We’re FALLing for this season’s top jewelry trends!

Fall 2017 Trends

Bead Fest Tacoma is getting closer by the second (one more month! one more month!), and while we patiently wait for October 26th to roll around, we’ve been keeping busy with trend updates straight from New York Fashion Week.

While exploring hot-off-the-runway photos and accessory trends, it became clear that some of this season’s top jewelry styles can be recreated at Bead Fest–only without the runway price tag! Excited to feel the inspiration?

Did ’90s fashion EVER go out of style? Personally, we think not! Glam up the essential ’90s-style choker, or other hot accessory piece, by crafting your own from metal. Intricate soldered details allow you to personalize your own eclectic piece.

We’re over the moon about this trend! Represent your love for all things lunar by rocking this metal-licious crescent moon pendant with elegant, winding details.

Welcome to the dark side! With Halloween right around the corner (YAY!), we’re all about this dark, vampy style! This textured charcoal-tone cuff is both refined and a little bit spooky. Be warned: Your other jewelry may feel overwhelmingly intimidated by this daring, one-of-a-kind piece.

Sleek, simple and silver. This trend is not only beautifully delicate, but it makes accessorizing any outfit a breeze! Gemstone touches and ornately-crafted hints add an element of surprise to these dainty darlings.

Fine art meets fabulous jewelry in this must-try trend. Rustic metals and color-blocked rainbow hues create a mod, ’60s-esque vibe without going too over-the-top retro. Pair your tiny tiles with a chunky knit and jeans, or give it more of a bohemian feel with a flowy maxi dress.

Fuel your creativity with a mountain view!

What could be better than spending a weekend learning new techniques and shopping a curated selection of beads, gemstones, findings, tools and more? How about doing it with Mt. Rainier and gorgeous scenery in the background!?
