#trending

If you've been into the shop, you've been lucky enough to peruse our jewelry table, the centerpiece of our little store. We're always hunting high and low for new pieces, keeping an eye out for new artists and ideas. 





Here are some trends that have us really excited:

Czech Glass Beads

Czech Glass Necklaces from Brass Sand, $24.50

D Hoops w/ Etched Czech Glass Beads, Brass Sand, $18.50

Also known as druk beads, Czech glass beads are nothing new. Artisans in the Bohemia region of the Czech Republic have been
hand pouring and pressing these treasures for over 300 years! These beads come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, lending themselves to almost any style. 


Clay
Assorted Clay Earrings, Hey Grl Hey, $28.50-32.50

Assorted Clay Jewelry, TyannZeal, $24.50-28.50

Assorted Clay Studs, Cold Gold, $18.50

Many jewelry makers have realized the potential of clay as a medium for their work. Clay jewelry is more delicate than that made of metals or beads, but so long as you don't step on it or drop it, there's nothing to worry about. Clay overlaps with another trend: large, yet lightweight jewelry. With clay, you can get bold statement pieces and your ears don't have to pay the price. Clay can be molded, cut out, painted, impressed with various patterns and more. It's easy to see why it's become so popular recently! 

Enamel


Enamel Mano Figa Pendants, Shiny Apple Studio, $26.50

Enamel Atropos Pendant, Amar + Riley, $32.50

In the last few years, you've probably noticed how popular enamel pins have become. This trend has spilled over into jewelry, and for good reason! Enamel offers artists the opportunity to include details and colors that aren't always possible with other materials. Enamel is particularly popular with artists who wish to turn already existing illustrations into jewelry or pins. 

We are SO excited to see all the different styles and ideas coming out of the independent jewelry world, and we're just as excited to share them with our customers. Be sure to check back soon for more highlights on our wonderful products and vendors, and news on whats going on at the shop. 

See you soon!
