Mandala Mantra: Discover our new trend pieces

They carry us off into another world and awaken our longing for warmth, inner balance and harmony: the pieces in our new „Mandala Mantra“ collection. Spiritual shapes and balanced, artistic patterns are bang on trend this spring. Find your inner self and carry this spirit into the outside world. The intricate ornaments are best combined with a streamlined, relaxed style. But, as with yoga, anything that you like and that’s good for you is allowed. And now, take up the sukhasana (cross-legged) position, breath in and out calmly and let our new favourites inspire you: An ultra-thin mandala coin set in an oriental shape and decorated with little rhinestones: wear this bracelet to bring good luck or have it with you as your own personal mantra. Om… More serenity, joy and vital energy – wearing this ring on your finger will remind you each day of your new resolutions. Wear your hair off your face more often and open up your perspective and your spirit. These little playful, ultra-thin stud earrings will give expression to your way of life. Dazzle during your mudras exercises! This rose gold-tone ring will make you shine in your finger yoga classes. Namaste! How do you like our new Mandala Mantra Collection? We’re dying to hear what you think!

Gift-Inspiration for your Valentine

We’re constantly wondering what we can buy for our favourite men for their birthday, Christmas or other special occasions that they’ll really love. Socks or a new pullover? No, much too old-fashioned! A new game for the console? Not again! Why don’t you try a great piece of jewellery for a change? The times are long gone when only women would get dressed up and adorn themselves with fine jewels! For men too, a smart appearance and elegant clothes are part of everyday life. And so one or two little accessories are not out of place here either. Our items from the latest men’s collection combine simple elegance, relaxed looks and cool material mixes. And since Valentine’s Day is practically on the doorstep, we’ve put together some of our favourites for you here: Strong wood and classic silver: this masculine necklace is a real head-turner! A casual bracelet in black rubber with silver elements decorated with steel. A great combination guaranteed to delight any man. Cool cufflinks – for real gentlemen. The combination of matt and shiny silver plate is stunningly eye-catching and will glam up any suit. Dare to wear studs! More and more men are wearing chic stud earrings. Give these to your partner and let him shine alongside you. What would your partner love best?

DIY: Home-made Valentine’s calendar for the person close to your heart

Valentine’s Day – some people look forward to it, others just want to pull the quilt over their head on this day. Whilst couples who are newly in love think about how they can spend this day together romantically, others wonder why they haven’t had that kind of luck and hang around smooching in the park. But let’s stop all this moping around! Just make Valentine’s Day a day when you do something nice for all the people that you like. Even if lots of people think that you shouldn’t need a special day for this, we actually forget to show our favourite people how much we value them in our everyday lives. And this is where we come in! We’ve adopted the nicest custom from Advent and changed it a bit. Why not just make a Valentine’s calendar for your favourite person? Fourteen cute little packages filled with sweet messages of love, little vouchers, candy and, of course, one or two pieces of jewellery will make the person close to your heart really smile! And it’s so easy! You’ll need: Lots of love Empty match boxes (you should also be able to get them in good craft shops) Glue, scissors and pencil Coloured cartridge paper, Washi tape, stickers and anything else your craft box might have. It’s almost too easy to need any written instructions. Because all you need to do for these sweet love packages is to let your creativity run wild. First cover the boxes with gift paper, patterned cartridge paper or particularly nice photos from your favourite magazine. The possibilities are endless. Then „pimp“ the packages with bright adhesive tapes, stickers, ribbons and anything else you have at hand. Then add the numbers 1-14. We were lucky and found little foam rubber numbers in our craft shop. But you could also draw the numbers on with felt pen. Finally, you just need to fill your Valentine’s calendar, of course. Here are a few examples: The delicate real silver chain with a heartbeat symbol from our new Valentine’s Day Collection makes an ideal surprise in your Valentine’s Day calendar – doesn’t it? Hello Beauty! Alongside these cute little heart earrings in real silver, your BFF will find another little message of love: Soul sisters forever!  Sugar! This jewellery set in 925 silver is just sooo lovely! We’re in love! What about you?   How do you like our Valentine’s calendar? Do you fancy making one like it? We’d love to receive your pictures and comments!

Greenery – We celebrate the 2017 Colour of the Year!

Every year, the colour research institute Pantone selects a new fashion colour, after it has travelled the whole world and viewed the most important fashion shows and trade fairs. The result in 2017 is „greenery“ – a fresh, yellow-green shade.  According to Pantone, this colour symbolises new beginnings and the reawakening of nature in spring. This sounds good, and we think it looks good too. And so decided we’d check out which pieces of jewellery were simply shouting „greenery“ at us. Whether it’s radiant green in spring, pistachio ice-cream green in summer, earthy khaki in autumn or dark bottle green in winter – greenery, with all its nuances, is always a good choice. But see for yourself: It’s a match! These two show us how beautifully shades of green go with antique gold. Bring on the spring! If you add rich green to delicate blue, the result is this is the radiant shade of turquoise. We’ve decided not to be too strict and have added this stylish ethnic-style bangle to our list of greenery favourites  Playing with colours: Fresh green harmonises wonderfully with elegant grey! We love it! How do you like the 2017 colour of the year? Have you got it in your wardrobe or in your home furnishings? We’d love to hear your views!

Our Top 5 Resolutions for the New Year!

We all know it! The countdown has barely finished, and we’ve only just welcomed in the New Year – and everyone’s coming out with New Year resolutions. And it goes on for days to start with. After you’ve wished each other a happy 2017, people start asking about the goals that you’ve undertaken for the next 365 days. It’s as if it were a mortal sin simply to wait and see what happens in life! Right at the top of most people’s lists is the resolution to lose weight. It’s no coincidence that lots of fitness studios are trying to lure us in with special offers now. So we all decide to take more exercise, eat more healthily, cut out sweets, go shopping less, and so on and so forth! And then? We all abandon our good New Year’s intentions again in February and just carry on like last year. But that’s not what we’re going to do! Because however ambitious and motivated most people are initially – once we’ve got caught up in everyday life again, we’re happy to take a quick drive out for a takeaway pizza after work. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the resolutions that our colleagues here in the office have adopted for 2017. You’ll see that it shouldn’t take too much effort to keep them! Relax more often!  The world won’t collapse if things aren’t always done IMMEDIATELY! We intend to pause every now and again, take time for ourselves and relax on the sofa with a good book. And when we do, we can snuggle up in a cosy knitted scarf too. See the sea! Admittedly, this resolution could be a little bit trickier to keep, depending on where you live. But you don’t actually need to go to the seaside! A trip out to a lake is just as good – you simply need to get out more. Alone or with your best friends, in summer or winter – a day by the sea or a lake clears the head. And we always take along our favourite necklace with the sweet little ship pendant. Fall in love! And we don’t just mean you singles out there! You don’t necessarily have to fall in love with someone else. Check out how you see yourself! Not with loving eyes, maybe? It’s time to change that in the New Year and love yourself a little bit more! For example, why not give yourself a treat with this sweet little heart set  Take more time for our favourite people! The most important thing that we have in life is our health and our favourite people! We’ve resolved that we’ll look after our nearest and dearest more again in 2017. Simply being there for each other and taking time to experience things that are a bit more unusual. The lovely pieces that the two girls are wearing in the picture here are home-made! You can obtain the materials for this at the P.cookery! Write more letters! „Write letters more often, because it’s not very likely that you’ll ever discover long-lost WhatsApp messages in the attic!“ We recently found this scribbled in marker pen on a post box somewhere. And it’s sooo true! So let’s pick up a pen now and again in the New Year and give people lots of pleasure with a letter! What are your resolutions for the New Year? Tell us here or on Facebook! We look forward to hearing your ideas!

Our diamond DIY – for even more bling under the Christmas tree

We’re not just mad about gifts at the moment – we’ve also gone DIY crazy. We’ve tried out this diamond-shaped gift packaging for ourselves, and we really love it. The best thing about it is that our diamond won’t just moulder away in a corner after the presents have been handed out. It will carry on straight to the festive Christmas tree, where it will be a beautifully glittering highlight. You’ll need the following for our DIY creation:  Our DIY template, which you can download here immediately.  White card or firm paper, to print out the template.  Glitter board of your choice. We’re still in love with our wonderful glittering versions in blue, red and silver.  Pencil, ruler and shears for drawing and cutting everything out perfectly. Please allow plenty of time.  Depending on taste and your choice of board, a good craft adhesive or that famous multipurpose weapon, the hot glue gun.  Matching gift ribbon for the bow and later for hanging on the tree. Once you’ve got all the materials and put your printer on, of course, you can get going. Print the template onto firm paper (or board) and cut it out carefully. Then you can take your lovely glitter paper or board, draw around the template and cut it out, being really careful once again. Well, you’ve done the most difficult thing now – that is, you haven’t produced any wavy lines as you cut out the shape. Now turn on the hot glue gun or, if you prefer craft adhesive, remove the cap from the tube. As soon as the glue gun has reached operating temperature or the adhesive tube is ready to go, you can get going on the sticking. Most importantly, try not to get glue all over your fingers. J Gradually dab glue onto all the flaps and carefully press them together. When you’ve stuck all the sides together and you can begin to see the beautiful shape of your diamond, leave the hexagonal cover open. This is where you’ll pop in the sparkling earrings for your best friend or the necklace for your beloved sister for the time being. Our ice flower duo is a real celebratory highlight. We’ve put together our bracelet with crystal stones and facetted pearls in delicate shades of light blue and the matching necklace with flowers. Our elegantly glittering diamond is just the right gift packaging for this. Or would you prefer the silver-tone statement necklace? A multitude of facetted glass stones creates the magic of this magnificent piece and shines as brightly as we do. Opulent earrings also make an enchanting gift. We’ve gone for these lovely designs full of glittering rhinestones and polished stones in shades of white and pink. Which pieces of jewellery and accessories are just waiting to be individually packed by you?

Individual teabags – an enchanting DIY gift

We’ve tested a new DIY idea for you and have joined the ranks of the teabag designers. Yes, really – designers. Teabag throwing is not something we go in for. These cute little teabags in the shape of a Christmas tree or a star will be enchanting at all your pre-Christmas tea parties. You’ll be able to surprise your favourite people and bring a happy smile to their excited faces. You’ll just need the following to help you do it: Tea filters, available in any drugstore or supermarket An embroidery needle and food-safe string – we mean the type of string that grandma used for her roulades Loose tea for the teabag. A pair of scissors to cut the finished work of art to size A little cardboard tag, which you can decorate to your heart’s delight A teapot and mugs for complete enjoyment Now you can get going. Get hold of a teabag, needle and thread and sew a Christmas tree or a star onto the teabag. Remember to leave enough space open at the top end of the teabag. Because that’s where you’re going to fill the bag with your favourite tea. So as soon as you’ve finished sewing, add the tea and then sew up the remaining side. And then, very carefully, use the scissors to cut out the shape you’ve designed. Then quickly sew on the cardboard tag, with a little message on it, and your unusual teabag is ready to give as a present. But there’s something missing, isn’t there? No gift à la Bijou Brigitte could be perfect without some lovely jewellery. Before the festivities, we recommend wonderfully glittering real silver jewellery. We’ve captured some sparkling stars from the sky for you, and this cute pair are hanging from an elegant silver necklace. Surrounded by little rhinestones, a single star decorates the bracelet with facetted pearls. The real silver pendant featuring a Christmas angel hugging a heart is just too cute. Maybe it’s a special message for your favourite people? Or maybe you’d prefer a pendant in the shape of an angel decorated with little rhinestones? We just can’t decide … Maybe you’re more a fan of clear lines. Naturally, we’ve also chosen some wonderful pieces for you too. Two round pendants, one with a smooth surface and the other full of rhinestones, decorate this elegant long necklace. And the relatively plain double ring with little rhinestone elements goes with it perfectly. So, have we given you an idea or two? Then get creative over a cup of tea and post your designs when you’ve finished them.

We’re starting to get into the Christmas mood, and we’d like to sweeten your anticipation with a very special DIY project for St Nicholas‘ Day. Santa Claus is coming to town! But has everyone been neat and tidy and cleaned their shoes properly? 😉 We’ll show you how you can create the shoe of the year in just a short time and turn yourself into a real glitter fairy. Your party shoes, or even the pumps you don’t wear any more, will be wonderfully eye-catching! Even Santa Claus will be dazzled. All that you need: a pair of shoes: pumps or high-heels spray adhesive glitter some old newspaper drying time Pour yourself a mug of mulled wine or a hot lumumba and then get yourself outside. Because you need to do this in well-ventilated surroundings! Firstly, clean the shoes well and then place some newspaper inside for protection. As soon as everything’s ready, you can start spraying on the adhesive. But don’t take too long, because it dries very quickly. Finally, you only need to sprinkle everything with lovely glitter powder. W simply covered the whole shoe in glitter. J And there you have the perfect eye-catching accessory for St Nicholas‘ Day! An absolute must-have for any fashionista. This matt black snake chain is crowned by dazzling black acrylic stones arranged in an opulent flower design. Don’t you just love this gorgeous creation? After all, you need to be rewarded for your efforts.  A sparkling piece that really loves to be put on show. This haematite-coloured bangle would be a great partner for the next Christmas party, wouldn’t it? We hope that you liked our last-minute ideas for St Nicholas‘ Day. Maybe you’ll show us the shoes you’ve created on Instagram.  We look forward to it.

DIY-Advent wreath for people in a hurry

Now things are really moving towards Christmas in leaps and bounds. This Sunday is already the first Sunday in Advent! Apart from home-made biscuits, a cup of hot chocolate and a good book, what is the absolute must-have on such a relaxing day? An Advent wreath, of course! We too wanted to create a bit of a Christmas mood in the office, and so we’ve come up with the fastest DIY Advent wreath ever. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t look stuffy, and that you’ll probably find almost everything you need to make it at home or in the garden. You’ll need: 4 glasses / lanterns of various sizes Fir sprigs (ideally conifers) Pliers Spray adhesive These wonderfully fragrant lanterns are ready made! First, take a long winter walk and collect a few fir sprigs. Ideally, conifers are best for your unconventional Advent wreath, because these twigs can be easily laid around the glasses. When you get back home, you can make yourself a nice hot cup of tea and then get going. J Cut the conifer twigs into smaller pieces and spray them generously with the adhesive. Ideally, you should stand outside in the fresh air for this. Then you can stick the greenery around the glass. Finally, cut off any parts that are sticking out and repeat the process with the other glasses. After all, we want to have four little lights burning before Christmas. Advent is also the time of year when we think about what we’d like to give our loved ones at Christmas. You’re bound to make your best friend’s eyes light up with this lovely jewellery set. Instead of racking your brain about what gifts to choose for your loved ones, you could always write a wish list for yourself for once. This anthracite-coloured wrist watch with little black rhinestones and the matching bracelet should definitely be on the list! What do you mean, Father Christmas doesn’t exist? But he’s working here: http://www.bijou-brigitte.com/ 😉 For an Advent celebration with friends or a Christmas party with work colleagues: this arm jewellery set looks stunning, whatever the festive occasion. Worn individually, the sparkling rhinestone watch, closed infinity bangle or simple, open bracelet are also ideal for everyday wear, of course! We hope that we’ve been able to inspire you with this pre-Christmas decoration. We hope you have a lovely first Sunday in Advent, and look forward to seeing you again here next week!
