Build A Line Challenge Final Reveal: The Birds and the Bees

It's been a long, crazy ride through this challenge featuring components from  B'Sue Boutiques. We've learned and discussed many topics in class, including just what the heck IS a line? Now I know through the guidance of Brenda and my classmates. A jewelry line consists of cohesive design elements, such as focal, theme, color, and era. I discovered my era is neo-Victorian. I love the feminine design elements of that period combined with a modern sensibility, so vintage modern, if you will.

I chose birds and bees because the brass stampings not only possess personality, they evoke the natural world combined with whimsy. If you read my last BALC blog post, you will notice that my style changed from shabby chic to neo-Victorian. My newly styled necklace is done in soft, muted cream and gold, the chain is lovely vintage rosary chain.



The focal and charm I chose for my bracelet is different, yet still encompasses the bird and bee theme, and the vintage chain is repeated for cohesion:



My second necklace and bracelet set is done in soft copper and pink colors and finished with an aged brass rollo chain:

 
Again, the same bird and bee in different hues as my first bracelet and the same brass chain as the necklace for cohesion:
 
 
And lastly, a coordinated pair of earrings:

This was a great learning experience for me, both fun and frustrating at times, but the end result is pure joy. Thanks so much for checking out my blog; I love comments! Please visit my classmate's blogs below to discover their new jewelry lines and leave them a friendly comment!
