CosmoStyle Boho Traveler Jewelry

A hint of the Southwest adds spark to this mini-mood – red agates representative of a rocky desert landscape, hammered gold adding organic texture and a hint of glitz providing the always-necessary sparkle.

These pieces are all part of the brand-new CosmoStyle Jewelry “Boho Traveler-Cali” line, which has gotta be my fav look (who would have guessed though?!)…I designed it to incorporate versatile pieces with plenty of earthy-chic style. Inspired by festival fashion, classic bohemian elements like crescents, faux leather and feathers blend with semiprecious gemstones and oxidized finishes, making for total mixed-media goodness! The Luna Cuff and Ring are the perfect statement jewelry pieces for any summer look, while the Sienna Crescent Wrap Bracelet and Necklace add a bit of edge to your outfit. They’re offered in a variety of different colors and gemstones – yes, there’s black of course! To get you in the full mood, I made a mini-lookbook vid on my YT, also attached at the bottom of this post.

And if boho is not your style, no worries. Preppy more your vibe? “American Prep” is my modern take on Audrey Hepburn/Cher Horowitz style. Cue the contemporary pearls, sophisticated sparkles and red, white and blue baubles! “Zen” is all about aromatherapy jewelry and wellness; minimal-chic pieces with natural gemstones and lava beads make for double-duty jewelry. Read all about the spike diffusers (my must-have!!! I use lavender and peppermint) and aromatherapy jewelry here! If you want to go totally glam, choose something from “VIP”; the VIP look was designed by my colleague Theresa Lirov. The Double Take Statement Necklace is to die for, providing some maximum-impact sparkles! Happy shopping!

Gold Rush Necklace - Quiet Lion Creations

Stardust Choker by Quiet Lion Creations

Pyrite is quite possibly the newest “it” stone. Move over mystic crystal quartz, amethyst with your deep jewel-tone hues, these little {faux} gold nuggets came to play. Looking part “ordinary rock” and part 24k Magic, their rustic-chicness is somewhat neo-sophisticated, is it not?  I mean, it’s all about embracing imperfect perfections these days…..

Deciding to pair with something just as earthy, hemp seemed like a good compliment to a metallic palette. Usually macrame is not my go-to technique….but don’t worry. Well, ‘ya can’t actually call this “macrame”…..it’s literally a bunch of woven strands grouped together by embossed metal beads. A seed bead tassel adds a bit of a fiesta on your chest-a…..(might have to cue the laugh track on that one).

I’m getting my YT vid up for this SOON – was trying to be lazy and do a written tutorial, but it was getting confusing af. So, a lovely step-by-step video will be gracing your inboxes soon – have you signed up for my mailing list?

Check back next week!

Dripping with cosmic crystals and dipped in stardust sparkles, this galaxy-chic choker set is probably one of my favs yet! You can’t go wrong with anything slightly mystic – moon and stars are icons that I don’t think will ever go out of style! Slightly Stevie Nicks gypsy meets Space Oddity in vibe, it’s a great update to a simple choker.

We all need shortcuts sometimes – if you’re a jewelry designer or beader, you know that most projects take hella time. For those instances where we don’t have hours to create a project, I like starting with bases and embellishing. Start with a plain rhinestone choker base (find it here!) and decorate with charms, dripping chain and more crystals. I used 4mm jump rings to add delicate cable chain and star drops down the whole length of the choker. Cut shorter pieces of chain and add randomly into the piece, but it helps to keep the look a bit asymmetrical, for an edgier vibe. Create the matching earring stud with another moon charm, beaded links and Swarovski drop. The front/back effect is super trendy right now – to create decoration on the back of an earring, simply use the butterfly back and attach another 4mm jumpring in the loop. Then, add your charm decoration. DIY studs are a cool update to normal drop earrings – simply look for the bases at your local craft store, or find them online here!

If cosmic is not really your mood, use different charms or crystals for multiple looks! Spikes would of course look great, or even or go with faceted briolettes for a dripping icicle look.
