Summer Trend to Watch: Wanderlust Style Straight From the Source: Etsy

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 Summer Trend to Watch: Wanderlust Style Straight From the Source article on the Etsy blog.

Let the globetrotting & shopping begin! Japan: Understated Ceramics, Spain: Sculptural Jewelry, Germany: Vintage Rattan, Lithuania: Modern Linen, Netherlands: High-Concept Lighting, India: Block-Printed Textiles, Israel: Leather, France: Soap Making, Italy: Accessories, UK: Typographic Artwork, Australia: Eco-Approach Jewelry, Kenya: Beading Techniques, Canada: Modern Woodworking, Uruguay: Woven Merino Wool Designs are the trends. Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Italy: Accessories

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says:

I’m from Italy, where people are very careful to match everything they wear: from the dress to the shoes. For this particular attention to the accessories, together with other characteristics, Italians are world known for their elegance.

This bracelet can be used either as wedding and as prom corsage. The roses are so tender and the corsage so rich in flowers, that it can enhance any dress, even the simplest! Of course it’s one-of-a-kind, just for a special girl!

Australia: Eco-Approach Jewelry

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDesigns says:

I am an Australian seller, and these earrings fit right into the Australia: Eco-Approach category being made from recycled guitar strings and beads made from recycled paper. They are lightweight and comfortable to wear, and environmentally friendly!

Lois from FeltWithAHeart says:

The colors on my little dog and his mat remind me of sand. He looks so calm, like he’s just been lying in the sun, and I like to mix pretty neutral colors in with the brighter ones in my shop for a lot of variety.

mistycat1234 from carolinagirlz2 says:

I simply love this counted cross stitch design, the colors of blue sea and warm sand and the lovely image of two young children at play. It reminds me of The Little Golden book I would read as a child, A Day At The Beach.

patontheback from patontheback says:

A fabric to please just about anyone, regardless of gender, nationality, age! Fabric can be made into any number of gifts. Stretch this around a frame, and put it on your office wall to take a trip to the beach on your break!

spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt says:

I love neutral colors, especially the lighter earth tones like “Warm Sand” because they work well with just about any color in fashion, home décor, etc. I chose to highlight the fawn deer plaque because I love the mixture of its lighter and darker earth tones … the lighter “Warm Sand” color of the bass wood with the darker earth tones of the fawn deer that result from the hand burning process!

SpoiledFelinesArt

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

Bohemian beauty with matte druzy beads in the colors of a sandy beach. Hand knotted and closes with an artisan bronze clasp. Boho luxe!

zizzybob from zizzybob says:

I designed this quilted fabric postcard myself. It is based on an old National Geographic photo. Fabric postcards are a great way to send a greeting, to friends or family (or just keep it for yourself).

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:

I love delicate shades of gray. It’s a perfect balance for colors in any interior design. Harbor mist is very inspiring. I use these shades as backgrounds for my pastel colleges and drawings. Harbor mist and other shades of gray are also good as a border – passepartout for artistic works on paper. You will find these colors in my shop.

CanisArtStudio

Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor says:

Who knew gray (grey) could have so many different shades yet to me they all evoke a feeling of calm and serenity. This Inukshuk made from stone looks out over mist covered Lake Ontario and was left behind by some visitors to the area. Strength Serenity and a sign of friendship.

TheOldBarnDoor

spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt says:

I love neutral colors, and the soft gray of “Harbor Mist”, while still a neutral, is a departure from the warmer earth tones that I tend to use on my items. It’s a nice cooler earth tone shade, and I love the way it highlights the under belly of our hand carved wood male Baikal Teal duck!

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

My Elephant plunger became a reality after I made my Flamingo Plungers for my Florida friends. In one of my Facebook groups, I was given many suggestions of other plungers. The elephant and giraffe were next, then the flower ones. After the flowers came the Poop Happens and Foxy Lady and Foxy Dude. My last request was for a Retro Camper plunger. I made four different Retro Campers so my potential customer would have a choice. That is my last addition to the plunger family. My home is being overrun by plungers!

JAMsCraftCloset

Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal says:

I am always on the look out for inspirational sayings for my products so when this one came across my path it jumped right at me to make it apart of my collection.

I can do all things is part of Philippians 4:13 and in the world we live in this scripture has great meaning to a lot of us or will if you’re looking for something to hold on to.

This ensemble can be gotten in a lanyard, keychain or dog collar! The gray color makes the wording pop out a great deal!

DesignsbyCristal

Karen Hafel from timetalentjewels says:

As I always look for interesting beads, I stumbled across this Dyed Gray Jasper Bead. There is always something about each stone as the colors come out. In this stone, I could see blue. Gray and blue, a fun potato chip spacer and some fire polish, just a fun necklace for the hot summer months! After all isn’t Gray the new Black?

friedasophie from friedasophie says:

I live in San Francisco and we have daily foggy days. When I found this stone it reminded me of those gloomy beautiful misty afternoons here!

Meet a lime punch monster!

This super fluffy monster likes to break the order running everywhere with his horse on a stick. He is incredibly fun and groovy. The monster couldn’t have been a different color. He chose him to be bright, juicy and please the eye of everyone who looks at him.

Mishelino

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

Lime Punch…what an exciting color. When I was painting my Happy Dot vase, the Lime Punch was the color I needed to add a ‘punch’ of color to help the vase stand out. This vase turned out to be one of my favorite ones. It is a HAPPY vase made with HAPPY DOTS!!! A perfect vase to brighten any room or as a gift for a ‘happy’ friend.

Normally you don’t think of lime punch with the holidays, but the creator of this fabric did! It’s a very joyful color, and makes things pop when you use it with others. Brighten someone’s day with this!
