This is a new shade, created as an homage to endless skies and mysterious seas; it is pure, with a deeper intensity and sparkle than any previous blue—ideal for bringing a magnetic allure to apparel, costumes, jewelry and accessories.

All themes – Culture, Freedom, Leisure, Adventure

The deep radiance of Majestic Blue is used as a connection between all 4 inspiration themes, highlighting the path of travel – whether it’s the deep blue sea, a raging river, or the wide open skies, our desire for freedom and escape is captured in its elegant shade.

Culture and Adventure

The Swarovski Crystal Hexagon, Square and Round Spike Beads demonstrate the design principles of flexibility and modularity by offering myriad ways to create tactile, edgy surface effects. Size and shape experiments translate into expressive, individualistic looks. These new beads will be available in sizes 5.5mm and 7.5mm. The 5.5mm size bead has a single hole and the 7.5mm-size bead features two parallel holes running side by side.

A combination of the three Spike Beads can be utilized for creating unique 3-dimenisional and eye-catching beading designs. The two holes in size 7.5mm facilitates double-strand bracelets, necklaces or rings, and adds stability, definition and shape to all designs.

These unique beads can be used in multiple segments and a variety of application methods, e.g. the beads can also be used as Sew-on Stones to give textiles even more glamorous and precious look.

Introducing Swarovski’s newest crystal style is called the Classic Cut Pendant

New Swarovski Crystal Fine Rocks Tube Beads Innovations

The fashion-forward Fine Rocks Tube Bead from Swarovski is a new hybrid bead created to enhance highly individual designs. Double-pointed Crystal Chatons give its surface the brilliance of a pavé finish, while the tube shape offers endless styling possibilities as a sew-on element or as a threaded bead.

Introducing the New Swarovski Crystal Shiny LacquerPRO Effects:

Crystal Buttercup, Crystal Lime, Crystal Lilac

New Swarovski Crystal Shinny Laquer effects

The Crystal Shiny LacquerPRO effects are available for the Swarovski Crystal Round Stones, Fancy Stones, Flat Backs No Hotfix and Flat Backs Hotfix.

Culture, Leisure and Freedom

The New Crystal LacquerPRO Effects Buttercup, Lime and Lilac answer our need for refined shine and uplifting hues. A perfect match for elegant styles, bold streamlined designs, and expressive looks, the New LacquerPRO Colors also offer exciting, fresh design possibilities when combined with Majestic Blue.

The LacquerPRO effects were tested extensively, showing good resistance to chemical, environmental, and mechanical influences (e.g., UV, sweat, and perfume resistance).

Introducing the Brand New Swarovski Crystal 3252 Emerald Cut Sew-On Stone

Swarovski Crystal Emerald Cut Fancy Stone.PNG

Freedom, Leisure and Adventure

A perfect companion for traditional elegant looks, the classic jewel cut of the Emerald Sew-on Stone appeals equally to truly individualistic styles and modern outdoor looks.

This elegant Swarovski Crystal Emerald Cut Sew-On Stone is ideal for embellishing shoes, accessories, womenswear, and dancesport via threading, wireworking, etc. This geometric shape gives an opportunity to create straight-line designs (e.g., borders, neckline,etc.) as well as large surface designs. Symmetrical design and shape of this Sew-on Stone guarantees identical designs on the left and right sides – for example, in shoes or textiles (designs can be flipped horizontally or vertically).

Introducing the New Swarovski Crystal 4322 Teardrop Fancy Stone

New Swarovski Crystal 4322 Teardrop Fancy Stone

Culture and Leisure

This modernization of a classic cut means that it suits forward-thinking and sculptural designs just as much as it does traditional elegance.

The New Swarovski Crystal Teardrop Fancy Stone and Setting is a slimmer, elegant, and more contemporary option, suitable for the bridge & fashion jewelry segment. This slimmer shape is ideal for filigree jewelry looks. This is a more brilliant cut due to unique faceting, rather than from greater depth or weight of shape. Mixing the teardrop with existing pear shapes 4320 and 4328, enables more design possibilities.

Introducing the Brand New Swarovski Crystal Letter BeCharmed Beads

These distinctive letter beads from Swarovski provides you with the ability to truly personalize your jewelry, as each letter is formed out of Crystals!

You now have the opportunity to create your own on-trend personalized messaged jewelry designs creating bracelets, necklaces, shoes, bags, accessories, etc. utilizing these Swarovski Crystal letter beads. These new beads are available in the 12mm and have the signature Swarovski® logo on each side of each bead next to the hole. Add these sparkling tailor made beads to your collection and create jewelry designs that have meaning and emotional value to you and the special people in your life.

Stay In the Know with These Jewelry and Culture Trends, Plus Design Inspirations.

New Swarovski Crystal Innovations Spring Summer 2019 Launch

As we look towards the future to try and gauge what cultural shifts, and stylish trends are on the horizon, Swarovski presents us with a valuable map that allows us to chart the vision of our new creations, utilizing the crystallized instruments through which we express ourselves.

As jewelry designers, it’s important to have an understanding of lifestyle trends and cultural changes, in order to provide your clients with innovative designs that express this growth. Below is information on the key trends to be aware of.

The new mood of boundless freedom and joy, a time of barefoot luxury and spiritual awakening, is reflected in four key trends:

Culture is inspired by “art tourism” and colorful urban installations; Freedom evokes the 70s surfer mantra “Take it easy”; Adventure prioritizes nature and the authentic journey; and Leisure is informed by a full-frills tourism that sees yachting as the prestige tailor-made holiday.

Design Inspiration for Swarovski’s new Color Majestic Blue

Swarovski Crystal necklace Design inspiration Mejestic Blue

Inspired by legendary French jewelry designer Jacques Gautier, who famously made pieces for Christian Dior, this necklace channels the vintage glass and enamel look for which he is famous. Black and white geometric blocks are contrasted with crystal flowers created using the new Majestic Blue color for a fresh couture look.

Design Inspiration Crystal Shiny LacquerPRO Effects:

Swarovski Crystal Necklace and tassel design inspiration ShinyLacquerPro_Necklace

Shiny new LacquerPRO effects—Lilac, Lime and Buttercup—punctuate delicate strands of neon beads and an eclectic collection of charms to create a laidback 80s surfer vibe. Offering brilliant versatility, the shorter strand detaches from the necklace to make a matching ankle chain.

Swarovski Crystal Bead and Iridescent Dove Grey Pearl Bracelet Design Inspiration

Swarovski Crystal and Pearl cuff Bracelet Design Inspiration

As Coco Chanel famously remarked: “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” Inspired by Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2017 prêt-à-porter collection, jewelry this season is opulent, featuring softly opaque pearls, precious metals, and lashings of crystals. The palette is classic: pastel pale and lustrous. The silhouette, however, is modern: big, bold, and head turning.

Unique Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Necklace Design Inspiration

Unique Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design Inspiration

It’s all about standing out and expressing your very own individual style. This Crystal and metal necklace design does just that, as well as highlighting an exceptional way to use the new Teardrop Fancy Stone in differing sizes.

Swarovski Crystal Fine Rocks Tube Bead Earring Design Inspiration

Swarovski Crystal Fine Rocks Tube Bead Earrings design inspiration

Beaded oversized statement earrings remain the focus for directional accessorizing. The key feature of this eye-catching look is exaggerated proportions, often with an extra-long drop that brushes the shoulder. High-shine elements maximize the visual dynamic, as demonstrated by this glittering circle design made using Fine Rocks Tubes.

New Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design Inspiration

If you are applying Swarovski Crystals to bathing suits that are not breathable, then it is best to use the Non Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones and use the E6000 glue. The Crystal Katana is a fabulous tool that will pick up the Crystal Rhinestones and place them exactly where you want them. It’s a dream tool and will make your life and Flatback projects soooooo much easier!

Hope you have fun enhancing your bathing suits this summer!

Now it’s time to lose the phone, hit the beach, and chill!!

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….

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_4

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!
