Keeping one eye on your beadwork and another on the runway is hard work but in order to make sure your designs are stylish and cutting edge (and that they ultimately sell), it’s important to keep an eye out for jewelry trends.
We’ve put together this run down of the best designer jewelry for this summer as a showcase of inspiration. Copy the designs, get inspired, use bits and pieces…it’s up to you! We’re keeping you in the know.
This funky Bohemian bracelet from Asos is a fun combination of woven friendship bracelet and beaded bangle using colorful thread, leather cord, Bali beads and multicolored glass beads. Trendy and casual. Looks like the bohemian bracelet trend is still going strong.
This lariat necklace from Missoni uses a wonderful color palette of aqua, silver and beige to get a summery effect. It’s intricate and without being overwhelming.
Chunky gold is also a popular look this summer. Use large golden glass beads to save on both weight and price and stay on trend.
This pretty necklace from Alexis Bittar uses gold and jade for a beautiful natural looking combination.
Lavender and pink stones are in vogue over at Coach. Use Swarovski fancy stones or flatbacks and a DeCoRe Bezel Ring to make your own for a fraction of the price.
Get inspired with these gorgeous Rhinestone Cup Chain earrings and get started making some of your own!
Another major trend coming this way from across the pond is Soutache. Read more about it here.
