JEWELRY HAS GONE SOFT!
Recently, I've been getting into making jewelry. Most jewelry items I find in stores are very ordinary. Beads strung on a string...oh boy... When I buy something I want something unique. I'm looking for the WOWza reaction! I've been looking at trends in jewelry design at Urban Outfitters, Anthropology, and some artists on www.etsy.com. My trend board above depicts some of my findings. Jewelry has gone soft! Pieces of fabric are tied, braided or just hanging loose as the necklace. Another popular trend is going green by utilizing recycled items such as cork, newspaper, old t-shirts, and plastic bags. Some of my designs will be posted soon!
