“Love, love, love,” as the Beatles said, “All you need is love.” And this time of year you need to be working on your Valentine’s jewelry line so product is ready to hit the shelf by early January. In 2012 we expect the following trends to dominate handcrafted jewelry sales for the holiday.
Crystal sales are rebounding in a big way and Swarovski ‘s recent launch of a series of heart crystal pendants is sure to make an impact for Valentines 2012 gift sales.
Hand Stamped Custom Charms
The hand stamping trend is ideally suited for this occasion. Think initials on trees, pet names, love quotations and anniversary dates. The jewelry making possibilities are endless.
Love makes the spirit soar. Bird and angel motifs are powerful symbols of love, freedom and sincerity. Combine wing designs with traditional hearts for a more edgy and contemporary look.
Fidelity Locks and Keys
Locks and Keys are still hot as symbols of devotion. There are a lot of silver charms, pendants and stamps available for this bestselling concept.
