Jewelry Trends for 2013

Jul 18, 2012

The other day, I met with the other jewelry editors and designers here at Interweave in Loveland, Colorado. Believe it or not, we're already planning our Spring 2013 issue of Jewelry Stringing. In anticipation of that issue, we got together to discuss the jewelry trends we have been seeing or are hearing about for the coming year. We had a great time sharing our observations and photos of our favorite jewelry. I thought I'd share some of our favorite finds.

Kate, our project editor, likes the tribal jewelry she's noticed lately

Oceana, our marketing designer, is seeing a lot of gold and loves the spike-y jewelry trend.

Connie, our designer, loves all the fun ways pearls are being used in jewelry

And I can't get enough of the fun geometric jewelry I've been seeing

What kind of jewelry is getting you excited these days? Are there any particular styles you'd like to see in Jewelry Stringing? Let us know in the comments section.

I am on a limited budget and would like to see more polymer clay beads and perhaps more beads made out of paper.  I am trying my hand at it and it seems satisfying to see the results of what such inexpensive items that can be created.

I love the vintage styles the best, especially with some Lucite flower accents.  I would love to see some ideas like that, especially for a spring issue or summer issue.  If you could design them to be budget friendly, that would be really great, because I live on a fixed income.

Since pantone introduced emerald green as the color of the year I would like to see what type of jewelry would be compatible to wear with it
