 5-Star Style: Jewelry Set with Celestial-Themed Accents 

Project CB37 Necklace and Earring Set
Blue Skies By Gulten Dye

by Susanne Kathol, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

This jewelry set illuminates star-studded style and is ready for it all--day or evening, formal or casual attire. It truly twinkles thanks to the well-placed Swarovski prong-set rhinestone headpins and Swarovski crystal AB rondelle accents. This design is right on trend with its marble patterning, gold-colored theme and celestial motifs.

The highly visible, lightweight acrylic beads have hand-applied marble-like patterns, giving them a distinctive quality at a budget-friendly price. And according to WGSN, the worldwide leader in fashion trend forecasting, marble (or marble-inspired prints and patterns) are increasingly being used in accessories, becoming a popular go-to material for fashion and jewelry designers alike.

This set delivers on the gold-colored jewelry trend we’re seeing. The gold-plated brass chain includes 8mm flat rounds that are attached with textured figure-eight connector links that open and close so no cutting is required to make any length necklace or bracelet. This combined with a lobster claw clasp closure creates an adjustable bracelet and necklace that can be worn by all. The stardust beads are setting the gold standard of style, adding additional texture and dimension.

Celestial motifs, such as moons and stars, are prominent in current jewelry fashion. The acrylic star beads mixed with the sphere-like Swarovski crystal rounds and stardust bead drops are right in line with recent style reports. Following a common design principle known as the rule of odds, the five stars found on the necklace create a brilliantly balanced statement. Any fashionista's wish come true, this set combines well with both patterned and solid-colored clothing, as the rich color tones ground the pieces. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself hanging this necklace on your dressing area mirror or placing it on top of the jewelry box--it will light up your day even as you walk by.

Create this design today and see for yourself why we’re giving it a five-star style rating.
