    Turquoise is a great color paired with pearls for a beach feel.

    Feathers! Everywhere! For your hair, for jewelry, for sandals, bags, clothes. Got to love American Idol for that!

    This summer’s hottest trend is going to be big and chunky bracelets in bright eye popping colors like yellow, turquoise, and red!

    The new Coral pearls from Swarovski are great, particularly in the big sizes.

    Vintage & ethnic – pieces with an old feeling or pieces incorporating upcycled elements. Chunky layered necklaces with wide cuffs.

    I think bulky bracelets are the in thing for this summer. I just came back from Aruba, and out there bulky bracelets were such a big item out there especially with a lot of bright colors. The main colors they used were turquoise, green, yellow etc.

    I think that Princess Kate will be setting some trends. Feathers are definitely in, crystals (for those of us who don’t have the real thing). Eye popping turquoise, shades of fuchsia, orange, chartreuse.

    Leather bracelets – thin leather cord and bead bracelets, with clasps or wrapped. Also flat leather cuffs with bead embroidery, focals, or chunky metal closures.

    The earthy, natural look paired with bright & bold neons! It might sound odd, but it can be pulled off when done right. I’ve seen so much of this trend lately in jewelry AND clothing! =)

    Bracelets (strung on Zamba Pro) and Earrings (on french wires)… natural elements mixed with fresh summer colors. Wear single bracelets or layer them. Easy, wear-what-you-love style!

    Anything turquiouse or coral – a pop of color. Especially naturals- wood/stone.

    This summer, I think pairing simplicity with color will be the hottest trend. Think long, thin chains with colorful gemstone accents draped over flowing tops. The more effortless, the better. Even a plain silver strand worn doubled up could be the perfect touch to anything you pull out of your closet!

    I think chandelier earrings are coming back big this year. All kinds from small to very long. Also, I’m thinking “less is more” in terms of jewelry, more understated can be very striking!

    I believe multi-chain necklaces or jewelry made with different types of chain will be big in summer. Also feather earrings & bangles.

    This summer I hear coral is the color to wear. Plus, feathers and the Southwest vibe may have one last big hurrah before fall! For the trend-phobic – a little feather bobby pin in your hair is all you need!

    I’ve seen a lot of bright colors. Turquoise and fuchsia seem to be trendy. The heavier style jewelry reminiscent of the 80’s. And a lot of the flowered fabric I always associate with Hawaii because my Mom had a dress with those flowers while she was in Hawaii with my Dad decades ago.

    I think feathers will be everywhere. As a high school teacher I have seen my students wearing more slender colorful stripped feathers in their hair this spring. Lots of bright colors too.

    Bracelets, bracelets, bracelets! Layering several bracelets using colored wire, colorful beads, with a cord or leather base so it’s lightweight, colorful to match bright summertime outfits, and designs that are fun! ….and, don’t forget a charm or two!

    Hi!
    I think the biggest trends will be big, bold and colorful bracelets with matching earrings done up in lots of mixed media….feathers, fibers, leather, lace and such.

    Feathers from Orbitz not only for the hair, but with earrings and some bling and beads added. The feathers can be multicolored and layered as well.

    I have been seeing a lot of bold colors. Pink and teal I think will both be making a splash. Also big bold necklaces seem to be hot and who doesn’t love some statement earrings!
