Metal Accent Jewelry Trends

Metal Accent Jewelry Trends

Spacer 20x20 pixelsSpacer 10x10 pixels

Discover the latest trends.

You'll follow what several innovative professional jewelry artists are doing that’s new and what they like about it in Trends.

 

In a recent issue, three jewelry artists discussed their thoughts on the latest trend in using gold accents on silver jewelry as a way to reduce costs without giving up the richness of gold in their designs. 

 

We followed that up with a necklace project that accented a bronze medallion with silver wire, because in each issue, we expand on a trend from different angles, from design, materials, and tools to techniques or history.

 

Don't miss another issue where you'll learn the hottest trends such as creating cold connections, making metal beads, and the popularity of acrylics.
