Nature is the Key to Happiness – Grande Finale!!!

This is me working in the living room floor so I could hang out with the boys on movie night.  My Studio moves around.


This has been a wonderful experience and learning opportunity for me.  My name is Leila Belcher of LeilaBeeDesigns and I have always loved making charm jewelry.  During this Challenge I discovered that I love it more than I realized.  I love finding unique beads and turning them into lovely,one of a kind charms that can then be added to bracelets or necklaces. We all like to have something unique.  I discovered that I could make a cohesive Jewelry Line and still make one of a kind pieces.  While all my Jewelry will have the same feel, flow and color scheme,no two will ever be exactly alike.

Please visit my Etsy Shop.for new listings.  This line will be posted soon for purchase.  Many components of this Line came from my favorite Shop, B’Sue Boutiques  and the Sponsor/Teacher/Mentor of this class, Brenda Sue Lansdowne.  Be sure to visit.  You won’t regret it.

I plan to let the pictures speak for themselves on this blog post.  I have created a seasonal nature themed line of jewelry with four pieces in each seasonal collection for a total of 16 pieces in the Nature is the Key to Happiness Line.   Each collection includes a long charm necklace with a skeleton key focal and a seasonal focal which was my inspiration for the line, a charm bracelet, a leaf cuff bracelet and leaf themed earrings..  They are as follows:

Winter – Hellebore – Colors of green, wine and cream with flowers and leaves.


Spring – Tulip-with pastel colors of pink, blue, yellow and purple with flowers, bees, butterflies and dragonflies.


Summer – Guillardia (Blanket Flower) with bright cheerful colors of Red, yellow, blue, orange and green with butterflies, dragonflies, bees, flowers, and  ladybugs.


Fall – Maple Leaf – with Fall colors of browns, greens and reds with pinecones, acorns, flowers and leaves


I already have expansion ideas for this line and I am very excited about its debut next week at the Master Gardeners Conference in Cullman, Alabama.  Price points are as follows:

Charm Necklaces- $70

Charm Bracelets- $35

Cuff Bracelets-$28

Earrings – $15

I have thoroughly enjoyed this Master Class/Contest and have learned more than I ever dreamed possible.  May everyone have success with their lines and may all our dreams come true.
