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!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Our Stock Lane Paper heart tags have a wonderful antique look to them. Illustrations of pears, apples, grapes and deep greenery make the perfect harvest theme papers for autumn scrapbooking or Thanksgiving table scatter.

I hand punched these 2 inch paper hearts from beautiful paper I purchased in Venice, Italy. The rich colors of the fruits and vines bring me back to a special time of wandering the cobblestone streets and canals of this magical city with my family.

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

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:

I knew I didn’t have much in my shop that could be considered “wedding colors” but I thought silver gray and white would be great for that – so this is the printable paper pack I created.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Yay for Gray!

I love the neutral background of our printable party poster because the cement gray makes the bright pink stand out even more and it’s a nice fit for some party planners who are sick of mundane white backgrounds. I’ve used this digital design for sending congratulatory emails to friends and family on many occasions. I’ve changed the font color from pink to Red and Blue and I can do the same for our customers. I love custom designs.

The pink and gray tassel component inspired me to create this feminine gemstone necklace.

The pink rhodonite gemstones have neutral gray in them and they’re a perfect combination with the pink rose quartz gemstones. Imagine this gemstone necklace worn with a smart white top and a gray skirt.

Make It Metallic

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Metallic is defined as anything made of or looks like its made of metal. Different metals tend to be popular at different times. At this time silver seems to be the hot metallic. I know some who follow the trends, but truthfully its personal preference.

We want to see all your metallics. Tell us all about your metallic item. What is it? What does it do? And so on….

Pam from PearlsVintagebyPam says metallic means tin! I collect unique tins and I found this fantastic guitar tin. It’s clean, it shines and vibrates as it prepares to play for you! Rock and Roll!

Gillian from Gillisflowers said I like playing with different papers and often combine them in different ways. For this metallic looking hair comb I layered a VERY fine and delicate tissue paper in shades of blue on to a piece of silver foil paper. I love the finished effect and this hair comb really looks more like metal than paper.

Linda from LazyYVintage states these lovely green metal angel candle holders are a favorite of mine. They have brass candle holder cups and are painted to look like tarnished copper.

Dawn from DeeDeeSupplies says being a supplies shop I have lots of metal in my shop!! These swirly beads are my favourite at the moment … I love the way they capture and reflect light due to their flowing shape.

Because of this swirly reflective quality they are not only great for statement jewellery but would also be great for home decor design such as wind chimes!

Diana from joliefemmebydiana said a lightweight little bag to use for evening is great with a metallic touch! One of these has gold metallic accents with green and the other has silvery metallic with teal. Both make a great gift!
