Love in Every Bead ~ A Special Mother’s Day Necklace Design Inspiration!

Happy Mothers Day Love

Here’s one of my most cherished pictures of my wonderful Mom and I

Mother’s Day is that extra special time to reflect on the love and caring nature Mother’s give to their children. I feel incredibly lucky to have a mother who continues to be there for me and love me unconditionally. It’s the absolute greatest gift in the world and I’m always humbled by the power of love.

Happy-Mothers-Day-Tag-With-Flowers

This beautiful quote by Yogananda expresses the divine quality of a Mother’s love;

“The Mother’s love is not given to us to spoil us with indulgence, but to soften our hearts, that we may in turn soften others with kindness.”

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, I made a special Swarovski Crystal and Pearl necklace for my Mom to honor and celebrate everything she means to me. She is always so sweet in loving everything I make her.

Swarovski_5741_Crystal_Heart_Beads_Blush_Rose

For Easter, I made her a sparkling Swarovski Crystal bracelet with spring tones and she wore it for a week straight. My Dad said she wore it on their nature walks and she would say “Harmony’s coming on the walk with us“. That literally melted my heart! I just thought that was the absolute sweetest! I pour my heart and energy into making jewelry for my friends and family and for my Mom to feel closer to me through the jewelry I make her, is incredibly touching.

Here’s the Swarovski Crystal and Pearl tassel necklace I made this Mother’s Day. I hope this design inspires you to make something extra special for your Mom, or if you’re a Mom who loves to make jewelry, it’s time to treat yo’ self!

Stylish Trend Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel Necklace

I wanted to make a soft and elegant necklace that had a touch of whimsical style. I Looooved how it turned out, I made one for myself too  🙂

Swarovski_Pearls_5810_Crystal_Pearls_Platinum

The style 5810 wholesale Swarovski Pearls that I used were in the color Platinum. Platinum is a wonderful neutral tone that goes with just about everything and even better, you can pair it with Gold or Silver tones and it looks beautiful with both!

You can even mix the goldish hues of the Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow, with the light silver tones of Crystal Silver Shade together and it looks dreamy!

My Mom wears gold, so I made her’s with gold accents and mine with silver accents.

I mostly used the 5810-6mm and 8mm sized Swarovski Pearls and the 3mm and 4mm in one area for a tiny graduation up from the Crystal beads.

Swarovski_5058_Baroque_Beads_Crystal_Golden_Shadow

I especially wanted to incorporate the new Swarovski stylish 5058 Baroque Bead for it’s elegant and timeless shape. I used the 5058-10mm and 14mm Crystal Golden Shadow Baroque Beads as highlights, surrounded by style 5000-6mm and 8mm Round Beads and 5328-4mm and 6mm Bicone Beads all in the matching Crystal Golden Shadow effect.

I added some little gold flower elements to accentuated the Pearls and Crystals, which complimented the gold tones in the Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow beautifully.

I finished off the necklace with a gold clasp and a tassel that matched the Platinum Pearl color perfectly! I found the tassel at my local Jo-Ann Fabric and craft stores not in the jewelry section, but in the fabric tassel section.

The last Crystal that I added at the bottom, for a nice touch of sparkle, was the 6871-28mm Swarovski Crystal Buddha Pendant in Crystal Silver Shade.

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)

A focus on quality and craft is key in sustainable, hard-wearing designs decorated with Crystals.

The significance of the apron as a practical element taken from life on the land turns into a high-end fashion statement when combined with radiant Swarovski Crystals.

Function Meets Beauty

There will be an increasing trend towards making functional pieces, such as aprons, shoes or work boots, buckles and hats to also be embellished with crystals creating a beautiful utilitarian purpose.

Keep it Natural & Simple with Soft, Relaxed Fabrics

Oversized, heavy knits interwoven with crystal components continue to show our affiliation with all things natural and simple.

Soft, natural and relaxed fabrics will be popular, such as lambswool, felt, and angora  creating an elevated luxurious look and feel. Pockets will be incorporated into many garments, paying homage to the tomboy style.

New Swarovski Lacquer Coatings Express a Sophisticated Shine

The new Swarovski Crystal Lacquer colors perfectly resonate with the current consumer mood, where sophistication shine meets refined sparkle. Highlighting a strong new direction for crystal, the on-trend hues of Ivory Cream and Dark Red convey a sense of timelessness in a subtle, reduced color palette speaking of heritage and authenticity.

As a perfect match to the new Iridescent Red Pearl, these new effects continue the allure of Crystal Lacquer Powder effects and present a completely new complement to the Swarovski color and effect assortment.

Swarovski’s Newest Fall and Winter Pearl Innovation: Crystal Iridescent Red

With people exploring a cultural mash-up of styles and designs, colors no longer simply feature a single hue, but cleverly merge multiple tones together, reflecting a reestablished love of eccentricity and individuality.

The Crystal Iridescent Red Pearl unites seemingly impossible extremes, oscillating between rich reds and airy gray tones.  It serves as a perfect match for the new Crystal Dark Grey and Crystal Dark Red Laqcuer effects, creating very elegant jewelry designs.

Swarovski’s New Framed Flatbacks Crystal Rhinestones

Millennials and Gen Z are reinventing their work-life balance, moving between a rediscovered love of handcraft and continued fascination with the digital world. Easy, comfortable shapes, functionality and clever material mixing are today’s heroes, and the Framed Flat Back captures them all perfectly.

Cabochons meet metal in a fusion of pearl and flat rivet for a new industrial-inspired looks and sci-fi work-wear directions, referencing a new breed of bright young things. The Framed Flatback Rhinestones bring both functionality of a cost- and time saving Hotfix rivet and the elegant look of a timeless piece.

Swarovski Crystal Product Inspiration

Classic Round and Pear shapes reflect a more humble and pared-back approach to embellishment.

Geometric crystal patterns and metal elements create an industrial-inspired style, celebrating a revived love of the rough and rustic.

Iridescent Crystal Pearls and Framed Cabochons alternate with the new shiny Lacquer crystals, highlighting the current desire for reduced shine in authentic and humble design directions.

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. All of these natural green tones always  match well with the lighter tan colors of Ivory Lacquer, Crystal Golden Shadow,  and Light Colorado Topaz. The darker brown to grayish influences include Crystal Bronze Shade, Colorado Topaz, Smoked Topaz, and Greige.

DIY Multi-Strand Bracelet Highlighting Peacock Colors Using the New Crystal Rainbow Dark Effect

free-diy-swarovski-crystal-rainbow-dark-bracelet-design-and-instructions

Free Crystal DIY Multi-Strand Bracelet Featuring the New Fall/Winter Swaorvski Innovations. It features gorgeous color combinations in an array of peacock type hues that are especially on trend in the cooler months.

With the cooler Fall weather in the air, it’s been exciting looking forward to all of the new activities Autumn has to offer. Mike, Kashi and I enjoyed one of our favorite traditions, leaf peeping! Here in Colorado there is no shortage of one of my favorites trees, Aspens. We set off early in the morning, driving up through Estes Park and on to a quintessential drive called the Peak to Peak highway. It’s absolutely gorgeous and both Kashi and I have our heads and toungs hanging out the window the whole time 😉

kashi-and-harmony-fall-hiking-2016

Hiking through the woods and seeing all of the rich golden colors, truly makes my heart soar. I always feel at home in nature and it brings more peaceful, loving energy into my heart. It inspires me in many ways and I feel refreshed and alive. It also helps me to feel more creative and I love to pour that refreshing sense of awe and gratitude into making new types of jewelry for not only myself, but gifts for my friends and family.

As we transition into the cooler months, our fashion and jewelry styles change and we begin to embrace the darker tones. With this years’ new coating from Swarovski, the Crystal Rainbow Dark 2X, is such a gorgeous blend of peacock colors, showcasing purple, green and yellow hues set on a black background. It will certainly be a new staple when making crystal jewelry designs that stand out as being unique and captivating.

Swarovski Innovations Fall Winter 2017/18

The Crystal Rainbow Dark effect is almost as if Swarovski took the most popular coating, the Crystal AB and placed it on a black backdrop. It’s quite a brilliant idea and leave it to Swarovski for making it spectacular. It resembles an oil mark splashed onto a Crystal, which is very innovative and fits perfectly with the overall trend of people wanting to express themselves in novel ways and wear truly unique pieces.

Summer Festival Fever

TREND

Summer doesn’t feel like summer without rocking out at a music festival. From family-friendly block parties to boutique “glamping”, if you haven’t got your checklist done, waste no time, ’cause this summer is loaded with options. Go old school with flower tiaras or Woodstock floatiness, or go modern in cyber punk or cowboy looks. But whatever you choose, remember to take your festival staples: denim cut-offs, boho jewelry, funky bag and bandana. It’s time to embrace fringes, tassel jewelry, floppy hats and all the other festival accessories you’ve been waiting all year to wear.

 Don’t forget the three golden rules: customize, customize, customize! So line up the crystals you’ll need for sexy earrings and bracelets; make a colorful tribal trim for your hat; and get a funky festival manicure with your friends. Then just tune in and get that weekend festival vibe!

TECHNIQUES

Stringing: String crystals onto beading wire, thread, cord, or even ribbon, depending on the size of the hole, is a very easy way to make beautiful jewelry or crystal creations to enjoy. With limitless colors available, you can achieve any number of design possibilities.

Knotting: The “Crowning Hippie Chic” hat project uses a technique called a “Surgeon’s Knot”, which worth mastering, as it’s a lot less likely to untie itself. It’s similar to the regular square knot, but with this difference: When you’re doing the first half of the knot, instead of taking one thread around the other thread just once, you wrap around it twice. This tight double-wrap will hold securely while you do the second half of the square knot in the usual way.

Swarovski Crystal Boho Bangle Instructions

STEP 1: Tie a knot on the bangle with the thread. Slide Swarovski Bead art. 5000 6mm Crystal Beads onto it using a beading needle. Wrap the thread around the bangle and back through the Swarovski bead and then onto the other bangle. Repeat this procedure until the bead is stabilized. Repeat the entire step to insert all the Swarovski 5000 beads onto the bangle.

STEP 2: Insert Swarovski Bead art. 5728 12mm Crystal Metallic Sunshine onto the headpin. Turn a loop at the end and twist the wire twice around the base of the loop. Repeat once more using the Swarovski Crystal Pearl art. 5860.

STEP 3: Insert the tassels onto the split rings.

STEP 4: Insert Swarovski Crystal Pearl, Swarovski Bead and the tassel to the bangle using 5mm jump rings. Attach the rest of the Swarovski Crystals on the material list to the other bangle as shown in our illustrations with this step.
