WELCOME BACK TO MY “ADVENTURES IN THE SEA” Journey
What an adventure the last 28 days have been. My design line is really coming along great and I’m very happy with my progress. I plan on having 8 levels in my pyramid with prices ranging in Level 1 thru 4 from $15.00 to $50.00. Level 5 thru 8 are priced higher and are limited editions.
When starting the process of writing my blog and adding pictures something was missing. Fireworks started going off in my head and I had one of my aha moments … I need names for my jewelry pieces. So let me introduce you to a few pieces in my new jewelry line ..
Level 1 ..
Adventure In The Sea Earrings .. are made with shells, B’sue components and of course pearls ..
Adventure In The Sea Earrings .. Price Range $15.00 to $20.00
Level 2 ..
Adventurous Mermaid .. I did run into an issue with my reversible mermaid necklaces shown below. Originally I wanted to use mother of pearl as my center piece but they were all to thick. The front and back of my B’sue components would not seal tight. After many hours of brainstorming and walking the hobby store isles I found a solution for my reversible Adventurous Mermaid Necklace .. Burlap .. what do you think ?
Adventurous Mermaid .. Price $32.00
Doesn’t every lady want to fill like a Goddess sometime in their life?

My process for designing is normally done in my head and it makes me a little crazy sometimes. Going thru this procedure I have learned to prepare, take control and to stop over thinking my designing. I am a huge visual, I now have a dedicated area for my components and beads for the projects I am working on.
The B’sue Boutiques Build A Line Challenge (BALC) is being taught by our mentor Brenda Sue Lansdowne and is sponsored by B’Sue Boutiques .. What a fun Group ..
Did you watch Brenda’s video “Jewelry Design One of a Kind Pieces Versus a Cohesive Jewelry Line from B’sue”? Wow what an eye opener and it really got my juices flowing .. If you haven’t watched this video you should take the time ..
