Bling It On

Dripping crystal jewelry first made an appearance on the Spring 2019 runways and quickly took over Instagram.

Modern Pearls

Pearls are back, but this season's are nothing like your grandmother's pearls. From delicate pearl hoops to ear cuffs and sculptural bracelets, the classic piece is getting a modern, reimagined update for spring.

'80s Hearts

Show some love in the form of chunky, oversized heart earrings. From the runways of Balenciaga and Escada to the cool girls of Instagram, the '80s-inspired trend is already proving to be one of the season's most fun.

By The Sea

The shell jewelry craze isn't slowing down anytime soon. This nostalgic jewelry trend is here to stay for the warm weather.

Black and silver netted necklace

This week I've been working on two custom projects, and I hope you can see from this what a difference the beads make!  They can change the mood, style and degree of formality as the beads change.

The black and silver netted necklace above was designed to be worn as both casual as well as dressy.  You can see it can't you?  with a white T-shirt and jeans as well as a LBD — perfect!

The customer and I sat and discussed what she was looking for, I showed her some samples and then came up with this design.  She was very pleased.

This necklace isn't finished yet — look forward to seeing the finished product next week — but it is based on my Turquoise/Coral Statement necklace (https://www.murielbadinellidesigns.com/shopnecklaces/turquoise-coral-statement-necklace).  See the difference in style, even though they are the same design? This one is soft and elegant, while the turquoise is bolder, fun and more casual!

I hope this give you some ideas for your own custom designed jewelry — I'll be happy to help!

'Till next time!
