Rocky Mountain Bead Collection Review

Rocky Mountain Bead Collection Review


Reviewed by zzzJessica zzzCarpender, Editor,

Nunn Design's 2016 fall collection is inspired by the beauty of America's untouched nature, like the Rocky Mountains. The stamped charms have imagery of Colorado's Aspen trees in fall, Alaska's Denali trees, and more. For jewelers who love nature, this collection will hit the mark.

As with previous collections from Nunn Design, the components in this collection all come in four finishes: antique copper, antique gold, antique silver, and sterling silver plate. Mix and match these finishes for truly unique jewelry or stick to a common theme for a polished look. Nunn Design's image reflects a stunning mix of rustic and elegant elements, lovely for formal occasions as well as everyday wear.

This collection also includes beautiful beadcaps in the shapes of leaves, curved petals, and even acorns. The attention to detail creates a unified look to jewelry made from the collection. These beadcaps pair wonderfully with beads of various colors for earrings and bracelet charms.

Finally the open hoops in this collection have a clean, natural look that supports the detailed, delicate look of the charms and beadcaps for solid finished pieces.

My favorite charm in this collection is the Guadalupe, which is shaped like an old fossil you might find in the woods. It's the perfect size for a simple necklace that would make a great accent for willowy, beachy tops and dresses this fall. I put one on a delicate silver chain, but I think it would also look great as earrings made with the open hoops.

Nature never goes out of style, so this collection has a timeless element that makes it a must-have.
