I don’t make a lot of purple jewelry for myself, but I definitely see a multi-strand Iridescent Purple Swarovski Crystal Pearl necklace happening in my future! I think this pearl is absolutely stunning with its purple-green shimmer! I love Crystal Bermuda Blue, especially in the new Queen Baguette Pendant! I was sold when I saw our stunning Dazzling Cascade Earrings; they’re a new favorite of mine and I definitely plan on making a pair for myself and as gifts for friends this holiday season! I love the Spike Pendant, and I think it is gorgeous in the Crystal Patinas! It can add a little edge to any jewelry design, like our striking Next Level Earrings! The Arrow Bead is definitely one of my favorites from the Swarovski Innovations Fall/Winter 2015/16 launch! I was immediately inspired by this bead and I already have a few earring and necklace designs I can’t wait to create! Check out how we used this fun bead in our trendy Love is in the Arrow Necklace!
I am in love with the Iridescent Purple Pearl color, especially in the Coin Pearl shape! Check out our Pearl Berry Bracelet, where we paired the Iridescent Purple Pearl with other Swarovski Crystal Pearls to make a beautiful cluster bracelet! The Sun Pendant is a great classic shape, and the facets really bring out the true beauty of this pendant. I love how it looks in the Blazing Sunset Necklace! The Arrow Bead is a fun and trendy new shape, and in the Crystal Metallic Light Gold 2x effect, it is so eye-catching! I can’t wait to use it in some new designs! The Crystal Paradise Shine is such a gorgeous effect, especially in the foil-backed stones. I can’t wait to make a pair of earrings similar to our Touch of Elegance Earrings!
I love using cool colors in my designs, so I was thrilled to see so many new Swarovski items in fabulous greens, blues, and purples! The faceted layers of the Sun Pendant are practically made for reflecting all the hues in multi-colored effects, and the Crystal Heliotrope doesn’t disappoint! I was already a huge fan of the Clover Bead and Pendant, so I was immediately in love with the Clover Button right off the bat; the Emerald Clover Button looks amazing with my red hair! The foil backing on the Crystal Paradise Shine Rivoli turns the new effect into a brilliant, glittering stone that will really sparkle in a seed beaded bezel! You’ve got to see the Iridescent Purple Pearls in person to truly appreciate their metallic glow; the Coin Pearl shape in this new color is my favorite!
I’m in love with the new line from Swarovski for the fall! The new Arrow Bead is by far my favorite. I’m imagining all the possibilities for necklaces and earrings, especially in the fantastic Rose Gold effect! The new BeCharmed Medley beads are GORGEOUS! The mix of sizes, stones and colors are beautiful. The Queen Baguette Pendant is so simple but elegant. I can’t wait to make a simple pair of dangle earrings or use a bunch of them in a statement fringe necklace! Now, I’m not a purple person, but the new Iridescent Purple Pearl is amazing. It picks up so many different colors, and I’m dying to blend it with some dark, moody winter colors!
I love the Tuxedo Swarovski Crystal BeCharmed Pavé Medley Bead because its sparkles and glitters like nothing I have ever seen! I can’t wait to make a bracelet with this. I love the new Iridescent Purple Pearl color; it reminds me of car paint, but in a good way! The Spike Pendant from the last launch is one of my favorite new Swarovski shapes, but now I can get it with Crystal Patinas! Now we’re talking! I think I’ll make a cute pair of earrings with these. I also really love the new Queen Baguette Pendant shape, since I’m a sucker for geometries! The Crystal Bermuda Blue Swarovski Crystal Queen Baguette Pendant has such a pretty finish, too! I think I’ll make earrings with these as well and I might even rock a matching necklace…we’ll see!
I love the way the Crystal Paradise Shine effect looks on the foil-backed stones. I can’t wait to see how it looks in a Crystal Clay piece! I want to try it with a purple clay base and also a green clay base. I think the effect will look completely different depending on the color of the clay. Either way there is going to be sparkle, sparkle, sparkle! The Iridescent Purple pearl is amazing! I loved the Iridescent Green pearl from the last season and I think the purple will be just as exciting. I want to pair it up with some purple-toned crystals and make a piece for my mom. She will absolutely love it. I think the Tuxedo Swarovski Crystal BeCharmed Pavé Medley Bead is going to be one of my all-time favorite beads…ever! This little BeCharmed bead is similar in color and style to the Crystal Clay pieces that I make myself. It will be perfect in my existing collection. I plan on making myself a piece of jewelry that I will be able to wear everyday. The sleek shape and modern faceting of the Queen Baguette Pendant is gorgeous, but then add the Volcano effect and it is a fiery pendant! The Crystal Volcano effect only comes in a handful of beads and pendants, and that’s what makes this piece so exciting. I will definitely be adding several of these to my collection!
