Recently I read an article by Venessa Lau, “Belle of the Fall: Top 2012 Style Trends That Jewelers Need to Know” . She quotes Amanda Gizzi, director of communications at Jewelers of America, “It’s about bringing flash back, and the majority of people will be doing that with their jewelry. This is the time to catch their attention.”
This is one reason why I wear jewellery. To put my sparkle on…to stand out…to show the world this is me and if it is a piece of jewellery that is distinctive or out of the ordinary, then the happier I am.
Further in the article, Venessa quotes Amanda again, “This desire for something handcrafted is going to carry over through 2013,” says Gizzi. “People had to cut back during the hard economic times. They’re ready for something different.”
As an Etsy seller: AB Designs I regularly see the beautiful, handcrafted pieces which cannot be found in the high street and more than often they are as affordable. So, whatever the style, whatever the budget, there’s unique jewellery out there and I intend to find the little gems, mainly because…I just LOVE bling!
