Build A Line Challenge part 3,, The reveal

by Paula Gaskill


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  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.  Broken_rose.jpg 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!!! 

Bird_brooch.jpgJust had to have one with a bird in it.


PicMonkey_Collage18.jpgam_rose_bouquet_2.jpgDid you know you can wear a brooch as a hair clip? Well, you can. Why not acessorize your hair.

   mint_rose_bouquet_necklace.jpghand_bouquet_p3.jpg  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.

   Thank you for stopping by and looking at my new line. All items will be right here on my website for you to  purchase if you're interested, simply go to the shopping cart. Please follow to all the other participants reveal.

    MISS PAULA! This is line is gorgeous. I am a sucker for roses anyway. You have done a great job, and you just keep it up, doll, because this is going to work out for you. It's going to work as long as you can keep them rose-eating dogs out of your work area! DANG, girl. That is NO GOOD. Bad puppies! But wanted to say, WELL DONE, I love ya, you done good. XOXO

    Morning Paula, Your roses are beautiful! I can't say enough about them, I love to look at them and imagine how you created them. I have worked with polymer clay before but have never tried making a rose. Your line is beautiful and creative, I really like how you made some of your brooches into convertible hair barrettes. My favorite is your rose bouquet necklace. That is gorgeous!

    Beautiful work! I haven't really gotten into polymer clay yet, (other than to squish it around to relieve tension, which is awesome!) so I am very impressed! I like the simplicity of some of the pieces, where the rose is the star of the show. One of my favorites is the hair clip with the rose and dangling pearls, it's really sweet!
