“Don’t be afraid to mix silver, gold and even brass or copper in one look. While you don’t want to go overboard, you can subtly bring out different tones in layers that catch the eye and complement your wardrobe,” said Janet Kinkade, JK Founder.
Alpine, UT (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
The adage “less is more” does not hold true for jewelry fashion this fall – layering is where the trends are stacking up for the upcoming season. This is just one of the fall and spring jewelry trends Janet Kinkade, Jewel Kade Founder, President & Designer, will be sharing from center stage at the Utah Valley Women’s Expo September 7-8.
Other fall 2012 trends include mixed metals and customization. “Don’t be afraid to mix silver, gold and even brass or copper in one look. While you don’t want to go overboard, you can subtly bring out different tones in layers that catch the eye and complement your wardrobe,” said Kinkade.
As for customization, the trend is leaning toward one-of-a-kind pieces that express an individual’s personality or interests and celebrate family. Companies like Jewel Kade are among the nation’s leaders in offering custom jewelry. Its top-selling Photo Charms are handcrafted by production artists with personal photos and designs that customers create online. Other popular custom Jewel Kade pieces include the Sadie Pearl Necklace and Jack Tags that customers can have hand-stamped with personal names or messages. “We’ve definitely seen a surge in demand for custom pieces – there is something profoundly meaningful in wearing pieces that tell our story and share what we love,” said Kinkade.
This coming spring, it will be all about color. Vibrant hues borrowed from nature’s brightest displays will be everywhere, including sorbet, coral and lemon yellow. Jewel Kade, which just released its JK Fall & Winter 2012 catalog, is currently designing pieces for its JK Spring & Summer 2013 catalog that will be in step with the upcoming “shade parade.” Expect its handcrafted charms to pop with bright tones, and its necklaces, bracelets and earrings to include splashes of color, as well. “I’m excited to be working with some of these brighter colors,” said Kinkade. “My designs typically tend toward neutral tones, so it will be fun to do a vintage take on a palette of colors that push the envelope for Jewel Kade.”
