Hi y'all, welcome back! I'm psyched to show you what I have so far with the souvenir spoon jewelry line! My hope with this blog post is to show you a bit of my design process and where I am with all the pieces and parts.
A little recap before we get started:
What is this? Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B'Sue Boutiques is holding a master class with about 55 designers to come up with a cohesive jewelry line. My line will be a "travel series" made from souvenir spoons!
How much will the jewelry sell for? The goal in the challenge is to make a line that will retail for anywhere from $15 - $50. And this is where the challenge comes. I do jewelry that blows that price point to hell, but I've mainly focused on labor intensive, one-of-a-kind pieces that are more about learning new techniques than selling. This challenge will help me focus to design a line of jewelry in the price range that will still be handmade and unique, but also affordable!
When will the line be ready? Our next blog post in March is the final reveal (SQUEE!) and after that, I will be going live on this site to sell what I have.
I won't lie. I haven't been working on the line much these past few weeks as I've had lots of other things going on, but things are starting to gel. I'm still working on the designs and figuring out what works, what doesn't.
I plan to make some tassel necklaces with these - I think. I dunno. I need a day or two to play, not think and just tinker. I have one more month to go and I tend to work better under pressure and a deadline. Right now, I'm just too tired to know what to do. I'll have a eureka moment anytime now. Or not. LOL!!
Meanwhile, my blog buddies are knocking stuff out of the park! Please go check out their amazing work!
