Part 2 : Blog Hop with B’Sue Boutiques build a line challenge

In the past 3 weeks I have been very busy building my new jewelry line.  I am excited to say it is the cutest line I have ever made.  It flows with the pastel colors of the season; Spring and Summer. These are my favorite colors.  I have a fun time making this line as it is pretty, adorable, gorgeous, whimsical. and lovely.  Take a look at some of the latest pictures of my new line.

The making of the faux agates that I used in my bug bodies.  It takes several steps  to make these bodies.  The pictures show below one of the first stages is making the layers  of the agates, then turning them into layered canes .  Now I can make the cabochons.

I sand and buff each cabochon to bring out a shine resembling tumbled rocks.    1-DSC_3277   I love making these as no two are a like.  When I start to buff them  I get so excited on how you can look  through and see the layers like a real stone.  Then I decide which one will make a cool bug body.

07-DSC_3285

Just look at the shine and the depth.  It is so cool.! This was my new year challenge to get a great shine on my polymer, and I DID IT!

My first Love Beetle Rocks turned out great in pink.  I decided to use leaves in  my design to depict the wings of the beetles.  So through out my line you will see leaves, pearls and flowers.16-DSC_3366

I made green, blue, pink in two shades, marsala, purple, turquoise, and scrap beetle bodies.

Picture below show how  I decide on how I want the necklaces to look.  Deciding which bug looks good in their body and with their leaf and flower is serious Beetle business.

3-DSC_3855Of course, this is not the final look for these beetles.

08-DSC_4166

This is how five new necklaces look like for my new line.

Then decided on another look using the leaves a different direction.  Below are 4 necklaces with a different twist.

35-DSC_4193

31-DSC_4189

I also wanted my line to have different size beetles so I expanded my line to include a smaller beetle stamping.  I am still using my faux stones, leaves, pearls, and flowers. Still striving to keep my new line cohesive.  I believe I have accomplished this with my line.

28-DSC_3436

Made from my faux agates on the luscious silverware finish, which is of the highest quality and simply gorgeous.  Notice the little silver beetles. Just a hint of Whimsy in these necklaces.

I hope you can tell that I have been seriously thinking about this new line and having fun with the whole design.

NEXT UP …… BRACELETS AS A PART OF “THE LOVE BEETLE ROCKS!”

23-DSC_4142 21-DSC_4140

I am using faux turquoise with Rosy Copper finishes.  WOWSER!  These bracelets ROCK with faux agates and scrap polymer.

 The green and pink agates are with a brass ox finish.

5-DSC_4108 6-DSC_411119-DSC_4137

Now you have seen 2 parts of my line of 5

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MORE

Bring on the earrings.  They are still in the making but I wanted to show a sneak peak

9-DSC_4298 5-DSC_4288

4-DSC_4287 6-DSC_4289

I am also working on Brooches and Rings which will conclude my new line. But you will have to wait till March 20th when I reveal my complete new jewelry line.  But I will tell you this has been a blast and I even have extended my line out  into two more  lines that all tie into this line.  Will share those pieces between now and March 2oth. So stay tuned….. Thank you for your comments and visiting my blog.

What I have Learned   about me…..

 This challenge has opened up my creativity to the point that I have my own style that can be recognized by others as my look.  I have been able to combine my love of polymer and vintage inspired jewelry.  Keeping my flowers and adding the whimsy of the beetles helped  me take my line into sub-lines. Something I have been able to accomplish and will share my thoughts and process of these lines  before the final blog hop.  Interesting that my beetle line has another focus which is my faux polymer stones.  The turquoise looks very real and love the technique I learned from a class with Tory Hughes.  Tory also taught me the technique for faux agates.  The technique has opened up all kinds of possibilities to use with my jewelry line. So I am including the faux stones  as much as possible.  I included the flower beetles for the women that just wants a little beetle showing.  They look like they are in the garden of flowers and are not the focus but adds to the whimsy of the line.

 I feel the women who wears my jewelry loves color and are confident  to wear whimsical jewelry. They want to make their own statement which will invoke conversation.  They love artisan jewelry because it is something you don’t see everywhere.

Finally, I want to thank B’Sue Boutiques for the master class.  I am learning more and more everyday from Brenda and the others in the group.  This has been a great thought provoking class.  I feel like I have already won and will take this experience to the next level.  I am more focused and have a direction. Learning the history of jewelry designs and famous designers makes me more knowledgeable and I can educate others.  Learning that the finishes I use are important and are high quality US made finishes making my jewelry more desirable shows that I care about my customers.

      Thank you Susan yes I wanted to make smaller beetles and use the smaller beetles for people who don’t want that big statement of the beetle. And I also use the flowers so it looked like the Beetles were crawling out from underneath our so to speak. In my line can go with the faux stone in so many different directions but still look like it’s part of my line with or without a beetle. My mom would like to see me do ladybugs and I have started if you with ladybugs again thank you

And Rosie quartzs pink is awesome with copper colors. Who knew, oh you probably already knew that. LOL! So now that I have earrings that I need to finish and I think I have a couple of brooches. So now that I have a spring and summer line with the colors of Pantone, I am already thinking about the colors of fall which includes pink.

I’ve been working on polymer for three years this is my fourth year and I finally can create something with a beautiful finish without varnishes glazes. I learned that if you sanded well and get all the services really smooth it buffed up in a matter of seconds. That was my other goal was to get really cool finishes on my polymer pieces and I’ve done that

I still remember when I made chain out of polymer clay because I colored silver people thought it was real chain until they held it. But making these faux stones fools a lot of people till they pick them up. I love that about polymer clay and they make great bodies for my Beetles

      Thank you Judy, when I look back at what I thought was great I now look at it is learning process. I’m real proud of my polymer in the classes with Via Artistica have helped me get better with my polymer creations. But this group is one-of-a-kind and has given me lots of inspiration and I think between you all and Brenda and practicing my skills every day, it is now showing up in my work.
