Barbara from MermaidsHatbox states I love the roaring 20th and I love cloche hats.
This quiet gray jacquard fabric, slightly shimmering and the ribbon with metal beads and sequins gives the hat a noble touch that fits into the 20th. The velvet ribbon is up cycled from an old theater costume and ended in a smoky blue fan made of wild silk.

Elevated Halloween Trends for 2018: 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 Elevated Halloween Trends for 2018: Etsy article on the Etsy blog.

DECOR (Fright Factory, True Crime, Mysticism, Skull Planters) and COSTUMES (Coordinated Costumes, Girl Power, Smudge-Proof “Makeup” are the trends on Etsy! Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Mysticism

mistycat1234 from carolinagirlz2 says:

I think this black cat and floating pumpkins represent the “Mysticism” Etsy trend theme. I have lived with many a black cat and they are all spooky lovely creatures!

Sargasso Sea – Pantone Fashion Color For Fall/Winter 2018

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2018 is Sargasso Sea.

PANTONE 19-4031
Sargasso Sea

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Sargasso Sea! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Margie Sarrao from ZenCatPottery says:

Sargasso Sea is a gorgeous deep navy. I have used the ceramic technique known as “sgraffito” to decorate this spoon rest. Sgraffito is scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting color. In this case I scratched through a layer of dark blue slip (liquid clay) to reveal the white clay beneath.

Sgraffito has been used on walls in Europe since classical times and was popularized in Italy in the 15th and 16th centuries. It can even be found in African art! Sgraffito is my favorite technique for decorating pottery because I love color and because it gives me a chance to draw freely, without following/tracing a pattern.

zizzybob from zizzybob says:

A very popular thing to do when in Key West Florida is to take a sunset cruise. This card represents that. It would also make a great card for any sailing fans.

mistycat1234 from carolinagirlz2 says:

This fat quarter embodies the essence of Sargasso Sea, with it’s boundless blue! Use this fabric for quilting, doll making, general sewing, or kids crafts.

Margie from ZenCatPottery states the vintage African trade beads in this earring are fabulous Quetzal Green (which I would call teal)! I had 2 of these FABULOUS authentic African trade beads left and I wanted to make earrings that were a bit “ethnic” looking but that also had great sway and movement. I think earrings should move when you walk, don’t you?!?

I love true vintage trade beads because of their history. Between the 15th and 20th centuries, as new trade routes were established between Africa and Europe, trade beads were used as currency. Most were glass and made in Italy. 1,000s of trade beads would act as a ballast for ships on their way to Africa, and the African goods did the same on the return trip!

Karen from timetalentjewels says when I made this necklace I already knew the name because of the beads “Quetzal Green”. Beautiful beads of Moss Agate, New Jade, Blue Calsilica Jasper, Teal Lava Rocks just whispered the name. Such an interesting array of colors.

Nancy from EponasCrystals said apatite and teal agate both mimic the colors of Quetzal Green. Matte Pacific Blue Apatite, aqua glass beads and teal banded agate beads are hand strung and knotted. The silk tassel is a luscious ocean blue color. Guess you can tell what my favorite color is!
