All Eyes on Trends

Gray for Day, Silver for Night is a popular trend for Spring and we expect it to continue through the entire year. New Kink Free Ti™ Titanium Beading Wire and Gunmetal Findings perfectly complement gray and silver jewelry designs, while Stainless Steel Shaping Wire allows you to make wire-wrapped jewelry in this hot hue.

Layered Chains add edge to simpler outfits for spring and summer. It's easy to create this look with mixtures of silver, polyester, and new gunmetal chain. Add ribbon or satin cord to soften the effect.

Vintage Style Jewelry was everywhere at the Oscars and will continue to stay strong in the trend department. Try adding Beadalon's premium European-made Upper Clasps or delicate Filigree Connectors to your next jewelry design.

Turquoise is the Color of the Year for 2010, according to the Pantone Color Institute. Expect customers to want beads in every material and shade of this popular color. Combine turquoise beads with Quick Links™ and other geometric elements for a look that translates from spring to summer to fall.
