From Eco Book Art Necklaces to Upscale Friendship Bracelets

By: Jana Pijak - Jan 10, 2016
These 2015 jewelry trends range from dried foliage bracelets to eco book art necklaces. Following in the footsteps of DIY bloggers and craft lovers, major and independent brands are offering luxe accessories with a handmade feel.

Embracing the maker culture of today, jewelry brands are taking DIY practices and elevating them to new and sophisticated heights. In addition to book art necklaces that are intricately constructed, other DIY-themed notables include edible salt and wool fringe necklaces. While the first example is an inexpensive alternative to traditional crystals, the second can be worn as both a jewelry piece or as a vibrant scarf.

Furthermore, these 2015 jewelry trends include pop culture-themed and luxe accessories like sci-fi ring collections that pay tribute to the latest 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' film or popular fast food items like pizza and fries.
