Build A Line Challenge…the Finale!

First, I would like to thank the fabulous Brenda Sue from B’Sue Boutiques for teaching this wonderfully challenging class! To say that she has been merely a teacher would be untrue; Brenda Sue has been so much more than that! She has been a mentor, a muse, and a friend to each and every one of us in this class! She is wicked awesome (had to throw in some Boston)!

Trust me when I say that I have struggled and struggled some more with this challenge! The participants in the “Build A Line” Challenge have been so supportive and inspirational! Everyone has been great and always provide such invaluable feedback! I don’t know if I could have finished without the encouragement from Brenda Sue and each and every member of this class! Having been part of this group has truly helped me grow to be a better jewelry designer (if that’s what I am)!

My hope is that the members of this class continue to stay in touch; it would be sad to have gone through this challenge together and not remain friends! 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that each and every piece in my line has a component or two from bsueboutiques.com! Whether it’s one of their beautiful brass stampings, silverware stampings, cameos, flowers, findings, and beads; B’Sue Boutiques has touched it! Please take a few minutes and see all the fabulous products they have to offer…you won’t be disappointed!

My line is Victorian-inspired, with necklaces, bracelets, brooches, earrings, and sets! 

Now for what you’ve come here to see…I hope you like it!

    Yours is a sweet line, romantic, dear Victoriana, I love it, Denise. I am so happy you jumped in here with us, so glad you stuck it out and wow, what positive results! You did a great job with your lines and your blog. We WILL stay in touch; we’re all members of the Creative Group, too, and the class will go on for summary for a few weeks. After that, some may have other things to do but there are definitely some here who want to pop back in and discuss some of the things we talked about here as well as more. You are all my core test group; I can do nothing but benefit as a teacher if we keep having our discussions. Perhaps we will even have some alumni hops to see where we are at, down the road! For sure, I will teach this class again, but it will be limited to no more than twenty, and it will never be as SPECIAL as this one was. We will all never forget it, me most of all.

    I love your sets! The purple set especially, so sweet! I agree with Brenda, I don’t think we’ll lose each other for all the reasons she gave 🙂

    Love, luv the vintage piece in Lavender. I too adore cameos, The bird cameo in pinks and green just wonderful. Don’t worry this group we pretty much hang around. Such inspiration here.

    Oh, wow, Denise. I love, love your line! I must say it is one of my favorites of them all! I love every piece, especially the purple one with the bow…I’m guessing it’s a brooch. What a great job! Congratulations! I’m really looking forward to seeing more of your creations.
