining its integrity and orderliness which so many people are naturally drawn to.

crystal jewelry inspiration bib necklace

(Design by Renata Sanchez Ramos)

This unique bib necklace is a outstanding example of weaving mixed medias in and out to create one dynamically dramatic design. Integrating different textures such as Swarovski Pearls, Swarovski Crystals, Epoxy Clay (or Ceralun), ribbon and elastic mesh in complimentary colors creating an overall irresistibly enticing design.

 Crystal bracelet

(Bracelet Design by AliExpress)

This colorful crystal and braided leather bracelet features many different styles of crystals in metal settings which allow the crystals themselves to be showcased. I’m especially drawn to the overlapping look, it gives it a lively and energetic type of movement to the piece that is then grounded by the leather background. It’s a bohemian chic style that is both whimsical and substantial at the same time.

Magnificent Marsala ~ 5 Inspiring Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Designs for the Stylist in You!

Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

(Color Love – Pantone Marsala by suelibertiny on Polyvore)

My new color crush is emphatically, marvelous Marsala!

I adore this color, not only because it’s the color of the year, but because it provides a versatile platform for which so many complementary colors can emerge from, such as deeper or lighter red colors, as well as purple or pinkish – salmon hues. This intoxicating tone also has the added benefit of pairing incredibly well with standard colors, such as gold, silver, white and black.

You just can’t go wrong with the multi-talented Marsala!

Swarovski Marsala Ruby and Gold Bracelet

Bracelet designed by Fineheart handmade jewelry on Etsy.

This gorgeous Swarovski Crystal bracelet features the 5520 Graphic beads in Ruby along with charming accents of 5020 Helix Beads in Crystal Golden Shadow. These color combinations work remarkably well with the 14K gold wire and clasp, creating a stately, sophisticated and high-end piece.

Swarovski Crystal Pearl Bordeaux Bracelet with silver pave beads

This bracelet design was created by DebraAnnCreations found on her Etsy page.

This beautifully simple yet very elegant Swarovski Bordeaux Pearl bracelet is accentuated with silver crystal pave beads. The silver really pops against the rich maroon-like red pearls.

 Marsala pearl and crystal necklace with silver tones

This twisted pearl and crystal necklace was created by JoyKatharine found on her Etsy site.

The berry-like tones found in Marsala pairs exceptionally well with silver hues as well. This multi-stranded Burgundy, Blackberry and Light Grey Swarovski Pearl necklace incorporates a touch of sparkle creating a youthful, energetic look that is fashionably chic. These are not Swarovski crystals, so to make this more of a luxurious, timeless piece, incorporate Swarovski Beads in light to medium grey tones such as Crystal Silver Shade, Crystal Satin or Black Diamond.

Swarovski Crystal Ruby, Padparadascha and Light Rose Earrings

These earrings were designed by Crystal Victoria found on her Flicker page.

Similar Marsala colors include Siam and Ruby which coalesce especially well with soft pink and salmon-like hues such as Light Rose and Padparadscha found in these lovely Swarovski Crystal Bicone earrings. A natural complimentary tone to tie these influences together is gold or rose-gold finishes.

 Swarovski Marsala Burgundy Emerald Cut Necklace

This necklace was made by BeYourselfJewelry and found on their Etsy page.

This stunning necklace is so captivating, it’s a standalone Burgundy beauty!

The Swarovski 4627-27 x 18.5mm Emerald Cut Fancy Stone boasts a brilliantly robust and earthy red wine color. This elegant style radiates an exquisite faceting structure that is graceful and timeless.

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!
