Every year this happens and every year we all say the same thing, “I can’t believe it is already the holidays”. I say NOT THIS YEAR! Really, the least I can do to help lighten the stress of holiday shopping is give you some ideas from the collections of work that Aaron and I feel are going to be wonderful gifts this year. There are countless gift guides you can go through….. online, in the mail, and on television so I will just stick to my specialty and show what will be available at The Karen Curtis Shop this year in Grand Central Terminal. I don’t want to show you products and pretend to know what you might want to get for someone. You most likely receive this blog/email because you have an appreciation for our work whether for yourself or as gifts, and it is solely because of you that we are able to bring colorful designs to your life, and we want to thank you all for that!!!
Let’s start with Earrings! We went design crazy with earrings this year. I’ve been toying with some new styles over the past couple of years and come this November there will be more styles and more one of a kinds then ever before. Switching up earring styles is one of the easiest ways to have fun accessorizing your outfits so you can never have too many earrings…. or jewelry for that matter ; ) ! Here are some photos of new colors and concept pieces for the up-coming seasons.
Swarovski Sapphire with Pearl Earrings
Rare Vintage Swarovski Sapphire with Swarovski Pearl Hannukkah Earrings
Christmas Hoop Earrings
- Chandelier Earrings with 3 tiers of crystal drops
Large Swarovski crystal chandelier earrings
Brand new designs of single strand bracelets, charm bracelets, bangle bracelets, and beautiful cuffs! One of my favorites is the cuff with spikes. By not setting these very rare crystals in the traditional manner they end up protruding from the bracelet and create a cool edgy texture.

Necklaces range from single wire wrapped strands to ultra-glamorous layers of crystal. Once again I focused on creating more one of a kinds and new styles of Swarovski crystal necklaces to add to the selection this year. I think its more fun for all of us. I get to create new special pieces and my customers have a huge selection to choose from. I hope you enjoy the preview.

Finally I can’t wrap up this gift guide without mentioning our wine stoppers. Hand Blown by my husband Aaron and I, Colorful like the jewelry but uni-sex!!! Any wine enthusiast would be thrilled to get this for the holidays. There is a great selection on our website and if you are in the NYC area stop by our location at the Grand Central Terminal Holiday Fair to stock up on a gift that is always nice to have on hand through out the year. Think House warming parties, hostess gift for Thanksgiving, and all those holiday parties we end up attending for the next couple months. Why scramble around last-minute when you can be fully prepared with a few nicely wrapped wine stoppers.
