New Press Releases

(Grants Pass, Oregon)--It's never too early to plan for a fashionable holiday--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's favorite beading and jewelry supply company, has uncovered what's hot for the 2008 holiday season--bold jewelry, rich jewel tones and sparkling accessories.

It's easy to follow the key looks, just choose the elements for your designs. From bold Swarovski crystal pendant components to large Celestial Crystal® beads, faceted gemstones to faceted acrylics, the holiday season is about making you feel great in affordable style.

Jewel tones--most notably sapphire, emerald, amethyst, ruby and citrine--are the holiday's key colors. Surround the rich tones with gold-colored findings, such as chain, bead caps and Lazer Lace™ components, for glamorous jewelry designs.

Earrings are the center of attention with the chandelier-style most prominent--the longer the better. Faceted earrings catch the light and pair well with holiday up-dos. Styles also show up-dos with a brooch of glistening jewels and rhinestones lending a festive feeling to an ensemble. Coordinate with an over-sized ring.

Enter holiday parties with confidence wearing layers of pearls or a bib-style necklace. The bold bib-inspired look uses multiple large components to line the neck, graduating downward for a retro-glam style. Use dramatic necklaces to dress-up the basic black dress.

Accessories seen on the wrist include cuff-style wooden bracelets embellished with sparkling flat-back crystals and loose, baroque styles accented with dark-colored pearls or chain. If you're looking for a functional wrist accessory--the clutch is the ''must-have'' holiday handbag--glistening with sequins and jewels.
