Are you ready for a sizzling hot and stylish summer 2007 to show off your feminine, bold and chic side? I am again playing trend watcher and would like to share some of my favorites with you to help you adorn your unique essence.
Metallics, sculpted resins in smooth and bold designs, semi-precious gemstones, Murano-style glass, shell and crystal glass are all setting the glamorous trends in fashion jewelry this summer.
Let’s look at how these materials are being used to create artistic beauty:
o Heavy necklaces and cuff bracelets
o Chokers and shorter necklaces
o Large pendants
o Earrings and bracelets using concentric circles and bold loops
o Link bracelets
o Brooches reflecting a garden theme with blossoms, butterflies, lady bugs, and dragonflies
o Chunky rhinestone or Swarovski-crystal rings
Naturally, we can’t forget one of our favorite accessories. Handbags! A handbag is the ultimate accessory to complete your outfit and adorn your uniqueness. The big themes for summer 2007 are:
o Oversized bags in patent leather, pebble-grain leather, clear plastic or quilt
o Metallic bags in silver, gold and bronze

You’re a style trendsetter with any of these handbags.
