What’s Your Bead Mood?

what's your beading mood?

Bead Mood:

The bead that best fits your current mood.

 

We’ve heard that a person’s mood can influence his or her style of dress, so we figured if there’s a pair of pants that scream EDGY, then there must be a bead that screams ENERGETIC. We’ve taken four general moods (energetic, happy, relaxed, anxious) and determined the type of bead that best represents each.

 

Take a look below to find out which bead best fits your current mood/personality and give the corresponding jewelry designs a try on your own. Think of it as the next generation of mood jewelry!

 

Energetic

Swarovski Crystals

 

What screams energy more than sparkle and shine? Absolutely nothing! The precision-cut facets in the gem attract and emit light from all directions, just like your creative energy bouncing off the walls. If you’re considering how to best direct your enthusiasm, grab an assortment of Swarovski crystals that scream fun and design a brooch that matches your mood or add Swarovski shine to a bag you aren’t crazy about.

Anxious

Pearls

 

Has coordinating family summer outings put your mind in a state of exhausted stress? You’re not alone! There are ways to alleviate some of that tension. Jewelry making in general is a great way to relax and take your mind off your worries. But more specifically, jewelry making with pearls is as stress-free as it gets.

 

Pearls are classics for a reason; you know what you’re getting. They’re straightforward in their glamour and in their usage. Pearls require very little fuss to make something beautiful because they can stand on their own without too much frill. Pearls are perfect for your mood if you’re feeling a little anxious because it’ll take away the need to overthink. Create a new accessory with pearls if you want to design without the worry.
