Hello! My name’s Erin Whitacre from Girard, Ohio! Thanks for stopping by my blog to check out my new line as part of the B’Sue Boutiques Build a Line Challenge! Over the next three months, me and several other participants will be taking part in a master class aimed at creating, designing and refining an original line of jewelry.
It all started with this fabulous order I received from http://www.bsueboutiques.com:
The theme of my line is A Steampunk Trip Through the Looking Glass. My inspiration is Lewis Carroll’s timeless literary masterpiece, Alice in Wonderland. The story is, of course, a journey of imagination and wonder–and I hope to capture some of that magic with the pieces I’ll be creating. I picked this theme because it connects with my jewelry concept of Shattered Time.
In Wonderland, nothing is at is seems. Many of the characters, concepts and themes of the story will be evident in my line. While the final pieces will share similar traits, all of them will be unique and different in their own way.
Here is the first piece I conjured up in my head. This is a larger necklace concept, which incorporates several of the element from Alice, as well as utilizing a few of my own Shattered Time creations.
And I’ve also started a scaled down version, which will be a smaller necklace once completed.
Both of these items are incomplete, but are coming along quite nicely.
Over the next few months, I hope to develop more pieces and diversify the line–with the help of the rest of the members in my creative group, and B’Sue! Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions, and DEFINITELY enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
