Not everyone who makes artisan jewelry bothers to follow the fashion trends, but a number of us do. Even if it's just to keep up with what are the hot colors or what shape necklines are coming up, paying attention to fashion can greatly increase your sales. But I'm not here to convince you to do it, just to report on what I've found ;-)
Fashion Trendsetter has lots of articles about fashion trends. Here are two I specifically found helpful: where they come from and how the magazines decide which to cover. Both posts are interesting reading if you like to keep up with the catwalk.
