There's a whole lotta thinkin' goin' on at the Build a Line Master Class Challenge this year!
We've been working hard to put names on our styles, how to pull them together, how to discover our customer and determine what sort of line we want to make.....
Will it be fashion?
Here is a wonderful high-fashion artisan-made piece from Allison Murray of Bordeaux and Pearl. Allison often shares her work with us at the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group
or will their line be a gift line, with personalization such as a stamped saying, something that says something about a person, something that appeals to a person's interests and hobbies?
These interesting pieces are made by artist Renee Hong of Fine and Dandy Jewelry. Renee was a member of our 2015 class.
Or would their pieces be of the type that could straddle both the fashion and gift market? Lovely ad done by Lori Prull Meyer for her line, Parisienne Girl. Lori was also in the 2015 class:
Lori's line has a strong fashion sensibility yet it could be sold handily in an upscale gift shop.
We're going to hear from our 2016 students, shortly. They will be posting the first of a series of three posts for the class, via BLOG HOP, on January 29, 2016
In their first post they will post photos of past work and if they would like, share their studio photos. Some have taken the class before, so they may tell you about last year as opposed to this year and how they plan to take their jewelry designing to the next level.
They will also be teasing you with bits and pieces from the line they hope to make in class, and will discuss their chosen themes.
The hops all be on Fridays for the 2016 class.
Without further ado, I'll reveal our students and their blogs:
Please mark your calendars and join us!
