Crystals Around the World ~

Welcome to April's Inspiration!

Austria may be one of Europe’s smallest countries, but it is also one of the most popular destinations in the world. Whether you’re traversing across its drawbridges or hiking up the Alps, the region's roaring waters and crisp mountain air will greet you as if you were home. The inspiration of these pieces is derived from a multitude of Austria’s most iconic wonders — deep valleys, vast farmland, whimsical woodlands, raging rivers, and of course, its majestic mountains.

The neutral and blue palette for this month is perfect for the majesty of the Austrian landscape. It exudes a feeling of freshness, water and sky, and the jewelry designs are crisp and fresh, too. Swarovski Create Your Style designers used TierraCast  ear wires and findings to create the waterfall of gorgeous crystals in the earrings.
