Spring 2012 Wearable Art Trends - Accessories Part 2


Necklaces and bracelets are substantial and multi-layered.  They combine traditional metal colors with brightly-colored stones and materials that coordinate with the bright colors of the spring season.  

Fabrics and leather will also find their way into necklaces and bracelets allowing, mixed-media artists to turn their thoughts to accessories.

The heavier-looking necklaces and bracelets have a hand-crafted quality to them.  Team them with a simple outfit and you will be a trend setter.

Try combing several single-strand bracelets or necklaces for your own unique look.   If you go for a strong necklace, keep your other jewelry on the simple side.  Same is true with a bracelet.  If you use a strong necklace with a strong bracelet, you will loose the dramatic look that you are trying to achieve.



The trends of Spring 2012 show the wearable-art designers using brighter colors flowing fabric, and a growing accessory awareness to celebrate their individual styles. 


Thanks to ILoveToCreate for their support.  I had to create the shirt that you see in the presentation and ILoveToCreate sent me the paints and Glam-It-Up Iron-On Crystals that I used for the shirt.  It was an honor to see them at the Trends Report at CHA.
