Shades of Autumn

Ever since I celebrated my 29th birthday for the 8th time, my Fall fashion taste in terms of color has been shifting ever so slightly towards all things earth tone with an occasional splash of color. Nowadays, what used to be black is chocolate brown,  white is cream and color usually means subtle (emerald green, coral, curry, aubergine, camel,…). Generally, I think my Fall wardrobe is probably best described as classy & timeless. No screaming colors, no super wild patterns. Hence my new Fall bracelets… Enjoy!

Happy beginning of Fall!

Elephants for Fall

The air smells like Fall and it’s almost time for jeans, boots, jackets,… My favorite season! Actually, if you ask me, I would totally not mind having Spring and Fall year round, with a few hot(ter) summer days and a few cold(er) winter days – but only a few and not too extreme temperature wise. I’ve been playing around with new beads in all sorts of warm, earthy Fall colors lately. All new bracelets will be added on Etsy within the next few days. Here’s one example: beautiful goldstone on brown leather.

Happy Summer Mixers

the lucky elephant™ is back from summer break and I am excited to share my latest designs today! Inspired by my time in Spain this sumer: delicate & colorful mixer bracelets made with Japanese seed beads, 24k gold vermeil clasps and adorned with handcrafted 24k gold vermeil Hill Tribe elephant charm. Those are great additions to any stacked wrist look and will go perfectly with any bracelet you might already own!

If you don’t see them in my store on Etsy, please feel free to email me at info@theluckyelephant.com to inquire. I am always happy to re-create sold bracelets or custom design your very own! 

Happy Summer!!!

The contest is all about YOU, YOUR STYLE, YOUR LOVE FOR ELEPHANTS, YOUR CREATIVITY! Entering will require a little bit of work on your end, but the prizes will be well worth it: TWO (!!) the lucky elephant™ leather wraps with a total value of $140. There’s two parts to this contest – each part with a different the lucky elephant™ bracelet waiting for you at the finish line! You can enter both parts for a chance to win both bracelets! The rules…

All images will be put on a special board on Pinterest to have them all in one place!

Please keep in mind: the most unique entry wins part 2 of the contest, so BE CREATIVE & MAKE IT PRETTY, but most importantly have fun!!! :)
