Build A Line Design Challenge

Build a Line Design Challenge
In January I will be participating in a Build A  Line Design Challenge. It is a jewelry line class hosted by B'Sue Boutiques and will be from January-March with blogs, making jewelry, etc. You make up 5 pieces for your jewelry line.  Go to B'Sue Creative Group on Facebook and learn more about it. Hope to see you there.

Here's an update from B'Sue about the challenge

1.      The Build a Line Challenge will commence with sign ups  *****JANUARY 8-12*******

THESE DATES ARE FIRM.   NO ONE IS TO SEND ME ANYTHING PREVIOUS to that, and if you send it late, you will sadly be too late to participate. 

I am accepting 60 people for this challenge, no more.   So send your application sooner than later.

IMPORTANT!    I have decided NOT to have you message me here with your application.   Please do not message me at Facebook  with your application

VERY IMPORTANT:   send all applications to, my personal email.

REMEMBER   Jan 8-12  send to


---SHORT BUT SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION OF WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING for your line, your THEME,  AND USING WHAT B'SUE components    DO NOT SEND ME ANY PHOTOS..... unless I need to come back to you for more info and clarification

---Working blog, your name, blog name, URL that is correct and working

---you will hear back from me within 24 hours  about acceptance

---you may have to have an alternate idea if someone has chosen yours already

---60 entrants only, so if we fill up, you will have to observe this time  (I think 60 is ambitious....I would be happy with 25 who are serious about sticking it out and seeing what happens all the way through!)

2.   This challenge will have THREE BLOG HOPS!   All participants in the challenge must do all three hops.

The first is Friday January 23   you will tell us about yourself, your type of jewelry, what you hope to learn about yourself as an artist, and sketches and a sneak peak at what you have done so far.   Your line must have at least FIVE PIECES and must flow, all go together.   That can be whatever YOU think that is.  You don't have to show us everything, all five pieces, just give us the basics and tease us!  LOL

Keep in mind one of the judging factors and one the big things you want to learn by this, is WHAT PEOPLE BUY and WHY YOU THINK THEY WILL BUY THIS LINE.....How will it speak to them?   So keep that in mind.


The second is  Friday  Feb 20    this blog post is about progress.   You need to tell us about what you are discovering, things that are working, things that aren't, changes you are making, new ideas that are presenting themselves   WITH PHOTOS!   the more the better.   Have you test run any pieces you have made?   What have people said about them?   That sort of thing.   I'll give you more info on what we'll need from you for hop #2 after we do the first one, more guidance.

The third is the BIG REVEAL....your finished line.   Friday March 20     MANY PHOTOS, showing what you came up with, all of the pieces, and a short essay on how you hope this finished line will refine your look, make it more cohesive and identifiable, why you think it will sell and if you intend to reproduce it or not.   Tell us why it will be a springboard to getting you to the next level.

Your pieces should all be for sale and you might want to have them listed on your selling sites for the reveal date.   It could mean a fast sale for you, A LOT of people come in to observe these things.    Do not miss opportunities.

Then the judging begins.   Judges will be announced later.

Winner of the 150 gift certificate is announced APRIL 1, 2015
Winner of the 75.00 gift certificate is announced APRIL 1, 2015
