Build a Line Design Challenge Part Three ... Pamela Anger of Novegatti Designs

         The third and final blog hop of the Build a Line Challenge by B'Sue Boutiques has finally arrived!  I'm Pamela Anger of Novegatti Designs, and my assistant is as usual, Toby.  ;)  Welcome!
       The Build a Line Challenge class by B'Sue Boutiques has been an experience that I have very much enjoyed.  I'll always treasure it as not only a learning experience about jewelry lines ... but about myself.  Over the past three months, the discussions about jewelry collections, lines, branding, marketing, packaging, and more have been very enlightening and informative.  But I've also learned a lot about ME, and how I work.

      I've discovered that my vision of cohesive jewelry lines and my desire to create one-of-a-kind art jewelry can coexist happily!  I didn't think that was possible, but I've learned that following your heart while listening to your instincts is key.  While jewelry artists need to be aware of trends and current styles, that doesn't necessarily mean following the crowd.  Nothing makes me happier than making a unique piece of jewelry, but how cool is it that I've now learned how to turn that one piece into an exciting and cohesive line if I choose to!  
     I'm still working on 'branding' for Novegatti Designs.  My jewelry style and look is pretty well established .... vintage-inspired mixed media art jewelry, focusing on brass components, polymer clay,  and glass beads.   Still in the works are things on the business side:  a logo and a consistent look for my online presence, packaging, etc.  The pawprint-in-heart tags will most likely stay, and perhaps a logo will develop from them.

        My 'Tre Rose' jewelry line for this Build a Line Challenge has come together nicely, and will continue to grow with new pieces.  With necklaces,   earrings, bracelets, and pins in several styles, the choices get even better when the customer can choose custom colors too.  The polymer clay roses are all handmade, so the possibilities are endless with style and color combinations!  Most of the line will range from $12 to $60, so the pieces are affordable yet exquisite.  The jewelry pieces all coordinate with each other; brass chains, glass pearls and Czech faceted beads, and hand-tinted brass all tie them into one pretty vintage-look package!

       Without further ado, I present Novegatti Designs' Tre Rose Line ... a step back in time to a different world ...

"Infinity"   This series is comprised of dramatic vintage-inspired jewelry, using mixed metals, lovely roses, and glass bead chains.  Right now this sole necklace takes the spotlight, but more in this series will be forthcoming.

"Eternity"   The series for the romantic!  A pretty Battenburg lace-look brass filigree, adorned with polymer clay roses and hand-tinted leaves, hang out with more glass pearls and faceted beads.  The four designs were inspired by the four seasons, but other combinations of colors and leaves would look great too.

"Serenity"   This series of pieces are my favorites!  A simple and beautiful design on a lovely filigree, and it's just right for anytime-wear  So many other color ideas are possible ....  

"Tranquility"   A classic series of jewelry with more roses, of course, and pretty brass lace filigree and leaves.  Simple, yet elegant.

"Unity"   Keep your love close with classic rose-covered heart necklaces ... perfect for gifts in any color, for yourself or loved ones!

"Harmony"   Bracelets are always fashionable, and these unique pieces will make any outfit special.  Bracelets are my favorite piece of jewelry!

"Discovery"  Discover brooches and pins ... they're back in style!   Several variations give options to pin one on coats, dresses, sweaters, even purses.  Ivory and cream look so well together, but so would other colors.

"Amity"   What wardrobe is complete without earrings?  Coordinating with the rest of the line, these earrings add the finishing touch ... more earrings to come!

       And that is my new jewelry line, Tre Rose ..
inspired by the three "I Love You" roses that my father gave my mother many years ago.  Design possibilities in this line are limitless with color choices, which will make anyone feel special!  

        I wish to give a big heartfelt "Thank You!" to Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B'Sue Boutiques for teaching this class with patience, integrity, and style, and for freely sharing her knowledge ... this class will always stay with me.  And big hugs to her and my classmates for making this a wonderful journey over these past months!

       Thank you for stopping by my blog and checking out this new line ... please feel free to hop along with the links below and see more gorgeous lines by my fellow jewelry artists!  And stay tuned to my Facebook page for the Tre Rose line to be for sale soon ...
