Inspirations: Autumn winter jewellery trends

So what jewellery trends might be influencing your making this autumn and winter? The London Jewellery School team take a look at the catwalks to pick out a few themes that might inspire your jewellery making (but please remember the difference between taking inspiration and copying).

Silver rings with coloured stones from the Proenza Schouler

Think big, fashion and the catwalks are all about statement pieces. This means less of a focus on expensive metals and precious stones. Instead size and colour means the use of semiprecious stones, and materials such as Perpsex, resin, leather and feathers – fur has even been incorporated into fashion pieces.

Leather and fur cuff from Fendi

Jewellery makers might want to put their own spin on chokers and cuffs – beading and wire work with crystals and glass beads or semi precious stones will work well here, as will soutache.

Large feature beads are perfect for these statement pieces but seed beads will also be popular for more ethnic inspired chokers.

Crystal collar by Givenchy

If you want large coloured cabochon-type elements, think about creating your own in resin.

Cuffs in Perpsex or leather will definitely make a statement and you can also think about combining leather with chains to create fun fashion pieces that will catch the eye.
