Every year the handmade craft world has popular item themes and trends. Sometimes they are inspired by the past, while other times they are totally unique to the current market. Here are some coolest craft fair trends we noticed for this year.
1. Copper Jewelry
Metal jewelry is always in style, but this year we noticed an abundance of copper accessories. One artist pointed out that the price of silver has increased a lot in recent years, so jewelry makers are seeking out other metals that are less expensive. Despite the lower price tag, copper is really beautiful and looks great on everyone!
2. Snarky Quotes
Funny yet snarky quotes are also popular this year. They’re usually short and sweet, consisting of one to three words. You can buy them on cross-stitched hoop art as well as fridge magnets and prints. What a fun way to show off your sarcastic side or to give as a gift to your quirkiest friend!
3. Cacti Art
These beautiful desert plants were seen on photos transferred onto canvas, jewelry, and greeting cards. Southwestern themes have gained in popularity over the past few years, and the majestic saguaro cactus is the most recognizable.
4. Inlaid Stone Necklaces
Hippie-style inlaid stone necklaces continue to be found at craft shows. I noticed both sparkly druzy stones as well as subdued semiprecious gemstones necklaces. The more intricate the surrounding metalwork and etching, the better.
5. Wooden Beads
In a nod to 60s and 70s jewelry, wooden beads are back in a big way. They were paired with chain and metal beads to create contrast and texture. Wood is becoming popular again in jewelry because it’s lightweight and easy to match with most clothing colors.
6. Coffee Beans
Another fun trend I saw at several craft shows was coffee beans in unexpected places. From candles with beans within the wax to ground coffee body scrubs, they are sure to awaken your senses! The smell is so divine and universally appreciated.
7. Crystal Points
Lastly, crystal points are a hot jewelry element at 2017’s craft shows. The most unique way it was in an elongated post earring wrapped with wire. Crystal points could also be found on long necklaces, hair accessories, and rings. Their natural beauty pairs well with a variety of metals.
