Collections


So far so good, on the collections!  I have chunky necklaces, layered pendants, linked braclets, and chunky beaded bracelets. Today I will work on Harbinger Collection tin, and some earrings to round it all out. Maybe I should do one more necklace collection? or one more Bracelet collection? Any suggestions would be helpful!! Leave a comment!


Been sitting her all morning trying to psych myself up to get my butt to the gym. It's tough. I've had a few days off and got used to sitting on my fat ass. But I HAVE to go. I HAVE TO. No EXCUSES now. NONE.


I also have some new thoughts to revamp my jewelry display for my show. I am really excited about this upcoming show. It was juried and I'm still kind of amazed and humbled that I got into it! It is a pretty popular craft show in the Utica area.  If you're in the upstate NY area, you should definitely stop in to say Hi!


I'll also be working on some instructions for some magazine publication deadlines, this week. AND I have some other really exciting news too- but don't really know if I can announce it yet. I am going to be on a really awesome design team for a component company.  More info on that soon, I hope!

  1. Beautiful! I bet someone without a designer's eye would not even realize these are "collections." I can see the similar compositions and repeated elements, but each piece still is completely unique. This is a great way to crank out more pieces without exhausting your designer muscles. Great job!

    1. Thanks Deb! That was my thought exactly- plus sometimes all the stuff I have available even overwhelms ME! So I figure, if I feel that way, my shoppers may too.

    I love your layered pendants and linked bracelets! Will you be adding similar designs to your store or is this for the upcoming show only. Hope you have fun at the upcoming show. Peggy

      Hi Lorelei,

      Thank you so much!
      I love the layered pendant necklace, the second to the left, with the blue and the lovely animal...and also the linked bracelet, first from the top.
      I am not sure if I can afford both, or if I have to choose one of them...
      So kind of you to offer! Looking forward to it :o)
      Peggy

  5. I think you have it well balanced with those collections. All lovely pieces.
    I might think that gift-buyers would go for necklaces over bracelets, just because they wouldn't be sure of size for bracelets - not sure. So if you feel you need more, I would go with more necklaces.

    Excited for you to have new projects in the wings.

  7. You asked for suggestions. My suggestion is to add another necklace collection--linked. The collections look great and are a wonderful idea. I know that when I make jewelry I tend to make similar pieces in a sitting (marathon session!) because I'm thinking "I could make this design with these beads or those beads. Heck, do them both!"

    I'm looking forward to hearing your news. And good luck at the show!

  9. Love your collections Lorelei. I recently participated in our local artists studio tour and by far bracelets were more popular from what I had to offer. I see you have been very busy using you new found time. I am so excited for you.

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump
    out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Appreciate it

  12. What a fine collection you have there! And the best thing about them is the fact that they can be done easily because you are good enough to share it to your avid readers. Keep up the good work!
