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!

    Oh wow Erin, you’ve been busy! Very busy 🙂

    Was really looking forward to seeing your finished line. LOVE each and every piece you made. You have a very recognizable look in my opinion and you did a great job with creating pieces for various price points. Well done!

    Those heart earrings are too cute. Hurry up and list them on your website for all the world to see and buy 🙂

    All the best with your line. You rock!

    Wow!! These pieces are right up my alley, and I cannot wait to share your line with friends. How and when can I start ordering?

    Amazing, Erin, how much you accomplished! Though I like all the pieces, I absolutely love the bracelets. the cuffs are to die for, the mini charm bracelets are such fun and there is one made, I think with the book chain that I really love. I always did like this theme of yours and you have really rocked it! Your photos are great and the line is definitely cohesive. You have an element of style that is uniquely yours. Well done! I’m following your blog now and I am sure Liam will be by. I’m happy to see some men’s items. I see that you found time to relax last week. Wondering about your husband’s band now, what kind of music and where do they play? Looked like a great time to me.


  4. Renee Hong

    Erin, what an amazing line! I love that belt buckle idea, wow. The glitter looks great, and the line is definitely cohesive. You have soooo many nice pieces! Congratulations on your new line! Renee H.


  5. Louise

    Oh Erin what amazing treasures you have. I love your line especially all of the details that go into your design. Your work is just spectacular. ~Louise


  6. Maria Clark

    Erin, you accomplished so much! I really liked the way you used the steampunk elements and the resin. Very nice. Such a privilege to work with you and the other artists during this challenge. Good luck to you.


  7. Jjan Peters

    You have been working hard! Love your work, your style and the sheer numbers of jewelry you have created. The cuffs are fab-you know I love my cuffs, even when they are made by others! I know you will be very successful with your line. Keep going!

    boy you are productive! I love all of it! I like you take on the resin pieces.. they are no so darn busy.. sometimes people just go too nuts on what they put in the resin, and a balance so much better, there is nothing wrong with alittle negative space. Keep up the great work!

    Erin, You are the total package, my dear! The poster child for cohesiveness; a diverse line but elements that make it possible to combine pieces into a multitude of parures. The photography is well done and I predict no problem in moving your works of art if priced right. I am blown away!

    Your line definitely reflect “shattered time”. They are not only cohesive but also representing your brand. I am so impressed by what you made. What a bless to be with you in this journey.

    What a fantastic collection of goodies, Erin! You’ve come up with some wonderful designs, and even though I’m not a stea’mpunk type of person, I just love them! Wonderful job! It’s been a great experience being in the class with you! 😉


  12. MJ Casady Copper Works

    Wow, your line is eye candy!!! Your pieces are so neatly done, I believe you hit this challenge out of the park!


  13. Alexandra Sefton

    Your line is so whimsical and so fun–makes me smile! From the eye in the big flower, to the gears on the hats, to the dangles teapot earrings from those resin bezels–they are SO fun! Never realized Alice was so steamy! LOL :):)
