Trendy Arrow DIY Jewelry

I know for those of you who have never attempted to make homemade jewelry, don’t be scared off just yet! I just started about six months ago and I’m already making chain maille jewelry; it sounds scary, but wire wrapping tutorials become your best friend. The intricate statement necklaces that I’ve made with thick wire bracelets make me feel like a female knight from The Canterbury Tales. Anyways, jewelry making is such an awesome hobby because instead of catering to what you see at the store, you can just make exactly what you’re looking for.

Arrow Jewelry

When this Aztec jewelry and tribal clothes started becoming a trend, I was definitely not the first to jump on the bandwagon. I love geometric patterns as much as the next Art Deco buff, but the miss-matched colors and bold designs were just too much for me at the time. And, they were difficult to mimic because I didn’t have a steady hand at painting, nor a keen eye for sewing. I’m more of a floral pattern person—flowers are much softer and more feminine. So, it’s only just recently that I’m jumping on the Aztec and tribal pattern bandwagon. I’ve become more of a Boho-chic hipster. I’ve embraced the tribal patterns with arrows and geometric themes. Since it is such a huge trend, though, that means finding the exact arrow jewelry to go with all of my tribal outfits is fairly difficult, not to mention expensive. That’s why DIY arrow jewelry is my next big project.

Considering I’ve only made jewelry a handful of times in my life, these are super easy jewelry making projects. All you need are the materials.

Link Love: 35 Trendy DIY Jewelry

One of the common misconceptions about DIY jewelry is that they don’t look like store-bought or that they aren’t trendy and fashionable. We are here to prove them wrong! Homemade jewelry is absolutely gorgeous and there are endless possibilities with what you can do with it. There’s clay jewelry, metalwork, beaded, wire work, and so many other options for what you can make. As long as you have the right tools and an endless imagination, you can make anything you think of. Can’t find the right leather bracelet? That’s why you make it yourself and use the materials that you are imagining. Stop settling for the options that are given to you, and learn how to make jewelry the way you want it to look.

Trendy Jewelry

I feel like every woman owns at least three full sized jewelry boxes, and a couple trinket boxes. Each one symbolizes the phase that represents of that time in her life. For example, I have a small, about a foot high, box that is labeled for each type of jewelry in bright colors and flower knobs—obviously, that was my childhood phase where I kept everything and it was just the awful kid jewelry. Then I have one that is wooden, same size, and has glass doors that have a hanger to hold my necklaces. My “adult” jewelry box is the full length mirror that opens up to hold all of my nice, jewelry, DIY statement necklaces, wire work projects, and anything that needs a little extra love.

Then again, that might be just me trying to put a reason behind the hoard of boxes I have—an English major problem. I’ll just say it is an attempt to organize jewelry. Everything on this giant list of link love looks like something that has been bought in a store. I love the homemade rings with a sideways gem or incredible metalwork. Statement necklaces haven’t gone away yet, and honestly, I hope they never do. They’re an easy way to add some flair to a plain outfit. There’s something for everyone on this giant list. With all the options for cute DIY jewelry, I’ll have to buy another jewelry box for that period in my life where I go “crazy for crafting” (which is all the time!).

Bead&Button Show 2014: Hot Trends and New Friends

This past weekend the editors of FaveCrafts and AllFreeJewelryMaking had a blast touring the Bead&Button Show in Milwaukee, collected a new list of hot trends, and met some amazing designers we can’t wait to introduce you to! From the crazy color combinations to cute little animal beads to fabulous new products, The Bead and Button Show opened our eyes to what’s hot and happening this summer.

  300--20140606_101325

If you have never heard of the Bead&Button Show you’re in for a treat, and possibly a new annual tradition! Located up North in Milwaukee, WI, the Bead and Button Show is the largest jewelry and bead show in the world, hosting over 300 talented designers and companies that are dedicated to the crafty world of beading (and buttoning)! These designers and companies each have their own booths that display and sell their patterns, one-of-a-kind jewelry, and products–plus, some of the companies even hosted “Make and Takes!” The show will also hosts over 700 bead and jewelry classes. It doesn’t get more fun for beaders like us than being able to walk through a conference dedicate to tiny, shiny, beads and buttons!

 

Color Trends

This year, bright colors are all the rage. From shades of sky blue and teal to fuchsia and coral, this summer, the bolder the better. We noticed a great focus on blue, teal, and turquoise which was complemented by an assortment of corals, reds, and oranges. That being said, this summer the focus should clearly be on cheerful beads that add a POP of color to your outfit!

300--20140606_171900  300--20140606_172020

Bead Trends

This year at Bead&Button, we noticed a hot selection of seed beads, rhinestones, and seas glass. These top trends are great jewelry projects for beaders to work on during the summer–especially when it comes to sea glass! Using these different types of beads to create large statement necklaces was spotted at the show, which is another fun option for summer beaders.

300--20140606_171807  SeaGlass

 

Trends from New Friends

We met a lot of talented designers during our stay at Bead&Button, and no one knows the beading world like a designer! Take it from an expert like Hannah Rosner, spikes and skulls are back IN! Also, those amazing double-holed seed beads are in high demand. Another really cool beading trend we saw was the increased popularity of dichroic glass beads, and Karen Bruns’ Designs had an amazing display of them. These glass beads undergoe a color change in certain lighting conditions, which is super-cool!
