Capturing the spirit of nature for organic jewelry designs
Earliest man, in search of a tool to help secure, haul and build, found his answer in nature and twisted together vines and plant fibers to create the first rope. Similarly, humans have always been drawn to nature when creating personal decoration. Jewelrope, a unique component that is as mysterious and flexible as nature itself, rediscovers rope as a motif poised to inspire exquisite organic shapes in jewelry design.
Luxury fashion is no stranger to the rope motif as an enduring trend. Chanel transformed it into a statement design element with the quilted shoulder bag with rope chain shoulder strap, and by reflecting it in the famous ‘linked logo’. Rope motifs are also popular in jewelry, accessories, belts, and sandals.
Jewelrope is fashioned from silver, one of earth’s most precious metals. Silver is soft, flexible, and adaptable, can be plated in a variety of tones, and is a favorite creative material for today’s jewelry-making artists. The component combines a 925 sterling silver chain with 2.35mm faceted Swarovski Zirconia beads mysteriously blended into its structure. The result is a tantalizing glimpse of ‘peek-a-boo’ shine from the stones of different colors that can beautifully contrast with the plated or un-plated metal.
Jewelry designers with a flair for creating organic, gently flowing silhouettes and curves, utterly feminine and reminiscent of sensual, romantic styles with silk, lace and delicate embroidery, will be drawn to the unique component that is now available from Swarovski Gemstones.
