February 26th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Two trends are dominating jewelry designs for Spring and Summer. Those trends are Global Fusion and Midsummer’s Night. Here you’ll find a few examples that embrace these trends, and utilize many of their key themes. Feel free to follow the instructions for these pieces to recreate them exactly as they are, or simply use them as inspiration for your own trendy pieces.

Global Fusion
Inspired by the cultures and landscapes of Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, Global Fusion reflects the merging of creative influences throughout the world. Vibrant colors like bright red, violet and green combine with subdued earth tones such as ochre, beige and clay red, evoking the contrast of culture and nature.

Midsummer’s Night
Reflecting the magic and romanticism of fairy tales, Midsummer’s Night is bursting with spiritual mysticism and poetic beauty. The soft, angelic splendor of light powder colors combines with taupe and mauve to create a foundation that is accented by gorgeous spring pastels. Clothing is soft and feminine, using lacy fabrics such as cotton voile.
