BAROQUE BEAD & BAROQUE MIRROR FANCY STONE - Harken back to an era of filigree and lace! The ornate Baroque Fancy Mirror Stone is the perfect vintage design featuring a table-back for custom laser engraving. Lightweight and low profile, it can be easily integrated into rings or earrings in addition to textile designs. The Baroque Bead pays homage to the grandeur and beauty of history in radiant crystal detailing. Blend it into luxurious bead-string flows or create floral and ray shaped sew-on patterns. Light, airy and flat, it adds little additional weight to any finished product.
GANG STAR - SKULL FLAT BACK & CRYSTAL IRIDESCENT BLUE PEARLS - The urban landscape is in the throes of a street-style revolution best summed up in the phrase: “Keep it real.” Inspired by the hip-hop, sporty, rap culture, the look is expressed in bold gold statement pieces illustrated by oversized charms dangling from chains. The body has become a billboard with thoughts and standpoints scrawled in rebellious graffiti-style typography on clothing and jewelry, conveying a “don’t mess with me” attitude. Holding back is no longer an option—it is time to be heard. The focus on street culture has given rise to a tough street look that is sweeping the design world. The Skull Flat Back is the perfect match for edgier styles. The new Crystal Iridescent Blue Pearls reflect the emerging gender-neutral, active-streetwear style fusion; launched in two tones, they symbolize companionship and belonging.
NO NORMAL - FANCY STONES & SQUAR, BASE & PYRAMID FLAT BACKS - The new value revolution has begun. Labels are being eradicated, hierarchies broken down and conventions challenged. “Anti-fashion” is the prevailing mood, with the focus on seasonless, genderless clothes, as the concept of fashion is stripped back to the essentials. Past categories are now too narrow to accommodate tomorrow’s society. There is a desire for greater kindness in our personal dealings and simplicity in our daily lives; this means embracing our difference in the search for a new, more inclusive perspective.
Designs deliberately break convention and celebrate human imperfection. Space and color appear warped, creating a futuristic optical illusion. The Chris Bangle Designer Edition, featuring the new Tilted Chaton, Tilted Spike and Tilted Dice Fancy Stones, can be used as a pendant centerpiece for rings or earrings, or as part of an elaborate futuristic textile design. The Square Family’s Pyramid, Square and Base Flat Back reflect the new design principles of flexibility and modularity, offering endless ways to create mold-breaking surface effects.
