Build a Line challenge from B'Sue Boutiques, Cynthia Wainscott from Exotic Peru Jewelry Part 2

Hola everyone! I can't believe it's time for the second blog hop for the " Build a line challenge" Hosted by the amazingly knowledgeable and my friend Brenda Sue from B'Sue Boutiques.

In the first and introductory blog hop I revealed my first piece: my cuff bracelet "Always" for my " Always and Forever " bridal line, you can read all about it here.

When I started creating this line I thought of the kind of bride that will buy my jewelry, how will her dress would be. I imagined lace, vintage romace, delicate beauty, a piece that would complement her look. All this was my inspiration.

Thinking of the bridal trends and talking to different brides I found out that they are more likely to wear on their special day an statement bracelet, earrings and a very simple necklace or no necklace at all. Because of the response of my customers and wanting to create pieces that would not compete with the dress but will give the bride that "unique" something to complete their look I decided that my line will have just bracelets and earrings.

Meet Mrs. Lodder! She is wearing my first prototype for my "Always and Forever" line: an always bracelet!, isn't she gorgeous? (I also designed her mother's jewelry)

Most of the findings for this line come from B'Sue (did you know I have the honor to be a design team member?) and a constant element is resined paper, I just love the transparency and the romantic touch that adds to my creations. I used book pages, scrapbook paper, even old magazine papers and of course the best Jeweler's resin: ice resin.





Now for the reveal... I have two more finished pieces:

"Queen Bee"

I used the backless floral bezel, cut a blank that will fit and added the resin paper. The focal is embellished with Preciosa rhinestone chain, two little leaves and a beautiful silver plated bee. Rhinestone silver disk and a floral lace stamping cut in half make the sides of this lovely design.


I started with the large Victorian Frame bezel, added the Resin paper, the Preciosa rhinestone chain, I cut and altered a floral stamping for one end and the other side has many fun trinkets.

I hope you enjoyed reading and taking a peek of my creations, to all my fellow "Build a line" designers I promise to visit each one of your blogs :) and to all my visitors don't forget to check out the rest of the awesome designers that are part of the class:
