I have been getting a lot of solicitations lately for holiday garb - clothes, jewelry and accessories.
I thought I would focus on what's hot this season:
WOW I like all of the trends - what do you think? Looks like based on this forecast business is 2010 should be strong (I'll keep my fingers crossed)
2010, in contrast to 2009 nine will be all about symmetry and coordination of clothing and jewelery. No longer will you be looking to call attention to your unique jewelery pieces with brash colors and shapes, but a more subtle use of your jewelery is trending in. Bold was good, now bold and stylish is the name of the game.
The price of gold continues to skyrocket. This will continue to have an impact on jewelery making trends. Brass, silver, wood and beads are going to take over the field while gold remains unaffordable for the masses. Beaded jewelery and unique custom made pieces will help people express their individual style while not taxing already strained financial resources.
Cold colors will be the new fashion trend. Wild beads and earth tone colors will be used a little more sparingly, while blacks, whites, blues and grays will help create a fashion image of strength, collection and ability. To stand out with flaring color is no longer trendsetting in 2010.
Handcrafted unique jewelery will continue to be hugely popular. More popular than ever, in 2010, because of the desire to express oneself through creativity rather than extravagance. Expect the truly fashionable to be wearing their own beaded jewelery, from necklaces, pendants, to rings and bands.
A search for meaning will lead jewelery fashion setters to create pieces that have greater symbolism. In 2010, each piece of your jewelery box should have a story to tell and a history to speak of. Selective wearing of symbolic jewelery will set the 2010 trend strongly.
Small, light bracelets, and subtle pendants will carry the day. Perhaps you have a beautifully beaded pendant, small, and nearly unnoticeable until you turn slightly and it catches the light. Jewelery of this type will be all the rage, and occasion many a conversation.
Dangling earrings, with glass beads or a central focus piece will grow in popularity. 2010 will be all about focus and meaning, and the dangling earring provides a perfect counterpoint to the less audacious clothing fashion trends that will be seen.
