I get inspired

Like most of you (I assume) I at times surf around quite a bit looking for beautiful and/or inspiring jewelry pieces. On my computer I have a folder with pictures of things that I get inspired by. It is often only a detail that interests me. Like a color combo, or a nicely laid out color scheme, how materials meet each other, an interesting assembly method, or a connection between two parts and so on. But sometimes I find things where everything is just simply fantastic to me. The whole piece! So now I thought I'd share with you a few such jewelry pieces. I find them all particularly awesome and inspiring.

Most of the time I am good at naming the pictures after the maker of the piece when I save them to my computer, as a way of being able to remember and for future tracking. But sometimes I miss out on that. If you see a piece in the collection below, that lacks a name or link for the maker, and you happen to know who it is, please let me know. I also really hope no one will take offence by me showing your piece here. If you do, I am am truly sorry, and please let me know and I will take it away directly.

Necklace by Shyme Design, Dalarna, Sweden

Lariat necklace by Lorelei Eurto, USA

Necklace by Rokdarbi from Latvia, Europe

Bracelet by Tammy Antoinette of Painted Metal. I also adore this photo. Unfortunately I could not find a currently valid link to a shop or blog that would take you to her. She used to be on Etsy. I did find her on Facebook however if you are interested.

Necklace. I am sorry, but I don't know who made this. It's been in my inspiration folder for a loooong long time. And I still love it. I do remember the designer had made the two brushed silver beads herself. Please let me know if you know who it is.

Thank you Cilla W! It is definitely Kelly Baldwin.

Bracelet by Lorelei Eurto, USA

Necklace by Elly Snare, United Kingdom

Hope you enjoyed this!
Have a great day!

All my best,

They are all lovely. I love the iridescence of the beads in the first piece. I have 1 bead like that in a bracelet I bought years ago and have been trying ever since to by some. A strand in England was 50 pounds..I didn't buy it....still don't know the real name of them! Thanks for sharing some inspiration.

Lorelei Eurto said...

aww, thanks Malin! I am happy to know that my designs inspire you!!

Alice said...

Wow, what gorgeous pieces! Like you, I keep an inspiration folder of pieces I love.

Thanks for sharing yours with us.

Wow Malin, what wonderful pieces to be inspired by. This is a good idea and if you don't mind I would like to adopt it for myself. I see inspiration everywhere and sometimes when I think of it and have the chance I take pictures or I just make a mental note of the piece.

Hi Malin,
Your favorite color chunk necklace is one of my all time favorites too!
It is unmistakably Kelly Baldwin's.
All are beautiful choices.

Such a beautiful curation here Malin. I love them all but the gorgeous turquoise cuff, and Lorelei's two owl pieces (also some of my favourites) really jump out at me. You should do more of these posts, it;s so great to find these new people!

What an honor to be included among all the gorgeous pieces, Malin! You made my day! Stort tack! :)

Jenni: the large round beads in the necklace are bought as opalite glass and I did a search on Etsy for that and got some results:
