Build a Line Challenge, B'Sue Boutiques 2016 - Part One

Howdy, y'all!

Thank you so much for visiting my page! I'm part of an amazing group of jewelry artisans participating in a challenge to build their line of distinctive jewelry.

This is gonna be short and sweet. My line is building on an idea that I had last year using souvenir spoons. I'm expanding on the designs that I was working with last year that had potential, but didn't quite make the mark for me. Here's last year's line and here's what I want to do now.

My goal this year is to expand on two styles of a travel-themed line:

Steamer Trunk - Old World, sepia-toned graphics pared w/warm metals that evokes a bygone age with a twist ;)

Route 66 - Fun, colorful and kitsch! Think of the the road trips you had with your besties traveling the US.

Thanks for visiting! x

Altered Altoid Tins

Hi y'all!  Ever browse through Pinterest, see a project and go, "Crap. I have to try that NOW."? Yeah, me too. I saw some lovely Altoid tin art, did a search, saw MORE lovely Altoid tin art and had to make some of my own. I'm have several designs and themes in mind, but here are a couple I've finished up.
