I will draw on my experience over the last 2 years of designing for fashion retail. The presentation will cover the similarities and differences between polymer art jewelry and fashion jewelry with discussions on how to find more outlets for polymer in the enormous fashion industry. I will also provide many photographic images illustrating how well polymer design fits into today’s fashion trends.
- – Explore ways of adapting polymer jewelry designs to be more ‘Fashion Friendly’ while staying true to your own artistic roots.
- – View photos of trending designer jewelry that illustrates how many polymer artists are already creating work that would fit into the fashion world.
- – Discuss ways to get a ‘start’ in marketing your polymer jewelry for fashion retail and wholesale.
- – Look at the history that the use of plastic mediums have played in jewelry design over the last 70 years.
