Blog Hop 2 for B'Sue Build a Line Challenge (BALC) Class

Come See US at The Rose Sword Exclusively on Rubylane

So, here we are back for Blog Hop 2 of B'Sue's Boutiques Build a Line Challenge.

        While we have been looking at a lot of areas in the BALC this past month, some of those have been about what brings us inspiration in creation of our line or what sparks us!

For me, color has always been an inspiration.Much of the color combos in jewelry that are different really inspire me. Besides Mirian Haskell, Ian St. Gellar and Stanley Hagler have been two of my favs. I am especially in love with the baskets and butterflies.

These types of compositions in color and style really show me what I like.  I tend to stay with the monotones or the bohemian mix of colors.

Another artist who inspires me, especially with color mix is Barbier, a designer often found in women's magazines of the 1920's. Definitely Parisienne.  The counter balance of color is sometimes subtle, sometimes stark but always provides a counter balance.  I am fiend for Deco anyway.

Within this line, I am hoping to loosen up my designs a bit.  When I cage, I am too tight with the way I design not allowing for the freedom of flow.  And I want these babies to flow.  I am finding I am having to do, undo and redo for a looser form.

Onto the next place!  Have a fun time a do drop me a note!
