Build A Line Challenge From B’sue Boutiques .. Clever Designs by Jann .. Part Three

.. Welcome Back To My Journey ..

Adventures In The Sea

Today is March 20th and the end of our Design Challenge and Blog Hop .. My adventures will still continue designing different sea related jewelry and more .. I enjoyed this experience and learned different things from Brenda Sue Lansdowne and the rest of the members who participated in this challenge ..

Several changes were made to my design line since Blog I and II .. originally I named my jewelry by individual pieces .. WHAT WAS I THINKING .. now each series level has a name .. so simple and easy for me to remember .. Because of this change some jewelry pieces had to be moved to different levels .. sorry for any confusion ..

My first 3 Levels are my bread and butter and will range from $15.00 – $50.00 ..  Levels 4 – 9 will be in a higher range from $50.00 – $250.00 ..

ARE YOU READY TO SEE MY FINAL REVEAL .. LET’S GET STARTED …….

Level I Series .. Adventure Earrings

Several new Adventure Earrings washed ashore for my final reveal ..

  13. First of all thanks for the 3 Dog Night! Love some music while I comment, it breaks up the stress level of saying just the right thing in the way I want to say it. “Joy to the World” that’s what you are going to bring with this collection. You have some beautiful pieces. I am blown away by the body of work you completed. Amazing and all the attention to detail! I’m still loving that first starfish piece with the burlap underlay. It’s my all time favorite.
