Build a Line Challenge from B'Sue Boutiques Part One! Showcasing Elisabeth Wilks of Wearable Art by Lizzie

 My artisan jewelry adventure began about seven to eight years ago. I created an all-crystal necklace with a matching pair of earrings.

Following this, I experimented using many varied jewelry techniques. I tried beadweaving!

and still love doing it for a good challenge!

Then I moved on to polymer clay.

I still enjoy working with polymer clay, but it is messy and time-consuming.

Beadweaving and polymer clay projects produced fun results but they were not fully satisfying to me.
About that time I began working with filigree, stampings, cabs, crystal, and beads. The light went on and I have loved working with mixed media projects from then on.

The title "Neo Victorian" showcases the feel I want for my line of jewelry. I have already gleaned from Brenda Sue's modules and excercises from our BALC class that this truly expresses what I want for my line.

The title ultimately expresses a combination of the Victorian and Edwardian periods with a dash of Art Nouveau and the Modern periods.

The pictures below are some hints at what I will be developing!

I am excited as to where the rest of this BALC class will takes us. Thank you Brenda Sue Lansdowne for all your hard work on this course.  Visit her online store B'sue where I acquired these beautiful stampings.
Stay tuned for our next blog hop in February. Thank you for taking the time to read my musings.

The BLOG HOP starts here! Please go on to enjoy the rest of my classmates' blogs!
