I feel like it took far too long for me to get this new collection out in the world! But, I'm glad I took my time because I'm really happy with the result and super excited to share it with you all! All of the pieces are a combination of casting, acid etching and hand fabrication, with the detailed sections of the pieces coming from an original drawing of mine which was acid etched into metal and cut into various shapes. I made the decision to cast those models to ensure that everyone got the section of the design that I originally intended for each piece. Casting took a little longer than anticipated but all good things come to those who wait!
The best thing about this collection? The awesome price point! I worked hard to keep the prices down on this new collection, keeping everything under 50$! The prices range from $32-$48. Perfect for gifting and a fairly guilt-free purchase for yourself :) I want my jewelry to be accessible to people, and these economic times I really wanted to push myself to come up with a collection that kept that in mind, without sacrificing style or quality. How'd I do?
Anyway, since my collection took a bit longer than expected, I don't have as much time as I would have liked before the holidays to get a feel for which pieces get the most response etc. Here's where you guys come in :) I need your opinions to help me plan for my holiday season! Which pieces do you personally respond to the most? Which pieces would you love to receive or give as a gift? Any and all opinions are welcome and would be SO SO SO helpful to me in my efforts to frantically prepare for the fast approaching shopping season :) So please, comment away and let me know what your thinking! Oh yeah, and feel free to check out the new pieces in more detail in my Etsy shop!
