Welcome to Guyot Bros Irregular E-letter

We ran across the following Jewelry Trends article in the August issue of Craft Trends Magazine and thought you might find it interesting and useful.  Thank you to the Magazine for the permission to include this article in our E-letter.  


As we consider the kinds of jewelry todayís consumers want to buy (or make), itís important to take a look at the hottest trends in this marketplace.

  • Magnetic necklaces and bracelets are very versatile. These items can be found at some of the most trendy boutiques throughout the country. The beads are actually magnetic and allow the user to create many different looks simply by connecting the beads in multiple sections.

  • Wood beads are seen in all of the high-end department stores. Mostly used in necklaces, shades vary from light to dark and the dimension of the wood beads range from an 8-mm. To a 12-mm. ball.

  • Pearls with crystals are all the rage. Single-or multi-strand with medium-sized pearls and crystal roundels are sure to dress up any pair of jeans.


  • Shells are clearly the big winner this summer and fall in both jewelry design and home decorating. Shells are used in necklaces and bracelets and are usually shaped in an oblong pendant.

  • Chandelier earrings are on every red carpet and are further bolstered in popularity by being featured on the must-see television show of the moment, Desperate Housewives.

  • Hand jewelry fits around wrists like a bracelet and connects to fingers with an extended piece. This is also available for ankles and toes. This Eastern-inspired jewelry is very trendy in Hollywood.

  • Large gems in neutral muted colors are being used as focal beads.

  • Multiple layered necklaces offer a collaged look. Mix and match different colors, textures, and sizes of beads, ribbons and charms to create one-of-a-kind pieces.

  • Silver circles the size of a half dollar have been extremely popular this year with newscasters, celebrities, and everyday consumers.

  • Name bracelets in both plastic and high-end beads are popular again.

  • Stretch bracelets made with gemstones are a look easily translated to a DIY project.

  • Charm bracelets and decorative key chains dress up purses, luggage, shoes, and backpacks.

  • Beaded flip flops are out of control. These sandals can range from $2.99-$99.99.

  • Designer pet collars with rhinestones and charms get the furriest family members into the jewelry game.
