Do you dream OF colour?
Summer is about colour - fabulous, riotous colour. Warm sunny weather is a license to throw demure colour palettes out the (hopefully) open window and go bold! Go Bright. Be Electrifying!
If you are in love with colour - then wait till you see this - Swarovski Neon Pearls. Three new colours of "pearls" in colours so vivid, so intense, so incredibly summery - you can practically roast a marshmallow over them. You could definitely roast a marshmallow while wearing them. If these aren't a license to drink wine and eat s'mores - I don't know what is. (Actually, we could probably come up with a 3-page list of reasons to drink wine and eat s'mores.)
These are made by Swarovski - using the same techniques as their classic pearls - but don't let the name "pearl" let you think that these are intended to imitate pearls. Like the also-new Swarovski "Gem Pearls" - which are intended to resemble fine-grade, opaque gemstones - these are made to the same exacting standards as Swarovski's imitation pearls - complete with Swarovski crystal core and durable outer coating.
So while they are distinctly "unpearly" - they are definitely top-drawer quality!
If you want bright, vivacious colour - and top-quality, durable beads - in over-the-top neon colours - check these out! And feast your eyeballs on this weeks inspiration - a nummy piece of wrist candy if ever there was!
And speaking of the Gem Pearls - more of those have come in too - to expand those items!
Remember those cute little metal mesh beads that look like knitted pots? We have more of them, and now in colours and different sizes! These have a Pandora-sized hole, and super-lightweight and airy. And they are just fun to look at!
