With the rapid approach of autumn, it’s time to think about fall fashions. The current economic climate makes it tough to fill the closet with a whole new wardrobe, but a crafty gal can easily update her old fashions with new jewelry. Beadalon has some great new products you can use to make stylish designs that will bring you right up to date.
First up is the gorgeous new 49 strand Beadalon Champagne wire.This color is so stunning it’s sure to capture attention. The bracelet in the photo uses a four wire woven technique I created with a children’s Cat’s Cradle game in mind. The combination of crystal and earthy porcelain beads works nicely for the darker color palette of fall. Two sprigs of exposed wire and bead fringes give this design optimal movement.
The new 7-strand SilverGold wire is right on trend with the re-emergence of two tone looks on the runways. You can pair this with either silver or gold or combine a variety of metallic elements to beautiful effect. I used a soft and peachy palette with pops of teal crystals and added an array of beaded fringes for a dimensional effect. Because this wire is so supple and fluid, this design is very easy to wear.
Katie Hacker created this lovely choker that utilizes the new Beadalon 19 strand Wire Variety Packs and as you can see, we were both drawn to that teal and neutral combination. I love how this necklace cascades across your neckline. What a perfect design to fill in an open sweater or to add some excitement to the ubiquitous big white shirt that’s everywhere this season.
There is so much to explore in the Beadalon product range, a fashionista on a budget should have absolutely no trouble looking tres chic this season.
Until next time...bead on with your bad selves.
