This week we are totally inspired by the sparkle and shine of Swarovski crystals! If you aren’t familiar with them, these Austrian crystals are some of the most beautiful, colorful, and most versatile DIY elements we know. Adding jewels or gems to an article of clothing or a home decor item can instantly take it from boring basic to one-of-a-kind. Take a look at some of our favorite bedazzled pieces.
Circular jeweled embellishments were huge at this year’s Burberry Prorsum SS14 show. We’ve been seeing a lot of great DIYs using that pink embellished jacket as inspiration!
Crystal necklaces, headpieces, belts, and other assorted accessories are popular with brides because they add just the right amount of sparkle to their dresses. These high-fashion pieces may be a little too bold and heavy for most brides, but we love the look of these ornate accessories.
Headbands are one of the easiest ways, aside from regular jewelry, to inject some sparkle and shine into your look. We think crystal headbands look exquisite when paired with a messy updo.
So what do you think of these “shining stars”? Do bedazzles make your life more dazzling, or do you prefer a more understated embellishment?
