Today, on The Studio, we’re sharing three necklace projects from Rio’s Winter Fashion Trends Project page. These necklaces hearken back to the black and white style of the Roaring ’20s. In long lengths, they swing on dancers, sway in casual conversation, and accentuate the neck of the wearer, already fashionably exposed by the short, sassy bob hairstyle of the era. Be inspired by these and ALL the projects on our Fashion Trends webpage and see where they take your own designs!
We’d like to invite you to our new Fashion Trends page for some inspiration this holiday season, and introduce a couple of our hottest new projects on The Studio today. We’re thinking crystals, swank, sophisticated fun, and jazz that drapes around your neck and dangles from your ears. We hope that you and your customers enjoy them, and that you can use them as a creative springboard for your own line.
New fashion-forward, statement-making ear cuffs are overtaking the real estate north of the lobe. From the runways of Paris to the red carpets of Hollywood to the benches of jewelers across the country, they have been everywhere this fall. Etsy designers have been hard at work creating their own take on the look and, today on The Studio, we’ve featured a few of our favorite Etsy ear cuffs.
After the many hours of work you put into creating jewelry that others love, your line deserves a good story that accentuates it, puts the marketing edge on it, makes it stand out! That includes your jewelry line for Fall and Winter, which is just around the corner! In our latest contest, “Show Us Your Fall/Winter Fashion Trends,” which wrapped up late last week, we asked you to create a Pinterest board of your own fashion trends/creations for the upcoming season, and we asked you to present a story about your line there as well. Meet our winners!
Today, on The Studio, be inspired by a collection of great jewelry projects for fall/winter, then head over to our latest contest on Pinterest, our “Show Us Your Fall/Winter Fashion Trends” contest! You can win $50, $100, or $200 in credit with us here at Rio Grande. Imagine what you can make with that! And hurry, our deadline is August 15!

Pantone, the global authority on color, leads the way in predicting the color trends for the season. Take a look at The Studio today to see Rio’s take on this season’s spectrum of color!
