Nunn Design 2018 Winter Collection and a Giveaway!

Nunn Design 2018 Winter Collection

We’re still in the middle of winter time, which means the cold weather is hanging around and everyone is staying in to keep warm. In Scandinavian culture, now is the perfect time to embrace the concept of hygge, which focuses on simple pleasures and all things cozy. Making jewelry is a great way to get in the spirit of this concept. Set up your bead mat next to your fireplace, pour some hot cocoa into your favorite mug, curl up in a blanket, and get inspired to make something stylish! Nunn Design just introduced a new collection for the 2018 Winter season and it’s full of beautiful components to get your creativity started during the cozy season. Let’s take a look and make sure to read to the end to learn how you could win some of the pieces from the collection.

Nunn Design 2018 Winter Collection

This new collection has that wonderful handmade, artisan look people crave. These pieces will give an organic touch to any design thanks to the texture, detail, and unique styling found in each component. Becky Nunn of Nunn Design created many of the models for this collection herself and they have a hand-forged look by design. Included in the collection are drop charms, hammered moon and cross charms, organic hoops, flat tags, ear wires, wire frames, bezels, jump rings, bails, and even some new findings. Becky Nunn and her team have created some beautiful jewelry designs to get you inspired to start using this collection in your projects.

Nunn Design Square Wire Rings

Let’s start off with new jump rings. Jump rings are a staple in jewelry designs and Nunn Design offers some really unique options with this collection. You’ll find textured triangles and squares, along with traditional round jump rings with the added flair of a twisted texture. Large jump rings made from square wire are also new and we love the bold look they provide. You can see them linked together to create a bracelet in the picture above. They also make great focal points, because you can add dangles to them. Check out that new open triangle pendant and faceted drop on the end of the bracelet, too. So cute!

These designs incorporate the new organic flat tags and hoops. Like the square wire rings, they make wonderful connection points. You can also dangle them like charms on their own. The organic flat tags feature an irregular surface for a handmade vibe. As these pieces show, they look great as a stand-alone piece, embellished with crystals, or layered with other charms. You can also try metal stamping on the surface for a personalized look. Can you spot the new hinged bail in one of the designs above? It’s hanging from the organic hoop on the far left. It’s used as the base for a long drop made from epoxy clay. We’re also loving how the new pear-shaped bezel is used in this piece – filled with epoxy clay and embellished with ball chain. As Becky Nunn intended, these new items look great with other Nunn Design components, like the arrowhead open pendant and the short and long paddles featured here (and if you haven’t learned how to embed organics into resin yet, make sure to check out our video with Becky Nunn on the subject).

The 2018 Winter Collection also includes a new pointed oval wire frame shape. We love the wire frames (check out our ice cream necklace and wire-wrapped pendant to see how our designers have used them) and this new shape is a great addition. The little point at the bottom is great for dangling charms and the frame also provides some unique wire wrapping opportunities. You can also get creative with resin and fill the frame shape. We have a video for how to make wire frame pendants with resin here.

This collection looks great with leather, too. The organic, handmade styles are perfect for matching with rich leather colors and surfaces. Don’t be afraid to mix the components with a little color, either. The designs here feature open frame pendants filled with colorized resin for a fun pop. We love the blue moon and star pendants on the new bold oval hoop earwires. Also take note of the creative use of the new triangle pendant used as a toggle in the brown leather design.

For wonderful dangles in all kinds of designs, make sure to check out the new cross charm, organic drops, and the square and pear bezels. The cross charm features a lovely hammered texture, once again providing artisan style. We love how the cross is layered with plenty of textured jump rings and a faceted drop in the necklace above. The organic drops are so simple yet effective in designs. They come in large and small sizes and look great alone, like in the necklace at the center of this photo, or jumbled with other dangles. Square and pear bezels are made to fit 12mm cushion stones and 14mm pear stones respectively, but you can also use them with resin and epoxy clay.

There are even more great components in this collection (like ball end head pins and more ear wire shapes), so make sure to see everything on our website. We love this collection so much, we want to give some pieces away!

    Love the drops. I think would look great with some fine chain tassel or seed bead tassel on a long rustic chain. The hoops would work well with wire wrap and beads.

    My eye was immediately drawn to the flattened silver piece. I love it’s wonky shape and would love to do some layered pendants. Maybe on a ribbon or a ribbon chain combo.

    This collection is just what I need to inspire some new designs. One of my favorite gemstones is turquoise. It would work so perfectly with the very organic, natural look of these pieces. Combined with freshwater pearls, the cross would be stunning. The earrings would dazzle with a combination of turquoise and coral. Adding a touch of crystal to any of the pieces would make the piece memorable. What a stunning collection, my fingers are crossed. I hope I’m the lucky winner, but good luck to all entrants.

    I love the silver flat piece . . . I would layer the cross on top of it with a wire wrapped dangle added to it and maybe use a piece of leather to hang it from, or maybe two different types and sizes of chain. All the pieces are great . . . I love to play around with different things and see what I can come up with. The sky is the limit with all these pieces!

    I love this collection and would definitely make a long necklace with dangles hanging from the hammered ring – and maybe wire some czech glass beads to the earrings 😊👍🏻

    Like some of the others, I can’t pick just one or two…love them all. I just dug out 3 boxes of copper that I started out with 10 years ago and wanted to get back to a more rustic look. These pieces fit the bill perfectly!! Especially love the innovative pendants!! Would love to win but already ahead of the game with inspirations from this new collection!!

    I love the crescent moon and the circle tag, I would use them layered as a focal on a necklace.

    I love it all! My favorite pieces are the dangles. What would I make…hmmm…not sure. Maybe some earrings. If I owned the whole collection it would be easier to decide. lol

    It is hard to choose! I would love to do some layering with the flat round(ish) pendants, however. The various drops would be fun, too.

    I love the new earring shapes. A simple drop and your done. The design is too pretty to cover up.

    I hope I’m not too late to the party. This collection is fabulous, and I’m not sure I can pick a favorite. The earring wires are works of art as is, but I have visions of all the different things that could be done with them. Then again, I also love all of the new jump ring designs. Who am I kidding? I can’t pick a favorite.
