Build A Line Challenge from B'sue Boutique, Cynthia Wainscott from Exotic Peru Jewelry, Part One

Hola everybody! And welcome!
What an exciting moment this is; I haven't been on a blog hop for a long time, and I have the pleasure to be part of "B'Sue boutiques Build a line challenge"
My dear Brenda Sue from B'Sue Boutiques is always trying to help us to become better in what we do, and that's how Build a line started! She is "challenging us to challenge ourselves" to start a jewelry line.
Oh yeah... That's me by the way!

You can read more of my story on my previous blog post here, in there you'll find out the first jewelry I made was my wedding jewelry, and because of the connection I feel and for the many request of customers I have chosen to create a Bridal line: "Always and Forever"
I have created some Bridal Pieces in the past, and it was such a joy to see them on the beautiful brides here is the jewelry I designed for Mrs. Malan on her special day:

I made the chandelier earrings, the head piece and the cuff:

For my "Always and Forever" bridal line I wanted to create designs that are beautiful and take less time to make; something I could re-create and that's the challenge we are all trying to make for each of our lines. This is a process and for this first part of the hop I want to reveal you the first of my designs: the "always" bracelet. All the pieces from this bracelet came from B'Sue boutiques with exception of the little flower on top.

I started with The Victorian Backless brass Stamping mount and riveted on top the small Victorian frame bezel; previously I had resineted some old book pages and I added that to the middle of the bezel and collaged on top a little flower, a silver plated bee, the word "Always" on a copper black and to give it that blink and hide the ends of the paper I added Preciosa rhinestone chain. You can see it's a sizable bracelet with some pearls and more rhinestone disks. What I like most about this bracelet is that I can customize it by changing the sentiment in the middle, in that way even if I remake the design it will be unique to each person.

I had so much fun designing it and making it, here a sneak peak of some of the stampings I will be using for the rest of my line:

Thank you for stopping by and visiting, please don't forget to visit the rest of my fellow friends and designers who are taking this "Build a line" challenge with me.
