Summer Jewelry: Color and Shimmer

Summer signifies the return of showing bare skin to the world: freedom from layers of clothing as we wear shorts, tank tops and V-neck tops and dresses. Skin becomes the perfect canvas to showcase unique jewelry. Summer also signifies the return of color and shimmer to jewelry to accentuate fashions and complement tanned skin.

What better way to showcase your style than with unique, colorful, shimmering jewelry? Forever Fusions is a home-based artist studio owned by Chrisell Vasiliou. Chrisell hand-crafts brilliant jewelry designs using glass fusion. By fusing and vaporizing layers of colorful dichroic glass with super thin sheets of glass with metals, oxides or silica, she forms beautiful crystal works of art. The color wavelengths produced by this process produce jewelry that reflects a variety of shimmering hues depending on lighting and angle.

Chrisell transforms her pieces into:

  • Pendants
  • Earrings
  • Bracelets
  • Rings

Here is a pendant example that conjures images of sparkling swimming pools, a tropical beach scene or even a tie-dyed tank top. The hues in this piece created by Chrisell are absolutely beautiful.

This bracelet sample would be perfect to wear to a beach party. The dark blue background is highlighted with sunbursts of yellow and orange. Sporting this bracelet with your swimsuit coverup or sundress is sure to elicit Wow comments from your friends and family.

If pastels are more your style, you may be more drawn to a lighter piece that features a dominant image, like the butterfly pendant shown here.

Chrisell offers pre-made pieces or she can customize a unique design incorporating your favorite colors or designs. With affordable prices ranging from $35-$50, you may decide to order several different pieces to accentuate your summer skin and wardrobe. The best part is that literally no one will have the same jewelry as you – that’s just the nature of dichroic jewelry.
