Style Snapshot: Sky-High Style
by Susanne Kathol, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

Demand is on the rise for celestial-themed accessories as consumers are looking to express spirituality, magic, wonder and a mystical feel through jewelry. Popular in the 1990s, this motif is emerging again in the form of suns, moons, stars and planets. Here are some design ideas and product suggestions for incorporating this sky-high style into jewelry designs.

Suns, moons and stars are hot design elements for bracelets, earrings, rings, anklets and necklaces this season. Available in beads, charms, pendants, drops, clasps and more, these celestial-themed components can be the focal point of a piece, the primary theme or a pleasing accent. Create simple pendant necklaces, charm bracelets, chandelier earrings with lots of star power or add a celestial-themed clasp to any piece. Choose from a wide selection of precious and plated metal in silver and gold, and antiqued metal finishes, for an infinite amount of looks and price points.

Blue and gold are the key colors in this celestial trend, representing a golden moon on a deep blue night sky. These colors explode into shades of orange, turquoise, yellow, red and metallics for stunning statements. Incorporate these colors into jewelry pieces using gemstones, Swarovski crystal and Celestial Crystal® for an on-trend appearance.

This trend also extends into natural elements such as semiprecious stones, gemstones and crystals. Celestial motifs combine with sapphire and citrine stones, turquoise, moonstone and lapis lazuli gemstones for out-of-this-world style. Stardust beads are popular as bright and shiny additions to designs and lava rock beads provide an extraterrestrial look to jewelry pieces. Designers are taking this celestial trend a step further by incorporating angels, fairies and goddesses into pieces. Find charms, pendants and more to add these sought-after motifs to jewelry.
