Fantasticly Sparkly Jewelry From Diadem Jewels

I was so delighted to find Diadem Jewel's shop during a recent 'sparkly' search.  Her fine jewelry is a real treat for the eye and has an elegant fantasy feel to it that I really loved.  I asked Lauren, the creator of these amazing pieces, what inspires her work.  Here's what she had to say;

 My pieces are inspired by music, nature, and fantasy (fairy tales and such).  All my jewels are sterling silver or gold filled and I am very open to mixing colors that most people wouldn't.

My favorite Fairy Tales are Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. None of my pieces are exactly inspired by a single story, just tales in general. Something a fairy princess or a magical being would wear.  A lot of it comes from what I think elves, faeries, pixies would wear. I mix those ideas
with contemporary/modern looks.

My favorite beads are gems but I also like to use swarovski crystals occasionally.  Sometimes a piece is inspired solely on a bead.  I feel that one of a kind beads have a story of their own to tell.

 I put a lot of time and feelings into every piece that I create which is why I don't make many at a given time- this is why they're extra special, because they're one of a kind.  I usually don't remake a piece and my hands do the work, none of my designs are ever sketched out, they come to me on a whim.

Thank you so much, Lauren, for helping to make my unapologetic blog look amazing! To see more of Lauren's magical, elegant jewelry please visit her lovely shop at Diadem Jewels
