From monitoring a huge collection of Pinterest boards, I have detected a number of trends in jewelry this year. I keep in mind that I don't really follow the fashion runways or the bridal jewelry world, but gravitate more towards art jewelry and hand-crafted one-of-a-kind contemporary jewelry. I decided it would be fun to examine several of these trends.
1. Mixed stones.
2. Wire structures.
3. Black patina.

Patricia Tschetter utilizes the low tarnish properties of Argentium sterling to get both white and black silver to contrast with gold accents.
Oxidized silver also contrasts beautifully with light colored stones and pearls, as in this brooch by Marianne Anderson.
Well, I hit publish early, so I'll continue the trends in another post.
