The Build a Line Challenge part III brought to you by B'Sue Boutiques

First and for most I want to thank Brenda Sue Landsdowne for her great generosity in sharing with us this master class it's been a wealth of information for all of us involved in this challenge.  Brenda Sue I loved learning how you evolved into what you are today and how you strive to continue evolving in a way that keeps you fresh and innovative in what you bring to you Creative groups, as well as your customers. As I've said before I love you bunches sweet lady always your the best. XOXO'

Now for the reveal of my whole Vineyard Collection. My collection is colorful, whimsical, and has a touch of elegance to it I loved creating it and i hope you love it.

This first piece is multi functional and can be worn as a brooch with fob, or without it, as well as along pendent, and it has two pin backs on it to give it this versatility.

This is a medium sized piece with lots of extras mostly B'Sue boutiques goodies.

I really enjoyed working with my chosen motif I love the grapes and fox stamping for some time and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to put it use.

As you can see I have a few earring and ring offerings that are cohesive with the rest of the pieces

Can't have a collection without some pretty bracelets. Oh and I forgot my other this other fun brooch too.

This last offering is a sub line and as you can see the grape stamping motif can evolve in many different ways and I already have more in store for this these beautiful grape stampings.

Isn't that across the hand ring fun I love how pastelish this collection is.

Well I hope you enjoyed your tour through my vineyard of jewels and my vineyard collection. I have very much enjoyed this stellar journey of learning and sharing with all of you and here's to a more productive and inovative future of creating. I love all of you bunches as always my creative buddies. XOXO
