Accessorized Eccentricity

DIY jewelry shifts toward bold aesthetics as a means for self-expression

Implications - As methods of self expression continue to dominate consumer culture, especially among teens, DIY tactics are following suit with more flamboyant alternatives. Leaving subtlety behind, consumers are opting to create jewelry pieces that focus on eccentric shapes and over-the-top imagery. The use of bold features reflects a shift in maker culture toward more unique aesthetics reflective of individual taste and preferences.
