Mermaids and dragons and gremlins, oh my! Get your inner fantasy rolling when you stop by Artisans on the Ave gallery and see these creatures come to life in every form! Meet three of the talented artists from Artisans on the Ave on Friday, October 19 at the Opening Reception for “Fantasy & Fairy Tales”.

Each of these artists will be on hand to chat about their art and share insight into how the artful mind goes from the ordinary to fantastical.

Jewelry Trends to Consider

Look at any fashion magazine: You will see jewelry and accessories to go with the new season’s clothing.  What to create for the fashion-conscious art patron?  The Rickie Report shares some insight into Jewelry Trends.  

 

 

 

 Jewelry Trends

 

 

From large, massive pieces of jewelry to a simple pair of stud earrings, it is clear that jewelry as an accessory is here to stay.  For artists who create jewelry pieces, it is important to understand the latest trends but at the same time, stay true to your own artistic self!   Thankfully, we live in an era where variety is not only accepted but embraced.  

 

 

METALS

 

  • Gold has always been the standard, but metals ( think silver, steel, bronze) are hot.  For those working with non-metallic mediums, think of these in terms of a color palette.  

 

  • Metal tubes ( check out your local hardware store or plumbing supplier)

 

  • Chains!  Even better: Multiple chains!

 

  • Watch parts and keys are still big influences

 

  • Wire – wrapped gemstones, cabachons, shells

 

  • Bent wire.  So you’re not into wire-wrapping.  A simple twist of metal is sometimes just enough to enhance a bracelet.
  • Stacked rings ( make them interchangeable, so your clients come back for more)

 

 

Organic

 

  • Be Colorful!

 

  • Consider different fibers  and various textures (check out a local knitting shop) 

 

  • Embroidery floss

 

  • Love a piece of fabric?  Make a wide bracelet!   (Addition of rhinestones or other bling is optional)

 

  • Bohemian styles

 

  • Native American styles

 

  • Woven with chevrons or intricate patterns

 

  • Stop during your walk at the beach and look for shells with natural holes

 

  • Up-cycle scrabble tiles, papers, photos, bottle caps

 

 

Leather, Wood, Etc.

 

  • Think male!

 

  • Think female!

 

  • Wide cuff bracelets with or without metal accents

 

  • Wood beads on leather

 

  • Wood beads with chain

 

  • Wood beads with rubber “O” rings ( get thee to your hardware store!)

 

  • A small portion of a driftwood branch can be wire-wrapped and hang as a simple pendant

 

 

Things to consider:

 

BODY JEWELRY

 

  • Think ABOVE the elbow for bracelets

 

  • Consider the FULL FOOT instead of just the toe rings

 

  • Arm cuffs

 

  • Bib necklaces

 

  • Ankle chains with charms

 

  • Long necklaces that can be worn in front OR in back ( to highlight some of the back-baring fashions)

 

  • Pearls NEVER go out of fashion!

 

 

There is no “right” or “wrong” with jewelry design.  We point out that as concern for easing neck pain and back pain increases, lighter – weight neck pieces are going to become “hot”.  Your patrons may have metal allergies, so be prepared to offer different earring wires.  AND don’t forget those who may not have pierced ears.  It is easy to convert pierced earrings into clips.

 

The Rickie Report looks forward

to sharing

YOUR jewelry creations with our readers.
