Part Two - Build A Line Challenge from B'sue Boutiques by Linzi Alford of MagPie In The Sky

My kitty "helpers" are all worn out !

Pretty sure I wouldn't doodle on my own cats paw........
Well here we are for the second hop of the  B'sue Boutiques  Build A line Challenge, where nearly 60 participants have been studying under the guide and tuition of Brenda Sue who is generously sharing her enviable experience in the industry with us all.

To find out more about the challenge click here to go to the B'sue blog post which explains the principles and aims behind the challenge.

During the last month since Blog Hop part one we have all been diligently learning about how a jewellery line is created from one showstopper one- of -a- kind creation through to a marketable affordable line.

We have shared inspirations, had pricing discussions and many other topics- all so helpful.
 Brenda made a video  (click here to go to Youtube to watch it)  that for many was a  "Eureka !" moment- it clearly shows how to develop a cohesive line of  jewellery.
These are my most favourite B'sue component ever!

Chain , chain , chain , chain......

 I have continued to work on my photo/ resin line -for me it was all about expanding the range to show some of the potential in the design. While they are all variations on a theme, it is such a versatile idea it would be a pity not to investigate the many possibilities- positively RUDE not  to !
I will be investigating how to make some less costly pieces while still staying true to the concept- you better come back again in a month to see the finished results- I will look forward to seeing you then!
 Please do leave me a comment below- is lovely to hear from you all.
