New Fall Jewelry Necklace

I purchased this stunning pendant from a local bead store about a year ago. At the time, I hadn’t a clue how I’d use it and didn’t have any specific design pop to mind -however, it was too stunning a pendant to pass up (and there was only one available). The pendant is a handcrafted lampwork bead with a rich reddish-russet color surrounded by a flurry of tans, browns and black.

It is the perfect start to fall because of its rich colors and the way in which the colors in the pendant appear, to me, makes me think of swirling piles of colorful autumn leaves. The base color in this design is a neutral, goes-with-anything black faceted oval bead which is accented by dazzling Swarovski crystal in smokey topaz.

This is a limited edition necklace and will be available for purchase on the website by September 7, 2007.

*New* Necklaces

There was no particular idea how to use them or inspiration when I purchased these stunning amethyst nuggets. Although, they pair perfectly wire-wrapped with goldfill rings and this necklace transitions easily from daytime to nightime, whatever the occasion. What is so fantastic about this necklace is you can wear it with the stylish clasp in front or put the clasp in back for a whole other look.

Cranberries and Raisins -looks yummy doesn't it?! These rich colors were the inspiration behind this "yummy" pendant necklace featuring a smokey quartz marquis-cut gemstone accented by garnet and a hammered hoop.

Both these necklaces are available on the Crystal Allure Designs website.

Rich Autumn Colors in New Fall Jewelry

For the last few weeks I have been in a creation frenzy. With the cooler weather finally here (which some Rochestarians are not so happy about) I was finally able to get to work on some neglected jewelry designs.

All of these pieces, and then some, are now available on the website. And it’s not over yet….I still have many more designs that I planned on rolling out for the fall. So keep checking the website and blog for them.

I am a big fan, in both style and decorating, of warm, rich colors. And what better time of the year to really embrace these comforting colors than in the fall. With the exception of a few pieces, you will find a variety of necklaces and earrings incorporating a fall color scheme and (again for some pieces) a bolder design (using less chain).

One other constant theme in necklaces is the pendant style. I absolutely love teardrop pendants and in staying with this theme you will find in the coming month(s) at least 4-5 more new teardrop pendant necklaces on the website.

As with most of my designs, all the new pieces are limited edition. So please don’t wait to put your order in. It will be a rare instance if I am able to find a particular pendant again. Here we go…

When I saw this pendant, I immediately had a vision of how to use it in a necklace design. It is a stunning, rounded teardrop style pendant in a rich amethyst. I couldn’t resist accenting it with a small black onyx and to finish the style I used a 14k goldfilled textured chain to complement the pendant.

I’ve actually had these leaves for at least 8 or more months. When I saw them I just knew they would be an asset in whatever design they were used in. They have no shimmer and so I added a large genuine Swarovski crystal in a rich burgundy and then sealed the style with a complementary smokey topaz crystal. Even though these earrings are done, this style is not finished yet…a coordinating necklace will be posted soon.
