Top Etsy Trend Predictions For 2018

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak – peak – post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the Top Etsy Trend Predictions For 2018 article on the Etsy blog.

The trends are: are Home Decor (Wabi – Sabi), Jewelry (Choker Revamp, Mix-And-Match Earrings), Weddings (Jumpsuits) and Hot Hue (Ultra Violet). Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Jewelry

Mix-And-Match Earrings

Emily Tan from QuirkyEleganceEm says:

Monochrome + mother of pearl + brass wire-wrap = a pair of fashion forward and special handmade earrings.

I enjoy making wire wrapped earrings, and have been experimenting using this particular herring bone wrap with non-round beads. I chose these teardrop mother of pearl beads for their luster and decided it would be interesting and very modern to have one side white and the other black. Wire wrap can be associated with fanciful and heady designs but I find these wonderfully simple and yet bold.

YOKO from yokojewelry says:

I’ve been thought earrings should be exact same pair. But not anymore! I love to design asymmetrical jewelry. It gives you sassy look!

Hot Hue

Ultra Violet

JO from alustrousjewellery says:

This Amethyst is a beautiful deep violet shade. This would make a lovely gift for some one special.

I set this natural Amethyst 8 x 6 mm oval gem, into a back set pendant setting, I choose to hang it on a diamond curb chain to complement the shape of the oval Amethyst. I have threaded the chain through the pendant setting so it hangs and slides along the chain.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

I love creating home and garden decor items with colorful beads. This hanging pendant features bright shades of blue and purple and a fun moon and stars theme in ultra violet!

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

Hot Hues…Ultra Violet…Yes! I have the perfect hand-painted serving plate for this…It seemed to be the perfect plate for painting using one of my favorite colors. Ultra violet and yellow are such ‘happy’ colors, so I now have a ‘happy’ plate!
