The day has finally arrived, and to think it all started with this brooch.
This one flower has created a world of possibilities for me. As I reveal my new line to you, you will also see. I am currently working on new ways to use the rose with Brenda's mixed metals, and brass stampings http://www.bsueboutiques.com/ I truly don't think I would have explored this without her. She has been honest with her opinion about things, and most of all a big supporter, I can't think her enough for pushing me to take this class! This class has been very intense to say the least, but well worth all of it. It has taught me so much. One of the main things that it taught me was by creating a line not only does it need to make sense, but for sure it keeps you on track. Mainly because of the similarities in your line. I can't promise you a rose garden though. I'm known for the roses that I make, and you will continue to see them. You may not see them in everything I make, but for now they are part of my line. I've been testing new ways to use the rose, and I have gotten some great results. That in itself will be a great line, probably a subline as well.
Romancing the Rose Line.
I chose the brooch, because I wanted to start with something simple.
I had already done one. Like I said earlier, alot of obstacles. Remember the dogs I introduced you all to on the last blog, well they did it again. They ate this rose. My fault; shouldn't have laid it down. Something about these roses. They even jump up to the counter to get them, last week they ate about 10 of them. This was also a brooch that I was adding a chain to, so it could be worn as a necklace .
This was a simple brooch that I had an Aha moment with. This will probably be a new line for me sometime in the near future. What a beautiful stamping that could be made into a nice simple necklace.
The Victorian Stampings that I used for my line are to die for I just can't say enough about them. They speak for themself!!!
Just had to have one with a bird in it.
Did you know you can wear a brooch as a hair clip? Well, you can. Why not acessorize your hair.
Here's the bouquets. By no means were these easy to do. The roses in the necklace are built around a filigree bead. When doing this cluster pendant, I had another Aha moment that you'll see coming soon in a subline.
