Mixing textures is a strong trend in fashion and jewelry making. Chain and stringing combine in bold, multiple strand designs. Designs also include asymmetrical accents, large transparent beads and ribbon.
The Handmade Touch is a trend to watch. Sections of wire wrapping or beads will take some of summer's trends (like these clear bangles) into the fall.
Pearls are typically popular in fall/winter, and this year is no exception. Oversized pearls 10-14mm are getting star treatment. Knotting is a popular technique, especially for beaders taking their stringing skills to the next level.
