The outdoor art show season is in full swing. The shows seem to have a plethora of jewelry artists in all price ranges. If and when I hit the show road I would like to take a different path. The headband from Michelle Roy is an example of the ‘road less traveled’ that beckons me. We have boxes of beautiful fabric samples in the warehouse…a few polymer accents here…Swarovski’s there…and VIOLA!!!…something different.

BTW…don’t you love the Michelle Roy home page!!!

We need to break out the extruder again. (Actually, I need to take mine out of the box!!!) These bracelets from Covet could easily be extruded. Add a few hot fix Swarovski’s and we are in business. Since they retail for $219 we can take the savings ‘to the bank’.

One of my favorite and best selling bracelets (pictured below) was inspired by Italian jewelry designer Roberto Coin. The featured bracelet is from Swiss jewelry designer De Grisogono. The design is very simple. The elements float on a textured background. I love the contrast between the rough background texture, the refined texture of the pave diamonds and the sleek shine of the turquoise or silver elements.

swarovski-ebonyI love the contradiction in the Ginseng Ebony Bangle by Swarovski.  A smooth, quiet ebony surface paired with the energy of Swarovski crystals. The bangle pages of the Swarovski site feature bracelets of all sizes, shapes and degree of bling.

A recent ad from Framburg Lighting featured three lights with a bit of bling. The lamp on the left is accented by Swarovski crystals. The lamps in the center and right are accented by ‘lace’ glass to create the sparkle. Lace glass is a form of fused glass.

hollyfultonWhen I saw the photo of Holly Fulton’s fall ’09 collection, I knew I needed to feature her designs. I was not surprised to discover this collection was inspired by the Art Deco period.

Her web site is simple but the video of her collection and the bold necklaces are worth the time investment.

Her work is encrusted with Swarovski crystals and Perspex breastplates.
