Absolutely fabulous! Can't wait to see the whole collection! Thank you for all the opportunities you provide for this group!

Marcia Tuzzolino

Love, love, love, the line you'Re going to create, Brenda! That chocolate is amazing and it looks like fudge frosting. You know those little round silver cake/cookie decorating things called non-pareils (sp?)...just a thought. Thanks for being our mentor through this journey, and for all your hard work and support, Brenda! You. Are. Awesome!


I love your creativity. Your new line names ar just so SWEET. I think this is an awesome beginning of your new line. I am so happy you are sharing your jewelry making with u. What a honor to have met you and thanks for being my Mentor.


Thank you so much for sharing more about your history and revealing your new line. It has been an honor to be in your class and I am thankful for the opportunity to learn from you. Chocolate - who doesn't love it?!?!?

Gina-Marie Hammer, Tangles, Twists and Treasures

One of the first things I did, after discovering your videos was read your about page. Brenda Sue "the woman" has always had my admiration, or I'd have never joined the group. This line, though - wow! - brave, adventurous. I always look at the pieces with finishes and my mind goes blank. I come up empty. This will be where we see Brenda Sue "the Jewelry Paragon", I think. ;)


This is exciting. Im referring to all it it. it would be a treat to see pics of you in your former production line. Your latest effort based on your "old" line is splendid. Love all your new BALC pieces too. Woohoo. Exciting!

Jann Tague

Oh, B'Sue, what a super idea for a line .... I can't wait to see all of the YUMMY ideas you come up with for it! Thank you for sharing your story of the 'early days' ... I can just see a group of joyful ladies happily creating. Your new line is going to be fabulous, and I'm so glad you're creating one along with us. Thanks again for the opportunity for us to learn and create together. <3

Sharon P

I love your concept of sugar, everything sweet and yummy, like your jewelry. I am particularly intrigued by the Vanilla Frosting line as I love shabby chic jewelry.

I look forward to this creative journey with you and our group, oh fearless leader! Now I am hungry and need chocolate!

Susan Bowerman

Brenda, you continue to amaze and inspire me. What a clever, clever, clever theme! And thank you for sharing with us how your theme will have legs...with the potential for a host of variations. That fact alone is why you are the mentor and I am a mere student. I have so much to learn; little did I know I would learn something this morning before my coffee got cold! This line is going to be glorious. Thank you for sharing your thought process with us and for giving me yet another "aha" moment! Wow...just wow! I'm in awe.

Ingrid Anderson

Ok let me try again! I am so looking forward to what you will be creating. Such a fantastic idea! Sounds like so much fun and I am sure it will be successful! Ingrid


I love that color of brass and I'm really looking forward to seeing your line as well as the rest of this years class. Makes me all nostalgic for last year! Sugar Shop sounds sweet! <3

Ginger Hammond

I can only echo the other comments. I want to own a piece from each line. Have to admit that I am jealous of all the chocolate components.

Susan Bolton

I absolutely love your idea! The colors are fabulous.You are so clever, I know your line will be a great success. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. It has been a treat and an honor to be in the class. Little did I know on that Saturday afternoon of surfing the net that my life would be changed forever by meeting you.


Oh I'm in love with your new line already and it looks good enough to eat, it is totally delicous. Love your old line you sold in the 90s and I would still buy and wear it's romantic charm is so delightful. Good luck rto all of ypou on this magical creating journey and I will be watching it a
Ll unfold. Love you bunches Always my muse!

Karen Mansell

Loved reading your blog and learning a little
more about your journey. Absolutely love the
chocolate brass. I look forward to what you will
be creating! <3

Elisabeth Wilks

Love your post Brenda Sue! Your original line was so unique and pretty but your new idea for your line is exciting and helpful. How you can step out your line and have different lines incorporated under one main line. I am really looking forward to seeing how everything developes. Also I have to say I love that bow! I do not normally like bows but this one is really beautiful.


Sorry my comments went to the wrong spot. But it is there below.

Deb Jacobs

This looks so exciting. I would love to follow this group and hopefully
Participate at some point

Sue Shade

I just love the idea behind your sugar shop line. Brilliant idea Brenda. So looking forward to seeing you roll it out.

Renee Hong

OH MY! Sugar shop...I just love all of these ideas you have! I am sure this will appeal to so many women! I have always been a big fan of your chocolate brass. I sure hope you decide to bring it back some day. I still have a plastic bin marked "Chocolate brass" and there are still some hoarded pieces in it! Your pink roses and the cameo look fantastic on the chocolate background. I am so excited to see your new line!


Brenda I love chocolate! What a wonderful idea for a line. I love all your pictures too, they look so yummy! I can see so much potential for sublines. You could go on and on with this. I am so inspired by you and all in the group, it makes me want to spend more time but I am determined to stay balanced. Enough about that I can't wait to see more of your pieces. I guess I will just have to wait. Thank you again for all you do with and for us :D

Beth Trubman

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I think my mouth dropped open when I saw that first picture of the chocolate pieces. OMG, beautiful! I am really looking forward to seeing the finished line. STUNNING!

Alison Huie

Why do I have the munchies all of a sudden? I absolutely love the chocolate color findings. And I love the idea of adding just a touch of color. Can't wait to see your stuff!

Mary Reckmeyer

I am loving the class! I adore your "frosting" and and all the beautiful choxie pieces. Thank you so much for throwing this shin dig and inviting us all to it.

Lyn reeve

Your blog is as expected outstanding as is your past present and future jewellery...I love the chocolate box idea for the new line..it is going to be a winner

Donna Parry

Thank you for hosting and sharing all your wealth of knowledge. I love everything that you make. No dought in my mind it will great. I'm so glad you'll creating a line with us! xoxoxo

Jennifer Merrill Williams

B'Sue, I was sipping Ghirardelli hot chocolate when I discovered your "Chocolate Frosting" designs in your new Sugar Shop line. How perfect is that? I never get tired of hearing your stories of how you developed your business and made it through with determination. More power to you and have a great time with your new line!

Janet Calardo

Love your blog and jewelry lines! Can't wait to see everyone's creations and read all the blogs!

Shari Gardner- SLG Jewelry Designs

Hi Brenda Sue, I absolutely love your idea theme of the Sugar Shop. I can't wait to see everything you make and love that with this class, we are on the same level within starting the lines, so we can learn from watching how you put your pieces together. We'll be able to get a glimpse into how you're thinking and hopefully can learn from you in creating our own lines. I so appreciate everything that you have done to teach us and that you are so openly generous in teaching us, so that someday, some of us can be just as successful as you are. On a personal note, I want to thank you for everything you have taken your time to show me and help me to become a great designer. You have not only become my teacher/mentor, but also a dear friend and I hope that we can always be friends and maybe sometime soon, I will have my husband drive me down, so I can meet you face to face and give you a huge hug. I might even bring you a box of chocolates. So, I know I'm repeating myself, but thank you just doesn't seem to be enough to say and I don't know how I will ever repay your kindness and generosity. XOXO

Tammy Adams

Your new line is looking and sounding delicious. It's a great theme and the titles you are toying with will be a draw as much as the designs themselves. But you probably knew that, given all your experience and expertise. I'm looking forward to the final reveal.

Clare Nemeth

I LOVE your theme idea and LOVE chocolate ox! Will definitely be watching for it to be stocked. :) Thanks for all your inspiration and sharing your knowledge with us!

Diana Buynak

Awesome blog post as always! I loved that you shared with us your 90's jewelry line and your plans for the future. It is great to see your work progress over the years. I think you have really thought out your new line. It will definitely be a huge undertaking - but well worth it. Chocolate brass looks amazing, use it in a jewelry line and market it as a treat line - genius! I can feel myself developing a sweet tooth already!

Carole Carlson

Mmm, your line sounds delicious. LOVE the chocolate brass.

Fran Sitton

I always enjoy reading about your journey. The sub-levels of your line are very creative.

Barbara Kelley

I love your new line ideas. Can't wait for more chocolate! Very glad that you decided to also make a line with us this year.And for all of the newsletters, videos, blog post.


Thank you so much for this class and letting me be a part of it; we're learning SO much, and it's awesome you're creating a line right along with us!
I mean, I knew the name of the finish had chocolate in it, but Holy Cow, when you put it this way, your pieces really do look good enough to eat! I love the way you've broken it down into themes within themes, too. I'm excited to see the rest!

Lee Koopman

Brenda, I am loving the chocolate line! What a great idea! I don't know why people did not warm up to the chocolate brass. I think it is just beautiful! I love the look of it and so many colors would go just perfect with it! Your ideas are great..........the themes. The names alone will generate attention!

Lori Beekman

I am always amazed at how well you pull all the pieces together. You make it all seem so easy. I love the names for your line, and they just fit so perfectly. The names create an image by themselves. I bow to the master.... 😉❤️❤️❤️
