LONDON, September 7, 2010 - Artisanal skills in jewellery will be increasingly sought after and appreciated in the 2011/12 seasons, trends guru Paola De Luca said today.

"There is a return of hand-made, beautiful things," De Luca, Creative Director of Arezzo, Italy-based Trends Jewellery Forecasting (TJF), told a trends seminar at the International Jewellery London (IJL) trade fair.

"There is a stronger appreciation of the real stuff, not of fluff."

De Luca also identified several emerging trends around the world for the 2011/2012 seasons, such as "New Sobriety" -- an association with simplicity;
"Over the Rainbow" -- the delight of extreme colours; "Back to the Roots" -- earthy, natural, tribal themes; and "Funthology" -- whimsical inspiration, fantasy and fairy tales.

IJL ends on September 8.
