Holiday Collections 2012
I always like to make a little Holiday collection every year. It’s my way of adding some decadence to my current designs.
In between all of my jobs as a mom, wife and business person my head is always spinning with jewelry ideas. I’ve been known to take my sketch pad everywhere I go just so that I can jot down an idea, which eventually grows into a concept for a design. There have been so many designs in my head for my Holiday Collection this year that I have come up with three styles: Swarovski Crystal Collection, Spike Collection and my Ombre Effect Collection.
My favourite Holiday Collection is my Ombre Effect. I learned this summer from metal clay artist Hadar Jacobsen how to emulate the ombre effect with bronze and copper (an amazing process), and thought that I could transfer this look to the luxurious fine silver beads and Swarovski crystals. A gradual transition from fine silver (99.9% silver) faceted beads to the swarovski crystals emulates the ombre effect in an elegant way. The necklace can be worn long, doubled and short, or as a wrap bracelet with the pendant off. The fine silver diamond pendant and perfect circular Swarovski crystal reflects my current aRt DeCo Collection. A double wrap bracelet with the ombre effect and the silver diamond pendant is a perfect match. The earrings complete the look. I love how it turned out.
Enjoy the season with a little sparkle and shine with my new Holiday Collections!
