Tilted dice – the perfect focal for cuffs

It may be raining today but there is still plenty of summer to go and lots of time to make this beautiful cuff bracelet. The focal crystal is new this year and part of the Swarovski Designer Edition from the S/S 2018 Innovations. These amazing crystals were designed by Chris Bangle, the legendary former chief designer at BMW.

Tiny rondelles and light blue iridescent pearls complete the design

 

I’m such a fan of macramé especially the micro size, using S-lon cord, as it makes up into such fabulous jewellery. Two of the top trends for this year – statement cuffs and macramé work amazingly well for this design.

I’ve added tiny Swarovski rondelle beads for contrast but you could use bicones instead.

These amazing sculptural crystals were designed by Chris Bangle, the legendary former chief designer at BMW and include the tilted chaton and tilted spike. The colours are applied to part of the crystal to enhance the amazing 3D effect.

This cuff design was inspired by Swarovski’s theme ‘No normal’ which is all about embracing differences, whether it is design, perspectives or life itself.

Tilted stones are part of the Fancy Stone family of Swarovski crystals and available from Jilly Beads. You’ll also find they’ve got the 3mm pearls in iridescent light blue too!
