B’Sue Boutiques 2016 Build a Line Challenge- the final blog hop and Big Reveal!

Welcome back everyone to the final blog hop for this years BALC with B’sue Boutiques!

It’s Erin from Shattered Time Jewelry here to reveal my new line based on Around the World in 80 Days. It is my interpretation of a voyage around the world with lots of transportation and an industrial steampunk vibe. I’ve been trying to keep it under wraps for the last few weeks and I can’t wait to take you all on this adventure!

Let’s start with a hot air balloon adventure. There are 2 different styles and choices of finishes.


Here are the matching earrings…


Then we can move on to the filigree balloons. They have a fire patina and add a hint of color! Each one is slightly different.


  
Here’s the earrings to match….


What around the world adventure would be complete without an airship!?!


  
The next part of the journey is on land….. Trains and automobiles! All rusty of course!


  
And what line would be complete without that over the top piece or two to tie it all together!?!


Here’s the big one….


This one is a little smaller….


And a little bracelet…..


I wanted to give lots of mix and match options…. Kinda like a make-your-own adventure!


  

The whole line all together!


Thanks for hopping in to see my line! Hope you enjoyed my “around the world in 80 days adventure” and I hope to see you all soon.

I just want to thank Brenda from B’sue Boutiques and all of her staff too for so much help along the way with everything I needed for my journey!

Hope to see everyone again soon for the next Shattered Time Jewelry adventure….. Under the sea perhaps….

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think–I would LOVE to hear from you!
Enjoy the rest of these amazing designers and keep hopping!

B’Sue Boutiques BALC Blog Hop #2

Welcome back everyone! This is Erin from Shattered Time Jewelry. This is the second installment of my new line… it’s a Jules Verne inspired Around the World in 80 days adventure!

In the Build a Line Challenge group with B’Sue Boutiques ( that’s where you find all the good stuff) we have been talking about developing our own styles based on preferences and design influences. We have discussed inventory and pricing along the way. Things are really rolling along at this point in the adventure, so let me take you to the beginning before I get too carried away…

These are the pieces that I gathered to start the adventure around the world.

img_1396-2

I started with these great filigree beads and decided to torch paint them to be hot air balloons.

img_1431

Then I added these really big beads that are becoming dirigibles, complete with working propellers!

img_1434

Here’s my work table laying out many of the earrings, necklaces, and bracelet ideas…

img_1435

These are my rusted pendant blanks that I think are going to be in the middle price point of my line… as you can see it is going to be a rusty industrial adventure. Shattered Time Style, of course!

IMG_1443

Of course this adventure would not be complete without an over the top statement piece.

B’Sue Boutiques Build a Line Challenge 2016- Blog Hop #1

B'Sue Boutiques Build A Line Master Challenge Class 2016
Well, hello welcome to the B’Sue Boutiques Build a Line Challenge 2016 blog hop #1. I hope everyone is having a blast checking out all of the participants pages.

My name is Erin and this is my Shattered Time Jewelry blog. I’m a repeat participant this year because last year was such a wonderful experience and I would not pass up the chance to do it all again.

Here’s my line from last year.

It was called “Through the Looking Glass” my own take on a steampunk/ industrial Alice in wonderland if you will.

This year I was inspired by a piece I made for a monthly challenge over at the B’sue Creative group ( on Facebook, that’s where all the fun is). The challenge was to make a piece that was inspired by a piece of vintage jewelry.

The one on the left is a vintage piece by Joseph of Hollywood. Mine is one the right. After making it with all the parts from B’Sue Boutiques ( that’s where you get the good stuff) I thought wow this really looks like a crazy flying balloon. So when I decided to build a line this year I thought why not go with that and be inspired by the king of steampunk Jules Verne
  So my theme this year is “around the world in 80 days” …. Shattered Time style that is. So I began to gather my parts and pieces. All of these are going to be parts to build this line.

Not exactly sure where it is all going just yet but as all of us work through the next few months I hope some awesome things develop!

Thanks for stopping or “hopping” by to check out Shattered Time and I hope to see you all again soon! Please visit all the other great creative people in this group by following the list below! I’m off to start my adventure!

Ringing in 2016 with a new line for Shattered Time 

2016 starts the beginning of another creative endeavor. I’m joining the B’sue Boutiques Build a Line Challenge 2016. There will be 3 blog hops as we work through our lines. I will post more dates and details soon! 
I’m starting this time reflecting on where I’ve been and where Shattered Time is going. 

Here’s my line from last year  
I loved my “through the looking glass” theme. At the beginning I think that I was so worried about the expectations and grand ideas that were in my head that I struggled to get things moving sometimes wondering if I could do it at all. With all the guidance and support from Brenda and all the members of last years group I suddenly found myself figuring it out. I started with the big statement piece to get it off my mind so to say and from there progressed to the rest of my line. 

The response from customers at the couple shows I did this year was wonderful! I sold a number of pieces to my line and gained more exposure for my brand. ( I never thought a year ago that anyone would ever think pieces were mine just by looking)

   
 
When the whole process ended I was initially creatively burnt out. Not sure where to next after pouring everything into a project for months. However I learned so much and gained so much insight into myself as an artist. It shaped the rest of my year and also carried through into pieces the rest of the year.

   
    
 
When it came to committing to this challenge again there was no question that it was something I needed to do. The structure and deadlines keep me on task and working towards a goal. 

I hope many follow the blog hops and support everyone in this challenge. Here’s to a fabulous and creative 2016!

The Change It Up Blog Hop

B'Sue Boutiques Change it Up Blog Hop

Welcome to my Shattered Time Jewelry Blog!

I started this Change It Up Challenge by choosing this fabulous stamping from B’Sue Boutiques.  

I decided to add some color with Swellegant bronze and and gold green patina and let it sit overnight.

Gathered up a bunch of gears and pieces from my stash and a ring blank from B’Sue Boutiques.  

Assembled the piece…… Here’s the back… 

This is the final result…. It’s a funky steampunk ring that is outside the box! 

  
  
Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop! Feel free to leave a comment!

I had an absolute blast building these.  The story was great inspiration and I learned so much watching everyone else put together their own line.  This was one of the most fruitful experiences I’ve ever had.  My website (which is lagging quite behind) will be updated VERY SOON, and several of these items will be for sale.  I think I succeeded in creating several price points in the “pyramid” style discussed in the group.  I want to thank B’Sue Boutiques ( they do have the best stuff!) and Brenda Sue Lansdowne for all the guidance over the last 3 months. Thank you all for joining me on this journey!

Sunday Night 



Took a weekend off of jewelry to support my wonderful husband and his band that I consider my friends as they released their 5 th full length cd.

They always support my creative outlets and I always have supported theirs for the last 17 years. So great to see everyone that came out to the show. Lots of familiar faces. It was a great night!



I did wear a few pieces from the line I’ve been working on and got good responses and feedback. This week will be spent taking pictures and getting ready for the blog hop on the 20th!
