Today we have guest blogger Shirley Moore talking about designing jewelry for the season without getting too kitschy if that isn’t your style.
Hi everyone! I’m Shirley Moore, and I’m thrilled to be your guest blogger today.
I’m sure many of you already have a stock of seasonal designs ready to stock in your store. But what if you don’t, what should you create?
Personally, I’m not a fan of ‘themed jewelry’. I adore wearing my jewelry, and it irritates me if I have a piece that I love wearing, but can only wear it at certain times of the year.
These little mummy beads are adorable, but can’t really wear them in September, now can I?
But this beautiful pumpkin bead can be worn all throughout the fall.
I try to think outside the box on theme colors as well. Red and Green are the staple colors for Christmas. But you don’t have to stay with the traditional dark red and forest green….
Pair these green transparent beauties from Sue with some of these:
And, voila! You have a perfect pair of earrings for the Christmas season, that you can also wear throughout the year!
Don’t box yourself in with descriptions either. Diana
has these listed as chili peppers, but….
paired with these cuties from Kristen
, you now have Christmas colors with your own style!
Valentine’s Day is a tough one. Hearts and Roses abound! But, what if cutesy just isn’t your bag? I am slowly learning the lesson…don’t create for the market, create what you love. Nothing sucks the creativity out of you faster than to make something because you have to…
You can still create pieces for the season, just do it your way!
Thanks for reading!
