Instagram Favourites June

Time’s run away with us… Have we really gone past the end of June? Once again, it’s time to take stock and to check out which items of jewellery and which pictures you liked best on our Instagram channel over the last month. As always, you let us have plenty of comments and likes  We really love thinking about where and how we can take shots of our little treasures for you, and we’re massively delighted that you’re pleased with the results. Thanks! Your undisputed favourite in June was the cakepop picture – taken at our Press Day at the beginning of the month. And yes, they tasted as good as they looked. Stupidly, we promised “cupcakes” in our posting text.  Cakepops, cupcakes, popcakes – it’s easy to get muddled up …   Luckily, you put it right straight away!  Second place went to this stylish statement piece with the appropriate name of Shining Light – a slightly shorter necklace in antique gold with facetted stones in shades of nude plus salmon-coloured maxi-stones. The absolute highlights here are the tiny rhinestone decorations. This short gemstone necklace also appealed to our little office flamingo, who then managed to creep onto the photo with it  Would you like one too? But this pair of earrings is enchanting too! So much so that we’re showing it you for the second time. A must-have for this summer! Would you like to see more, give out hearts and add your comments? Just follow us on Instagram @bijoubrigitte

Cancer (22 June – 23 July)

Sensitive Cancerians not only make really good friends – they’re also in good company. The enchantingly beautiful Gisele Bündchen celebrates her birthday under this water sign. The Cancerian’s metal is silver-coloured, which is what Tom Brady naturally went for when he selected her magnificent wedding ring. Gisele and the other Cancerians will find it especially easy to choose other accessories this season. Subtle pastel shades such as delicate green and light pink not only go brilliantly with your star sign – they’re also bang on trend! Every detail is important to choosy Cancerians, and so they’ll find this romantic necklace particularly enchanting. The rose quartz, the stone of love, glows with all its natural power and intensifies the sensitivity of Cancerians. The nostalgic antique gold colour of the chain and setting give this item of jewellery a unique vintage look that’s bound to attract every glance. The simple design and the soft pink with its delicate graining will round off your casual summer look of jeans and a top, but can also add an elegant accent to the LBD.

DIY: Golden pineapple for your wall

Last week, we promised to bring you another little DIY article! Here it is!  The pineapple template is not just ideal for adding our favourite fruit to t-shirts – it’s just as easy to create a stylish picture for the wall with the simplest of tools. To give as a present, or keep for yourself, or maybe both?  All you need is our pineapple template, a picture frame, a piece of firm paper, a sharp knife and the spray paint of your choice. Click on the pineapple and you’ll get the pineapple:  And off we go: First you need to download the template and print it onto A4 paper.  Then using the sharp knife, carefully cut along the contours. You’ll need to be patient here – maybe your favourite music might help a bit!?  Once the template is finally finished, you can place it onto the firmer piece of paper – it’s a good idea to fix it in place with some sticky tape to stop it slipping. And then it’s time to get down to business. Fling open all the windows, maybe put on an old t-shirt and spread out some newspaper to protect your working surface. Then start to spray from a distance of about 20 cm. Now carefully remove the template and leave the picture to dry well before framing it. Important: You need to find a nice, sunny spot in your home for your pineapple! In our house, we’ve found a lovely little spot on the jewellery chest. Have fun copying our idea!

Create your Tropical Style!

Can a fruit be bang on trend! Of course! The pineapple has been more than just something to eat for ages – it’s used for decoration, as a motif for posters, bedlinen, mobile phone cases and much more. Naturally, the trend hasn’t passed Bijou Brigitte by either, and so you’ll find it, for example, as a pendant on necklaces and bracelets.  The pineapple has been our most loyal companion for days and has had to serve as a photo model for a few shoots – and now it’s part of a great DIY project for you. With a little patience and a few simple resources, you can create your next favourite top and turn every head at the next summer party! Click on the pineapple and you’ll get the pineapple:  Step by step to your favourite top Gather together the following items: a loosely fitting t-shirt (ideally in white) A4 adhesive film the pineapple template, printed out two little sponges (e.g. washing up sponges) tracing paper Fabric paint Sharp knife Pencil Cutting base Instructions: First download the pineapple and print it onto A4. Using the tracing paper, transfer the pineapple to the adhesive film. Now you need to have a bit of patience! Cutting out the contours of the pineapple is a bit fiddly, but just think how great the result will be at the end of it! Now comes the part that’s most fun: Painting the top! Firstly, pull the t-shirt across a piece of cardboard until it’s taut. Now pull the pineapple slowly off the film and place it on the t-shirt. Now you can gradually apply the paint. Let your imagination run wild when you choose the colours!  Once the complete design has been painted, loosen the film and carefully remove it from the top. Now you just need to leave it to dry! Check the instructions provided by the fabric paint manufacturers for washing the top. We had to iron our pineapple top briefly inside out first, and now we can happily wash it on 40°C. And we can wear it again and again and again. We hope you have lots of fun doing the same. The second of our DIY ideas will be here for you next week!

Trends & Styles Autumn/Winter 15/16 I Part 2

Rock’ n Gold, Marble Arts, Dark Illusion and Boho. These are the four hot topics from our brand new Autumn/Winter 2015/2016 jewelery collection, I introduced last week. I promised you guys that I would give you some more exclusive insights on whats hot right now.  No matter if you’re a Discoqueen, an Ice princess or a freaky flower girl. There’s a shiny piece of happiness for everyone in our next seasons Trends & Styles. So check them out: Jet Metallics Shimmering dark grey, countless jet stones and haematite-tone metallics shine the perfect evening spotlight on disco queens. Rock-star ear cuffs with fringes and studs go with these perfectly. Shiny metallic clutches in a trendy reptile finish or with glittering stones plus seductive eye masks complete the cool look. Soft Ice Cool rose pink, icy mint, frosted white, fresh ice blue – these pastels set the tone for this style. Crystalline stones are combined with opulent acrylic frost flowers, giving colliers, bracelets and drop earrings a decorative yet unapproachable touch.  Brownies Exaggeration is the key to this look. In the starring role: leather bracelets in caramel, toffee and chocolate brown which generously decorate the wrist. Trims such as studs or chains shimmer elegantly in gold, and little rhinestones add glamorous accents. Perfect and clean-cut: graphic clasp bracelets in a leather look. Still Statement Luscious eye-catching colliers are an absolute essential. They shimmer in frosty ice colours, promising night blue, deep black or cool crystal. Corded, with an opulent blossom trim or with stunning rhinestone rocks – fashionistas will always love them! So there are plenty of reasons  why this autumn will be the most thrilling season this year. Until then, enjoy this hot summer, go out and jump into a pool!

Trends & Styles Autumn/Winter 15/16 I Part 1

Thinking of autumn right now? Never! Of course, we currently enjoy the balmy sun and warm temperatures. But it is also very interesting to look at the latest trends & styles for autumn/winter 15/16, isn’t it? Bijou Brigitte exclusively presented all the new items at the press day. And I was there as well to sneak a peek of the must-haves. Opulent jewellery in matt black, glittering colliers with sparkling rhinestones, mysteriously shimmering trinkets in frosty soft ice-cream shades of rose pink, pistachio and lilac – the new Autumn/Winter 2015/2016 Collection from Bijou Brigitte is both mysterious and glamorous: Rock’n Gold Always classic, always stylish – jewellery in black and gold tones. Necklaces with ombré shading and elegant envelope bags in black and gold are especially trendy this season. Boho Playful necklaces and earrings with long fringes or gemstones, worn with fine ring sets with little connecting chains, cognac-coloured shoulder bags with matching real leather belt and a relaxed poncho to snuggle up in – the elegant, casual Bohemian Style is simply an integral part of the fashion world now. Dark Illusion Queens of the night are going for extravagant black this season, with matt surfaces giving necklaces, bangles and earrings a new, modern look. Sexy looped ribbons and sturdy cord necklaces made from glittering rocaille beads become inscrutably eye-catching. Marble Arts Ethnic meets marble – an unusual combination that produces stylish results. Decorative stones with an imitation carrara pattern decorate silver-tone fringe necklaces and sturdy bracelets. City amazons wear hammered clasp bracelets with them, plus rings with uncut gemstones. You will see more styles in the next blog post. Stay tuned!

Instagram Favorites May

Our Instagram Channel is probably the most beautiful way to inform you daily about the glittering world of Bijou Brigitte. Of course, we have looked back on the past month to identify which pieces you loved best. And here they are: Farina’s picture attracted most hearts. We’ve been following her on her blog novalana.com and her Instagram Channel @novalanalove for some time. See for yourself what the lovely Cologne native is up to and which exciting places she visits. Four weeks ago this snapshot was taken while enjoying strawberries in New York. The curved bangle depicting love, sported by Farina, is still available in our stores! You’re so cool! @novalanalove <3 Summer, sun, sea and blue sky – the blue pearl necklace, shown beneath, has made us dream of your summer holiday. Apparently, you too because this was one of the most liked posts in May. <3 Blue, blue, blue are all my dresses, eh … accessories. The blue cornflowers consist of many small stones made of cat eye. Most important is to have something sparkling adorning your ears. I just picked some twigs from one of our beautiful lilac trees outside our office (luckily I wasn’t caught ). I searched our collections for a fitting jewel and found something as lovely and unique as a lilac tree can be: delicate purple blossoms, white, rose and gold adorn this filigree bracelet. If you’re very lucky, you can still pick up this purple treasure in one of our stores. <3

Gemini ( 21 May – 21 June )

Geminis whirl through their lives like the seeds of a dandelion clock. They are usually strong and self-confident – qualities that can also be seen in the world-famous Gemini Heidi Klum. Geminis have no fear of jumping into deep water as long as the water offers plenty of new experiences. Gemini is an air sign, and Geminis are both intellectual and rational. With its warm, honey-coloured tones, amber makes sure that Geminis never lose their creativity despite their logical way of thinking. Because these unique stones consist of fossilised resin, every piece of amber has a long history of its very own. This alone makes it the perfect companion for Geminis, who are always on a voyage of discovery. This fine, real silver chain bracelet not only suits the Gemini wearer perfectly – the amber, with its definite colours, is also decorated with a little khamsa, or hand of Fatima, which protects the wearer of the bracelet from the evil eye and negative thoughts wherever she goes. Thanks to the subtle oriental relief on the fingers and palm of the hand, the bracelet looks even more delicate. The large amber stone has an even more intense effect in its classic oval setting. This piece of jewellery in real silver will also suit every Gemini lady and strengthen her self-confidence and flexibility. The amber’s natural colour variations make it as unpredictable as the Gemini’s journey.
