Embracing the Next
As jewelry designers and beaders, we’re always looking toward the next trends and new inspirations to light our creative flame. These latest Swarovski Innovations open up even more possibilities by embracing what’s to come by looking toward new jewelry-making endeavors. Here’s a peek at what will be available at Artbeads.com very soon!
New Baroque Crystal Pearls
Baroque Crystal Pearls will now be available in new shapes: Round, Coin, Drop, and Elongated, providing you with endless options for your jewelry. The new Baroque Crystal Pearl family lends itself to the ongoing focus on all things organic, magical, and natural. With undulating shapes and a soft sheen, they are perfect for both classic and otherworldly designs. In addition to beading, a range of further creative application techniques can be used, such as sewing, knitting, crocheting, threading, weaving, knotting and wire working. Just like genuine pearls, Swarovski Baroque Family Pearls adapt to body heat and become warmer. Combining the new shapes with existing pearl shapes, such as the classic round pearl in smaller sizes, offers additional design possibilities. Find these new Baroque shapes in beautiful colors like White, Cream, Dark and Light Grey, Iridescent Tahitian Look Pearl, and Rosaline.
Emerald Cut Pendant
In a renewed story of beauty and indulgence, the high-end classic shape of the exquisite Emerald Cut Pendant appeals to a newfound sense of street style luxe. Precious and refined, it seamlessly lends an urban edge to the elegant everyday glamour stories infiltrating luxury collections. Beautifully indulgent, familiar and inspiring, the versatility and boldness of the strong silhouette appeals to a rediscovered fixation on overtly opulent and feminine formats. The Emerald Cut is known for distinctive rows of facets combined with a long rectangular shape. The new Emerald Cut Pendant offers new classic and gemstone-look design possibilities, especially in combination with the already launched Swarovski Gem Cut family members: Classic Cut Pendant, Princess Cut Pendant, Heart Cut Pendant, and Pear Cut Pendant.
Briolette XXL Hole Bead
A renewed focus on retro and vintage in design concepts sees the return of beads as key design elements. This Briolette bead features the classical briolette cut for the outer shape and a larger hole diameter of 5.2mm. The large-hole crystal bead, with its incredibly precious looking cut, is suitable for any material. It can easily be applied by using a leather strand or cord to create stunning jewelry and accessories. It’s also suitable for complex beading designs, enabling beading thread to be passed through the hole many times. This bead opens up an opportunity to create unlimited designs for jewelry, apparel and accessories embellished with crystal beads.
Shimmer Line Extensions
The new Swarovski Innovations will also see line extensions for Light Rose Shimmer, Opal Shimmer, and a general Shimmer line extension for beads and pendants. This soft and elegant effect radiates multiple shades of a single color, turning every jewelry piece into a highlight. The Light Rose Shimmer effect is subtle and sophisticated, a popular match with Erinite Shimmer, Black Diamond, Light Sapphire, and so many more. You’ll see more Light Rose Shimmer options for Faceted Rounds and Bicones. The Opal Shimmer effect gives incredible brilliance and color vibrancy. These new and exciting opalescent crystal color and shimmer bead combinations will be available in bestselling shapes to create vibrant jewelry pieces – especially for young trendsetters. You’ll also see more Shimmer options for the Faceted Cube Beads and classic pendants, such as the Pear-Shaped Pendants, Heart Pendants, Princess Cut Pendants, and more.
