Swarovski Around The World Trip to the Grand Canyon Necklace

This month, Swarovski is celebrating the Grand Canyon and its majestic beauty.  Our designer Lena Gillespie visited this sacred place and was clearly inspired.  We asked her for an interpretation on this months Crystals Around The World location and se submitted this necklace.    By the way, if you are wondering about the metal findings, this is what Lena does wen I give her a sample bag from @TierraCast.  Nothing is ever wasted.

What Lena thinks about her Crystals Around The World Grand Canyon necklace featuring Swarovski Bicones, TierraCast end caps and leather cord:

“I am totally in love with this piece…its been forming in my head ever since you handed me a bag of samples of TierraCast End Caps.. they are so beautiful but I only had one of each style and shape…but they remind me of southwest cowbells….and worked perfectly in this piece. I’m totally over the moon with this piece and will be creating one for me.”

The John Bead products Lena used to make her necklace are linked here.

The Earth’s history is truly like no other. Over millions and millions of years this land has formed and then reformed to reveal what we all know as the Grand Canyon.

The colorful stratified layers of rock composing the sides of the Grand Canyon change over the course of the day as the sun moves and the light transforms one scene into another leaving us with a view that takes your breath away. These textures and colors provided a boundless source of inspiration that inspired these pieces.

Swarovski Crystals Around the World – Costa Rica Earrings and Necklace Projects

Starting as underwater volcanoes which then surfaced over thousands and thousands of years, Costa Rica has evolved into one of the largest, lush ecosystems in the world. Imagine yourself rappelling down a waterfall, relaxing in hot springs, hiking along the rolling fog of the cloud forest or exploring the pink sandy beaches of the Guanacaste coastline. 

Theses adventures paired with rich tropical flora and fauna and soft sunsets over crystal blue water were the incredible inspiration for these pieces – and my version of ‘paradise’.

Swarovski Crystals Around the World – India Inspired Project Step by Steps

One of the oldest civilizations in the world, India is a mosaic of multicultural experiences and rich heritage. Extending from the snow-covered Himalayan mountains to the tropical rain forests of the south, it is impossible to ignore India’s mesmeric conflation of the old and the new. Walking through the bustling city streets you are greeted by a diverse variety of cuisines, arts, crafts, faiths, and nature.

Experiencing different textures, sounds and smells triggered the emotion that prompted these designs.
