“When in doubt…add a little gold”
We are absolutely in love with the beautiful gold tones we used in the jewellery for one of our brides.
It’s almost two-and-a-half years ago since we launched our awareness campaign for 46PLUS Down-Syndrom Stuttgart e.V. with the fierce and beautiful Tamara. We remember our young super model and our butterfly bracelets being warmly cherished not only in our social media network but also in the public press. We just love every moment of working with Tamara and this week’s post belongs to her! Don’t miss out on Conny Wenk’s colourful and cheerful pictures in the lookbook “Celebrate Diversity – the awareness issue”.
Every bride that we have the pleasure of working with to create her jewellery for the big day, is something very special for us. It’s always different, and always fun when we have contact with these women. Sometimes we have the pleasure of very nice email contact to discuss a brides jewellery, or over the phone, and sometimes brides travel to our showroom in Stuttgart to have a look at our jewellery in real life.
When we were approached by the lovely Evelin and her fiancé, it was a real pleasure. It’s the very first time we had the bride AND groom to be in our studio to help them find the perfect jewellery for Evelin to wear on their wedding day. It was very exciting since we had seen a photo from the wedding dress Evelin was going to wear in order to give her good advice, but her fiancé had not seen it.
We were very happy when we received some photos from their big day where you can just see how happy they both are.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
We just love digging into the huge amount of stunning pictures we’ve been enriched with over the last couple of years made by the one and only Conny Wenk. This is from one of the very first photo shoots we did together beginning of 2012 with the musical stars Pia Douwes, Claudia Agar and Femke Soetenga. Nice memories! Please, have a look at all the pictures from this shoot in the lookbook “Looking fabulous – the glamour issue” and have a fabulous Thursday!
The beautiful Australian bride Gemma was also one of the brides we had the pleasure of making her jewellery for her big day. Gemma wore a custom version of our “Invincible Love” necklace which had a little more pearls and crystals, and the little cute matching “Invincible Love” earrings to that. We absolutely loved it when we received these photos and could see how beautifully our jewellery matched her whimsical short wedding dress and the love that you feel through the pictures.
“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”
Just like the fairy Tinker Bell makes people fly with her pixie dust in the adventures of
Peter Pan, we at JUVELAN would also like to give you wings with our brand-new jewellery collection. The handmade, golden wings that are to be seen on this 15th issue’s cover, with an endless amount of golden wire and Swarovski crystals, were the main inspiration for our designer JOHAN VANDAMME and the whole theme of this magical photo shoot. As a piece of handmade couture jewellery, the wings were created as a little extra treat for the eyes of our readers and gave a sparkly touch to one of the most harmonious shoots we’ve ever had.
The meaning of the colours in our new “Filigree Pixie Dust” jewellery collection represent everything we are and what we’ve become over the last four years. Using only gold (achievement) as a base mixed with mint green (freshness) and fuchsia (confidence).
More than ever, we just love what we’re doing and are overwhelmingly thrilled being able to present a new collection.
JUVELAN is not following any specific trends when it comes to our jewellery making. Although certain trends are just impossible to avoid when you simply fall in love with them. Our designer JOHAN VANDAMME got inspired to do a fresh collection completely in gold integrating Swarovski beads in a soft eye-catching range of colours and everything with a touch of pixie dust. The result: an exquisite, filigree collection of 19 delicate designs that hopefully will appeal to every single one of you.
Please welcome our new adorable JUVELAN model, the musical star MELANIE ORTNER-STASSEN. When we got to know MELANIE, we just felt it straight away that her beautiful and fearless aura would be a fresh and perfect choice for us and for the current collection. We just love her cheerful spirit, blonde short haircut, her blue Bambi eyes and her contagious charisma, which were just an impeccable match to our darling photographer CONNY WENK and our hair & make-up artist NATALIE KOTTMANN. It was such a joyful and special moment to have these power girls gathered together. We are so grateful and lucky to have the best team ever, thanks to all of you guys!
You would like to place an order from the Filigree Pixie Dust collection? If you wish to do so you are more than welcome to visit our online store or simply send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your order will be processed throughout whole of August and we deliver from beginning of September.
We hope you enjoy this lookbook as much as we have enjoyed creating the collection and shooting it. Spread your wings and have a wonderful summer!

We got so overwhelmed a couple of weeks ago as we surprisingly received this super cute JUVELAN bag handmade by Susi Tottleben at Susi’s: Creative Wonderland that we couldn’t resist asking Susi to make 3 unique, handcrafted bags for you to win!
You would like to win one of these cutesy summer bags? All you have to do is simply answering the question; who is the charming and pretty model on the picture below?
