Nunn Design Inspirations!

November 22nd, 2011 · 8 Comments

In celebration of our collection on new products, our designers were inspired to come up with their own jewelry ideas. The cool winter months of the upcoming holiday season is what helped inspire these designs, too! Check out these two simple designs you can make with some of our newest products!

Sometimes in the winter months it’s hard to stay happy. The cool weather and shorter days can seem to put us in a sour mood, where we just want to stay inside. This Bee Happy necklace helps lift our spirits during the long season. Its cute focal is made using a Nunn Design large oval bee tag link, stamped with Posh alphabet letter metal stamps and finished with a mini silver-plated toggle clasp with flower accents.

The pendant also features lovely black and yellow Swarovski crystals with wrapped loops made from sterling silver head pins attached to the bee tag link using a spring ring. This makes it easy to interchange color patterns so you can wear this necklace all year long!

Gone away is the blue bird, but this cheerful sight can stay with you for winter with this Fly necklace. The Nunn Design small circle bird charm is decorated using a metal stamping technique with some of our new alphabet letter metal stamps in an Elegant style.

This charm is accented by darling Swarovski crystals, including one of the newest colors—Denim Blue. Two Crystal pendants are attached together to one jump ring and a Denim Blue pendant to another and both jump rings are attached to a closed jump ring. The accent pieces are all threaded onto a royal blue silk ribbon, with everything held in place using silver-filled round beads.

    I haven’t gotten a “punch” yet to put my intent is toget one and put Sam’sGems and a tiny dragonfly on it. That’s my signature. I also like the fact that whoever made the item above probably just made it in 5 minutes. It is so cute!

    In the cool winter months I like to make jewelry that makes me smile and reminds me of the warmth of summer a time when nature can truly be enjoyed. I also try and get a years worth of holiday jewelry made so in the summer I can concentrate on the inspiration of the different colors and sounds of nature.

    I am always on a quest to find insperation for my designs. Nunn designs bring me emense insperation. I look at the designs and think, “Now, where and how can I use this design?

    Everywhere I look I get inspired. The changes of seasons, the sun, trees, plants, colors of nature – what more can I ask for! And what a double blessing to have jewelry design as my career. I love my job, can be as creative as my mind allows, and then have the opportunity to share my designs with others. I am truly blessed.
