Although I travel around the world and all the cultures inspire me to design my jewelry, in springtime I get all my inspiration from scenes something like 200 meters from my home. I live in the middle of the bulb or flower fields and the colors at the moment of those fields are stunning.
The jewelry designers found their inspiration this year in nature and heaven (I will write a blog post about that next week). They designed jewelry with real flowers and they used flower shaped material to make the women more beautiful as they already are. When you love nature, you will love ‘flower jewelry’!
Next season’s trend
In a few blog posts, I already give the tip, that you don’t have to follow all the trends where the jewelry designers come up with. You will get bankrupt and not necessarily all the trends will fancy or suit you.
I show you the trends and you can:
- Decide you purchase some trendy stuff, which means low quality and cheap
- Look in your jewelry box and find a piece of jewelry that matches the trend. Like a pair of earrings in the shape of a flower or leave. And you can wear this piece more often
- Think…. I want some new piece of jewelry and I love nature and flowers. Search for some great pieces, you really really love. You must be sure that you love that piece also when the trend is over. And You will wear it when the trend is over. And you purchase that one.
#3 is the best tip I can give you! Jewelry is emotion and you have to feel great wearing it. And it has to match your style and taste. And when I can help you with any advice, just let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Back to the flower jewelry!
Climate change is worrying. In the USA snow falls and keeps falling, even in April. In the Netherlands, the flower parade in my home town will be one week earlier than planned. The flowers are in full bloom and they cannot keep them fresh until the planned date. There are floodings in Brazil, storms in East Africa and more climate disasters happen.
Due to all these people are more interested, more worried in nature. And fashion and jewelry designers pick this ‘feelings’ up and design clothing and jewelry using the theme ‘nature’ of ‘flowers’.
That means that you find (a lot more than usual) pieces of jewelry made of flowers, using resin to put the flowers in. Or they use the material, like gemstones and silver in the shape of flowers. Or they use natural colors and material.
Let me show you some examples:
And don’t forget… Mother’s Day will be here soon. Most of the time you give your mother or mother in law (or you get) flowers. Maybe this time you can give her a piece of ‘flower’ jewelry. You can find some in my collection and when you cannot find what you want, just let me know and I design and make it for you.
