Update: Centerpiece bracelets

Last month, I watched a webinar on creating new product lines, which introduced me to the idea of collections.  I realized that while I do have some products (like angel pendants or collaged word pendants) that could fall into that category, I have a lot of general jewelry that falls under “wire wrapped gemstone jewelry” without a specific theme.  So, I’ve been working on a new collection: Centerpiece bracelets.  Mostly, it’s assembling already existing pieces and charms, but I’ve also experimented with making my own centerpiece connector.  Here are a few pictures.

They remind me a bit of watches with a focal point in the center.  There are so many possibilities for the centerpiece connection, from buttons to charms to wirewrapped or wirewoven pieces.  It’s been fun to play with this design and see what unfolds.

Bracelets!

I’ve been on a quest to diversify my jewelry inventory and add to my available collection.  In this case, this has meant playing with bracelet designs.

It’s been fun to pick out beads and come up with different ideas.

Jewelry design is such an intuitive process for me, and it’s so satisfying to see the finished products.  I’m looking forward to making more!

Recent Works: July Gallery

Just a few of my recent works.  I’ve been busy learning how to market myself on Facebook and Instagram while also consistently making new pieces.  I’ve sold a few items on Etsy, too.  I’m loving what I’m learning and realizing that it takes a lot of persistence and patience!  I am determined to continue doing what I love and sharing it with others.
